I had grand plans of live-blogging my thoughts on the Olympic Opening Ceremonies for you, but then I got to the end of the Ceremonies and realized that my notes pretty much consisted of: “What the fuck is going on?!” and “Oh my god! OH MY GOD! J.K. Rowling!” and also “Thank God for Meredith Viera and Matt Lauer’s explanations” and “Can we just go back to the Industrial revolution?” and a lot of “Where’s One Direction?” but mostly “WHAT THE FUCK IS GOING ON?!”
Then my friend’s mom sent this text: “I thought I understood the Brits. They’re my kinsmen. But it turns out I understand the Chinese more.”
And I think that’s all there is to say about that.
