Why I am glad the {summer} Olympics only come around every 4 years

Don't get me wrong - I am just as American as the next gal and I love me some rockin' bodies Olympics, especially the summer ones.

{Maybe it has something to do with being from the South where sand and swimming are a given - but there is something about the summer Olympics that suck me in EVERY.TIME.}

I am, however, very greatful for the fact that they only come around every 4 years - seriously I couldn't handle Olypmics year around. {Neither could my body}

{1.} As I sit and watch the buns of steel, the rock hard abs, the thunder thighs {not the kind like I have either} and the protruding muscles I didn't even know exsisted - I tend to snack and snack and snack because let's face it, looking at the most athletic, perfect version of the human species is a tad depressing lol
{there is only men in this collage? hmm...wierd}
{Phelps' face is blocked out because we can agree that it's his least attractive quality - oops}

{2.} My schedule has been at a stand still, because I cannot do ANYTHING but watch the Olympics because it's on everywhere I go and if I don't stay caught up then I get behind! {My poor house is so dirty and my poor husband is so hungry}

{seriously folks - who has time for life with a schedule like this?!}

{3.} I don't think my emotions could handle Olympics year round. Between Missy Franklin's tearful gold medal win - the heartbreaking results of the woman's gymnastics all around trails - the amazing gold medal win of the women's gymnastics team finals - the crushing men's gymnastics team finals - should I keep going? {I haven't even mentioned the recently crowned Olympic god - Mr. Phelps}

{Seriously - this called for the ugly cry - I felt so bad for her and then they showed her mom and I lost it}

{4.} I would hate NBC the Olympics were year round because they air them while I am working and certain folks cannot contain their excitement and blab the results in the middle of the damn day! Seriously NBC - Can I get a tab or something specifically for the Olympics news, so I don't get blasted with the results everytime I go to your main page?

{5.} Continuing on about the idiots who ruin my life by blabbing - I cannot get on Facebook. ever. because some yahoo is professing their undying love for one athlete or another and their most recent accomplishment.

{6.} I don't know if you know this - but NBC is home to the best daytime television ever - Days of Our Lives and if the Olympics were year round - guess who would no longer have a reason to live beacuse her soaps would be canceled? - this girl.

{7.} Lastly, I might be tempted to get a sweet Olypmics tattoo somewhere on my body so I could feel, if only for a second, as cool and accomplished as those lovelies. {And then everyone would be embarrassed to be around me}

If those aren't wonderful reasons to only keep this obsessive, life consuming program to a minimum of every 4 years, then I don't what are.

P.S. - does this medal count for anything? {I may or may not be wearing it around the office}

What are your favorite and least favorite parts of the Olympics!?

Hahaha this is all SO true. I have boycotted the news in fear of seeing any result, yet I still somehow get blasted in the face with it. So annoying, I get livid.
