Did anyone else see the Olympics opening ceremonies? I did! I have never really been interested in sports, much less the Olympics, but since it's a big deal that it's in China, I wanted to watch the ceremonies. They were simply amazing. All of it was overwhelming on the telly, so I can't even imagine what it must have been like in person. Watch clips if you can find 'em! However, the marching in of the athletes is really, really, really booooring. As in fell-asleep-for-two-hours-boring.
Saturday morning brought another Olympian activity into the house: the Three-Story-Rusted-Stove-Removal-And-Replacement-Relay. We won the gold, natch.
Saturday night brought a few people into the AA* - Miss Wendy fortunately showed up to save my bacon so I didn't have to endure the Extreme Macho-ism that was present all by myself. Thanks, Wendy- you were gloriously Patsyesque! We also formed yet another club: the Half-Heard, Half-Remembered News Club. This club consists of telling each other, in the vaguest terms possible, newsworthy events we sort of heard about during the week. It's almost as good as the Book Club of Never-Read, Never Discussed Literature By Members of The Book Club.
But I think the best part of the WHOLE evening was skunking Miss Wendy at cribbage. Nyah.
Stay tuned- I should have some more incredibly boring posts soon!
