Olympic torch thingy under construction

This is the current state of play with the Olympic torch/flame holder tower, as seen from a train leaving London at Stratford (so apologies for the quality of the photo).

For some reason it reminds me of the creature in Alien: the first film, when it's mainly tail and comes zipping out of John Hurt.

And my cousin Helen says that there's something of the "red weed" episode in Wars of the Worlds about it...

So definitely a sci-fi vibe... I only live up the road from the Olympic Park and was quite gobsmacked by the price of the tickets. Let's hope that the event itself next year turns out to be more ET than Predator.
