The games ...

So, the opening ceremony for the Olympics has just finished.
This takes me back four years, to the Sydney Olympics. At this stage in 2000, rwrylsin and I were making our way through Tullamarine airport in Melbourne, on our way up to Sydney. We saw bits of the opening ceremony, but to this day, haven't seen it all the way through.
(We were there for the fencing, of course, which started on the first day of the Games).
Meanwhile, I wonder if there'll be anything on UK TV anything like Roy and H.G.'s "The Dream", an irreverent and rather Australian look at the events of that day.

Finally, something completely different, and mostly amusing to fan-fiction types.
