Hello meerkat :) I've placed an order for the VCR, and hope to have it delivered to me later this evening.

JJ - you're wearing a suit? Swooon......

Piglet. You off to see JT? He's doing some concerts in late spring. Me and Mrs will probably go and see him in Sheffield?
28/01/2003 at 15:46
JJ - Is it your birthday now???

Chimp - Many thanks for the tip - I hadn't realised he was due, and I'd certainly like to see him. Just been over to the website and I see that there's not a great deal of choice. No Manchester? I'll probably aim for Sheffield. Thanks again :)

You're right JJ. Just didn't want to get too technical. Skunks are only very distant cousins, although their outer wear is very classy.
Hope the VCR eases the snout, WP.

Hey, JJ - you sound like an extremely snappy dresser! I particularly like the sound of your pale yellow shirt :) What's up with the tie, though? I thought you besuited blokes used ties and socks as an opportunity for a bit of wild self expression? (Waistcoat linings too, of course!)

Knickers, though? Hmmm... Did you realise that Helly Hansen make wicking briefs? Terrifying, eh? They have them in my local running shop right next to the counter, and I confess that they fascinate me... whenever I see them I think of the knicker thread....
28/01/2003 at 15:56
Mens or womens wicking briefs, WP?
28/01/2003 at 16:03
I think they must be men's, Meerkat - I haven't dared take them out of the box for a closer inspection, but that's how they look on the little drawing...
28/01/2003 at 16:23
I was going to say something smutty about wicking - but I'm brought up short by your being a virgo, JJ. I lived with one of those once - he was a perfectionist and insisted on doing my washing. Also seemed to be capable of living on 50p a week. Tell me you're not like that...
Anyway, WP, about this picture on the box...
28/01/2003 at 16:57
Phew, that's a relief. I think WP should obtain, by any means, said picture, so that we can compare and contrast.
28/01/2003 at 17:07
I'll see what I can do, meerkat. Thing is, though, that it was an awfully big picture - there was something on the box about "anatomically to scale" - and for the second time this afternoon I'm left wondering whether it will fit into this little box.

However, I will certainly try :)
28/01/2003 at 17:16
Stop it, Piglet. Everyone in the office is wondering why I'm choking over my pc.
Ahem. Calm down. Now - could you borrow the picture on the grounds that you have to check certain anatomical dimensions vis a vis size of boxes and wicking conditions?
28/01/2003 at 17:23
hee hee hee :-)

Ok, I'll make enquiries at the running shop...
28/01/2003 at 20:41
I hope that wasn't the waist band on those Helly Hansen wicking briefs, JJ...
28/01/2003 at 20:54
Thanks for the laugh, and hello.
Glenn, I took my cue from you re pics. I thought if you could look 17 again, then I could look 16 again. And if you don't say anything, then I won't either...

Meerkat - many thanks for the recommendation, I've just trekked my way for three hours (!) each way to see the man with the video who draws lines on the back of ladies legs, expensive, but I feel as if I'm finally making progress.

JJ, happy un-birthday, and I'm glad to hear your famile keep you 'suit'ably attired. Only thing I know about Virgos is that they make good bus drivers but can't remember why now.

Glenn, is your new job in Hemel?
28/01/2003 at 20:54
And hello to Piglet and Chimp as well, but no sneezing!
28/01/2003 at 21:03
Hello Helen :)

<Wee Piglet stands carefully with little cotton snout bag at the ready, in case of sudden SNEEZEs!!!!!>

Hello JJ,

I've seen nothing of the monkey for many hours now. I think he must be feathering his den, or whatever it is that Chimps do in the long winter evenings.

My excuse for buying a camera is to take piccies of all the beautiful things I see on my long w/e runs, and in particular the wonderful toadstools! There was also a stunning hoar frost about a month ago, and a small flock of attractive Herdwick sheep has insinuated itself into the sand dunes. All these things need careful logging.

That's my excuse, anyway... hehe heh

Helen Wheels is a rather catchy little number by Paul McCartney - you may have heard of him.

Wee P, thank you so much for your consideration. Do echinacea and Vit C work on piglets?

JJ you are right, it's that snake oil...
28/01/2003 at 21:16
WP, did you get the Fuji?
28/01/2003 at 21:25

I did get the Fuji, but I've not had much chance to use it so far. I'm still not sure how I'm going to carry it on long runs, but I'm thinking of taking it in a sort of personal stereo carrier thingy I got last year. Sigh... life is so complicated! ;)

Echinacea and vitamin C are said to work well for piglets, but I have difficulty getting hold of them because when I go into the chemist and ask about them the staff tend to run away.

Night all
