    Drop the missus off. Pinny on. Housework. Go Evans for correct rotors. Fit wheels. Make them go whoosh. Take a picture for MF. Sit in clean house on my own. Probably order a pizza and have a glass or 2 of vin rouge. Maybe watch Point Break or Roadhouse.

    Drop the missus off. Chop out the 8 ball of Columbian flake. Call Krystal and Jade. This can only end well.

    Ooooh - Point Break. Good call. I may well do the same, but think a couple of beers is more in keeping.

    Drop a line when you're about to watch it and I'll put it on as well and then we can set up a new thread on here and post whenever something cool happens in the film, which, as it's such a cool film, will be constantly.

    It's the best film. Once Krystal and Jade go home, I'll order a pizza and drop you a line.

    Great news Oxo, enjoy your freedom.
    Slow start is being enjoyed, just for a change. Off to Northampton later for a party, should be a laugh. Need to go and get the car from where I abandoned it last night.
    Enjoy the weekend folks.

    Slackest day I've had in ages. Lemme see... there was tea, brekky, laze in sun for a post-breakfast rest. Bit of mindless web browsing then an extended sun-lounge session till... lunch. Then visit people, which involved coffee and cake and mindless chat. Home for a rest, then drinks, dinner and a bottle of shiraz/grenache/mouvedre blend to finish.

    Not weird at all.

    You're going to have 3 bottle of wine WS?!? Fair play to you.

    Recovering after a very busy week. How tf did I fit all this in when I was in gainful employment?

    Must take them for a walk. It's stopped raining. There's a frog on my back lawn!*. What's it like over there Gazza?

    *Lawn is stretching it. More like a swamp.

    Glad Oxo survived his CO poisoning - that's nasty. Unfortunately for me these still no cure for bloody jet lag. Woke up about 10.15 after being awake for a few hours in the middle of rhe night.

    Just down at Waitrose getting a free caffeine fix. Jobs n footy later.

    No no no, only one. Had to, in support of Oxo. His name's on the label... (top right corner).

    Hoppy, your post reminded me of this character:

    Good news oxo

    Great night of ale with a buddy last night, he stayed over and looked very below par this morning

    Watching tv and resting after a 23 mile trail run

    Family back later and the au pair is looking after the rugrats so we are having a romantic night out

    Showery.

    Off to another 40th.

    I feel sleepy.

    TLW, you ran 23 miles? In the same day?

    Stevo, put the rest of that morris day strip up.

    Fraid that was all I could find of it on t'interweb apart from the Wiki listing which sounds strangely familiar :)
    "Morris Day: Sexual Pervert - A moustachioed, jumper-wearing middle-aged man who is obsessed with pornography, ignoring his attractive wife who waits for him in their bedroom. Kentish Town estate agents Morris Day changed their name to Day Morris around the time of the first appearance of this character."

    Anyway, how about this one instead?

    Don't get Pinno started...all you have to do now is say you run because you listened at school and he'll explode :D

    The acid tests are whether these wheels:
    a. Make you noticeably faster and/or
    b. Get you any attention from attractive females

    They make me look faster, and sound faster. Whether I'm actually faster is therefore moot.

    I think the number of women attracted to deep section wheels must be countable on my fingers and toes!

    Half a win then?

    Female roadies could be an opportunity though. In the same way that female mountain bikers may be impressed by the suspension on my downhill bike. If asked, I can look them in the eye and tell them that I have over 8 inches :)
