People must be briefed to pay more attention to those with beards or stubble. The only time I've been ID'd in recent times has been when I've not shaved for about a week. I even got ID'd a couple of years ago when my goatee was a decent length. Want to avoid getting ID'd? Clear your face of pubes.
If it sounds good, listen to it

I grew a beard and instantly stopped getting IDed, even when I was still under 18 :?

My legs are feeling suitably battered from the leg session yesterday. Why has this made me happy? Because last week I didn't feel I pushed myself enough, failing to reach my max on the incline leg press and generally being a bit of a fanny. This week I pushed it, new max weights on most things making me feel good again.

Went to Ginger's Birthday Gig last night, where the Wildhearts were headlining. It was a rather fantastic evening all around. The Ginger Birthday Gig is probably my favourite Christmas tradition at this point!

Going to bed at quarter to 10 last night seems to have done me good (and for once I fell asleep quickly). I can see this morning rather than being too exhausted to open my eyes. Still tired for some reason but that'll shift.

I might not make as many mistakes at work today.

Was handed a purple eyeshadow set and a purple fountain pen by one of my colleagues this morning. She's got a load of the fountain pens from Partners for just 10p each.

Also, my ticket was ordered on Saturday with help from my mum as my computer was being a total arse so I had to call her and give her instructions to order it for me and she's paid for it for now til I get back at the weekend.

Thirdly, the lovely Noodle has offered to give me and the cats a lift back to the Fens on Sunday where I'll be sending christmas with my family.

Managed to pick up all available hours at work... I wonder what the people brought in to replace me will think? From what I gather the workforce has doubled since I left despite no increase in the number of clients.

Also, I finally get to see my best mate for the first time in months this evening.

Rather good, wasn't it. Never been down for one before, but might make a habit of it now

Had a promising meeting with the principal Sport and Exercise lecturer at my old Uni about getting support for my running next year.

I've been invited to come in in January for a two hour assessment where I'll be given a full training plan and lots of other help, whilst also being invited back later in the year for a bio mechanics and nutritional assessment.

I think it helped that the guys' children suffered from Eczema, as he seemed genuinely interested and impressed with what I had planned.

Sweet.
I'm running 1000km (6 Marathons, 26 Half Marathons & 20 10ks) this year so sponsor me ya bastards!

Really need a bit more cash and I may well be able to get some O/T with work. Hopefully they'll allow me to take the piss with it too on the run up to xmas.
