Olympics

Damn. I was really hoping we wouldn't win it.... London is gonna be hell to navigate that year, but then as its 7 years in the future I could be living anywhere. I'll just have to engineer a plan to end up in... Japan I suppose if I want the furthest away I can go, although its probably not the best location in the world to avoid overcrowding. I'll probably end up in a job involved in organiing it...

Jack Chirac probably won us this bid, of course, the political genius, insulting Finland a few days before the decision. Hmm, hes probably going to be childish about this now...

I suppose this sould probably stir my patriotism, but I'm not sure it should. Patriotism is a little odd. I am meant to be proud of something that I had nothing to do with it? I should be proud of my nation because I was born here? Its weird. Thats not to say I don't love Britain, 'cause I do. But I don't claim its acheivments to be my own.

Maybe, though the money he put into trying to win it is a bit of a downer.
At first I didn't really care, but after Chirac's reportedly snide remarks involving our cuisine it really brightened my day for Britain to win. I was gonna feel sorry for all the french ppl who wanted to see it, but realised they can get to see it on the eurostar, so :p
