Just had probably the worst day of my working life ever, and have to front up and talk about it first thing tomorrow morning. Make or break time for demonstrating my skills in Not Crying At Work In Front Of Important People. Honestly don’t know if I have it in me.
HALP does anyone know how to install a VPN service on an iPad? I’ve googled it and tried quite a few links but none of them work
13 new episodes of House of Cards are about to drop in t-3hrs, and I have half a tub of caramello icecream in the freezer. Happy Valentine’s Day to me.
Male commentators on Greta Small’s downhill ski run today (she’s 18 and it’s her first Olympics):
Commentator 1: “she’d be hoping just to finish the run today, wouldn’t she?”
Commentator 2: “well no, she’d be aiming to finish in the top 20 and/or get a PB”.
Thank goodness for commentator 2. Why is it so difficult for men to take women’s sport seriously?
I have a hard time thinking they’d ever speak of male competitors with such contempt. Kent Callister is also 18 and competed in the men’s half pipe final, finishing 9th (which is a fantastic result). But the way the commentators built it up and spoke about him before his run was acting as though he could win it (which arguably just by being in the final he could have).
