PostSubject: The Olympics!   Sat Aug 09, 2008 2:53 am

Yay! I'm watching the opening ceremony right now... Today is 8/8/08. 8 is a lucky number in China.Why? Because the Chinese word for "8" sounds like the Chinese word for "money". Hm. Odd... Anyway... Do you watch the olympics? Are you cheering for anyone in particular? What events are you looking forward to? Are you bothered that George Bush kept checking his watch during the ceremony?

I didn't actually get to see the opening ceremony. Or at least, I didn't want to. But I am looking forward to alot of sports like, badminton, tennis, gymnastics, rhythmic gymnastics, volleyball, beach volleyball, track, baseball, soccer, and some more that I can't remember. What's really wierd is that my brother's old high school friend is in the Olympics in track.

Chinese money is called yen, and that doesn't sound like 8, so I don't think thats a reason why its lucky. Anyways, we already won a gold medal in fencing, and the opening ceremony was sooo cool!! I don't wanna spoil it, so watch it yourselves!!

The Chinese word for money sounds like the Chinese word for eight and that's why they like the number 8. At least, that' what my teacher said...
I have a lot of fun watching swimming and diving and gymnastics. But that's just me. Smile

Lol. I am in Beijing NOW. I just go to a school like summer camp here. Anyways, I WATCHED Micheal Phelps break the record! And you know at the opening ceremony, the "fireworks" that you saw are digitally inserted because they had too many helicopters hovering above.
