I'm sick

My nephew has RSV and has passed it on to me (only I don't get to call it RSV all I have apparently is a cold). However before crawling back into bed with some peanut butter (it is national peanut butter day) I thought I would just take a brief moment to say how very disappointed I am in Canada: No Barenaked Ladies (yes, they did break up but now they are back together). Plus I really didn't much care for Buble's performance.

However, most of my "anger" is directed at NBC for being so desperate to force yet another "reality" show on us that they cut off the closing ceremonies. Apparently Avril Levigne and Nickleback did perform--maybe even BNL--but NBC didn't cover it until later that night and didn't tell me about that later coverage (admittedly I was switching back and forth between PBS and the coverage so I might have missed a mention--still I say boo to you NBC).

What they did show of the closing ceremonies, though, felt a bit like an elementary school presentation (do you remember the Thanksgiving play from Stepmom?) that not even the parents are particularly interested in. They warned us up front that it was going to be campy, but still I tuned in looking for a party.

Sorry--I get cranky when I'm sick. Overall I thought that Canada did a really wonderful job with the Olympics and that Canadians are really wonderful.

Now I'm off to recover.
