if i can't be an olympic gymnast... is the next best thing.
that's right...that would be olympic gold medalist, nastia liuken. today, chad called me from gloria dei...where the base camp for C.O.R.E. is. he goes there every morning to meet the volunteers and send out work teams to different houses that, in most cases, need to be gutted. so anyhow, he calls to inform me that nastia liuken randomly showed up to be taken on a tour of the area, meet some families, and work in a house. she was in town for the gymnastics superstar tour (which i went to tonight) and requested to come to the coast. i told her that i was coming to see her perform tonight and then i may or may not have offered to show her my 4th grade beam routine. at that...chad pretended to not know me. :)
