Banish boredom with your best girl friends, some LOL-worthy
activities and a legendary show straight from Londontown. Rumor has it we’ll be
seeing everything from Mary Poppins to Voldemort tonight. What will you bring
to the party?
Make tea. Sip it
in quaint tea cups—pinkies out!—and serve with itty bitty teacakes and sammies.
Ring it. Pile on

Hoop star. Push

happenings: bored athletes, crying athletes, athletes holding video cameras,
slacking flag bearers, ridic-looking berets—anything and everything you can

Get posh. Try out
your best British accent.
Podium proud. Grab

right, I won this thing!” speech. On camera, please.
Pick o’ the litter. Select
which athletes you’d like to hang with, train with, room with, slow dance
Crowning glory. Grab

flags, rings, words, London landmarks, even the mascots!
Do you dare? Up
the anty on your typical game of truth or dare with some medal-worthy whoppers.
Our pick: We dare ya to paint your face Team USA-style…and where the look all
night long—and that includes when ya head down the street to pick up your
