Wow - the opening ceremony was amazing!
What a spectacle - but with such lovely touches of humour. I loved that the Queen did the James Bond skit - apparently they'd said they could use a double but she was totally on board & keen for her first acting role! (Though they did use a double for the parachute bit. LOL)


(I love the little smile the Queen has as she delivers her line!)

And Rowan Atkinson! Hee! Mr Bean at the Olympics. *g*

I got quite teary when Sir Chris Hoy lead out Team GB to Bowie's 'Heroes' & a ticker tape deluge. What a spirit-soaring moment.

I think the whole event was spectacular & a wonderful welcome to London 2012.

Let the games begin! \o/
