Opening ceremony was interesting with Puppet Voldemort and a parachuting Queen but quickly got boring, closing ceremony was mainly just music, so I certainly got bored watching that. Nothing exploded which I was rather worried about what with the security firm messing up so badly. So yeah, we did ok. Though to be honest I would have watched just as much of it if it'd been somewhere else, so there wasn't much point it being here from my perspective.
Bought "Mario and Sonic at the London 2012 Lympic Games" to keep the games going in my heart. It's fun, not revolutionary, but I didn't expect it to be when I bought it.
I rather enjoyed the closing and opening ceremonies of the games. The rest of it? Eh... I don't have that high an opinion of the Olympics in general, but that's neither here nor there. My British-Canadian wife was into the Games, and rooted for Canada, of course. I was rooting for them along with her. I figured the US already had enough medals; we could share the love. Alas, Canada netted just one medal according to her. Figure just wait until the winter Olympics; winter's more Canada's season anyway.
Tis vacation time for me! I have a week - the first time I've taken this much in two years. I rather like being off like this...
