I’m sitting at home, watching the Opening Ceremonies (reprised) on NBC – the CTV one is just re-starting and I don’t need to start at the very beginning and see all the athletes walk in again. (Amusing side note, on NBC, they show where each country is in relation to the USA… for the geographobes down there?)
Despite all of my reluctance to support the Olympics, I can’t help but feel that there is a party going on in Vancouver that I am missing – not that I (antisocial me) has ever had qualms about missing a party before. I’ve always liked to think that I take great opportunities when they present themselves. Will I regret not going to see some of the events if I hide on the Island for the next few weeks? Of course the opposite side of that is whether or not I will be so incredibly frustrated with the crowds that I don’t enjoy any time there. I don’t know. I guess I have a couple weeks to decide.
