I feel like this baboon, since I’ve been glued to the TV watching the Olympics. I hope all of you are enjoying the games.

    I’m having great fun watching them, with the exception that it is severely messing up my sleep schedule! 🙂

    Very relaxing I must say! Not the games but the way he is sitting

  3. pattisj says:

    I haven’t watched much of it. Feeling like this photo is certainly a deterrent! 🙂

  4. Jo Bryant says:

    Considering NZ is doing so well I should be ashamed but I haven’t watched one thing

  5. The Guat says:

    Yup … watching Phelps make history 🙂

    I am loving it. Did you see the rowing yesterday? I was jumping up and down in front of the tv. Well down KG and AW. And Becky Adlington is such a great sportsperson. I love her attitude. She embodies the taking part ethos and doing your best. A great reminder that gold medals aren’t everything. That said, I shall keep my fingers crossed for Jessica Ennis today. 🙂

      I’ve seen some of the rowing. On Friday I was watching a lot of the tennis. I’m excited for the men’s final today! Will you be watching Murray?

  7. I thought for a second that he had a cigarette in his hand!!

    My husband and my daughter have been watching quite regularly – I get to see a few every now and again. One of my good friends (who’s finishing his PhD in Cardiff) is a volunteer for the Olympics and I get to see a few of his fabulous photographs within the area as well as the live entertainment within that aren’t shown on TV. Pretty great shots as well.

    I’m loving the bits that I’ve been able to see – not nearly enough though…

    Great shot!

  11. Fergiemoto says:

    Ha, ha – good one! Feeling like you need a break but just can’t peel yourself away from the TV?

  12. Madhu says:

    Not much considering how abysmally our athletes are faring 🙂

    • TBM says:

      That’s too bad. I’m finding myself cheering on all of the nations I get confused when I start shouting all of their names. It would be wonderful if every nation could win a medal. Here’s to the next Olympics 🙂

Thanks for commenting, I would love to hear from you.
