Time Event
7:35a
Olympics
In general, I'm an Olympics fan, and I enjoy many of the winter game sports. Indeed, I have a strange fascination with curling, and I hope that I'll be able to watch some of the matches in this year's Olympic tournament. However, I'm working such long hours that I barely have time to sleep, let alone watch television. Anytime I stop long enough to turn on the TV, I generally fall over and go to sleep. And there is the matter of the horrendous actions of Russia regarding GLBT folks to think about when it comes to supporting these games at all.

I'm certainly glad that I'm not there, however, in light of all of the stories (most notably "dangerous face water") about how awful the accommodations are. I reckon the London games organizers are smugly smiling at how relatively easily their games game off compared to the potential train-wreck of organizational disasters going on in Sochi right now.

Current Mood: exhausted
