Some sent me this Return of the Sith link. I have no use for it, you guys may find it amusing.
So, despite having fucked up royally before, the British governemnt get their chance to spend a big chunk of our tax money on some sporting event or other. Even though Britain does not take part in some of the competitions because a couple of its provinces like to think themselves as nations.
I am sure the 2012 Olympics will be as good as any other Oluympics - that is, 'good' if you like watching doped up zombies run around a field in order to earn the right to run around it again in slow mation, wrapped in their flag, so that newspapers back in their homecountry can print theri pictures on the front page. Now I expect 7 years of the British banging on and on and on about hosting them, and the Dayly-and-Evening-Too Mail crying "Shambles!" every other week. I just hope I will have moved to another country by then.
ANOTHER WWII celebration?
Talking of banging on, there was some WWII remembrance thing on the BBC last night. I may be wrong, but isn't it already the third time this year that there is some celebration or other about the end of WWII? Now don't take me wrong, I am happy the Bad Guys got their arse kicked by the AmeRuskis, and the Brits played their part too. But isn't a yearly celebration enough? With that, Trafalgar and now the Borimpics it's been non-stop jingoism for last couple months. At least this comes with a game.
Thank god they didn't win the Eurovision Song Contest too, that would have been the straw the broke the camel's back.
Beach week end
Off to Italy for a few days tomorrow. Wedding and beach.
May help with the grumpiness.
