    They start in 8 days!!!

    Where's all the hype and build up that we normally get? It's all been very low key. Or I've slept for the past 3 months.

    Is anyone excited, or apathetic?

    I completely love the olympics. In many ways it restores my faith in humanity to get along for a while - the Sydney olympics were epic - will always remember being up with Thomas just after he was born letting lisa get soe sleep watching Steve Redgrave win his last gold.

    :D

    very excited about 2012

    You guys should be here - it's wall to wall already. :mad:

    We even had endless hours today about one romantic couple who are both on the swim team who broke off their romance today. "will it affect their chances for gold" and endless footage of them snuggling up.

    But then Aussies do take their sport waaay too seriously. :rolleyes008:
    Next trip - Bali! (March 2015)

    I always find myself getting totally engrossed in some obscure sport that has never interested me before. And I will of course stay awake for the entire duration of the games looking out for the 30 seconds of fencing that the BBC will show.

    there is something you must always remember.
    You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
    But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.

    A friend is a hand that is always holding yours,
    no matter how close or far apart you may be.
    A friend is someone who is always there and will always, always care.
    A friend is a feeling of forever in the heart.
