From work I have just been given 'My Time' by Bradley Wiggins, which I love. What did you get??!
Why? Because I'm guaranteed a seat all the way in.

    They didn't like it.

    luckily i've hinted enough that the gf has me a parktools stand :D
    the mother got/getting me a tiny pump i've been needing for the saddle bag

    the rest is non cycling :( and if only i could hand my notice in too, i'd be a super happy chappy
    we didn't do xmas at work, mainly because they are so tight but, avoiding havin to give someone you honestly hate a gift is the flip side :)

    Our gift from work is to come in and keep the office warm, o and an insincere xmas card


    EDIT - This year my xmas spirit is in a bottle with Havana 7 on the label, this is written notice that i will be wrote off and will be even less understandable in my rantings from 8pm ish :roll:

    What did you get??!

    Socks, as usual....
    Nobody told me we had a communication problem
  • What did you get??!

    I got bladdered, took loads of drugs and had a night of wild sex before waking up next to a woman that had seen better days. That's when I realized I'd made it home safely. :wink:

    :shock:

    That made me crack up laughing :D

    In related news, I'm eating my final BBC fry up - five items for £2.50. I'm kind of going to miss this place.

    I thought the standard BBC leaving present was half a million quid.

    Secret santa gave me a pack of nude playing cards, an in IT mug ("Have you tried turning it off and on again" / "Have you tried shoving it up your ars£") and champagne. Clearly not a work one.

    Family and friends briefed to support the bike related gear fund.
    What do you mean you think 64cm is a big frame?

    I'd forgotten all about that. You know, because I have such a big salary anyway? I'll go and refresh HR's memories. Thanks for the reminder :D

    I thought she had said, on this very board no less, that she wasn't into that sort of thing.

    Are you planning to "educate" her in your ways, you filthy old man?

    The knack of your abilities to get from "Xmas Pressie" to "grubby sexual innuendo" in two pages must surely be a record, Greg? :)

    Assuming you haven't read it yet, what do you love about it?

    If I'd have known you wanted a grubby sexual innuendo for Xmas I'd have given you one. :? :shock:

    The thought behind it. Watching Wiggo et al made my Summer.
