As Piña the Diva has failed and started a thread before going to bed I thought I'd show him how to do it properly.
Morning folks,
I had a slow wobble in to work as it was rather warmer than I expected and I couldn't be arsed to stop and remove a layer. As it's Friday pig based fried meats will be in order, Cody will condemn me to hell for this. But I don't care as he also says that's where all the hookers and loose women go so it sounds like fun.
Busy weekend of DIY of the home and velocipede variety coming up, probably interspersed with beer.
Onwards and upwards...

    Morning,

    And welcome all the the rightful Friday thread. Some people eh. :wink:

    Woke up at 7.45, got on my conference call with the French - person we really needed on the call was not there and I am awake now so stuff it.

    Looks like in Codyworld I'll be somewhere hot getting prodded with three pronged implements on multiple charges. Although I'm struggling to think anyone here that will escape the day of reckoning :)

    Schools are out for half term so stropteen and stressbag are still in bed. Once they get up the usual battles between what we all want to do will commence. So I'll enjoy the peace with a coffee for now.

    Some bad uns on this forum these days.

    In work, afternoon spent kicking out the students that make your degrees worthless. Chocolate and good sandwich at lunch if I can get out at 11.30. Not holding my breathe.

    Was grim walking the dogs and turning out the horses earlier, gave riding a miss.

    Letting sleeping dogs* lie eh Stevo

    Sleeping cows might be more appropriate. Unfortunately she's awake now...

  • Fish and Chip lunch day today. Chips are the carb loading for tomorrow's Beachy Head marathon.
  • Early finish for a half term bikeless week in Aberystwyth with the family.

    No pigs were consumed today, porridge is the only thing I've eaten and I'm fecking hungry...

    Haven't stopped eating since getting off the bike - i'm well farqed I am innit. That'll teach me for going for a ride in a gale. Perhaps I should tell Cody I had a ride on Gail.

    In the office this morning followed by a trip to pick up my new bike.

    Got it home and noticed the front wheel fitted the wrong way round .... Hardly inspires confidence :(
    Still thinking of something clever to say!

    The front wheel was the wrong way round?!? Boy that could have been fatal. I'd get on to trading standards if I were you and start a thread in 'Campaign' to get this shop closed down.

    The bike had disc brakes rather ineffective ones at that. :shock:

    I'm just waiting for a roadie to claim this is an advantage of rim brakes compared to disc brakes :P
