pen on paper: 'Dear diary'
 
Hello, human diary. It is I again, Mitt Romney, your better.

I cannot help but feel I am forgetting something. My staff asked me whether or not I had heard news from the Olympics yet, and how the competition went—did I have involvement with some competition? It feels like one of our many sons or pets was competing there. Was it Tagg? It might have been Tagg.

I shall have to ask him how he did. I must confess I have not been following the Olympics very closely this time around. I tried at one point, but the network coverage seemed to have completely ignored the ski jumping and slalom events, which were the ones I was most interested in. The ski jumping competition was quite enjoyable during my own Olympics in Utah. They are very precise in their measurements of the height of the hill, and I am fond of any event that involves such accurate quantification of things. Ski jumping sounds like something Tagg would be competing in, but I cannot even find newspaper mentions of it.

P.S. After talking with Ann, it turns out that it was, of course, one of our horses that was in the Olympic Games. I remember that now. It was my idea for that horse to compete. It was also my idea for that horse to win an Olympic medal, however, so it remains to be seen whether they will fully follow through with my advice.

P.P.S. Tagg says he did not compete this year, and that as far as he knows no ski jump competitions will even be held this year. It appears the rumors of London not being prepared for these games was true after all. I will be chastising them at length for this, Mr. Diary.

P.P.P.S. My staff suggests to me that chastising London for this would not be taken well on the campaign trail, and that I should refrain. While they have no doubt that I would be correct in pointing out London's many failures, they have convinced me that not mentioning them would be seen as the more statesmanlike position.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
