Just had to post... *bounces*

My daughter got a bronze medal today in Javelin. \o/ Remarkably (and honestly I have no idea where this came from..) she threw 3 metres past her best to snag 3rd place (she threw 29m). She also came 6th in triple jump, which is kinda great also because triple isn't really her event. So a good start to the meet. Shot and 100m tomorrow. The pressure is off now because she's made the State International Team by winning a medal today so she'll be going to KL in July. *phew* Still, I know she'll want to do well in those 2 events tomorrow.

And while I'm in a celebratory mood:

Driver Picks the Music Viewer's Choice Awards

I gotta say, the competition will be tough. There's some amazing vids and vidders over there so I figure I better do some pimping.. *iz shy*

My vids that are in the running:

Best Action: I Go To Work
Best Angst: No Bravery
Best Character: In Te Domine
Most Original: Channel Surfing
Best POV: Behind Blue Eyes
Wild Card: Wrong (thrilled to have snagged a wildcard for that vid *beams*)

But, as I said, there are some awesome vids over there so even if these didn't take your fancy pop over there and vote for the vids that did. There's a heap of other categories also. :D :D

to your daughter. \o/

I ran over for some vid-voting. *^___^*

I especially want to see "In Te Domine" somewhere up there. That is still my very personal favorite. :D

Yay! Love the pic. :D Thank you!

I'm really chuffed you like that vid so much. Makes me *beam*

Thanks babe.

Congrats to your daughter and to you - a family of champions obviosuly!

Do you get to go with her to KL?
19th-Mar-2011 12:10 pm (UTC)
Hee... thanks honey. <3

And we don't have to go with her as she'll go with the squad and they stay together the whole time, but we are thinking about going over for a holiday anyway (if we can afford it). She goes for a week and we're thinking a weeks holiday in KL would be very nice indeed. We haven't had a decent holiday in years and years.

Congrats to your daughter! :D

And I sure as heck will be wandering over there to vote, especially "I Go To Work". XD

Thanks hun.

Luckily she did medal yesterday because today she blew out completely in the shot put.

Upsetting, but the medal yesterday sure helped.

Thanks. :)

Congrats to your daughter :) What an exciting thing to look forward to.
20th-Mar-2011 04:48 am (UTC)
Hey you! New name you! :D

Thanks sweetie. It will be an exciting thing to look forward to. I think we might be going also. :)

Such wonderful news! And a personal best - wow, congrats to her for that alone, never mind the medal and a place on the team - you and hubs must be positively thrilled for her.

YAY for all the vids hon, best of luck, I'm sure they'll do well.
20th-Mar-2011 04:49 am (UTC)
Yeah - PB's are the best you can ask for really. And even though she didn't medal in the triple the PB was awesome.

She blew out today on the shot put though. Luckily she has yesterdays medal.

*ouch* - hope she's ok, I know, I know it's all part of learning, and competition is as much about accepting days when you can't get everything together as much as it is about coming out on top, but it's still a shame things didn't pan out this time - let her know we're all cheering for her no matter how she does ok?

**hugs for you all**

Congratulations on all accounts! It's always bewildering and thrilling when kids have these kinds of successes. I'd wondered if she was still competing.

And congrats and good thoughts to you as well! If I can figure out how, will certainly vote for you. I adore all your vids, but Channel Surfing is such a favorite. &hearts

Having my kid compete like this does nothing for my nerves I have to tell you! I am a dreadful spectator... so nail bitey. Thank god my husband is the calm one.

And yeah - she has been competing all year. It all comes together this weekend when she competes against all the other athletes her age from around the state. :)

To vote - there's a panel to the right of that link above where you can select the vids you want.

Thanks hun <3

Congrats! Sounds like your daughter is a very active kid, though looking at the list of vids you have nominated she's apparently a chip off the old block!

20th-Mar-2011 04:53 am (UTC)
Yes! She is rather active. Except when she not. Like in between all of this she spends far too much time on FB. But at least she is doing this stuff which keeps her fit and active.

19th-Mar-2011 09:29 pm (UTC)
\o/ I'm so happy for your daughter (and for her proud mom, of course)!
20th-Mar-2011 04:54 am (UTC)
*smish* thanks hun.

(and an extra special *smish* for the news you posted recently).
20th-Mar-2011 04:25 am (UTC)
*nodding* Oh yes, I will vote for "In Te Domine." That vid sits right on my desktop and I watch it every now and then because there's just something about it that touches me, with the timing of the music and Castiel's journey and the awesome editing, and *blush* I totally cried at the end! Music always gets me, and that final scene where Dean is looking up at him kills me every time.

I think I'll go watch it right now!
20th-Mar-2011 04:55 am (UTC)
Wow - that's so great to know. Thank you sweetie. I would never had made such a vid without it being requested by my auction winner yourlibrarian

21st-Mar-2011 12:46 pm (UTC)
\o/ You go girl, you and your awesome self. Um, I voted!! Also, I found another one of my friends on there in the wild card category so that was cool too. ♥
21st-Mar-2011 01:46 pm (UTC)
Oh yay! Thanks! And I'm so glad you found one of your friends in the wild card category too. So many awesome vids and vidders. :D
