With mostly naked super-fit athletes instead of hobbits.

I've watched quite a lot of Olympic coverage since the opening ceremonies on Friday, and am not even close to sick of it. This is so much better than obsessing over the November elections (which I cannot stand to think about already)! Tonight we're on women's gymnastics, which is its usual parade of tiny but insanely talented teenagers occasionally getting emotional. Heh.

We started it all at ashfault76's house to watch the opening ceremonies over Thai food and whiskey on Friday night. The whole thing was distinctly British and I think it was nice they didn't take themselves too seriously. As long and distinguished as his career has been, though, Paul McCartney's closing number went on a bit long. Oh, and I am the only one that likes the torch, apparently.

I have several other entries in mind I should get typed up and posted here, and I will surely do that in the next couple of weeks. For now, I am in a dumpling coma and watching swimming.

I actually like the torch, too. It won't be mistaken for anything else. I know a few people who are disappointed that it's not visible from outside, but other than that it's cool.

I think there should be a drinking game when you watch water polo, swimming or diving based on drinking when a guy adjusts his package... though you might end up too drunk to go to work the next day...

Glad to hear someone else likes the torch concept!

And there is no way I'd survive that game.
