It was horribly dumb! Everything he does is horribly dumb! But like you, it made me smile. and that, unfortunately, was enough to elevate it to one of the best parts of the opening ceremony so far.

I suppose I'll leave it on in the background while I do the dishes and some laundry.
Ok, you made me curious and I googled it, too. I really thought it would be one person, and someone like Roger Bannister.

I'm going to bed, with a good book.

And I love British humor, and I still crack up at Benny Hill. So, it was a very British skit and I did smile.

But the rest is a major yawn. I don't like watching TV on TV, so that whole long music play was terrible. I LOVE the whole history of British music idea, but the implementation was boring, disjointed, and uninventive.

Yawn.

Oh, I don't think that's all that impressive.

When I was 8 months pregnant, I would have shot anybody for any reason at all. I didn't need the stinkin' Olympics as an excuse.

But that's the impressive thing. She's going to have a gun and a bunch of people around, but she's not allowed to shoot any of them.

I never thought I would be nostalgic for China.

I thought they were pretty good. The evolution of music part wasn't as good as the rest though. Watching some beach volleyball now.
