Mornin' window lickers,

Today will mostly feature me telling a group of industrialists about the wonders of my work. Followed by a brief telephone meeting. Could be worse! To make it better I haz cookies.

Tonight, I shall be packing for the weekend (I need a bit of run-up, me), which won't feature Glenntress, but will feature me pedaling a few laps of a rally stage in Radnor. Should be pretty sweet.

Onwards! To coffee! And dissemination!

....which is what I thought farmers did to get cows pregnant.....

    Morning Losers!

    I had a lie in :D I'm off work now until next Wednesday, so today is a slow, relaxed day preparing for Crudfest 2012! :D:D:D I got the roof rack fitted yesterday, so today is packing and bike fettling (Though not much needed from the brief ook yesterday).

    Really looking forward to it now, though I appear to have picked up a small cold, which I am going to beat the censored out of if it gets any worse (this will not stop me from enjoying myself!)

    Laters!

    Morning censored moppers

    In the office slightly out my skull on co-codamol as I seem to have completely borked my shoulder, no idea how I have done it, but it better be ok for crudfest on friday (though even if its still gubbed I WILL be riding)
    Have managed to get a loan of a set of lights which I should be picking up tonight as the guy has forgot to bring them into the office today. Also got a phone call from the LBS to say the nukeproof knee/shin pads I ordered have arrived :)
    Onwards to coffee by the bucket load and more painkillers

    s'up homos!

    1 more sleep!!!!

    This time tomorrow I will be in scouserpool with a mule, loading the bikes onto the roof and then proceeding to check them, double check them, strap them down some more and cement them in place.

    From there it's Peaks, Curry, bed, back into the car again, and up to GT.

    WINNORRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!

    How do?

    Unfortunately I have 3 more days of work before I go to Crudfest 2012 :( I am now officially jealous of you lucky feckers that start tomorrow in The Peaks.

    I shall, however, be out around Hayfield tonight giving the legs their last spin out before the festivities begin.

    If only I knew the route Richie was taking you - I could lay some Proutster eggs on the trail for you to show my level of jealousy :D

    He's keeping that one very close to his chest. I have a suspicion it's so they never find the bodies.

    Going for a piankiller free day today. So far so good. Also a good excuse to do nothing.

    Morning Mongs,

    Have dropped junior off at her holiday activities and am now sweating in the garden fighting the encroaching jungle again. Will have a bike ride with the ankle biter when she's back this afternoon - if it's not so hot that she refuses to go (not much excuse needed) :roll:

    Morning,

    Just back from the local supermarket where I had to buy a new razor and blades. Not much change left out of 40 squid. Since when did shaving get so expensive (the last shaver I bought was about 8 years ago)

    Counting down the days until my holiday next week.

    BBQ lined up for tonight for some birthday bash or something. Good excuse to get bladdered mid week.

    Alright Scuttlers

    Just sorting my last bits for festival then off at stupid o clock tomorrow

    Mrs Gazlar is making me a quiche with bacon instead of the pastry

    and man child had taken to just doing his own washing up after being told to pull his finger out around the house, well occasionally doing his own washing up, so I have just taken his pile of stuff left since Sunday, put in the washing up bowl and put it in his bedroom so he gets the hint. Seriously, I can see how people turn into the kind of people that leave post its round the house.

    Fortunately Mrs g's sister had now gone from feeling sorry for him to loathing his every breath, so there's progress

    One of the reasons I embrace the beard!

    I've been more productive in my day off than I am at work! :lol: Bags are packed, I'm charging (at least I think I am) my lights, flapjacks made, bought a new bladder as the old one had picked up a government health warning (advice folks, don't leave Ribena in it for more than 6 weeks :? ) and am about to go and fettle with the bike.

    Then time for a film before heading over to Bury for the night, and Souseshire in the morning :mrgreen:

    Supercunt used to do that, for no apparent reason really. Mostly they'd have blindingly obvious statements on them, I used to leave replies on bits of paper underneath them as he was evidently too intimidated by me to speak face to face. He'd write the most useless stuff like "the electric ran out earlier" or there's no hot water... then it'd transpire he'd done nothing about it either, just left it for me to sort out :roll: It's not that hard to walk downstairs round the corner and top up the electricity, he's a bit like Sheldon Cooper really. Except not as smart. He's more of a censored too. He looks a lot like him though and I also have my suspisions about his sexuality. Still, don't live with him anymore :D

    Excellent, the next step is trying to murder him, I'd get digging a whole in the back garden ready for the body. In fact I saw someone advertising some paving slabs on here the other day so you could make a patio bury him under that.

    Evening bumders

    Bacon farming is smelly business. Also landlord is still being an censored , he's refusing to email me or write to me now, just keeps calling and spewing censored , each time I ask for something in writing he hangs up on me :roll:

    This evening will be spent listening to the archers and then watching Midsomer Murders. Yes I really am that cool.

    If I told you you would sell it to the press for monies and haribo ( oh wait a minute this is the bikey forum) In that case it leaves from my front door and a possible end is back at my front door or maybes not depending
    I'm going to blow the bank on a new build ( within reason ) NOW DONE!!

    Everyone else, have a jolly good weekend.
