    Given how miserable the day is, and the fact that I loath the cigrette smoke outside - I will be waiting inside the cinemas. I'll probably leave my place around 4.30ish, depending on how many trains are headed into town - and how easy it is to jump to a line that goes to South Bank, I should be there before 5.30ish.

    I didn't get to see Batman with you fine folk this week, so will probably be venturing to Chermside tonight for food and a viewing at some point this evening.

    Anyone who didn't get to go, or would like to have a second viewing, sms me or some such.

    Was going to come, but I feel absolutely wretched. Anethestic just wore off from getting fillings done and my tooth feels horrid - after making it clear what would be done and what wouldn't be touched I get the vague feeling the dentist didn't listen.

    A few people have suggested getting together to watch the Opening Ceremony for the Olympics. This will involve me drinking and hurling abuse at the Chinese Government whilst bitching about how this country spends too much on sport and not enough on education, health and basic infrastructure.

    If that sounds like your idea of fun, you're welcome to join me Friday night :p

    Be seeing you,

    I actually love the Olympics, sport in general and all the Olympics are supposed to stand for. For someone who came from the lower ranks of the society and surrounded by a family heavily involved, sport always had a way of giving hope, making things bearable and gave a level playing field, so to speak, to dream from. Need sport, need art, need education, need roads. It's all part of the one thing.

    Sure it's China, and we've all got lots to hate China for, and the US, and multiple other nations, and the sheer money spent on an Olympic event could so be spent in other ways. But it's not. It's something that we traditionally do. Every 4 years we attempt to do something that unites this planet in a way that not much else does. It's superficial, and cliched and full of flaws, but I feel like it's always been a beacon to many, and something we can point to and say, "we belong to one species and we like to run". Not me personally, but many like to run. :)

    So, no, opting out of any evening of bagging sport and the Olympics specifically. I'm gonna try to watch as much as I can in the next couple of weeks, and try to believe in the dream a while.

    In other events planning :)..

    Clone Wars comes out shortly and Goobs and I are still going to head to the yatala drive-in some evening to watch Star Wars and Dark Knight from the comfort of a vehicle..or a deck chair in front of said vehicle.

    And Clone Wars..of course..we should really see that together if possible.... shouldn't we???

    That would kinda make sense, seeing as we all hang out on a Star Wars forum and all... [face_thinking]

    My apologies Kahlan, I didn't mean to offend. I was just being my usual facetious self. I watch the Opening Ceremony every time with my mum, no matter what time it's on. However she's out of town this weekend, so others will be joining me. Yeah, I could have mentioned that, but always go for the joke.

    I've got my issues with China for hosting the Olympics, being religious, political, and justice related. I've also got my issues with the previous Australian Government increasing funding to the AIS whilst letting other systems rot in an effort to maintain the "bread and circuses" doctrine. It's a good sign that we're actually fielding a smaller team than the previous Olympics as spending must be down. I understand that sport is a great universal equaliser; it knows no international borders or barriers. But I also know that it's an effective political tool; there was a reason the Australian Cricket Team used to boycott South Africa during Aparteid. However I also realise that it'd be unfair for an oversight body to declare a boycott without the consent of the athletes intending to compete; they've all worked hard to be the best they can be at their chosen field. Which is what the Olympics is all about; to find those who can achieve what no other human can, like Jesse Owens or Carl Lewis. It angers me whenever discussion begins suggesting that we allow drugs to be used legally in the sport; it's not about leveling the playing field, it's about finding the best.

    Incidentally, the head of the IOC Drug Research and Testing facility is a certified mad scientist; he has to come up with ways to test for drugs that haven't technically been invented yet. Crazy, but a damned genius.

    The Olympics for me is about people like Derek Redmond, who tore his hamstring in 1992 and had his father help him to the finish line, or Kerri Strug, who won the Gold in 1996 by achieving the winning gymnastics dismount on an injured leg - she had to be carried out by her coach to receive her medal. Or Lawrence Lemieux, a Canadian sailor who in 1988 gave up a certain Silver medal to rescue two Singapore sailors who were in danger of drowning in a boat race. Or Gabriela Andersen-Schiess, who despite massive heat exhaustion, managed to finish the Women's Marathon in 1980, the first time the event was held. However inspiring moments like this are few and far between now; events like those concerning Sally Robbins overshadow the competition, and make hardend cynics harder still.

    I want to believe in the Olympic dream. I hope these Olympics give me something to believe in. And I've waffled for too long, so that's all I'll say on the matter.

    So, Clone Wars? When shall we do that? :p

    Be seeing you,

    Magnus Darcrider
