Morning Losers!

Can't decide if I've woken up with hayfever or a cold. Meh.

Got a phone call last night from my Mum saying I need to go to the doctors as she's been diagnosed with High Cholestrol and it's hereditary apparently, so I have a 60% chance I have it, meaning my risk of heart attacks etc increase :roll: Fun times.

Plan today is to work, then go home via Huddersfield sorting office, then sign up to a doctors!

Laters!

    Morning bumders

    TKM- sounds a bit censored , hopefully you've not inherited it.

    Righty then, taking bike and people from uni to Cannock today, they've been bugging about a trail centre ride for a while, and Cannock seems the best compromise of decent(ish) singletrack for a range of people to enjoy and not being so far away it takes ages for the minibus to get to.

    Finally finished changing out the bearings on my frame last night. It's some some additional bodged dust seals over some of the bearings now to hopefully extend their live, though one set haven't fitted in properly, but I'm loathe to remove the crank and chainguide just to refit the bastards. It rides ok, there's no play anywhere so that'll do. I'd rather counted on getting a good few years out of it, but with the manufacturers out of business and no therefore no more spares I'm a bit shagged. the existing pivot bolts and such will do another 9 or so month I reckon, but after that I'm shagged, so guess I will be buying a new (or more likely second hand) frame next year. Balls.

    On the plus side it means I get my first ride in two weeks in tonight.

    TKM - get to the docs and see what they say. High cholestorol can be readily managed - providing you knwo about it. Try not to worry about everythign they'll find wrong with you (the vapours, dangleberries, lycanthropy, ghey aihds, hershey squirts, etc)

    Monrin' indigo children,

    No sleep last night. Tired now. Want to kill. My desk lamp tells me I should, but that f***er only seems to get me into trouble.

    Onwards, To... dunno, something. Coffee is probably involved. Some work too.
    Did I say I wa tired? Can't 'member. so sleeepy. Just rest m'head here a whil

    zzzzz..... ....zzzzzz..... .....zzzzzzz.....

    ^ This

    And because of above I've brought the other bike in today. Supposed to be going out trail riding tonight so hopefully I'll be able to work out if it is hay fever or not. If it is I can treat it if not I'll just have to MTFU and get on with it.

    Another cakeless day but this is probably a good thing as the diet still hasn't started and the shirts are getting tighter. Tea by its self is the order of the day.

    Later......

    High cholesterol is apparently hereditary but I haven't got it yet. Dad has, despite being a skinny person who rides a bike to and from work everyday and has been given diet sheets and things that involve lots of salad and grains and not so much fat. Thinking I am going to have to calm down on the bad foods in years to come. :(

    Work is rubbish. Our only printer has decided to die (it does this regularly) so we have been without printer, scan or fax facilities for the last 24 hours because the powers that be are too tight to get us a second one. I love their foresight when they basically will now have to pay us all overtime to do what we can't do at the moment.

    Boy housemate is picking up a Poochon puppy tonight to take down to Cornwall with him for the parents. This means my night will be disturbed by a whining ball of fluff which I may not be amused with.

    Tkm it can be very nasty, remember the Scwartznegger film where it killed his wife and son so he went on the rampage in columbia, Cholesterol Damage I think it was called.

    From what I've read, if a parent has it, the child has 60% chance of inheriting it. I'm reading this whilst munching on a crumpet slobbered in butter. It's low fat margerine, so I'm ok.

    Went to the doctors, and, typically, picked the one day they close at 5 instead of 6 :roll: so will try again tomorrow.

    Now to make a curry from scratch :D

    Never mind cholesterol, it's blood pressure that'll do me in. I've been trying to deal with Germans, Spanish aand Italians at work today - even on the end of a phone they're pi$$ing me off. So I need a drink - which I've got while I now waste time surfing the interweb :)

    Today I went over to the grey side... I commuted on the Ion. Was hard work on the way home - head wind and slightly more uphill.
    Didn't achieve much at work although I didn't have time for any procrastination...
    Trimmed my hedge after my tea, then ate marshmallows and dark chocolate in a desperate bid for something tasty. Dieting sucks.
