In the office, sitting at my desk (obviously not working), eating dinner and enjoying my third employer-provided-beer before I head out for the evening.  Things are good.  ;D

Is that really clever, or just a mistake? My Latin is lacking.

Anyway, sitting at my desk, sorting out another application form, and waiting to pop off to the pub.

Turussa. I feel sorry for you. 10 hours - yukk. But according to a so called friend, Toronto is worth the journey as the women are easy (they must also be desparate, especially if they want to spend time with him, and having seen pictures of his fck buddy they are especially ugly too). So perhaps there are better reasons to go to Toronto.  My experience of Toronto is it has shops that sell some amazing boots. I quite liked the place as people kept paying me compliments :)  Have fun.

5/32" is more common.  Annoying little things, especially if you decide to load a 1 1/8" headset with loose ones - it takes about a gazillion of them.

Turussa. I feel sorry for you. 10 hours - yukk. But according to a so called friend, Toronto is worth the journey as the women are easy (they would have to be desparate to want to spend time with him, having seen pictures of his fck buddy they are especially ugly too). So perhaps there are better reasons to go to Toronto.  My experience of Toronto is it has shops that sell some amazing boots. I quite liked the place as people kept paying me compliments :)  Have fun.

Back to topic. I'm drinking tea, watching the wonder years and easing tummy discomfort with a warm wheat bag.

I've already had an interesting experience with one... I prefer a challenge though. Toronto's a nice place especially around china town and little Italy and they have a MEC shop :). Feels tiny after New York.

Sitting at the desk in the playroom, in the dark.  I lit a few candles in the living room when I got home but the rest of the house is dark and silent, just the sound of one of the dogs dreaming and moaning.  I ought to eat dinner but am not hungry, lunch might be a good idea as well.

Time to make a smoothie perhaps ???

You took a laptop into the bog?

I feel as if the forum has been sullied.   

I have gigabit ethernet in the bog, the laptop is often in there.   I do wash my hands before touching the keyboard after, ahem, using the bog paper.   

Mrs rae says this is (one of) my worst habits.  She despairs when she comes home and finds the laptop, still powered up next to the trap, with an empty coffee cup on the windowsill.

I have been here since before 8am.

My Eee PC keeps me warm; I have a landline phone by my left foot and my mobile on a lanyard round my neck.

I have had short breaks for breakfast, a snack and the loo.

After I phoned the suppliers, they told me I should get my delivery between 1.30 and 2.30. David is out in the observatory, having been unavailable or asleep most of the time.

Still on a train... Almost at KX now, ears popping.

LOL! That reminds me of when we were coming home from meeting the PM at #10 with my 86 Yr old Mum (Land Army presentation).

She is almost completely blind, so tends to be made jump easily, esp by loud noises. It was a hot day, and train was rammed, so all the windows were open. Whilst she was doing fine as long as I warned her when the next tunnel was coming ( for those who don't know, the train hoons along there at about 100, and the sequence of tunnels are LOUD) I didn't anticipate an oncoming train in the tunnel - and the noise was incredible. My poor old ma levitated a good couple of inches off the seat, still in a perfect seated position, eyes wide as dinner plates, and she grabbed hold of the woman sitting next to her.

My oh my how we laughed at her  :thumbsup:.

Kirst,

Don't worry about the broadband thing. When you finally admit defeat, give up and go back to a 56k dial up ('cos mobile broadband sure as hell won't work either - Sods Law) you'll find it a truly liberating experience. You'll wonder why you ever bothered chasing an 8Mb connection. Actually thats complete bollocks but I hope it made you feel better - albeit temporarily.

With hippopotamas in silken pyjamas
No more will he teach them to sing..."

(Flanders and Swan, The Hippopotamus Song) Do they mean you?  Although I don't think you have the figure to be a hippo.

Eating ginger-bread christmas trees as constructed by daughter no. 2. She's a bit pissed off having not got a job she was interviewed for on Wednesday. Feedback was that she scored as well in everything as did the successful candidate except for writing a letter (job was in policy at the National Aids Trust). This was a timed exercise as part of the interview and she was unable to finish the letter because Microsoft Word crashed - on one of the NAT computers.

'Flu?  Pah, 'flu's for wusses.

I went to the doctor this morning with my cold that will not go away and he says he's sending me for x-rays to check I haven't got TB, since I've got the right symptoms and I'm in a risk group.  Srsly.  ::-)

He did also say it was extremely unlikely that I have TB and that it's probably just a virus.  But I like to be sensationalist.

You really don't want TB (but you probably know that already).  Seem to remember a news item a few days ago about it starting to make a come back in some London areas.  Really hope not.

