An Olympic Weekend

Originally published at Big Ugly Man Doll. You can comment here or there.

It’s been a fantastic weekend here at the BUMD house with the Olympics on.   In honor of watching the Opening Ceremonies in London on Friday, we ate British things, except for the French cheese and the Spanish wine and the Italian charcuterie and the Swiss crackers and the bread, which was local.  I think the Scotch was the closest we got.  But other than that, it was all very British; the house had a distinct East London feel to it.  Watching the Queen of England jump out of a helicopter as the latest Bond girl was awe-inspiring, quite. 

Since then, we’ve medaled in several areas!  So far, we’ve taken Gold in ”How The Hell Is THAT An Olympic Sport?” and “Sitting On Our Butts Channel-Surfing The Games.”  We only got Silver in “No Way, That Was Totally Out,” and came away with Bronze in “He Can’t Lose, He’s Too Cute.”  

On the other hand, we completely failed to reach the podium in “Oh God, Do They Really Need To Dust Off Bob Costas Every Time?”

Best of luck in all of your Olympic goals, and for those of you scoring at home, as always, please use protection.

Yep, looks like another post from the Big, Ugly Man Doll!
