Today was fairly quiet and I’d have to say it was not because Catherine has lost her voice! You might naturally attribute this to too much Olympic partying but I can assure you it is cold-related. With one event this evening, we decided to take it easy. Having blogged for several days now, I realized that my camera is just not doing the job. It was the perfect excuse to go out and buy another. Hopefully, the Olympic photos from now on will be a bit better.

We invited some friends to join us for the Women’s Figure Skating Short Program and arranged to meet them at the Vancouver Film Studios where one of our friends is logistics manager for the TV series, “Fringe”. We left our car in the parking stall belonging to Fringe’s Director of Photography and then got a ride to the Pacific Coliseum. They are just wrapping up the final few episodes of Season 2. 

The results for today’s figure skating have Canada in third place with an excellent shot at a medal on Thursday. Joannie Rochette put in a first class performance to place third. This was remarkable given that her mother passed away from a heart attack when arriving in Vancouver a few days ago. You could see the emotion on Joannie’s face at the end of her performance and the crowd gave her a standing ovation.

Tomorrow (Wednesday) will be a busy day with speed skating, Canada-Russia elimination hockey, victory ceremony with INXS and a trip out to the airport to pick up our two little guys who will see the rest of the Games with us. I’m going to need a good night’s sleep to get psyched for the hockey game and Catherine needs to get better. Did I mention that it rained all day today?
