Prayers in the park

Haven't been out for a run since the Crisis Square Mile Run last Thursday as my leg's been hurting since. Not sure why, maybe because I forgot to stretch afterwards? I emailed them asking how long the route was, as other people had measured it as just over 3 miles and I got an email back saying the revised route wasn't any shorter than the original route and that it was just under 3.5 miles but maybe their "just under 3.5 miles" means the same as my "just over 3 miles". Hmm.

Anyway, I went out for a run/limp round the park but not sure that was such a good idea as it's hurting more now, oops!

There were muslims praying in the park. Praying. In. The. Park. For f**ks sake, there's plenty of mosques round here, go and do it there instead. I know that's not very tolerant of me but I don't like religion and I certainly don't want it shoved in my face. They'd better been praying for England to win the footy, that's all I can say. Heh heh.

Speaking of the footy, I went past a pub in Waterloo that had a poster up saying they were charging £10 to watch the footy there tomorrow night. You do get a free bottle of Bud though. Woo. £10 to go to the pub? It's going to be the emptiest pub in London tomorrow, as I haven't heard of anywhere else charging to get in. I've promised Goosh from the Designer's Block forum that I'll stand outside the pub and peer through the window to watch the match tomorrow as I'm not a proper fan and I'll get in the way of the proper fans if I'm allowed in the pub. Ho hum. I'm only going for the drinking bit of going to the pub anyway, not the football bit.

Oh, nearly forgot, I wanted to post my picture of the banana mountain that evolved after last Thursday's race. My banana's the one on the top.

Oh and I also nearly forgot to mention that someone found my site by searching for "calories burnt by doing strange things".  I wonder what they were hoping to find?  The mind boggles.