Fingersd are crossed that you just have the same cold as me and it will be better in 2 - 3 weeks.

We'll have to see if the insurance company will cough up for it - but I doubt it...:'(

I wanted to buy a track pump yesterday and Mrs. TKP wouldn't let me, making reference to Christmas presents and it not being a good time to buy something like that. There is nothing track pump shaped in the presents pile though. I'm a bit excited.  ;D

I've just finished lunch, which was disaster bread, smoked salmon, the smelliest brie in the world and some fruit.

The disaster bread was cooked on Christmas Eve. Our bread maker is rather old and its paddle has lost a lot of the non-stick. When the loaf was finished, I turned the bucket upside down and shook. It was stuck more firmly than usual and instead of the loaf coming out whole, the top burst open and all the flake, which had detached itself from the crust, fell out leaving a hollow crust behind.

Watching a programme about University Challenge.

Coming from a very working class background, University Challenge was my only exposure to University as a child. I watched avidly and it was the single thing that allowed a working class girl the belief that there was something better out there than working in the EverReady Battery factory. Unfortunately the programme ended in 1987. I was due to go up in 1988. Still I was the first female member of my family and only the second member of my family to go to University. The first to graduate with a First Class and the first to research a doctorate. So I have a lot to thank the programme for. :)

Have a lovely Birthday Gill, you share a birthday with my Uncle. I'm looking forward to taking him a card, some chocolates and out to lunch. Are you doing anything nice tomorrow?

I'm not looking forward to my birthday as I'm worried that a spiteful ex will try and do something to spoil my day, so I think I'm going into hiding until it is all over. I was going away, but I can't travel due to some treatment I have to have, so I've put my travel date back to the end of the month.  Perhaps - should postpone my birthday to then.

I haz a green yacf jersey or two.  But it weren't me.  I've been in Cambridge, now back in Derby.  And my only cycling has been to/from the bus stop on my Rowing-Club-Coloured brompton.  Due to the fact that I'm making inroads into the EU Snot Mountain.

I recommend everyone goes to see them tonight in Glasgow at King Tut's.  I don't wear proper shoes very often, I tend to stick to trainers, and those boots are quite stiff leather and the skin on my feet is quite soft - apart from the places where now there is no skin, just raw weeping patches.  :sick: Ouch.

House was cold this morning, digital thermostat had a blank display. Hmm. Fitted new batteries, no joy. Found over ride switch, got house tolerably warm. Looked up replacement stats on interweb, saw pricer, felt unwell. Turned off heating, went to Science Museum.

Got home, dissected digital thermostat with trusty Opinel. Found corroded battery contact. Cleaned. Reassembled. The thermostat, she lives, for I am a fettling god.

Sadly SWMBO has gone into one because she's twigged that it is 14%. 

I wouldn't mind but it's only a piddly little bottle and I am only having the one.

A man walked into a bar and asked the barmaid for a double entendre, so she gave him one. (I'm sure this joke has appeared elsewhere on this forum as well as in lots of other places, but there might be someone who hasn't heard it before).

What flavour are the chocolates that you keep in your drawers, m'dear? Do they have pink inside?

Flipping nora.

That remark was totally innocent.  I think I make more mistakes when I am tired.  I have just picked myself up off the floor after laughing, coughing, choking and then doing it all over again.

The chocolates in question are in my bottom drawer, not mine as such but the spare ones that house all the presents, goodies and things time has forgotten.

Honestly chaps...... haven't laughed this much since Tuesday.

Being very disappointed at the expensive meal we just had at the Alma Inn. The meat dishes were (I'm told) all good. The vegetarian penne alla arrabiata (only veggie dish on the menu) was flabby, overcooked and tasteless. My sis and I ate less than half of our meals. We complained and still had to pay (were given a paltry 10 quid gift voucher in compensation). Not recommended at all. Grr.

It's warmed up in Liverpool, so the ice plug in the burst pipe on my balcony gave way.  Instant fountain for me, ruined ceiling for the flat below (hopefully not..)

I've cut a 700 x 23 inner tube, ran it down the main drain and then fixed it over the burst pipe with an arno strap.  It's useful being a cyclist and having bodging bits to hand  ;D

Hopefully this will hold until a plumber can get here tomorrow.  There are at least 6 leaks in the complex, I can see one flat with water cascading down it's windows from the flat above  :o

Feeling a bit enlurgied.  I managed to catch a mild cold/flu over Christmas, and mostly it's just been a slightly rough throat, bit of a cough, and runny nose.   After spending five hours driving across the country today, I've got a bit of a headache now, so I'm mostly just sitting here watching the idiot box, and occasionally being troubled by the cat, who is making sure I'm still here, and not about to bugger off and leave him somewhere strange for two weeks again. ;D

Sitting in a FREEZING house in Brum.  I've just got back.  The house has had two weeks worth of cooling whilst I've been away and although the central heating is now on full bore and all the radiators are red hot, it's refusing to warm up in here.

