    Eh, I really liked the whole Industrial Rev bit, and the Queen and Bond...but yeah. Rowan was COMPLETELY unexpected! I absolutely roared when the light came up on him at the keyboard, and spent the next few mins gasping for air. The man's a comic genius.

    China and the US have almost the same number of medals! Wonder who will have the most at the end…

    I still love Michael Phelps; in fact, I love him more now. That is all.

    I wonder why people dislike the Industrial Revolution part. I mean, it's very cultural:attitude:!

    I personally found that part of the ceremony boring... it didn't hold my attention, personally, but for others it probably was fascinating. IDK.

    Is anyone else amazed that we filled up so many pages worth of excitement for the Olympics, yet now that the Olympics are on, very few people are even posting anything?

    And did anyone else notice that bandit apparently took a MC hiatus to watch the Olympics nonstop?

    I am only excited for the opening/closing ceremonies, the other sports I can't watch due to time zone problems.
    And if I remember correctly, Elmo is supposed to appear sometime. I'm waiting...

    Well, countdown: 5 days to the closing ceremonies! Yaaaaay!

    I've managed to catch some of the gymnastics and diving, which are really the only events that hold my attention...just 'cos the sheer grace of those disciplines amazes me.

    If anyone else caught Djokovic carrying the standard for his nation during the opening...did you think the same thing I did? "Viktor Krum!"

    Kenyan Maasai runner David Rudisha was quite amazing in breaking the 800m world record time! :)

    I am sorry, I haven't been online on here, I have been watching it all the time from the start.

    Saw some of the rhythmic gymnastics qualifying rounds today. Yeah, I know people make fun of Dances With Ribbons, but I really like watching it. As someone with ZERO personal grace or coordination, I am always deeply impressed by dancers, acrobats, and these young ladies. Neat. :)

    Rhythmic gymnastics is cool to watch and I totally think it's underrated as a whole, but I get frustrated watching competitions because the scoring is so political.

    Yeah, it does seem very subjective. One routine which impressed me wasn't scored as high as one that seemed too repetitive...go figure. But still fun just to watch.

    The closing ceremony is tomorrow, 4 am local time. Which is the same day as I have to go to school. I have to leave at 6:30, so I'll miss about 15 minutes of action.

    I have school tomorrow, but nothing is stopping me from watching the closing ceremonies. Once again, "Yaaaaay!"

    I think she's off on an Olympics retreat...she seems to have vanished...

    She's off to secretly photograph Michael Phelps...
