olympic trauma

Mostly I have rolled my eyes over all the fuss - there are some really serious things happening in the world at the moment and I do not consider the Olympic Games to be one of them. But I thought it was about time I watched at least a little of the Games, being only one day of competition left in which to enjoy the incredible feats one can achieve with a body of flesh and bone.

And there are two Australians in the 10 metre diving finals... show my support and all that.

But I just can't watch it. I am so worried they might clonk their head on the platform as they spin around I have to shut my eyes until I know they are OK and then watch the replay. Pathetic but true.

So what's the point of even pretending to watch? I'm off to bed!

Oh... hang on a minute... here's a bit of ribbon gymnastics. I might stay and watch that or... no, they've switched to the 5000m race... and now the javelin and...

I give up. Bed is so much more inviting than this piece meal broadcast!

I have lost A LOT of sleep due to the Olympics. I don't know what I'm going to do when they're over!

Oh yeah. Sleep. :)

Did you see that AWFUL footage of the guy (I think from the 80's) who clonked his head on the board *shudder* I can't handle it either!
