Day 15  

I am an Olympic junkie -- my DVR is set for as much TV coverage as I can squeeze into it.

I'm so obnoxious about it I even put a clock up at work - we have five or six clocks up on the wall -- theoretically for fax customers if they are faxing to other time zones. Some years ago the last clock fell off the wall -- I can't even remember what country the clock time was showing -- but last week I decided to put another clock in its place and label it and set it for Beijing time:

Yes I did notice that the minute hands should be pointing to the same number -- guess I'll have to replace batteries in the other radios :)

What next?

    I think it's very cool that you enjoy them so much. We watched part of the opening ceremonies last night in honor of you :)

    Ah, thanks! It was a nice ceremony -- today I'm watching fencing (which is somewhat like watching glue dry), badminton and some women's shooting thing. And of course, listing at the same time!!!!!

    yeah, I need to check the schedule and crank up the dvr...I also LOVE the Olympics. When I'm Rich (ahem), I will take two weeks off every Olympics and just lay on the sofa with junk food, and go into an olympics-tv coma....
