Greetings Maggots,

A strange start to the day when one of my work colleagues walks in sporting a skinhead haircut and 7 staples in his head. He had an accident yesterday and even though he was wearing a seatbelt, he banged his cranium on the sun visor hinge, resulting in some involuntary blood donation.

Today's a little cooler at forecast temps of a paltry 27ºC, but I know it'll be hotter.
I have one appointment at 10h00 then I'll be in the airconditionel PortaCabin for the rest of the day watching the clock crawl its way to 17h00

Wishing you all a(n) (un)productive day...

    Morning bumders

    Uni meh is too meh to go in for today so this morning will involve doing some work at home and taking the bike out as it's unlikely I'll be playing hockey with all the snow an ice still down on the ground.

    Mornin' jesters and ball jugglers

    Well, that was an interesting ride in this morning. Holy Cow, was it. Minus 7 and freezing fog, over places where the snow hasn't gone since Monday. It was a 30 minute rollercoaster of 'tread lightly' and near-death-experience.

    Still, in work now, first coffee down and I'm contemplating the day ahead. It will involve welding a particular thing that has apperently caught the attention of a Moto GP team. There's a couple of issues -1) the bratty little b*****d really doesn't like to be welded and 2) we still haven't proved the thing actually works! No pressure then!

    On the positive side - at least someones been noticing some of the funkier s**t we've been doing!

    Onwards! To further caffeine! And molten-metal mayhem!

    A strange feeling of déjà vu today as it is a hearty bowl of porridge and a car to de-ice once again.

    Some shiny bits arrived yesterday but I was not home to receive them so I’ll have to go to the depot to pick them up tonight. One courier did leave a package albeit in my compost bin. :roll: That was fun fishing that one out.

    Finishing off the last of my homemade loaf so its warm toast and tea for now.

    Later……

    Today is going to be censored . People on holiday and off sick, most likely freezing outside.

    But on the plus side, someone's bringing in a severed head prop for me today. I intend to scare the censored out of people with it

    Frustration was the name of last nights fettling.
    Put new brake on, simples, attach new "thinner" hose for internal hose routing, simples. Bleed brake, WHAT, You $$$*^$*$*&^()_*&%$$ piece of cheap _(&)(_(^*(%(*%*%(*%( just bleed will you! 2hrs of faff, then managed to get it sorted by doing it backwards, then wheeled the bike outside to test it and noticed it had a plastic block behind the lever holding the piston in!!!!! Gahhhhhhhhhhhhhh! took it out, worked fine, Rode bike up road, first try of brake, it blew the hose off the new connector at the caliper end!
    at 22:30 i called it a day.

    Anyway onwards to caffine and hiding from work.

    A lot of work to do today as I seem to have procrastinated far too much so far this week.
    (not quite a) date tonight, burger at Annie's Burger Shack followed by a film where we'll squabble over the Minstrels.
    I am wearing a skirt.

    Kisses

    It is what would be considered an above the knee skirt on a normal height person. As I am somewhat taller than the normal, it is now a short skirt.

    I'm feeling your pain! I've been looking further and further out of Leeds, because the rents go down slightly, however commuting costs mean I'm not saving any money at all!

    Rent prices have gone through the roof, yet standards don't seem to have changed in the last 30 years!

    Walking to work was slidey fun this morning. Officially Converse are not good for keeping you upright on ice. They are good for sliding though. Meant to be off to Cwmbran this weekend to visit a friend (must have been bad in a former life) but the forecast currently says heavy snow which means either they will be coming to get me or I wont be going. Currently being snowed in is looking tempting as I don't want to be in work.

    Nobody has friends in Cwmbran, its full of welsh people called Kevin.

    Afternoon Scuttlers

    Off rock climbing in a while after spending 2 hours tearing my hair out at the cc2cc route as I realised that theres 3 days that we end up with, well nowhere to stay in nowhere towns where the origina route planners accounted for grous of 2 or 3. This is leaving the choice of either diverting and putting some road sections in, camping which means more time, effort and equipment or getting really creative and finding someone to pick us up and drop us off ath the nearest hotel/hostel/pub

    itll be sorted though
