I didn't believe.

this is a special non-lunch post to say congratulations to all of canada's athletes who competed at the olympics. I don't need to say that it's the most golds any country has ever got in the winter olympics, cuz the news has already said that enough times. I wonder, though... is it also the most events the winter olympics have ever had? anyway, well done. with all the ads and that stupid song asking me if I believe, I had to say no. but hey, I guess I believe now. click on this pic of the moment canada won the record-breaking gold to see it wiggly.

comments: more olympic talk. on the weekend, I won this contest where the globe and mail is giving away olympic tickets. the tickets were for a medals ceremony thingy. it was pretty neat. although, I left shortly after nelly furtado started her set. the thing that blows my mind is that we've had large stadium concerts for decades now. but we still haven't figured out how to make it not sound like crap, you know? it's crazy. click my lunch to see the dude who also won some tickets in this contest. if you look in the background, on the left, you will see the people who were in charge of giving out these tickets.
