I know China shouldn't have had them, and that most of the atheletes are on drugs, but I'm actually quite looking forward to it starting. Am I alone?

Mmm. My dad will be glued to the TV for... how long do they last?

I dunno. Some of the sports are more watchable than others I suppose.

Yes. Although I'm not sure what the beaches are like in China.

I want to see that 13 year old boy diving!
That's pretty impressive.

He actually annoys me. I hope he gets an unwanted erection before his dive.

Haha!!

Well he will have just been in the changing rooms with a lot of very fit men. So who could blame him.

Divers really are bloody fit, y'know...
*daydreams*
*but not about the 13 yr old*
*just to make that clear*

At that age almost inevitable, I should think. Hang on, that's not why zooo

The Olympics are strangely addictive. Even stuff I know is boring like the rowing draws me in if Britain are doing well. So I'll be working from home for the next few weeks :)

I love all the sports you only ever see at the olympics, like shooting or kayaking. And I love that the people doing these events aren't professional athletes, but rather doctors and accountants and ordinary joes.

We coulda been contenders. :(
If only we'd picked a really random, obscure sport.

I could watch the Olympics for seconds. No, that's a lie, I couldn't, I hate it.

Good luck for the next four weeks then.
