….wild is the wind…creative freedom is the seed….
Oh Well! I was too busy on skype having a conference with Nepal, New York and Africa about a forthcoming United Nations project we may get involved in….so I missed the opening of the Olympics London 2012.
Well I missed China and Sydney Olympics too, so at least I treat London the same way as I treat the other two places I’m from.
But thank goodness for eager little Gen Zzzz who made the Gifs so fast, I barely had time to switch on my TV before they delivered all the highlights in Tic-tac size gifs. You guys are such Eager Beavers! You can always count on them to GIF anything in REAL TIME! lol.
In my networks, the only people really excited about it was one lawyer from India, otherwise everyone just sort of treated it as “Just another Manic Friday or MOnday or whatever!” Wooo..Weekend!
My dance collaborator said she left London town because they closed the area where she works so she has time-off. I wonder how that improves TRADE for the cash-strapped citizens of old London town?
My chinese posies from Angel, that’s the REAL N1, not people who lives in some way out postcodes like Tottenham claiming they live in N1 to try to be a snobby Croissant Commie or Losers who register their postcodes to N1 just to collect DSS! lol….she is taking her Mom to look at the place because her mom came over from Hong kong and her sister had to leave soon to teach at an international school.
Hahaha. My first thought was: “What is she going to do with her flat? She can’t just leave it for a year!” She goes,”No, its fine, she has a good tenant in one of the rooms but no way was she renting it out for the Olympics, god knows who is going trash it!” My reaction was,”Gee, can a happy Skippy Aussie or someone from Utah or Texas or something …be any worse than a local Pomme from the council? At least the Skippy and someone from Utah would wash every day and maybe clean the place once in a while and would definitely have a personality instead of a cardboard one! ”
She laughed and goes,”No, we don’t rent to DSS tenants, there’s council flats for that. “
I said,”Hey, I meant people WORKING for the council ! hahahaha! So there! Deodorant incurs luxury tax &VAT remember ! hahahaha! Let the happy-clappy tourist have a floor space! hahahhahaha! But I would stay away from some of the low-IQ jobs that work for Islington council…cos the 30% funding cuts meant the Average IQ got cut back to 30 in Tony’s old hood! hahahha.“
But she was like,”Nooooooo…the computer says “No way, Jose!” to them all! lol. Sorry my sister voted Lib-dems!”
“Suckered! lol.” hahahhahaa. from Moi! QED to convo.
How did I miss the whole thing? It was simple. I was doing strategies with the Founder of voices of Women Worldwide about an “unsung hero” awards for women who are not acknowledged for their amazing work in the world. Another word, I had a life! 🙂
Enjoy these gifs…its the Olympic in a form that is least likely to cause a nuisance to those living in London and least likely to cost people’s lives in cuts to education and healthcare! haha.
Smug, did you say? Yes. But still TRUE! XXOO CC
I know there are two sides to this: For the contestants and those who had worked so HARD on being the best at what they do. I wish them very very well and may the best person wins! This is not about being sour about the Game, it is being a bit sour about those who USED this to IMPINGE on the Genuine Needs of their own Citizens, Sacrificing their long term well being for the sake of PR and Sponsor Money!
I am reminded of this when a contact of mine said: “Awesome photo from the floor of the olympic games, posted by my friend Tim Morehouse, who is a fencer on the USA Team. 🙂
Look at this and know all of them worked hard to get there! Its a once or twice (max.) in a Lifetime thing for something they devote their whole Life to! “
VERY True! That is the TRUE SPIRIT of the game!
I REALLY wish Tim and all those Competiting the very best. I just hope that when all the Circus dies down, in the aftermath, it is not the Citizens of London who will be SHORT OF BREAD!
The Likihood of that happening is ALSO as British as the Queen! Lol.
