stuff, other stuff, and olympics

I'm going to get this out of the way first: my best time for the expert level on minesweeper is now 114 seconds. I dream of dropping that below 100.

And of course, dreams are a perfect segue into the olympics. I watched the opening ceremony on Friday. I could discuss how annoying the commercialization of the games was, or how inane the commentary of Bob Costas and Katie Couric was, but in the end, I must say that there is some symbology that is just powerful, and the opening ceremony had it.

Now I'm enjoying watching sports I know little about. It's educational. I've become particularly intrigued by weightlifting and badminton.

I took Sergey and Veronica bowling today. Neither of them have ever gone bowling before. Veronica was unable to actually bowl, but gave Sergey lots of encouragement. We bowled five games. I broke 100 twice, with a high score of 102. Sergey showed me up in the last game and scored 119. I think we'll be doing this again.
