    WFH so I'm going to fit a quick run in with a pal - won't be as much fun as the dirty bike was last night - but training is training

    Later is decorating as the wife has ordered carpets - so we had better get the rooms ready

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Don't do it. Running is evil and your knees will get ebolaids.

    Quiet here today but that's sure to change, first day of working with new bloke, so let's see how he is - first impressions of meting him last week for ten minutes err iffy, but hey, give the dude a chance.

    Probably this. I'm an excellent iffy sniffer, for a small consultancy fee, lodgings, dinner, wine, hookers and some blow, I'd be prepared to suss him out for you?

    I'm not so sure first impressions mean that much. Some people have told me they thought I was alright on first meeting me...
    Nothing special going on here, Wednesday is pub day of course. Brown beer will be drunk in copious amounts.

    Fish and chips up Old Street way at lunchtime. Missus out later. Tomorrow is my Friday, though actual Friday is little one's sports day, dog to groomers, prepare kitchen for painting at the weekend, so not really very Fridayish at all at all.

    Going with you two on this. Theoretically he's with me for 6 months, but with the way my schedule is going I'll see him for about 9 days....

    I reckon we should have a ritual running shoe burning event - get rid of all the evil pieces of footwear at once.

    I am in for that .... was on holiday last week and didn't have a bike, so thought I would throw in a cheeky 10k .... haven run since 2015 and now my foot hurts and I limp when I walk.

    stupid fecking running !
  • haydenmhaydenm Posts: 2,934
    I ran a half marathon on Thursday last week, still can't walk properly. Pharmacist thought it was a stress fracture but I didn't want to go to A&E in Ft William the day before the MTB worldcup as it might have been a tad busy and now it doesn't hurt so much so it's probably fine...
  • seanoconnseanoconn Posts: 7,089
    Currently listening to Catch-22 on audiobook and wondering which one of you would make a good Yossarian. Leaning towards Pinno at the moment.

    On a brighter note I found a packet of Biltng in the car today that I didn't know I had, so smiles all round there.

    Running? pfft isn't that why they invented the bike so we didn't have to run?

    Anyway wenk day thus far trees down overnight making the commute interesting and ive been trying to get someone from out first line support, so the minions who log faults, to give me his workstation ID so I can sort something on it. Two days so far! TWO BLOODY DAYS! Genuinely give up on this kid reported it to his manager in the hope I can get some sense.

    Anyway rant over, coffee needed today pizza later and booze no doubt underside of my foot an knee hurt so im blaming running, or rather the thought of it.

    Epic day yesterday - covered 7km, 9500 steps and 35 floors of stair climbing - craziest day yet. Then, to add to the psychological experiment, up at 1.45am and back into hospital. Back to my bed at 3.30am (Eve's on a bay so I can't stay) and in again this morning.

    Lovely and sunny out - open air motoring with James Greatest playing loud is good for the soul - even if the effects wear off as soon as I have to encounter the brainless twunts in front of me in the multi-storey who drive up 6 floors scanning every bay for a spot when there's several hundred free bays and 4 lifts further up. Drive, you idiots, drive!

    Don't use the lifts - you missed the 10k steps target by 500 ;)

    Hope things are ok

    Ha - I never use the lifts - stairs are the only exercise my sorry censored gets - except when I'm with Eve. I just don't understand why people are desperate to park on level 4 rather than level 6. One woman even stopped and blocked the whole car park signalling for a bay because she'd seen some people walking back towards it. FFS - there's 20 cars behind you waiting and the next level up there are endless spaces. I think I might get away with diminished responsibility...

    Things are OK thanks - in a "as good as they can be when your daughter has leukaemia" kinda way :wink:

    You were right. It was unpleasant. The GF has signed us up to do the Edinburgh marathon next May so I thought I'd go out and see what I could do, I ran really far from the house then regretted it

    How does it work once the stem cell stuff works? Don't remember much about it other than being told if I had it I would be in isolation for several weeks until I got some semblance of an immune system. Obviously she won't be on a communal ward, but can you or Mrs MRS stay with her?
    Glad things are as ok as they can be.

    No - all it means is that you'll collapse from knee ebolaids in the middle of nowhere and have your limp yet still alive carcass ripped apart by wolves and bears, giving you a ridiculously painful and slow death.

    When it happens can I have your watch?

    Normally she'd be in a room (the open bay is only 3 beds and managed by gender) but there's 2 terminal cases using 2 of the 3 normal rooms and then Eve will be in one of the two hepa-filtered over-pressured rooms for her transplant. I can stay in the rooms just not on the bay.

    Girl in the bed opposite seems to have most of her extended family visiting so Eve isn't getting much sleep.

    You should ask Yossie.
    Yossie was named after Yossarian? I had know idea! :D You're definitely one of the characters, I'm just not sure which yet :D

    YouTube and hopefully the whole book is there.
