    Good call that man I went and bought a load of fizzy cola bottles the other day. They rocked.

    Food of champions that.

    I kept some bloke with multiple dislocations and very minor hypothermia going by feeding him cola bottles and Zthai green curry cup a soup once. 16 hours in a freaking bog on Brecon and the helicopters couldn't get in because of the weather.

    He ended up in Aberystwyth general. I don't know what was worse.

    The Co-Op fizzy cola lances are also really nice as they a tad sour as well. You can also use them as pointers for clinical diagnosis should you have no Twiglets to hand.

    Strange day today........

    Work realised on Wednesday that their nominated crisis management person had actually left the company 6 months ago, so muggins here has been selected. Job entails yelling at people if anything mental kicks off in or around the office, so I'll be great at that. My one proviso was that I'll need a cup of tea to perform said task - no tea, no crisis management.

    Still full of snot, hopefully shift it over the weekend so I can get back to Commuter Racing on Monday.

    Would also recommend the Lidl ones. Actually, might pop in tomorrow and get some.

    do you get paid extra?

    What sort of crises do you expect? Can me, Garry, Pinno, Sean's et al pop down and create a crisis for you?

    Ooooh - good call that man. Will have to try some.

    I was actually buying myself some moralibo the other day and realised you could get more bang for your buck by buying packets on "3 for £1" from the Co-Op than by buying a packet of moralibo.

    Coop ones are surprisingly good. They kinda taste healthier, somehow.

    Where are P and S tonight?
  • MatthewfalleMatthewfalle Posts: 17,571
    Not sure. I think S said earlier today that he was on a promise, P seems to have disappeared. Perhaps P was S' promise?

    I'm here. dunno about Steve Davis.

    I was very disappointed today, no - devastated. I went to Morrissons specifically to buy some Haribo Jelly men (and some shopping but we won't go into that). I always pick out the Jelly men from the Star Mix. I have plenty left of the star mix but no Jelly men. I prefer the Jelly men when out on the bike.
    I got to Morrissons and made a fantastic entry when Toots 2 said "I want the basket" and in the process of grabbing it - I was leaning, pulled me over and we hit the deck. I'm clutching me knee and she's moaning about "my sore head". I managed to not fall on top of her. I doubt Mrs P would have been impressed with the lattice pattern of the basket on Toots 2's head.

    Fair play to some folks who came to help but worse, when I got to the Haribo section, there was no Jelly Men. No empty box. No space where they should be. No ticket either.

    Bollox.

    ...and my knee is fooking aching but it was a good pedal today if it;s my last ever ride.

    Nope, don't get paid extra.

    It is just usual corporate bollox to have someone to coordinate stuff in case there's a terrorist incident or similar.

    By all means you can come down and create havoc. The more the merrier. Except next Thursday cos I'm meant to be out on the beers that evening, so can't be stuck in the office.

    I do that in my work, "disaster recovery" they call it. Twice a year I get sent to a secret site. I even have to blinfold myself as I drive there, just so that I don't know where it is!

    Whilsy I'm all for Haribo, I draw the line at anything other than Bassets Jelly Babies.

    It's an old model. Don't know where to get one.

    Actually, I've changed my mind
