marlon and i spent most of our weekend taking care of the ironing in front of the tv, which was tuned into the beijing olympics. it’s the first time i’ve ever really sat down to watch an olympics and it just blows my mind!
i found myself shrieking out loud when romania’s poor marian dragulescu landed flat on his ass at the very end of his floor routine, and again when he went completely ker-SPLAT on his face on his second vault… after an almost-perfect, gold medal shoo-in first vault. my heart broke for him… and i’m not even really into gymnastics! i mean, we almost expect to be awash in glorious olympic moments that bring us to our knees in awe, but i didn’t know olympians could fuck up so badly either! either way, it’s great tv!
one more reason to shriek: spain’s bad boy hottie gervasio deferr (okay ang bantot ng pangalan), who won a silver for his floor routine.
