Want to go to the 2032 Olympics? Not so fast....

I’m sure you all know one….someone who actually goes and looks it up when a question is presented that they don’t know. It doesn’t have to be important or school related. It can be something like what side of the street do you walk on- facing traffic or the same direction as traffic to can a President who’s served 2 terms become president again if they were elected vice president and the current President was removed from office. This person doesn’t just casually look it up-often they will get up, mid conversation to go google it. Or a pending question that was posed when a computer was unavailable will bother them until they finally look it up.

Well, I’m one of those people. Mr. Lush loves it sometimes and hates it other times. Hates it when I prove him wrong and loves it when he wants to know something or when he feels like messing with me and will just pose a question to see if I will go dash and look it up.

My most recent pending question was “How far out are the Olympics planned?” While in Kansas City this weekend, Mr. Lush and I were watching the Olympics at a bar (read=no computer available) and that question came up. Mr. Lush thinks its “oh, just one out or so”. No, it has to be like 3 or 4 at least, don’t you think? With no answer and no way to look it up, it was dropped. Until I looked it up today.

Now, we know if Lucy was on the Olympic committee it would be planned until at least 2042, with backups for potential natural disasters or major wars of destruction. However, Lucy is not on the committee, so currently the Olympic locations are only planned out through 2014. (Vancouver 2010, London 2012, and Sochi (in Russia-I didn’t know either) 2014. Currently, Chicago is on the bid for the 2016 games- feel free to “add your voice” if you’d like .

Thought you might like to know.

Only through 2014. How do they sleep at night?

I can't even imagine the horror of not planning out farther than 4 Olympics. You should really look into job opps like that....there has to be a more lucrative opportunity for a SuperPlanning Queen like you.
