The Joseph Goebbels Memorial Fun Run
mini me + poo
... comes to Newark today. I'm torn between ignoring it (as much as possible - it tries to bring the Olympics to everyone via a series of gridlocked streets) and going along to boo the cynical commercialism of it all.

it's going through here when i'll be at school (and it's the last day of class so i really have to be there to hand all my work in) which takes the choice away from me. I'm kind of intrigued as to what people will be doing to celebrate - one of the pub/cafes along the sea-front is advising an "ancient Greek barbecue" (with an "ancient Greek raffle"!) and the yarn shop has been asked to cover a statue with knitting ...

The highlights for me were the cakes sold by the church at the end of the road, and seeing the usual bunch of tat sellers have to flog Union Flags because they couldn't sell Olympics related stuff.

Large numbers of people did turn out. In Nottingham, the crowds rivalled that for the visit of the Queen (which I would have skipped too..)
