(Warning: this post is shallow and gratuitous. Don't think less of me and don't say I didn't warn you.)
I spent a lot of time a few weeks back, watching the Winter Olympics. That isn't shameful in and of itself, but I found myself crushing on a certain Norwegian Alpine skier.
Aksel Lund Svindal
Even his name is sexy.
Aksel. I like it!
I think part of it was that the media covered his story: after having a horrible skiing accident a little over a year ago he recovered making an incredible comeback and winning several medals.
There is something so sexy about overcoming adversity, is there not?
Well, that and then there is this:
Of course, then they said he was 27... KERPLOP!!!
Since when did 27 sound so young?
I remembered how long ago 27 was. Then I was depressed.
This next picture only partially brought me out of my age-induced depression.
