Greetings Maggots,

Ops, I know it's the 14th! Typo de luxe

Another bright sunny day here in this part of the planet
I foresee another day of aircon and sunglasses unlike you poor islanders freezing your buns off..
Other than that, just a day of busyness...

May your Monday pass by like a commuter on a 29'er with slicks...

    Happy Monday 13th then....
  • Mehning Losers!
    Well, the snow never really came (which I suspected). The woman that deals with the post is going to keep quiet today I'm sure.
    My housemate tried dropping a clanger with me last night, telling me that he's moving out at the end of the tenancy as he's bought a house. It didn't phase me at all as I already planned on moving out :lol: Don't know how he's managed to save up the money for a deposit though. I think me having a car is becoming a bit of a burden...

    Anywho's, work (meh), consisting of editing sound and video for something that isn't to do with work, and also looking for places to live; followed by Judo (woo).

    Laters!

    Mornin' powder hounds and slush puppies,

    Well, the ride in this mornin' was 'sketchy' to 'marginal', with brief moments of 'whahey' and 'woahyaf**ka'. Certainly glad I keep the knobblies on the crosser. Bluntly, it was hilarious. Yes, for those that don't have windows, or are currently dead for tax purposes, it's been snowing.

    I booked tomorrow off to have a day at Cannock (because I'm worth it) - this may transpire to be a really bad decision! I would say 'what's the worse that could happen?', but having been involved with the Race2Recovery lads, my measure of 'worse' is somewhat skewed!

    Anyhoo, oday will consist of workshop time - burning s**t and blowing stuff up, and folding bits of metal in ways it really never meant to be folded. Coffee will certainly feature, as will bacons - I missed out over the weekend so I fully intend on making up for it today.

    Onwards! To caffiene! And fried piggymeats!

    Spent the weekend in The Lakes doing bike related things. Also comsumed a lot of bacons (and eggs and sausages).

    Looks like another slow day ahead and the IT at work is playing up so it may be even slower with limited browsing ability. I might have to actually do some work.

    Tea and cake whislt I decide my course of action.

    Later......

    Morning

    Uni meh today. Massive dose of CBA. It's cold outside too which isn't helping. On the bright side the first lecture looks like a doss although the rest of the day is all fun and games learning about cancer :roll:

    Morning mongs!

    Still no snow here. I expect it will start at about 4.30 just in time to cause chaos on the drive home.

    Not much happening today, just the usual meetings, boredon and wondering why the hell half the people here have been given a job.

    Taking the bike out again later as I'm now under 14st and want to get down to 13st and lose the belly I seem to have cultivated recently. Day 14 of the dryathlon and I think yesterday was the hardest so far, I would really have enjoyed a nice beer by the fire with the smell of beef roasting floating in from the kitchen.

    Woo!
    Visit Clacton during the School holidays - it's like a never ending freak show.

    First day back off holly bobs and we seem to have bought the snow back with us, what a to do! Hoping the weather is too bad to drive to Sth Wales tomorrow, i'm thinking it will be!

    Onwards to a day of pointing at laundry (so mrs 13 knows what needs washing) buying food stuffs and loafing!

    Enjoy the rat race and massive traffic jams butt munchers. X

    Morning all...just back from spinning, was 'interesting' getting my car back up my road. I deliberately drove it all the way up and down the other side of the hill (parked pointing down the street of course) so there is more chance of getting snowed in later and not having to do a 90 mile round trip to work later this afternoon.... :twisted: As I look out of my window and the flakes get bigger, my hope grows!

    Today will be filled with a smidgin of design work for a website, then deciding whether to go to other work or not....
    I need a dull day after an epic weekend of climbing, biking, partying and bouldering with the new man (feeling a bit worse for wear).

    No bacons in the fridge, but I do have tomato soup and fresh baked bread so all is not lost!

    Monday love peoples, onward to the rest of the week!
    Ride it like you stole it!

    Legs are a little bit tired after doing the same loop as last week in Peaks. Quite nice doing it week on week as you start to be able to pick lines etc.

    This also described my walk down the road to the bus stop (car frozen shut and didn't have time to faff)
    Currently watching the snow dumping down outside, wondering if I'm going to end up walking home tonight..

    15 work days to go, I've lost 4lbs, I appear to have a crush on someone who is available, for a change, and there will be cake when I get home (steady on boys). Not bad for a monday.

    Kisses

  • Well, a lesser-spotted minion is trying to pull the "The snow's really bad where I am" routine with me, so he's been issued a strike against his name. He's not happy about this, and now appears to be trying to get in to work.

    Seriously, rather than trying to drive in, walk to the main road and catch the bus. It's not rocket science!

    Morning scuttlers

    Now snow here but I have a rattly chest, still I'm off all week.

    Today I shall be tidying and doing a spot more plotting as well as some scanning later. Foxc, I've told you I'm not available and none of my murder skills will make me available ;)

    Later on I shall be going to my first ever Yoga session in an attempt to improve my flexibility ( I cant be doing with having ribs removed)

    Castlelad, many congratulations

    and on that bombshell
    Goodbye

    Mehning feckrs,
    Been in the office since sillyO'Clock, Have got much done but now sort of hit a lull.
    Not a bad weekend but i did lose my temper which was well overdue with MrsVW, all is ok now but i could of gone on a shooting spree if i was on the wrong continent.
    Off to the Solicitors in a bit which is always fun :roll: If the snow starts to come down properly, it could be double fun in the porka?

    I am partially guilty of this today however.....
    If I worked in Sheff I would have tried to get in, but I can't risk being stuck 45 miles from home and having nowhere to stay. The last train back is also before my lesson finishes so I could be royally fecked.

    My minion only had to drive 7 miles though. He came in eventually, and said "Once i hit the main road, it was alright". This means he didn't even try walking to the bus stop! He just gave up! I told him that in future, he should check the buses and trains, because if they're still running, he doesn't really have an excuse.

    45 miles is an exception though imo.
