Girl Talk Thursday

What would you win the Olympics of?

So I'm guessing my regular readers will know by now that I'm not really the athletic type (apart from the odd Marathon and planning on climbing Mountains!!!!) so what would I win the Olympics of? Well the only two things that I could come up with are:

Silver Medal: Crying at stupid things on the T.V! I like to think that I'm not really a crying kind of person in real life situations. However, put a film on or the T.V. and as soon as anyone is showing any kind of emotion my eyes overflow. On X Factor, when they tell the Families that they are through to the next round and everyone starts will find me in the corner crying like a girl!!! Last Friday night I watched 'My Sisters Keeper' and it was so emotionally harrowing I had to take a break halfway through so that I could stop crying for 5 minutes!!!!!

Gold Medal: Speed Reading. I absolutely love reading and have mentioned in a previous post that JoJo and I managed to read most of the library in the small Village we lived in as kids. I've always been quite a quick reader but now that I have Chick, speed reading (and bribery) is essential.

When the last Harry Potter book came out my Brother and I had a competition to see who could read the book the quickest and guess who won? Yep, that's right, it was me! Even with a full time job and a 7 year old I managed to read it quicker than him....yee haa!!!! I also managed to read 'Breaking Dawn' in 6 hours.

Reckon you could beat me??? Bring it on!!! So what would you win the Olympics at?

p.s. Actually my gold medal would be avoiding housework but when I write about that it just makes me sound like the slob I am!!!!!


  1. oooh....such good ones!

    I think I'd win a bronze no matter what, because I'm the kind of person who would let someone else win on purpose. I don't like other people's feelings to get hurt.

    I'm a tv cry-er too!

  2. I might put up a good show in Crying at Commercials. It's embarrassing. And not just the first time I see it, either! Super sigh.

  3. I think I could take bronze or better in Walking Into Corners. It amazes me how I do this regularly but have such good space coordination on the soccer field.

  4. I cry at lots of stuff on TV too, even if I've seen it a million times! LOL
