Oi. Paris. Lopsided house, or is it right side up and it's the rest of the world that's subsiding....

    What day is it anyway?
    Not the day to change my chainring. Didn't realise some have asymmetric bolt positions, only realised after taking it all to bits obviously.

    I thought the rules stated it had to be posted on the day not half a day before, otherwise it don't count. Only excuse is if it's already Thursday in your country already and I suspect it's not.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    I know but blink and you miss stuff. Anyway, in the UK t'is bedtime and the hard work is done for tomorrow. Just think, January 9th 2019 will never happen again.

    Paging Pinno to the thread. He pretends to dish out the rules.

  • It's thursday in paris now but not back then
  • pinnopinno Posts: 42,789
    I wonder what and where SG will post now.

    We'll sit here with bated breath. (Although I'll f*ck off to bed in between now and that point).

    I thought you had to have had a sleep and woken up ready for the day to start a daily post. Have a word Harv, it ain’t big and not much around here is clever.
    Been to the pub, beer has been drunk and the world has been put to rights. Unfortunately I doubt it was listening.

    Confused - do the rules allow me to post on an illegal thread or do I have to start a new one?
  • oxomanoxoman Posts: 9,731
    Start a new one
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Ask Uncle Pinno.

    I might start a thread for Saturday now because that's a good day of the week.

    Mainly coughing today.

    Trying in vain to contact certain organisations. Getting on a TGV and buggering off somewhere would be ideal.
    Has SG died of food poisoning from Tartare?

    Laters.

    WFH - meant a couple of miles with the hound rather than the usual mile - so should hit steps target

    Later is a chilled run with walking the hills to protect the highly strung hamstring. May also put tyres back on the winter bike now it’s back from the doctors

    My weekend started yesterday/today/tomorrow/delete as appropriate, nice to have a short back to work week after 4 weeks off. Grafter, so I am.

    This day, whichever one it is, will be mainly pottering about avoiding stuff.

    Keep turning your respective wheels, hamsters.

    Maybe yesterday's masterscheme involved giving some people a lift in a truck up the M6 and he didn't manage the victorious part :roll:
  • If anyone has a copy of a hand-arm-vibration policy I'd be very glad of a copy :roll:

    The usual boring desk stuff (see above) interspeckled with the occasional holiday purchase and bits and bobs for the chalet.

    Might go for a run later, maybe try 10km again and up the ante at weekend.

    Good plan may as well cover Sunday as well. It'll be like pinball when you've got loads of balls in play. Fnarr fnarr.
