    Morning

    Sitting in a timber shed thing in a field watching the sun come up over the bay below. Not a bad start to a Friday, although it was a bit chilly overnight.

    Was going to go for an early morning ride around some lanes but CBA. Going to weatherspoons for breakfast. Deadpool in IMAX later, not my idea.

    Paragons' TT? Are you doing the 2 up?
    I think I'm giving it a miss this week.

    Morning, lovely day again in sunny Scotland. They have implemented a new video conferencing system for a meeting this morning which means I had to be slightly smartly dressed, much preferred it when I could call in dressed like the tramp I am. Meant to be racing this weekend but my cold keeps getting worse and my van isn't back from it's MOT yet, camping it is.

    You could just sit really close to the camera so they cannot see what you're wearing, or stick a Lego man in front of it.

    Morning folks,
    Sunny but bleedin' chilly out three this morning. Only about 5' in the park so I was very glad of gloves and knee warmers being added to my clobber this morning. Got to work to find the computer system wasn't working so rang a customer in Holland that I get on very well with to arrange a weekend away with the Mrs and daughter over the August bank holiday, it's just after GCSE results so hoping we will be in celebratory mood.
    No racing for me this evening, well apart from racing back to civilisation from the badlands of Hanworth. Kingston beer festival is tonight's entertainment.
    Oh yes, passed a bloke on a disc braked Ti bike in the park. Clearly wasn't H³ as there were no deep sections and he was skinny as a rake.

    Frost of all thisngs this morning so chilly and slippy always livens things up when your half awake. No SCR for me living just out in the sticks has its perks/downsides.

    Beer festival though, that's an event I can get behind!

    I was thinking of taking a photo of me sitting at the table in a suit then sticking it in front of the camera for ever more. There would be no flaws in that plan and I am a total genius. On the plus side, no one can see my bottom half so I have some 'freedom'...

    Fair point, well made. :lol:
    HM you could stick some greaseproof paper over the lens, then if anybody asks what it is act dumb and then mildly disgusted, imply it's something else and they will be so appalled they won't ask any more.

    I was thinking of rubbing the lens with vaseline like they did in Rambo to make it look like they were in the jungle. Not sure why I would want to make it look humid and steamy here though, although it might challenge they're london centric perception of scotland...

    I think I would sooner post pictures of my GF with no clothes on than my CEO's wife's identity on here...

    And no, I won't be doing that either :wink:

    I'll refer you back to the old MBUK forum when I posted a link to a friend of mine in 6th form who sent pics into the FHM 'Highstreet honey' page, a few members decided to make good use of the comments section to explain why they were there. She read them and I got slapped the following Monday. Luckily we had a fairly banterous relationship so I survived, though the next time I saw them in the flesh I couldn't help but feel slightly ill that you perverts had seen them too...

    Let this be a lesson to you all. As it turns out, no good can come of posting pics of your friend's norks on the internet.

    I disagree, I have no problem with other people posting their friends' norks on the internet.
