    If you're in the US this is cheating 'cos you started the thread before you went to bed. Tut tut.

    On train to work, one more day to get through for now. A bit more mopping up of year end aftermath and hopefully not too many stoopid requests from the Kingdom of Far Far Away.

    Is there an opposite to Glandular fever ? .. I think I have it

    I thought the trainer must have miss calibrated when I averaged 30w more than normal this morning and got an ftp 11w up on my norm ..... but then I got a PR on the way to work on the SS with knobbly tyres

    I put this down to contracting the opposite of Glandular fever OR .... I have had glandular fever all this time and now I am recovering from it

    I love self medication ..... when I was fat it was because my metabolism was slow, now Cav has GF I have a whole new reason to be sh1te !

    Thursday? Feels like a Saturday to me. Unfortunately there are plenty of jobs around the house that I need to do. Spot of flooring today I think. Might go to the pub with the Mrs later.

    You can't lay floors on Maundy Thursday!

    And Jesus said unto his disciples "Thou shall not lay floors, for Thursday is a day to get tanked up on bread and wine, coz you never know what's around the corner like."

    Did they teach you nothing in Catholic school!?

    That's one hell of a tea break. Can I get a job at your company*? Do you get biscuits with your tea?

    *Scrub that, I don't want a job. I have a job being me.

    well ...... when I say not fat .... I am fat in the eyes of Castelli .. but under armour think I am an 11 year old girl ... so I guess it all depends on your point of view

    Probably still fat for a cyclist.

    my cars have all done this same thing ..... you go for a drive and they suddenly feel fast and quiet and nimble ... and the next morning they don't start and half the internals end up in the oil pan

    Take her to the vets and get her bits taken out.

    Scheduled for next month. She's too young at the moment. Half a mind to just do it myself. How hard can it be? I'm sure there's a manual for this.

    Slow start, shopping and haircuts for the brats then kip and work tonight.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.
  • homers_doublehomers_double Posts: 6,703
    Services and a chicken salad at the moment for me. Home early though so might do a few jobs about the house so I get an easier weekend.

    Easy peasy. Sterilise your instruments, make an incision, take out anything that doesn't look important, sew it back up. Cats are as hard as nails, she'll be fine.

    hmmm, they are kind of the opposite of bikes IMO ... easy to take apart, but a nightmare to put back together .... where as bikes can be a nightmare to take apart but once in bits easy to get back together.

    although internal cabling is probably a bit like veins .... you might end up re-routing some of them externally

    Penultimate day at work for 17 days today, Cannot Feckin wait. There might even be some bike riding.

    £5 per bag for synthetic 'spice'. Stop all the real weed getting through the ports and you end up with a far worse epidemic.

    Fermented apple based drugs for me tonight. That was a bit of a censored day considering it was the last day of a 3 day week.

    And its the long slog North this weekend along with 10 million others...
