Let the overkill begin...


The London Olympics - which will plainly grind the city to a halt (probably literally) and suffer the hugest media overkill imaginable - is bound to bring out the contrarian in the rabbit. Hopping across London Bridge early yesterday morning, the rabbit was confronted by loads of professional photographers and their great big cameras on the east pavement. The object of their excitement? A float with the seven Olympic rings between London and Tower Bridges ...

Cue rolling of eyes. Compliments of the rabbit's homeboy Shiraz, here is a much clearer pic of the stupid thing ...



Today being the 29th February, by tradition women may propose marriage. The rabbit is open to all reasonable offers ...

And with Hat Tip to Charon QC ...

A couple of my friends tried to nudge me into proposing to my boyfriend but I really want the question to come from him. Marriage, and our honeymoon, was mentioned a couple times yesterday in the context of places we'd like to travel. But alas, no proposal was forthcoming as yet. Hoping by the end of the year.

What a stupid barge and rings. It couldn't look more drab if it tried. My friend Val is already incensed about the parking and transportation plans for the Olympics this summer. I'm still trying to wrap my brain around those weird looking mascots.

Sybil - Yes, I suppose Mr Law would not be happy ...

SW - Yes I did see the rings. Do keep up ...

JoJo - I think I'll hide under a stone until it's all over - The mascots? Mandeville and the other one? Yup - pretty weird. Plus the London 2012 logo looks like Lisa Simpson committing a sex act ...

Can I just say I really like the effect/lens/filter you have used to take the photograph of the ringy boat. Looks great!

Was it taken off your phone? ... Are you an iphone kind of rabbit?
