Manic Monday...

Morning Losers!

Terrible nights sleep as something kept beeping as its stupid battery spat out the remnants of its stupid life. Thought it was the smoke detector so destroyed that at about 12:30 then realised it wasn't that, so at 2:30 I dismantled the carbon monoxide detector. If it was trying to warn me, I didn't care. At least I'd die in quietness!

Any who, work then judo. That is all.

Laters!

    Morning

    After yesterdays cycling, heavy gardening and pub I was asleep by 10pm - so in thoery should feel refreshed, but not yet.

    Onwards to a very manic monday, all without bacon.

    Soooo tired.....

    So, this is what passes for a Monday morning? Clearly I need to decrease the amount of blood in my caffiene stream.

    The weekend was spent in the garage trying to prep racer nouveau for the new season - we're still nowhere close. On the plus side, at least it feels like I haven't had a break! Next weekend I go out and play bikes.

    Work? Yeah, there will be some of that.

    Onwards! To coffee! And maybe bacons!

    Morning slags

    Revision meh continues, nearly there, just 4 more days to go until freedom and bikes. For now though it's caffeine time.

    Busy, busy weekend and no bikes involved at all. Just a weekend of washing, ironing, gardening, taking car loads of junk to the dump etc etc etc. Nice to get into work for a rest even though I'm minionless again this week.

    Three interviewees lined up for Wednesday so hopefully fill the vacancy sooner rather than later.

    Time for tea and interview question prepping.

    Later......
  • Morning all,

    Its Monday, i hate mondays.

    Im ill, i hate being ill.

    My work PC is running slower than i am today.

    On the plus side I do have bacon, not only do i have bacon but it was free which makes it taste that so much better.

    Morning censored moppers,

    Sore this morning after riding the Commonwealth games track in Glasgow. Have to say it's a lot of fun (great dual descender line) and the best bit is it's less than half an hour from my house.
    Anyway best go top up my coffee cup as its empty

    Morning Gays

    Sold the house on Friday (again), so spent Sat viewing houses. It never fails to amuse me how some people live.

    Lunch with Outlaws followed by Iron Man 3 yesterday.

    No bike action unfortunately, but going to Antur on Friday so happy days :D

    Now where did i put that motivation....?

    Morning monkies,

    Back in the office and trying to stay focused, not an easy prospect.

    Still managed a good few rides last week, try for some more this week.

    Morning Scuttlers

    As many of you have read via facebook, Today is 12 months since Kaise went missing at Rheola (29th being the Sunday) but still remember the Monday on here vividly as people fired off messages hoping for his safe return. As such, whilst I am off drinking later, I shall be raising a glass or a two to our absent friend and Crudcatcher Legend.

    Today my mate is coming up from Wolvo for a session on the pop and to head out for my tranny friends birthday, but before that I'm off to get haircutted, shaved, buy a new outfit maybe, gym and coffee.

    Anyway, If the good Lord spares us and the creeks dont rise, I'll see you all later

    Take care

    Morning bumders

    I'll echo gaz in raising a glass to Kaise, only met him the once but he was a top bloke and thoughts go out to all his family and friends.

    After a weekend with the gf it's back to uni work today *sighs* only 10 days then 2nd years done and dusted and I can go back to having a life and riding bikes again! I've ridden more this month than I have the rest of this year so far combined so I can't wait to get back out there and get training for the c2c, lets just hope that mysterious thing known as summer shows up!!

    Anyways I needs food of the non-bacon variety, laters!!

    Morning all.

    Good weekend of riding in general. On saturday I did the flitch pass old railway bishops stortford to braintree and back - thanks lagrange for directions, I got chased by the gypsy dog like you warned me of! Sunday was sweet, there were five us out and all ready to dig so pretty much built a whole new line including a berm to berm and a drop, should be finished next weekend. Also nailed a twenty to twenty five foot drop on an existing line, got some phone clips but pretty censored quality il upload later.

    At uni now but dossing because it's mind numbing.

    Laterz

    Olah all.

    Blimey am I aching like well I don't know what after farming all day yesterday. Also covered in bruises and have managed to pull some muscles down my side trying to jump over a gate. All in all a good day though so I'm happy and I slept relatively well last night too. Found out that the house up the road from the farm is coming on the market soon and the mothership (after about 10 years of us telling her to move closer to the farm) is now considering selling the house and moving! Best thing about this is if she does I will be buying me a horse asap, so I can get back to being a burden on her time even more as she told me this weekend I only go home when I have nothing else to do.

    Work is busy busy but glad I came in on the weekend to clear a load of stuff as my desk looks slightly less scary than it was when I left it on Friday. Domesticity of food shopping to look forward to tonight and quite fancy going to see Iron Man but no one wants to go as they only like girly films. :(

    Looking forward to Friday as I have me a four day weekend lined up so will be disappearing up to the parentals, organising wedding stuff for bridezilla and yes I will have my bike with me so will be out running and riding (I am not looking forward to the sore derriere that will result from the riding).

    Was lovely waking up to a quiet house this morning with no frying food smells or valleys people shouting at each other.

    Sounds like an answer to me, I'm not suitable for human company at the moment.

    Maybe I don't want to sit in the cinema on my own either! Thought of how uncharitable you are making me do that? Huh?

    Watcha, pederasts.

    I'm on a Radiation Protection Supervisor training course for a couple of days. On the good side I'm out of the office. On the bad side I'm on a Radiation Protection Supervisor course. :?

    So far I've had 5 mugs of caffeine. I really need more but the diuretic effect is making itself felt so I'm not sure if it's a wise thing to do.

    So far today I have eaten piggiemeat and bahlamb meat. This evening we are scheduled to eat fishmeat and/or another variety of piggiemeat, so the day isn't a total waste. :)
