    It's 6:30 p.m. where I am and the opening is just starting here for me. We're way the hell behind the rest of the world, I guess.

    I kept hoping he wouldn't trip up!

    This has gone on too long now. Good job by Danny Boyle and all involved though.

    Heck, I wish I could but I suck at those things.

    I think my favorite part of the opening ceremony are the looks of joy on the athletes faces who know darn well going in they don't have a chance in hell of winning a medal, but are so happy just to be there.

    'Bout freaking time for it to start on tv here (opening ceremony). We're going to be on delay on television, but I'm going to watch everything live streaming on the internet (except the opening ceremony, those bastards) so I don't care about spoilers. If it's happened, it's happened.

    Not enjoying the opening ceremony so far, finding it super cheesy.

    I usually can't stand either ceremony - just bring on the damn games.

    I was so spoiled by the Beijing ceremonies. And OMG I loved the Water Cube. So far, the ceremony is very sweet, but cheesy.


    ETA: The Olympics are on. Why am I not drinking?

    So I loved it. Thought the torch lighting was very beautiful. Can't wait for the games to start!

    I'm enjoying it so far. Not as much as A*O, but still enjoying it just the same.

    I wish I were there to see it. I love the Olympics. Since I don't have a tv, I have to see everything online.
