little black spot v olympic torch  

We missed the little black spot on the sun today, but I think we saw something pretty darned near as neat:

Henry stands with Olympic Torch bearer Brian Brunton, helping him carry the load.

I am SO PLEASED with this photo. I took about six, but this was the only one where we got him looking at the camera–because Jedward was just a few feet up the street, and there were jillions of screaming little girls and Henry thought that was Very Interesting. :)

hmmm. Are you certain it shouldn't be "Jedward were"?

I admit to debating that very thing, but forgot to fix it before I posted. Now I feel I should leave it for posterity's sake. :)

...What are Jedward?

are Jedward, whose real names are John and Edward.

They're Irish twins who did well on some talent show thing over here and have parlayed it into international teenybop fame.

Oh, that is Awesome. He's going to be so proud of that picture in about ten years. :)

I really miss having a "like" button, damn it. sometimes I just don't have anything particularly useful or intelligent to say, but having that silly button means I can let people know that I am paying attention and that I think whatever thing has been posted is cool (nifty, neat, awesome, worthwhile, stellar, fantastic... fill-in-the-blank with your own favorite adjective).

so if I start commenting on your posts with a *like* and nothing else... you'll know why.

I do that on LJ posts all the time. :)

I am horrified by the Jedward photo though. Didn't we leave that hair in the 80's?

Many people are horrified by Jedward's hair. One brave man decided to do something about it.

If Brian Brunton's number is 003 and Matt Smith's is 001, how close were you to Doctor Who Eleven? :-D

That's a lovely pic.

I remember when I got to see the torch back in 96. It was spectacular.

That is a fabulous picture! And, as you must know, he looks utterly adorable!

I am inestimably envious of both of you.
