Horses and Bolton

I am obsessed with the Olympics. When I get home I want to watch any event I can find.

Last night we were watching Table Tennis which is insane! I thought I was good at ping pong. Yeah right! These guys are incredible. Then we watched wrestling which was way too confusing for me. Plus, it looks painful and that is nothing I enjoy watching.

We came across the Dressage competition (Equestrian) and my son immediately shouts, “What IS this?!?!”

I told him about how I saw the Dressage competition when the Olympics were here in Los Angeles and how bored I was. I am not a “horse” person at all in fact they scare me. Horses and clowns. And birds. And Michael Bolton. All scary.

Anyhow, my son said, “Until the horses are Moonwalking, this will not be one of my favorites.” Moonwalking horses would be cool but still scary.

What this all comes down to is that I once again stayed up too late and had a very stressful morning. Stress screws me up big time! Check out my post on Stress at blogabetes.

Are your BG’s affected terribly by stress?

G-Ninja -
Stress, in all forms including, but not limited to: clowns, Micheal Bolton, Hannah Montana, anyone whose views are extreme in either direction,and stress associated with work/life all cause my blood sugar to rise.
You sir, are not alone.

I just don't know, George, but the planets must be aligned in a weird way.
I was scanning the blogger headlines and saw the word "horse" and immediately heard playing in my head the Rolling Stones song "Wild Horses" - now what in the heck is that all about?
I moved over to my ipod library but it wwasn't there. Then I looked in my CD files and it wasn't there. Then I had to go to my storage in the basement and finally found the CD - I was supposed to devote an hour this evening to fall cleaning and now that's out the door because I'll have to listen to the entire disc at least twice.
So I look like a flake and have rambled on here about nothing related to your post, db, or life in general...........duh....

Michael Bolton looks like he has a mouth full of water when he sings and he's trying not to let any spill out.

I loved horses until I saw America's Funniest Home Videos when they showed a woman getting bit in the back as she walked by a horse in it's stable. I don't know what was so funny about it. It made afraid of them! I never knew horses bit. I thought they were nice, like cows.

Oh, I LOVE horses....but I also have a healthy respect for them. :) But I understand your fear of horses. Lots of people are afraid of them.
p.s. I LOVE the olympics too!

Imagine Michael Bolton dressed like a clown and riding a horse. Now that's scary stuff!
