have you noticed that castelli's jersey designs have got boring, far too few scorpions, i blame sky. though cinelli also is going through a pretty dull phase since they peaked with their thelma and louise jersey. oh for a 70's revival dayglo tiger stripe cinelli aero jersey. as for the rest, mention them not

    Good moaning all. No wife or brats today. Bit of slab cutting and dads taxi duties.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    I don't do it too often as the wife forgets that I have a real job and tries to give me some of her jobs. Work can be more peaceful sometimes...

    That because when you close the door the minions don't come barging in anyway.

    Working from home, then rack time then to the office to grab some bits before home again.

    Ciao for now

    Woke up for an early run today but my leg was still aching and it was raining so got back in bed for a bit.

    Looks like I'll be putting the summer bike away again this weekend as it's forcast rain again... Oh the joy of it all.

    Freakin' drawing pin (pointy end) went under my finger nail when I put my hand into my drawer to get some Hob Nobs out.

    Think I may die.

    If you were cool you'd have a door frame with a door fitted just by your desk - standalone, obviously.


    Every time people walked around it you can scream at them for not using the door.

    They do say the military has gone a bit soft these days. Wonder how people get that idea?

    Living dangerously - unless you have taped your tubs on then your life is not dangerous my friend.

    Car passed its MOT - get in there.

    In other news, the Evil Empire is thinking about appointing a Global head of tax dodging and I'm in the frame. Think of the possibilities for extra minions and air miles :D Hopefully they will make up their minds about this before the next ice age...

    Best wishes on going for the role - you tax dodger you.

    To think you could have put that intelligence you were blessed with to better mankind in healthcare or any service occupation with a social utility rather than shuffling paper and financial engineering for the shareholders benefit :wink:

    Somehow I thought you might say that :) The shareholders think I'm quite useful...

    The EU would refuse him a visa given his support of brexit, James " I'm a censored " Dyson" and Boris.

    'Getting on' isn't wrong... perhaps just pension him off early.

    The EU might just see it as a fitting story of Crime and Punishment.

    @ The mad platoon loon: No luck mate. You might need a tetanus injection and 4 weeks off on full pay to recover plus some inoculation counselling with a raving ginger nimph woman in a lab coat, wearing nothing but lingerie underneath. That would be terrible, wouldn't it?

    I'd only do it if I can stay here - interesting as Tokyo may be, I don't fancy living there and not sure the EPO would be too keen on the idea either. Luckily they have recently made some global appointments of Brits and Yanks who have stayed put - its a lot easier to do stuff virtually these days and we have no excuse as we're a tech company of sorts.

    No slam dunk yet though...

    @Stevo, would you get a door? Even I've got a door and a corner office with a view, and this is public sector.
