Oh, Crew… I am wiped out by the late night of skating and an early morning meeting. Okay, 8 am is not that early– but I did have to put on pants with waistband which is an effort for me. Finally, back at it here at CCHQ.
On the To Do List for the weekend:
Taxes Ugh. Gotta be done. And gotta be done by me by Monday.
Wrap up my Olympic Coverage and Viewing There is always a bit of let down as the Games end and life goes back to normal Chez Moi. I am looking forward to hockey and praying the Canadians do not include kilt-wearing folk dancers in the Closing Ceremonies. My husband, who has taken his dinner upstairs to watch alternative programming this week, will be grateful for the end of the Olympics, though. Thanks goodness, we have Idol to fill the void.
Investigate the hottest fashion trend of Spring: The Clog
I knew, I knew, if I just kept rockin’ the clog that eventually the fashion pendulum would swing back my way. It’s been 25 years but guess what, Chaos Crew, the Clog is Back! According to the Los Angeles Times, clogs are back with a vengeance, from Chanel to Ugg. Take that, all you Ballet Flat Wearers. Scandinavia rules!

Plus, an assignment for the Chaos Crew. I am putting together a document about readers/listeners of The Chaos Chronicles for a CC-related project. If you have time, send an e-mail or post a comment with a short biographical sketch. two or three lines about your who, what, when, how. Don’t worry– it won’t be sold, auctioned or used in any weird or creepy way! Thanks.
