I'm afraid I've become terribly addicted to the Commonwealth Games. Last night I was up until 2am watching the gymnastics and the 20km walk. It was such a joy to see Jane Saville win the gold after being tragically disqualified in the 2000 Olympics just as she was entering the stadium. Australia also came in 1-2-3 in the women's marathon - another great achievement.
Channel 7's also been running a few amusing little features to break up the main coverage. Yesterday, there was a look at Russell Watson's home gym and car, and today they followed around a Mancunian Ian Thorpe impersonator. Since semester starts tomorrow I'm going to have to learn to push the off-button on the remote control.
