Sigh of relief...

Someone asked me why I have "sigh of relief" in my status on Facebook, MSN, and GTalk... let's see:
  • The summer program ended well despite the typhoon
  • I finally got the vacation I wanted (yeah, only 2 days to Thailand, but I'll take anything)... see this piece on what counts as vacation
  • The Beijing Olympics seems to have ended without any major problems (!!!)
By the way, I really like Jim Caple's coverage of the game. Here's one on the Chinese gymnist age scandal. Here's one on Beijing's final grade. I'll share with you the last sentence:
  • "Sometimes, especially at the Olympics, it's best to suspend the cynicism."
Indeed.

Ha! Exactly. That's what I've been telling people from the beginning. It's just a show. You can't take a show too seriously.
