    Bet it won't cost 70 squids like Stevo's bash.

    Definitely Fryday for me, that won't cost £7 even. Just called the dentist to say I can blow drinks through the hole where my tooth was up into my nose. This is not right so I have to go back on Monday. I really really don't like going to the dentist, even though the nurse is cute. I would need to cute nurse to wonderfully indecent things to me to make going in that place worthwhile. I very much doubt this will happen.

    Morning

    Just finished a very large bowl of vegetarian porage as cold defence before a couple of hours of glass cranking...
    Pity the parcel hasn't arrived before the off...

  • Waddup gang,

    Happy it's Friday. Week has gone on a lot longer in Bristol than the U.A.E.!

    On the plus side, I somehow managed to blag tickets to BBC 6 Music festival this weekend! Foals, Kurt Vile, Beirut listen in that order if you haven't heard.

    Laters.

    Mine didn't cost £70 :P Feeling surprisingly good this morning, which I put down the the quality of last night's plonk. Unfortunately the EPO has twigged that I have time to do jobs...so am supping coffee in Waitrose.

    I assume the lady in the corner of the picture is Mrs T47b judging by the paint on her top.

    Is that someone's front room with a Bar mitzvah spread on?

    Well, coffee drunk, bambini sorted, chores done, about to drink some more coffee and may contemplate doing some weights before work. May forget doing work if I can though. In fact, I will.

    One for the absent Vtech I imagine, but anyone know of someone/place which hires out a Porsche 365. Wouldn't mind getting one for my mate on his 'home' wedding party day to arrive in with his wife.

    Found places which will hire out but with them as a driver, 2 seater car for 3 people doesn't work

    Does it have to be an original? Chesil (sic) do lovely exact replicas and may have a demonstrator you can borrow/rent.

    Ever wish you were born with more brain power?

    Ever work with people who are from another planet in terms of ability, intellect and effectiveness?

    Can someone explain how "latent dirichlet allocation" works in laypersons terms when applied to written words?

    At least I'm working "with" the above rather than "for".

    I'm off to the shops for lunch and clear my head.

    Tomorrow I may acquire a new Tarmac.........

    quite pleasant cycle in this morning if not a little chilly, but 42 miles done before work isn't too bad! not sorted my clothing out yet though, i'm either too hot or too cold. Except for my fingers and toes, they are always far far too cold!

    They normally are that colour. Driveways, that is.

    No, I don't eat bananas or spinach :D

    Bear in mind that all language is metaphor.

    Maybe the colour is a grower but my initial impression was nooooooo as it looked cheap. Which it wasn't. That said my concerns around longevity have been dismissed from the replies to my post about living with such a finish on a frame.


    That said a mates matt orange bike looks cool now as opposed to thinking "WTF I know it was in the sale but orange" Mind you he does wear bright yellow cycling shoes, again acquired in the sale. Still, he's quicker than a premiership footballer chimp after under age sex

    No. I have a brain the size of a planet.

    No. I work with, generally, a bunch of imbeciles. One of the dudes in the unit I am attached to was described by someone as "the most stupid man in the Army". The man doing the describing has spent 20 years in the Army (therefore meeting an incredible amount of stupid people) and I value his opinion impeccably and would follow him anywhere.

    No because it's over use of hyperbole. Ask them about about bilateral peri optical echymosis, then when they look confused punch them in the throat to teach them a lesson.

    No. They are working for you. You just haven't told them this yet. If they don't believe you the first time you say it then punch them in the throat until they do.

    Nice. Can you get me a sausage roll please.

    Are you sure you want Tarmac? We had our drive done in printed colored concrete and it was dope.
