Synchronised avoidance

After my last post it’s been a bit hard to get motivated so write anything else, but I had to get myself organised this morning to write this week’s Online column.

Anyway, I’m continuing with my Olympic avoidance. This evening I spent some time watching my computer at it defragged. I figure that’s about as sporty as synchronised swimming anyway.

It’s nice to know I’m not alone: I’ve heard from four readers who say they are boycotting these games, too. One has even suggested they could also form a synchronised wading team of one so I had someone to compete against.

I can assure, when we hold our world championships there won’t be any fake fireworks and we’ll hand pick all the ugly kids to sing at the opening ceremony.

Then again, we could always take up appliance golf.
