During the Olympic Games in China, as a protest, I am declaring my blog an Olympics Free Zone.
I don't have time nor the inclination to watch. Coverage is usually abysmal and the best programmes to watch are usually just highlights (and if the Aussies aren't doing well, I call them lowlights). Good on them for getting there, but I'm really not that keen on the games - I guess I was all Olympicked out in September 2000. A grand birthday present for me!
Bring on the Winter Olympics!
And just while I'm babbling on about the Olympic Games, I'll take this time to catch up on series four of The Shield, which the tv station programming here put on all hours of the night so I missed it, and I will also see if I can find some other things to keep me occupied. Like mowing and spring cleaning and so on. (Yuck.)
Now I've read everything. The opening ceremony has been described as the most spectacular on Olympic history.
So, which opening were they watching?
