chair, apartment

this post is about friday, because I was lazy at the time

By mid-afternoon, the office movie club had already set an agenda for the Bourne Supremacy. The unexpected and somewhat mysterious ongoing construction project made our moderately early escape for downtown all the more welcome.

The movie was pretty entertaining, on par with part 1. There was possibly something more in the way of suspense since I wasn't aware that the movies were part of a multi-book cycle. (When I saw the Bourne Identity the sequel had already been released.) The script was a bit clunky, but the movie had the feel of old-fashioned international spy movie fun.

Later, I went to the gym and came home to try to catch the olympic fever.
i am not a stuffed tiger.


If you didn't already have it, I can't think of a less compelling way to catch Olympic fever than watching a tape-delayed parade/geography bee that is the opening ceremony. 1 Biggest surprises: Bob Costas's willingness to be political (esp. w/r/t Saudi Arabia and Sudan) and the existence of a Palestinian delegation.

Some of these countries are made up, aren't they?

(1) ... and it's competing with LIVE 1000m single sculls; so that's saying something.
