It is Olympic season. And being the good Canadian I am, I could not pass up the chance to celebrate with you. With the men's hockey misery of the '88 Calgary Olympics a faded memory, we Canadians cried and shouted with the success of Alexandre Bilodeau, thrilled for the home court curse to be a thing of the past. Have you an Olympic moment that touched your heart? I love them all. Watching years of dedication and training climaxing in what for some is but a moment is breathtaking to me. I cry when they fall. I clap when they land their jumps. I hold my breath as they wait to see if their times and scores are enough. Man, I love the Olympics!
Back to our week... I will spare you my tales of a curling bonspiel victory in the ninth grade, or of skating lessons at age 4, but I will ask you to join me this week in participating in our writeclickscrapolympics.
Get your slide ruler waxed and ready. Your photos sharpened and sized. Feel free to get some cool new wcs gear as well. Events begin tomorrow. I'd suggest a good night sleep (and refraining from all poppyseed--best to be safe!).
To begin, we would love for you to leave a comment telling us from whence you come. Our stats show that we have had visits from 136 countries. Honestly, that blows me away. Our team represents four of those 136: Australia, Canada, France, and the United States. (Though, some of us are expats and immigrants, who may call another land home. If this is you, too, tell us both your resident country as well as where you call home.)
Assignment #2 is to email someone who lives in a country different than you and tell them about us and invite them to come visit. Let's see how many of those 136 can come visit this week!
Thank you for stopping! Go buy a shirt and we will see you tomorrow!
