Re: The Book thread

Potato Jim (iirc) said on IRC tonight that mate of his is fostering a guide dog puppy before it goes for training. It reminded me of a book I loved when I was eight or nine, Operation Sandy by Cathie Bartlam. It's about a boy whose family did the same thing. The boy gets too attached to Sandy and pl...

One bloke at work sometimes plugs his phone into the radio for a Sabaton marathon. He fucking loves them. I still don't get the appeal.

I'd rather buy stuff for my bike. :P Almost spent £100 on a Garmin Edge today before common sense kicked in.

Re: What has made you happy today

But a time of 46 minutes for a 10k given the above conditions and an reccurance of an old hip injury is rather pleasing. Howwwwww! It takes me an hour to run 10k when I'm feeling good. I hate being a slow runner :( At my fittest about 15-16 months ago I managed to do 6.7 miles (10.78km) in the Rowl...

Re: What has made you happy today

Having a Welsh shower before going to the shops wasn't a good idea, Lynx is fucking digusting. Had a proper rinse in the shower and feel much better for it before I go out on the bike.

Re: A free-for-all thread

I think I've only been out twice on New Years Eve and I've not really enjoyed either time. But then I couldn't give a toss about celebrations of an arbitrary date on the calendar.

Re: What pissed you off today

This should be in the lol thread. What a cunt. :lol: So not without huge amounts of pressure from Mum, I've put my foot down and I'm not going to my cousin's wedding today. I really don't have the energy for a 120-mile round trip and ten hours of having to be sociable. Some people will be disappoint...

Re: A free-for-all thread

Canada Water isn't it? Better get a bike and save on the Oyster Card!

I pay £400/mth for a large one-bedroom flat and that includes water. The difference in prices is alarming.