Yes, insert something meaningless like a set of unused colo(u)r tags into part of the URL that the Board software uses to identify an URL (probably the start of the URL, ie the http:// bit).

The alcohol part was relatively easy. All I did was top persuade myself that I am actively training for racing etc and that alcohol would adversely affect that. It provides a convenient excuse when out "I can't, I'm training" which is far more socially acceptable than "I'm a self righteous teetotaller".

As for smoking, I've never been able to give that up.

If any police officer pulls me over for failing to wear a helmet, their Chief Constable is going to get one helluva snotty letter.

I'm clearly a bicycle thief, since I wear cycling clothes, carry a pannier, and several hundred pounds worth of bike lights, just so I look the part. :-\

Not a lot of money as job-values go.
But a lot of £ to lose if it goes pear-shaped.
Client isa builder.
Builder's often not the the most expedient payers.
You never get the retention monies anyway.
Once got taken for K28 by a builder.

Deciding if I should go back to bed.  

Have been unwell for the past ten to twelve days (have not ridden at all this year).  I've barely slept this week - managed six hours last night which was a great improvement.  I woke up sometime after five then got up after about half an hour of trying to get back to sleep.

So I'm quite tired now and can't decide if I should stay up and go to bed at a normal hour or try and get some more sleep now.

2) Going back to bed. I was as tired when I woke up as I was when I went to bed. I only got up cos I had to go to the post office.

I was examining an Item in Sainsbury's the other day.  On the back of said Item was a sticker, which read something along the lines of "This Item has a security tag.  Please remove it before putting in the microwave".

Sound advice, perhaps, if the Item is a piece of microwave-friendly cookware, but who would buy 28 Weeks Later on DVD, take it home and think "Noes, I shall not yet place this Item in my DVD player.  I need to defrost it first." ???

Killing time due to my own stupidity. We are going out with the local club today and they leave at 9.30am from Garstang, some 35 minutes drive from here. For some inexplicable reason I managed to calculate that we would need to leave here at 8.15am. So the alarm was set for 6.45am, and by 8.05am we were just about ready. That is when Mrs. TKP said, "why are we leaving at 8.15 when it takes 35 minutes and we don't need to be there until 9.30?". Good point Mrs. TKP. So now we have half an hour to kill.

Drinking a cuppa and getting warm by the fire, having recently returned from the local club run, although due to my tardiness we did the B and a half ride cos I couldn't quite keep up the pace!  ::-)

They were very nice and encouraging but on a day like today it didn't seem fair to ask them to wait at the junctions for me so we left them at Inglewhite and met them at the cafe stop. A couple of miles into the return journey when I was tucked nicely into the pack I looked at TKP and realised something was missing.  :o He had managed to leave his helmet at the cafe stop so we left them and went back to collect it. Just as well really because my legs were useless on the way back  :-[

I can float for a short while but hypothermia might mean I am less able to do so than normal.

The road is even more flooded, I had to go out in the 4 x 4.  Tomorrow could be interesting.  My other friend who lives in an old farmhouse opposite is now moving stuff upstairs.

I am going to put my bikes in my bedroom, can't let them get wet. :)

I did the power to weight ratio calc and based on those numbers (and conveniently ignoring bike weight), we come out about the same.

I need to lose some weight!  ;D

I felt quite pushed at the start of our hilly ride tbh, and less so towards the end.  I suspect doing lots of audax has trained endurance much more than power.  I'm hoping to do a bit more work on power this year.

Is this the event that you have stressedover for a while Peli?

If so, well done because you obviously got it right. Also, if it is, now is the time to accept that you have been stressing too much over it. Sit back and take a chill pill or two. Relax sweetie. That is an order.

Suffering from some bizarre tropical disease, I reckon. Large itchy boil on leg, tremor in left arm, tension headache and general lassitude.

Since this kind of crap happens to me on a regular basis I shall do nothing at all about it. Bet I'll be fine tomorrow.

Ohhh, sounds nasty.

I am winding down.  8 hours driving today :-\

A delightful hour in the company of Fuzzy and family and a super sized bag of my favourite chocolates..... Maltesers, thank you :-*



I'm fine again  ;D 
Hope all is OK with you.

Eating a banana and having a quick break.  Took JC to buy some jeans and other bits and bobs.  Car cleaned and light repaired.  Am wading through the mess that is JC's bedroom, glad I had my tetanus shot.  Then off to tackle the accounts and write a very snotty email.

