Dear Mr New Milkman,

It's bugger all use to 90% of people to deliver your milk at gone half nine in the morning on what will be the hottest day of the year.

The previous guy used to deliver in the dead of night AND he was still cheery.

So why are you so crap and grumpy ? I'm going to have to cancel and I suspect most of your other customers will too.

Its not rocket science is it ? Deliver the milk BEFORE people leave for work ?

My earlier post, "Marion Bartolli at Wimbledon. Top 15 player. QF of US Open last year. Quite fat."

...and Wimbledon champion. So I can just go f*ck myself.

Although it does give the rest of us that are "carrying a bit of extra timber" a bit of hope.

but it is womens tennis though...
Yesterday proved why they deserve the same as the men. Maybe next year they'll just have a WImbledon singles (mixed) event, but with twice the prize money. Seems fair to me.

I'm not on FB so I can't update my status to "step grandmother"

Not checked the forecast but since the beginning of the year it has blown pretty much consistently from the north so the likelihood is that they'll be into a head wind for most of the day. When they hit the coast at Cancale (a pretty little fishing village with some really good sea food restaurants) they turn and head west so there is a chance that there may be some cross winds. Looking out of the kitchen window the turbines are fairly whizzing round at the moment but it could, of course, drop overnight.

Although they'll be passing a mere 25kms to the east of my place, I haven't actually ridden the roads they'll be taking for a while so I went for a gentle spin earlier today to check out some of the route.  www.d2ride.co.uk

I did the climb though the forest of Paimpont on one of my first rides with the local club and I remember arriving at the top purple-faced and panting from the effort of trying to keep up with the local grimpeurs. Surely that ought to be worthy of categorisation I thought to myself.  Sadly, my memory was clearly playing tricks.  The sad reality is that it is a steady 2.5km drag with a maximum gradient of maybe 6% for a few hundred metres.

The area around Pampont forest is quite beautiful by the way. Paimpont Forest is supposedly King Arthur's realm Brocéliande.

Oh, and St Meen Le Grand is the birthplace of 3 time TDF winner Louison Bobet and home to a museum dedicated to him. The race will go right by the museum. There was some kind of function going on there today or I might well have gone in to take a look. Despite living just down the road all this time and passing it on numerous rides, I've still never managed to check it out.

You should, we did a few weeks back after an excellent lunch in Cancale

Dear boss,

Actually, that's just not f*cking good enough!

Dear New-ish Poster,  Please don't spam with a link to your business and blog.

I know I don't have to look at it, but it is not in the spirit of the thread, and your post is hardly in the category of things you can't say, so it looks like you've just picked a thread to spam!

Just saying "that's weird" to every thing you don't understand doesn't make it weird. I don't understand how you got into the position you're in, but I don't think it's weird. It's a mistake, but not weird.

mumford and sons - if there is a worse band in the history of music I am fortunate enough not to have heard them


and following on from Wilkie - FB 'friends' please don't post links to inane blogs of your friends/family/associates. If I want to read pointless drivel I'll pick up the Daily Mail.

I'm not too sure basing a political view on the plot of a Johnny English film is a good idea. It's even less of a good idea to actually say it out loud.

Is it really necessary to sneer at someone else's achievement, just because it's lesser than your own? Does it make you feel good about yourself? Because it made me feel like crap. And in the context of everything else, I could really have done without it.

Dear Feckwit,

Some of us that used to work with you have been wondering for a few years now how you managed to reach your current position.

And now, it turns out, your new team have been complaining about you - not by name but we all know.

This is very satisfying and long overdue...

Men. Stop wearing vests, unless its a running vest. And while i'm here, stop driving with no top on.

Lets stay classy..

10/07/2013 at 16:52

Very nicely put Simon 

 

So, Mr. Pietersen, 14 runs. I reckon you've got to do a lot more than that to justfiy your place in the team matey

lets stop using terms like lsr, tempo, threshold, fartlek and race to describe runs that are all of the exactly intensity. Simply saying 'A run' would sum each effort up nicely and also be much more honest to yourself. Oh and constantly running at the same pace is the reason that you are on a long term plateau!

Dear well meaning soon to be ex colleagues (again)  -  I really do appreciate your kindness and sympathy for my future jobless state at the end of next week but really?  Are you seriously sure that that something will 'turn up'?  Have you been listening to the news?

(Sigh)

Bookie, I've been living with someone for the last week who has that mentality.  I am scum because I don't have the drive to 'win' every training session and he is making sure tht I know that.

But it is having the opposite effect.  He is saying these things because he is insecure and he has to beef himself up to feel worthy.  He sees me and my mediocre swimming as a threat and of that I am very proud   Its a compliment in disguise.
