It's war

So, the opening of the Beijing Olympics and a land war in Europe... did we give the impression we were bored or something?

Because I would quite like less excitement than that. I wanted one kind of excitement, Olympics excitement. I wanted to look at Beijing's ceremony and enjoy myself by imagining what godawful shite London will serve up in an attempt to be "relevant" and "down with the kids" or similar. Except we will probably have a Tory government by then so we'll have military tattoos and Routemasters instead of dancing hoodies. And also Scotland will probably have seceded by then.

I did not want tanks in South Ossetia and airstrikes. No points to *you*, universe.

Six hours, thirty two minutes until I am on vacation, unless we run late. Which we do *every* *damned* *Friday*. I hadn't realised how much I needed a break until this week.

I have 10 weeks of holiday to use by next Easter. I just mention that in a gloating sort of way...

I've been keeping half an eye on both events via iPlayer. I'd really rather only have the Olympic opening ceremony to watch. I don't much want to see tanks at any time, unless I happen to be visiting the Imperial War Museum or something.

Hope you manage to get away on vacation more or less on time.

I did, thanks. Well, thirty-five minutes late and I spent the afternoon filled with hate, but otherwise all is lovely. How good was the Olympics opening ceremony though?