Watching this and laughing. YouTube - Pet Shop Boys What Have I Done To Deserve This Live Brits 1988 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N8nN7Ecrj7E)

I just watched tonight's Brit awards and the Pet Shop Boys got a long service award or some such, and I was so delighted to see that 20 years on Chris Lowe still looks ridiculous on stage. I remember the 1988 performance and the big discussion topic the next day being "what the hell was Chris Lowe wearing?"

I've got up a little early today, since I intend to cycle the Kaffenback (n+1) on my commute, mainly so I know it works on the WARTY!  Inevitably things may well come loose, need adjustment, or rattle, so I need to make sure I've got a few more tools than normal.

The front brake did judder a bit last night when I briefly tried it, but I'm hoping that just needs a bit of bedding in.  The front light will probably need it's pointing adjusted too, but that'll have to wait until this evening.  I think the gears are adjusted alright, but I've never used combined brake and gear levers before, so I expect to change gears every time I need to stop. ;D

I'm re-reading a mailshot from my GP Practice inviting me to help research in to Erectile Dysfunction.

I've now got two things to worry about - blockages when peeing in public and a lack of stiffies.


I didn't realise either was a problem until yesterday. I'm OK on the first one although standing at the checkout queue in Morrisons may not have been the ideal place to  test it out.  The second will have to wait until I get home this evening to be tested - SWMBO has been put on standby.

Thinking about my bed.  JC has a friend staying over, doesn't happen very often.  They are both in JC's bed.  Mr A made them some popcorn, covered in butter and sugar.  Cue much giggling and noise from above.  The room was littered with popcorn, the bed was full of sugar and popcorn, even the shelves, books and under the bed was covered in popcorn.  They said they didn't know how it got there.  I hoovered the bed and gave JC 'the look', they are still giggling and my bedroom is next door.  It might be a very long night.

I want them to have fun but I also need my sleep.  I think that midnight will be a reasonable time for them to turn down the noise.

I'm now in Lakeside. Dez's motherboard is on the blink. He has an 8.40 appointment. This is tedious.

I think Lakeside is actually worse than Bluewater. Bluewater has a kind of macabre theatrical appeal - it reminds me of Close Encounters of the Third Kind, being set in a chalk pit. Lakeside is just an appalling prospect.

Who (what?) is Debbie Does Dallas?

Looking forward to a nice cup of tea after washing two very dirty bikes. I am ashamed of how bad they were. Our drive now boasts a considerable amount of the Fylde coast's farming debris. We get no reward for performing the valuable service of scooping up all the crap from the roads and bringing it home with us. Still, better on the drive than on the bikes.

Wondering if anyone else has the propensity for losing Cateye bike computers as frequently as I do.

I saw one or possibly two, on your desk, amongst the piles of bits and bobs.

I have those two. One of those is for the Thorn solo machine and the other is for the Mercian. It's the one for the tandem which is absent. I recorded today's mileage with the Garmin. I think it's been stolen by the Cateye faerie.

Damn Wiggle being so efficient.
Damn tyre exploding causing the mudguard to blow off.
Damn SKS mudguards for being so fiddly to fit.  Once you get the idea they are simple and precise though.

Soreen bars ?

Are they small malt loafs then?

Resisted the temptation last night - the Soreen lost out to a really nice Rioja.

Packet says "a moist, fruity cereal bar with raisins, rice, malt, oats and wheat."

Just opened one (in the interests of science): initial malt loaf smell pops out of the packet. Softer than many other bars, really fruity and good taste of malt.

I'll have to eat the rest of this bar before the "best before" date - like now while the porridge is preparing.  Follow it with a Ristretto and I should be "hot to trot".  A gentle 7 miles on old railway track should get me to Cafe Rouge just in time for a coffee and croissant. Return in time to lunch on stuffed mushrooms and then veg out in front of tv while Italy trash Wales followed by Ireland v Scotland.

Wearing a thick jumper and a hat as I am now freezing cold after my run.  Mr A locked  me out so I had to climb over the gate at the side.

I tried locking Mrs P out once but she got back in as well.  Can't anybody take a hint these days ?  ;D

Just finioshed laughing at a colleague. He was on a conference call getting more and more frustrated because noone was listening to him. Finally he said "oh my phones on mute". :D

Just spent 4 hours doing a job application form, which while not huge still presented a bit of an obstacle to a dyslexic, supposedly it was supposed to be available online, was it tits as like, the link just took you back to the job description.

City Council IT section - You are pants. >:(

Do you know how much of a struugle it is to fill forms out by hand to a standard that ensures that they do not just get binned as unreadble?

Sitting in a nice pub, trying to stay sober while I await the arrival of a lovely woman.
