Brevet Brownie Points.
« on: April 01, 2008, 07:09:52 pm »
With PBP having used up so much goodwill in households across Britain, I have been inspired by M Series’ excellent suggestion for added ‘family points’ to come up with ‘Brevet Brownie Points’, just send me the receipts and I will validate. 100 plus points gets a pass-out for LEL.
Trip to IKEA, 5 points, 10 if home delivery is required.
Family Barbecue, 2.5 points, 5 if 3 generations are involved, 10 if 4 generations.
Bathroom or Kitchen renovation, 12 points, 15 if you do the plumbing and it doesn’t leak.
Hard landscaping, 10 points, extra 5 points if you don’t crack any of the Indian Sandstone.
Tree Pruning, 4 points, plus half a point for every Leylandii over 20 feet tackled.
Suggestions for additional counting tasks welcome.

That sounds like a cryptic crossword clue.

So far this year -

Installed new bathroom suite, including plumbing (no visit from the p*n*t*r* fairy yet), replaced bathroom ceiling, fitted new radiator and heated towel rail (no visit from the p*n*t*r* fairy yet) re-decorated bathroom. Fixed split lintel in garage. Cut down 4 large, but unproductive fruit trees, 2 massive uncontrolable laurel trees, fettled Mrs Chris' bikes, fettled YCs bikes, fettled Lewis' bike, fettled Zoes bike.

Should be well on target for a LEL pass!

I was tinkering with the idea of points for 'erotic diligence'. All those early Sunday starts being an impediment in that regard. But I remembered the wife of a 24 hour rider who seemed to relish the peace of her husband's previous 6 months of erectile dysfunction, so much so that she was now encouraging him to go for the club record. (for the 24  not ED, well I assumed so anyway.) Anyway we can't assume that such diligence is always welcome and partners might just prefer a lie-in.
