It’s strange, we keep getting told that the 2012 London Olympic games is about the happen and in my locality as well (east London) yet there is nary a sign of it anywhere in London. I got out and I dont see anyone wearing Olympics t-shirts (I dont even know where to buy one and what it might cost), Olympics stickers, flags or anything. I do know there are some hardcore regulations around using the logo and the catchphrases (whatever they are) but it just seems weird for it to be so not visible.
I mean, I’ve got Vancouver 2012 Winter Olympics mittens and my mother has all kinds of 2010 stuffed toy type things. But I havent even seen any.
It may be that it’s all about to arrive in a few months, but we should be getting excited now. Yet there’s no sign.
It all feels very abstract. I’m probably just gonna go on holiday.
