Let the Games Begin!
Four years ago, I had to write a post apologizing for my unavoidable absence from the world of books and I must joyfully do the same again today. Instead of reading books and writing blog posts, I will be parked in front of my television until August 12, watching basketball and swimming, gymnastics and tennis, volleyball and diving, mountain biking and rowing. In fact, there will be very few sports I don't end up watching (boxing, wrestling and martial arts mostly). I will be waiting to see if there are actually live cows during the opening ceremonies. I will be immersed in nostalgic bliss while New Order and Blur play during the closing ceremonies. And I will be unable to keep from tearing up when I see so many amazing men and women on the podiums after their inspiring performances.
I will also be celebrating tonight with an Opening Ceremonies Tea -- filling my tummy with these digestives, tea cakes, biscuits and Jammie Dodgers. Cheers!
Off to London,
