Morning all!

Well, I went out for a lass's birthday last night after work, and drank just the right amount to not be hungover this morning, but not feel perfect. Quite a good night out really. Had a laugh and talked to some new people at work (one of who I think I have successfully scared :D )
Today, more work, and then I think I'm going out with Hot Librarian, we shall see.

Laters!

    looks like the blimmin sun is out again! bring me rain so i have an excuse to be a miserable get!

    off to pick up the bike after the LBS have fettled her, might find some other goodies get bought as well. need foods, need drinks.

    got an afternoon of drinking on friday, golf themed, bottle of beer=par three (to be drunk in three swigs) pint=par four, pint and a shot=par five. think it could be very messy with a very early finish thrown in for good measure!

    Morning Chimps and Chimpettes,
    Long day yesterday down in Tewksbury, i seem to spend a lot of time there nowadays, but noticed its not too far from FOD so will take bike (once working properly) on the next meeting down there.
    Did night ride last night on 26" wheels, with big fat jumpy tyres on there, god i feel it today! Hopefully my new spoke will arrive today and i can get my proper sized wheels fixed.

    Today will be filling in gaps and answering lots of questions and hopefully organising an interview before friday as i'm off for 2 weeks come friday night.

    Anywhoo 2nd pot of coffee is being consumed and new minion owes me bacons!

    Knackered today. Staying in waiting for some paving slabs to be delivered, doing some uni work/watching TV most of the day then. Bikes will resume tomorrow.

    Anyone, anyone at all doing the fod ride? Got 10 hours with the massive censored that I had yesterday instructing me. Monday I was doing fantastically according to the instructor I had and he couldn't believe how much info I've picked up over a route uber driven twice, the guy yesterday basically treated me like scum because I couldn't name every minute detail on the route and refused to drive in the manner he wanted me to drive and was not happy when I pointed out that I was there to learn the route, not how to drive a train as I've been doing that almost ten years. This means today is going to be hellish until 7 tonight

    Hoping my brake lever gets dispatched today so I can sort that on Friday

    Oh and VW if youre ever heading down FOD give us a shot, it may be one of my rare and random days off

    Morning Wasters,

    Feeling lazy today so will go for a swim later and do a bit of fettling on my skis before I pack them away in the loft 'till next season. Grass is growing like it's on speed so may have to do a bit of hacking in the garden (yawn).

    Hope your day's as exciting as mine...

    Morning all.

    Today is meh, half a wisdom tooth fell off last night, can't get in the dentist until tomorrow at 5.45pm and I'm supposed to be driving to Keldy on Friday.

    The new IT system also classes the on-one site as 'Weapons' so I'm not even going to bother trying any other sites.

    Evening all.

    good Ride round Cwm last night, today is play SWTOR day after work, and tomorrow social ride day loving the sun, but she will start to hide come the weekend most sad :(

    Anyone who wants rain is crazy or lives in London and must be thirsty :P luckily here in Wales we have plenty of water stored so ner ner.

    I wouldn't really call a 30 minute drive an LBS, not really 'local' ;)

    Ok, cant promise I'm about but depends if I'm being instructed and who I've got, or failing that what shifts I'm on.

    Oh and cheers Welshkev.

    Bicyclepirate, I've tried everything on this giant censored , jabbing it in the eye with a chip fork, rubbing it with a chilli, slamming it in a heavy bibleand hitting it with a cold spoon.......It wont go down, even when i saw fully-mongs mum undressing

    Evenin' Poop-deck pirates

    Now back from travels. Paris was sunny and full of BSOs and drivers with zero ability but ambition in spades, so it gave the roads a certain focussed lethality, especailly if you had to cross the f*****g things. In terms of pedestrian friendliness, it rates up there with 'minefield' and 'punji-stick farm'.

    Shock lesson - not all Parisians are rude and c*****h.

    I however, still am. So f**k 'em.

    ...with big sticks.

    Sideways.
