Last weekend I went to my first Olympia Expo and Mr. Olympia show held in Las Vegas, NV. There was quite an array of people there, people I wouldn't have guessed to be interested and others I wouldn't deign to ever miss a show. I didn't have a chance to take many photos but Ronnie Coleman, Tito Ortiz, and Carmen Elektra!
Phil Heath won! What a fine way to go out for Jay Cutler, to be succeeded by his legacy. The pair are, for lack of a better word, SO CUTE! On stage, they were constantly posing next to each other, hugs left and right and words of encouragement. It is a little sad that Jay is done but this gives others like Phil Heath and Kai Greene their chance at victory. Obviously, I know little to nothing about bodybuilding but The Predator sure looked great. His routine was awesome and I thought his physique looked amazing. We think he'll have lots to show for in the future shows to come.
(Darn, I want to post a video about the Olympia competition but YouTube has taken them all down - they're being so strict on Copyright stuff. /sigh)

I am thinking of studying how to put on hair extensions with the bonded weave technique. This past July I had that technique used on me, but it was done in Vietnam so I'm not sure the states will apply that same methodology. I actually prefer the bonded weave technique to the braided or clip-on method. There is nothing like the fear of seeing your hair fall out in wefts, still debating whether I ought to add more glue or just remove it all and start fresh... or just go short.
