    Was busy cycling to work while the sun was rising over the 3rd best football club in Wales.
    Got the sexy tights out today because it's Friday (and it's damp and nippy out there).

    Morning Great flat-footed grizzly bears

    Chilly and windy.
    Might watch footie though a crowd of rednecks shouting "Yew. ess, eh, yew ess eh. yew ess eh..." a lot will be annoying.

    Independence did them no good after chucking tea overboard. Sacrilegious heathens.

    What temperature is it in the land of the Tabby SG and why aren't we getting any feline tales from you sir? Poor show from our own correspondent.

    Are they cheaper than the Jalepeno bites from Aldi?

    Morning all,

    Good sleep after a visit to my cousin on deepest Sarf London last night and a latish finish. Senior hound had his loose tooth extracted no problem yesterday but was still a bit subdued due to after effects of the general anaesthetic.

    Work work work today then park myself on the sofa with some tramp fuel for England game this evening.

    Sounds like bliss. Where are you? Could do with some warming sun.

    Hurrah! More drugs! This time Diazepam. Bet that goes well with the Tramadol. Oh well, it is Friday after all.
  • Fairly slow day at work so done some online shopping. Physical shopping later then attempt to watch the TV with two screaming kids in the house.

    Gosh, opioids and benzodiazepines! You'll be pinned to the sofa/bed by the drugs as well as the bad back.

    Friday is not calm, windy as. Nice ride though, once got the legs and lungs coordinated. Pedalling downhill FFS, headwind, usually braking for the bends given it's not a closed road. Mucho agua hanging about.

    Sounds bloody painful, I sympathise and can remember how much it hurt when I was laid up.

    Is it down tools time yet? Too lazy to put the light on.
  • photonic69photonic69 Posts: 2,205
    Yup, off me trolley, high on drugs!!! Just been having to deal with a particularly nasty and credible PayPay Phishing attack!! Seemed completely kosher. I logged into my account on a different PC and browser and it was there along with the message and the phone number right on the PayPal site. So I declined it and reported it. Then changed all my passwords and 2 factor authentication. Try doing that when you are completely spaced out and in a panic and in pain!!! Bugggers

    It's getting towards tramp fuel and footy o'clock. (Unless you're Scottish or Welsh, in which case it's just tramp fuel o'clock)

    That looks pretty obvious to someone who's not high as a kite :smiley:

    We get sent dummy ones though to keep us on our toes and make sure we report them - so and so has handed in their notice their resignation letter is attached, this was left on the scanner is it yours? etc.

    Yes, avoid any online financial transactions until the TUE stuff gets wound down @photonic69 ffs.
    Stay safe.

    But if you get a call from my exiled mate from Nigeria who needs a some help...

    Yeah, I had a close call. Almost bought an inflatable kayak from this guy somewhere in the Sahara.

    That was quite legit - he had little use for it.
