Today’s cuppa: Barry’s Irish breakfast tea

Just finished watching the last bit of last night’s opening ceremonies at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing (I faded a bit after 11).

Here are some of the words and phrases that came to mind:

Gorgeous
Stunning
Masterful technology
Artistically impressive
Clockwork precision
Charming
Dang, did you see that?
Touching
Glorious
Sorry, Ralph Lauren, I don’t think those hats will be the new Roots berets. Nice jackets, tho!
Thrilling
Dazzling…

but…

Trying really hard
Don’t ask what’s behind the curtain
Leni Riefenstahl would have been impressed and possibly intimidated

Now I can search the dial for the equestrian events … (while being spoiled every single morning I turn on my computer. Ah, well).
