    Meh. I have plenty of clean gear, and all I ever wear at home these days is my grubby, oily working-on-the-car gear.

    Problem solved. :D

    I did wonder whether they were on the top road, but couldn't tell for sure! Drink drivers are pricks, no doubt about it. Were they hurt? I kindof hope so, they might learn next time then. :think:

    Well, obviously I hope he's not hurt too bad, but I don't have a lot of time for drink drivers. Some plebs crashed into me and the mrs once and she still has neck/ back problems now 7 years later.

    I dont have much time for drink drivers at all.

    Sadly they never get enough punishment for the pain they cause the familys of the person they crash in to.

    I'm the same, had a friend got done for drink driving twice. Notice the past tense. Can't be friends with anyone with the mentality that finds drink driving acceptable.


    On a lighter note, my Bluetooth Handsfree came today so give me an excuse to tear myself away from Uni work.

    Was going to get to Parrot Mki9200 but never been fond on the seperate remote control and dont really need iPod functionality so I went for the CK3200.

    Wasn't it the old saying that I remember from school (going back now!) - 'Don't drink and drive, smoke a spliff and fly'.

    I have a t shirt from Antigua that says 'Dont drink and drive, Smoke and Fly' with a stoned looking Rasta man cartoon. You just have to say it in a Jamacan Accent.

    I got some old anti-drink driving stickers at home some where that says "steer clear of drink driving" or something like that.


    I just did a 2mile cross country cycle ride round work in 30mins and i'm fecked.
    Soon as I get my phone back i'm going to start tracking my ride round the course and see if i get any better.

    Talking of Bluetooth hands free, mine is built in to the stereo. :)

    If you have an iphone of some sort, the photobucket App is awesome and quick!

    Not too sure if it supports other phone operating systems though?

    As far as I know, he usually has a decent phone Jo, it got dusty so he sent it back for a replacement.

    And axios; You could walk 2 miles in that time :p hehe.

    What bike you got mate? I have a road bike for my commute, but much prefer playing our on my mtb, it's so much more entertaining.

    Yup, Stupid bloody phone. :(

    Your right, I might have been able to but i'm really unfit. lol

    Cannondale F5.
    Bought it last year to cycle to work with, which I did for the summer months but stopped over the winter cause I dont like riding in the wet and cold.
    I brought it in to work to start cycleing again.

    They have their own cross country cycle track they uses for races and events.
    So we play about on thats during dinner time or after work.
    Got some really nice drop offs and jumps.

    Ah, I do like the cannondale bikes! Those single front fork jobbies they do are odd though, i'm sure they're strong, but they just look wrong.

    I am too tight to pay for the bus so cycled pretty much all through winter. Luckily it's all downhill going, so I used to wrap up warm and roll. By the time it's home time I was well up for it.

    I wish here had a cycle track to play on at lunch. You'll have to get some pics for us, sounds fun.

    Half a day tomorrow, so no bike riding. :)

    Balls of steel for sure.
    There is wood down here call cann woods and they have some ramps, dips and jumps made for bikes. I've a tried some dont have the balls to pick up enough speed to get serious height. I get some air and it feels like feet but in the video play back its only 2".

    Holden woods is good. Youtube that. :)

    Thats it, keep rubbing it in. cheaper fuel, better weather, better surf, serounded by V8s and any thing else? :)

    I put for £40 of fuel in the other day 23 litres I think it worked out at.
    It should be at very most £1 PL not this ****.

    REVOLT!!!!

    Our local Shell has ordinary diesel at 139.9 today, so decided to make what I have left in the tank last longer.
