4009 Feb 2002
I woke up this morning and feel pretty good. I haven't turned into a troll or an ogre, not yet. Update Hold on, I have turned into an ogre after all. Well, if I'm an ogre, that makes Christopher a donkey!
We watched the replay of the Olympic Opening Ceremony at 9am this morning. The German white stocking caps with the long earlappers looked silly, I thought. The Olympics are crassly commercial and nationalistic, of course, but there are far worse ways to vent off such things. Like Hal, I enjoyed the oversized animal puppets. Seeing the US hockey team light the flame reminded me of February 1980, when they won the gold medal, and I had just started seeing a German exchange student in the next town.
