The Olympics are going on—have you heard? Unfortunately I don’t have cable and can’t stand Bob Costas (because of reasons) so I’ve mostly been keeping up via social media, NPR, and of course my own personal Olympics correspondent, Bestie Danielle. We’ve had some… unique gchat interpretations of the events thus far, though I think even the Russian judge would have to give us a 10 for sheer enthusiasm.
Danielle: Have you been watching women’s gymnastics?
Me: some? not all
Danielle: oh man. Mckayla Maroney on the US team is Regina George
During the team event, all the US gymnasts were getting ready to walk away in their little straight line together, and one girl was like, totally not in single file. And you couldn’t hear anything they were saying, but McKayla clearly snapped around and told her to get her ass in line. Then turned back around and pranced away.
Danielle: And then this happened. And I loved her even more. She is my spirit animal.
