Well, Chicago got knocked out of the bid for the Olymipcs in the first round of voting. And honestly, I am glad. Illinois has too much stuff that needs to be fixed first, at least in my opinion. I mean, the Olympics are great but honestly I just don't think we were really prepared to run them. I just wish we hadn't spent so much on the bid itself - that money could have gone to things like schools and roads and violence prevention. Plus everyone who wanted them was so cocky about it - I wouldn't have voted for that kind of attitude either.
Ok, enough about that. The kitties are good - I picked up a new carrier and Barney and Virgil were immediately playing in it. They play in the old one too - they don't seem to mind that it takes them to the vet (even though at the time they hate it). I am in the process of getting new carriers for all the cats - we have 5 but I hate 2 of them. Three are nice and two are just too small in my opinion. Eventually those 2 will be replaced.
Other than that it is a quiet day. Tomorrow I am hoping to post a special post - it will be #300 and also, tomorrow would have been my Dad's 76th birthday, so I want to post a bit about him - if I can convince the computer to cooperate. I usually have to reboot 5 or 6 times to post from home, but for tomorrow it will be worth it.
So I guess that is all for now - I am trying to find a pink that is dark enough to read in Google reader. I know someone mentioned it was a bit tough, and I had noticed the same thing. We will see how this one does.
ETA: Congrats to Rio for getting the games - they are the best choice (to me at least) since these will be their first Olympics in Brazil.
