The 2010 Olympics are coming. They're just up the street. Literally. The TODAY show will begin broadcasting from our local mountain on Tues Feb 9th. Matt Lauer will be going by my house any day now and I'm sure I won't know.
There have been truckloads of stuff going by for these important Americans and I haven't noticed or cared.
I honestly haven't been that excited about it. Until this weekend when 17foreverLisa mentioned Pierce and Rob on the Today show talking about Remember Me I was in a bit of denial. Suddenly I was struck with the realization that with Matt Lauer and Al Roker might come other celebrities. I have tried in vain today to find the Today show guest list for the rest of the month but I guess they don't post that sort of thing too early. Then it wouldn't be current enough to be called the TODAY show would it. Sigh...I'll have to settle for Michael Buble having a free concert in my backyard.
In addition to the celebrities come athletes. Is it sad that I'm not impressed by any of them except the figure skaters? Even the hockey players don't get me excited. You know why? I've been too busy looking at this.

It's also sad that Mr. TC spent thousands of dollars on Olympics tickets but I don't know what events I'm going to. I can, however, tell you when RPattz will be on TV (March 1st or 2nd on Jimmy Fallon and the View) and also what magazine KStew is currently gracing the cover of (Vanity Fair).
It's downright pathetic that I received an email this morning from a dear relative who loves my blog but was asking politely if I needed an intervention. So for dearest PJ, I'm quite happy to have Rob and his twilight world shoved up my ass for now and don't feel like having it removed just yet but thanks for asking. I love you too sweetie! (truly :))
The one thing that has caught my attention with these Olympics is the sheer volume of people coming to town. We are expecting 5,000 athletes and officials plus 10,000 media members. The Vancouver HostCity website claims 2.3 million attendees. What? Is that number for real?
Somehow Captain Condom and the Safegames crew handing out 250,000 condoms in 2 weeks doesn't seem like enough anymore. It seems that more people in town means big business for sex. I guess all those nubile young'uns with their drunken debaucles in the street will need a good safe outlet.
One of the best sex shops in town is called Womyn's Ware
|No, that's not me|
and they're offering a special Olympics promotion.
|Their special Olympics penis-rings|
• 10% discount to all event ticket holders
• free Sex Toy Guide (with $5 coupon) to all accredited press
• Podium Product: Free Clit Pod to all gold, silver and bronze medal winners! It's like a little mini Canadian Touque souvenir!!
• Lube Luge Special: Free Slip Kit to registered lugers
I kid you not! Good thing I have event tickets, always nice to get a good discount.
But sadly I don't think they carry this sparkle peen previously posted about on Twitarded many moons ago
|Wonder if it comes perpetually cold too "shivers"|
The number of people coming to town also has many wondering
How many Olympics fans are Twihards too?
I honestly couldn't find a single site on Twilight and the Olympics together. I expected some of the twilight tour people in town to have some kind of promotion targeting, you know, us crazy twihard folk. But I found nothing. I'm not sure if this is the Olympics people shutting them down (has been known to happen around these parts) or just lack of foresight and planning on their parts.
After my epic forest hike to the Break Up Log for Mrs. P. at Twibite last week I wondered how many people will be coming to my neighbourhood trying to find the same thing? After all, out of 2.3 million attendees there have to be some twilight fans. I mean there is figure skating happening here and with figure skating comes moms and teenage girls. The key twilight market.

If anyone knows of anything twilight related in town for the next couple of weeks, let me know what I'm missing. I'm sure there are a few out of you out there who may be coming out to Vancouver very soon who would appreciate more info too.
Or maybe you crazies are just saving your flight out for Forks in September with the Twitarded crew :) or to see if they will film Breaking Dawn here. If you do come to Vancouver give me a buzz. After all, you wouldn't want to miss Mrs. P. in her nightie.
Of note, I will be cross-posting a nice clean version of this post to Mr. TC's blog Average Traveller (you're first on my blogroll honey).
|Sometimes clean can be refreshing|
Go check it out (and no my clean post isn't up yet, still need to take a shower and get rid of the Sparkle Peen). That blog comes from the more sane side of the bed but I might give myself a quick rinse and head over there once a while to give my two cents. I'll let you ladies know when I do.
