That's cute

In my house we just musicals or disturbing dramas (or both) and eat cake.

Honestly, I haven't even kept up with our Olympic squad. Do we have many medal hopes?

I'm fucked if I know.

Apparently we might pick up a few medals. Beyond that, I'm unsure.

Still wish the rugby 7s was an Olympics sport as well as a Commonwealth Games sport, as we'd dominate that.
