    Just having coffee and then going to get the chainsaw to finish off the job I started 4 weeks ago.

    Procrastination, eh :)

    Sunny in the Midlands, got several of youngest lads mates coming around shortly then taking to see the smurfs at local cinema. Visiting outlaws later then giving eldest driving lessons.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    The Smurfs at the cinema.

    I suggest you take a shyyyyt load of acid or get really meth'd up because that's the only way it's going to make sense and not mess with your head.

    Morning folks,
    MF is actually making sense there, he should be able to get you some good gear as well. Tea has been drunk and biscuits were dunked, now waiting for some of the other slackers to turn up so somebody can make me another one. Bit fresh on the ride in this morning, had to thaw my right hand up with some vigorous rubbing before it would work properly. Now that it works I'm avoiding work. I suspect today may be chaos and I will be dealing with more idiots.
    Onwards, to mediocrity...

    I'm taking something just to stay sane with the brats I'm expecting. Can't say what in case child / brat protection services monitoring the forum. I can live with the smurfs their normal compared to incoming brats

    Todays tasks include...
    Scouting out coffee
    Avoiding responsibilities
    Maintaining the illusion I care
    Watching the nifty lift headoffice drive cherry pickers around

    Just start on the grappa now. Straight from the bottle. I find it's the best way to handle the day.

    Currently spray painting an orange and blue water pistol with the hope of turning it into an awesome DL-44 Han Solo blaster. My son might not appreciate it but I'm having fun :D

    Had a great idea about running to the local office as I had left a bike here a while ago. Didn't really consider how heavy the rucksack would be with cycling clothes, work clothes and laptop, etc - turns out heavy to begin with and ferkin heavy after 11 miles

    Might meet a pal on the way home to extend the ride as the mother in law is staying over

    If the mother in law is staying over I'd meet up with Oxoman and start on the grappa and meth ......

    Oh yeah - it's your annual blood donation time. Well done mate.

    Me procrastinating me. Though I have already helped a bloke out with his Vintage Bike.

    Creocote fences today me. Forecast said very windy so I elected to do that instead of pedal. Lying bast4rds.

    All personal experiences of Grappa haven't been good. Well, at least the aftermath and I say 'all', what I actually meant was 'one'. Once is enough.
    Good luck Oxoman, that's some heavy undertaking that is.

    Laters.

    I was just reminded of an advert I caught the tail end* of on the telly box last night. I thought it was a spoof and part of a comedy show but it was in the adverts with normal stuff. There is a product called VIPoo, it's a little spray to cover the smell if laydees have dropped the kids off at the pool and their Richard's stink. The implication from the name and the ad seems to be that celebrity types sh!t don't stink. Very odd.

    I love the smell of pot pourri and sh!t.
  • MatthewfalleMatthewfalle Posts: 17,380
    I sometimes mix pot pouring and poo in small oil burners - add a tad of diesel to help it burn and place around the house for a lovely romantic evening.

    Gets TDV well In the mood it does.

    This along with the capsules of glitter you can get to make said poo glittery.

    In other news, the coffee machine has been branded, Pelican Rouge which it has been decided sounds like some cheap strip club. Also car randomly is starting to behave intermittently. Gone from hang off the wheel to turn, to overly firm to totally normal. Long may this continue!

    You can't polish a censored but you can roll it in...

    Have you checked your power steering fluid level Step? and also look for leaks.

    Just dropped the iPad in the lunchtime curry.

    As an aside, chainsaws are rubbish. Never start when you want them to. Going to smash it with a hammer and throw in next door's garden.

    Survived somehow, please God no sequels to follow. Roll on half four order will be restored for a while. The Mrs,s owes me big style, other people's brats and smurf movies don't mix. So wanted to box little s,h,I,t,s.

    I'm not sure which would need more work, that or PP#3 I've just been to look at.
