Mass Observation Day tomorrow

Just been reminded by curiouswombat that it's Mass Observation Day for this year tomorrow. This is a project for anyone and everyone to keep a diary for Saturday, May 12th, and e-mail it so that it becomes part of an archive of everyday life in Britain. The first Mass Observation Day was in 1937,and they have, more recently, become an annual event again, building up an archive of everyday life in Britain.

They want as many different participants as possible - why not join in?

The full details, including what to do with your one-day diary after you have written it, are here:

I know that a lot of people also post their entry to livejournal - I can't promise to do that if it turns out to be a really boring day, but we'll see.
