What a great ceremony, can’t wait to see the end. Art and story telling and not flashy gimmicks! Great job Brits!

Spoiler alert much? Those of us in the U.S. haven’t seen the opening ceremony yet.

I think it’s a bit of a Marmite opening ceremony; you’ll either love it or hate it and there’ll be no middle ground. I was a little embarrassed by its tweeness to start with but it grew on me. No spoilers here but there was one bit I thought’d be serious where I laughed so hard both cats shot out the room. I hope you enjoy even if Queenie looks so bored you just know she’d rather be at home with a pot of tea and a corgi on her lap.

Sorry, but Beckham S-U-C-K-S! I LOVE the Olympics, but cannot stomach watching them in L-O-N-D-O-N, all because of Beckham and his VILE, VILE wife who will no doubt be hogging camera time like no tomorrow. Why can’t some psycho shoot up these blow-hard celebs instead of innocent Americans! UGH! Can’t stand it!!!!

The Opening Ceremony is awful. China more spectacular than this.
Only Beckham who stole the show. Yes, he is more bond than Bond.

Him on the boat was the hottest moment of my life
