We occasionally chat
on the phone. Sometimes, if I can get to the IBC early enough in the day,
I'll run out to the middle of OAKA to the news studio compound and say
hello. His show runs from 2 to 5 in the afternoon - so when he's finished,
he sometimes walks through the IBC on his way back to his office compound
(which is across the street) and says hello to me through a giant, orange,
metal gate that separates NBC from the rest of the world. There is simply
not enough time for him to walk around and go through security, so this
is the best we've got right now. A quick hello.
It's a good thing we met in Sydney,
because it means that from the start, we knew what working at the Olympic
Games was all about. This is our third Games together (he wasn't in Atlanta)
- in Sydney, we met; in Salt Lake, we were almost engaged (whatever that
means), and here we are married. Since the Opening Ceremony, we have seen
each other only a handful of times. This past weekend, he had a day off,
so I woke up early and met him for breakfast, and then we went pin trading
(he's more obsessed that I am) and shopped a bit in the Plaka. It was a nice
two hours, and then I went to work.
And that's it. I'll see him next
week in New York.
The Today Show set in the NBC area where Evan works.
