8/8/8



Violet is 5 months old today! We don't have anything special planned for the occasion. We'll just be home watching the Olympic opening ceremony with friends. I imagine that being on the Olympic Opening Ceremony Planning Committee has to be great fun; judging from previous opening (and closing) ceremonies, I'm thinking that they drink good liquor until they're nice and tipsy, take suggestions for a few hours, and then use *every single drunken idea* that was suggested. A million balloons? Of course. Giant puppets representing Olympic values? You betcha. How about Ferraris doing donuts on a sheet of ice while lasers and fireworks blaze? Why the heck not? (Yep, that Ferrari thing happened. Torino Winter Olympics. Let's see the Chinese top that!)

(Okay, I'm pretty darn sure that the Chinese can top that.)
