Nothing like being topical. Actually, being late does put you at an advantage when some interesting news comes out.
While R napped during Poirot, I did my napping during the Olympic Games opening ceremony. I managed to nap until the end of it at around 2am, and then went to bed. From the transistor wireless, I have learnt that this was the practice of many Melburnians of my age and even younger.
I did tune into quite of bit of the opening ceremony though. I thought it was a most wonderful computer generated show with the occasional real person superimposed. Yep, a very slick computer production.
We may see a show like this again, perhaps when an Olympic Games is held in a country where people can be hired for ten cents a day, but I doubt it. The Olympic Games opening has reached its zenith and London cannot possibly compete.......unless they work out a different and more human angle that does not cost so much.
Of course there is little else to watch on tv at the moment, no City Homicide, no All Saints, and news and current affairs full of Olympic news. Ditto radio. I have caught up on quite a few things.
