With GU13 absolutely blaring in the background.

Or possibly Oakey's 007. CD1, natch.

this a very good plan. shame i'm not going to be there

£15 month. Unlimited adsl. About 16meg. When it works.

Which it doesn't. A lot
£35 for full sky

Tenner for the line rental.

Plus £18/month for unlimited 4G inc tethering through three

Can see the home line getting the boot. Except three significantly slow down their network around 8 every night.

Ed - get back to me after the marathon de sables wink

The plan is to do one more marathon and then do a triathlon eventually leading to an iron man (o'er missus)

You'll cruise a triathlon.

I reckon another 2 years and I'll be iron man ready.

never even saw those. Just saw a video for something called the arctic enema and knew this was for me!

did a cycling trip to majorca last week. Biggest ride was just shy of 100 km with 3100 metres of climbing.

Felt good to be honest. My mate was struggling big time.

about 5.5 hours total.

I reckon mentally that was as tough as a marathon.

Supposed to be doing brightn next year but my knee is giving me a lot of grief.

Also doing tough mudder in october.

Bring it on.

Sports are the the new afterparties imo.

it's all about the bicycle commute back in the shires for me.

Smashing the PBs on strava.

Feeling sweet.

Much more fun than running!

howells 2007 - absolute belter
tyrant 2000 - still one of the best I have ever heard

That's me alright.

And now thanks to my singing I am fighting off hugely rich, blonde girls called Jemima. I'm like a modern day James blunt.

Jokes on you mate.

Not really. I'm on the 1815 from Manchester marvelling at the it consultant who has usedhis phone non stop for 2 hours he must have head cancer by now.

I have seen people saying "but it is nitrogen and oxygen, just like air"

And that is true. Except there is no free oxygen in it. So when you are inhaling lungful after lungful, it is not just the nitrous making you high, but also the lack of oxygen. You may as well change your name to Michael Hutchence.

His voice is like 10 annoying.

2002 wasn't it? I was there

Was boss.

I seemed to recall he played various mixes of Rui Da Silva "Touch me" for 3 hours and swung a big torch around for a while.

A modern genius.

Like I said. Boss

Did my first decent afters that day.

Ouch.

I now work near Exmouth Market, should change my profile..

And yes, Clapham North and Brixton are next door to each other.

Know a couple of people that live round there. It's quite nice. The wilmigton is a nice boozer

lol @ Grant.

No place for Blackberry at any time.

Saying that, I still have the one my client gave me. Absolutely woeul technology altogether.

It's better than the system we have. To get hold of someone you have to page them. Then you have to hope that the phone from which you have just paged them doesn't get an incoming call because then they can't call you back.

If you get bleeped, you try and ring back, and it's engaged. So you go back to what you were doing, only to get bleeped again 35 seconds later, from the same phone, which again is engaged.

They say we can;t use mobiles, which is rubbish, but it doesn't matter because there is no reception anywhere.

What about wifi. Well seeing as it is20th century technology, decent wifi access hasn't quite filtered into the mainstream yet.

I can;t wait to go back to this.

At least they have decent chairs in theatres now.

Apparently some scally wags broke the entrance door to our building in Manchester this morning and this has meant that there were difficulties delivering some new office furniture.

Tough times indeed

Fortunately I'm working from home so I missed all the excitement. I also try not to go to Manchester very often

My mate from uni used to love this poem. It drove us all mad when he would recite it after 2 bottles of wine but for some reason it has stuck

Those long uneven lines
Standing as patiently
As if they were stretched outside
The Oval or Villa Park,
The crowns of hats, the sun
On moustached archaic faces
Grinning as if it were all
An August Bank Holiday lark;

And the shut shops, the bleached
Established names on the sunblinds,
The farthings and sovereigns,
And dark-clothed children at play
Called after kings and queens,
The tin advertisements
For cocoa and twist, and the pubs
Wide open all day--

And the countryside not caring:
The place names all hazed over
With flowering grasses, and fields
Shadowing Domesday lines
Under wheat's restless silence;
The differently-dressed servants
With tiny rooms in huge houses,
The dust behind limousines;

Never such innocence,
Never before or since,
As changed itself to past
Without a word--the men
Leaving the gardens tidy,
The thousands of marriages,
Lasting a little while longer:
Never such innocence again.

Story of my life.

I met a beautiful girl who wasn't crazy and I managed to fuck that one up.

Not sure how many of you would survive the legendary 'afters,' judging by some of the feedback here.

Damo and Mike Miller did a couple of years ago, both put in sensational shifts tbf.


Can damo / mike gauge the level of legendaryness compared to the old days Clapham???

Need a decent comparator.
