    Morning Losers!

    I've got the week off work woooooo! :D I think I'll be spending most of it doing my motobike exams. I have the Mod 1 today, once that's done, I'll have Mod 2 later this week.

    Exciting.

    Laters!

    Happy Mehnday all,
    Sunny and frosty here this morning. Busy day at work later as there are a couple of people off today so I'll have to pick up the slack and actually do something to justify them paying me.
    Need to find some sunglasses, the light is hurting my eyes.
    Good luck TKM.

    Worse ways to spend a Monday!

    Morning 'tards.

    Good ride at Swinley yesterday, sunny day and no boss all week means life is alright as far as I'm concerned :)

    Today will consist of tea and loafing :mrgreen:

    Mornin' window lickers

    My neck hurts!

    Feeling slightly battered after the first race weekend of the season in the company of the Northern Off Road Club. Car had running issues for our first lap, (which ended in a significant collison when someone piled into the back of the car) but we got that sorted, only to have the weekend finished early on Sunday after a very heavy impact (which pushed the front axle back into the remote feed for the oil filter - cue a trickle of oil following us back to pits and the car straight on the trailer in case we couldn't move it later!).

    Next plan is to lift the front of the engine by about 25mm so it can't happen again (we exceeded the excursion limit on the bump-stops and the radius arm bushes) and find some way of stiffening up the front and rear suspension without a) sacrificing small-bump sensitivity and b) costing us the fortune in triple-bypass shocks!

    Other than that, in the office, in the sun catching up with a mahoosive report that needs finished ASAP (then hopefully I can get back to making welds (we have some 'world first' stuff to do middle of the week, and I'd rather not be missing that!). Looking forward to the ride home in blazing sunshine.

    Suh-weet!

    Onwards!

    Good day you mo-fo's

    Heavy weekend of travel and booze has increased m'eh levels to fark off and leave me to die at my computer. In other news just took one of the lads to hospital to get his ingrowing toe nails sorted, his explanation of what they did nearly had me barf!

    Nothing else to see here, move along!

    Afternoon social rejects,
    This morning was spent waking up, the rest of the day will be more of the same.
    Then on to the gym after work to knack myself ready for tomorrow.
    Later bitches

    A proper Crudder would have landed on Manon Carpenter :)

    Evening 'Tards,

    Complete git of a day at work not helped by waking up stupidly early. The rest of the week doesn't look much better either so I think I'll have a stiff drink to compensate.

    I would have gotten away with it too, if it weren't for those meddling kids!

    That sucks, don't wear those silly lobster gloves so you can use all your fingers to count with.
    How long until you get another go?

    Friday. You have to wait 3 full days. Annoying thing is, I was the last of the day, and it took about 10/15mins. He could have easily said "I'll give you one more go at the slalom and figure of eight", would have taken 2 mins :evil:
