Parlez-Vous Olympics?!

I never thought I'd say this, but ... I'M GOING TO THE OLYMPICS.

Before you get too excited, let me add the caveat that I'm going as a volunteer, not an athlete. In this, I shall endeavour to represent my country proudly, speak french, and make sure that you — dear spectator — get to your seat comfortably and on time.

This is my pledge.

I have been appointed "Team Leader" at the Whistler Sliding Centre and while I'm not sure exactly what that means, I know I'll have 8-10 other volunteers to lead into service-with-a-smile glory; I know I'll be on Blackcomb Mountain; I know I'll be standing outside 8-10 hours a day; and I know I'll be wearing my crazy party pants that, yes, GLOW IN THE DARK.

Hopefully, I'll get a walkie-talkie too because that would seriously make my day. Over.

I'm so excited I could puke. Stay tuned for more updates from OLYMPIC BLOG.

I'm the hairy one in the middle, leading TEAM KRIS.
