After two marathons I fell out of love with running, I basically got bored. I was encouraged to enter the London Triathlon Sprint and have started enjoying training once again. Stairs at work have become a struggle once more.

Two massive projects

OK, I'm back in the marathon, a thing, like Tough Guy that I sign up for and then don't worry about until the time is actually upon me and I have to run around in the cold/mud. So I'm not too worried about that, the training starts AFTER Christmas!

However, the other project I have just started is writing my thesis. Now this is a project that I am worried about. I'm not the world's best writer, punctuator, grammariser or speller, (Absolutely definitely and complete all mistakes = (sic)) so this something that really fills me with dread like no other. However, when I started runing I couldn't do anyhting and would have been unable to do a marathon. So I guess it's just doing that gets you good (or gooder!). The one problem is, that this time, my first attempt at the task/discipline must be great and perfect and that my first attempt this time is acctually the marathon!!!

Buggerin' heck

Football league, your having a laugh :-(

Did anyone see me on the telly on Monday? I was one of 30,000 people and Bramall Lane on Monday night watching The Blades v Villa. If you've videod it, I was the one on the righthand side of the away stand that was completely pissed after being on a work Christmas do and annoying his girlfriend.

Accommodation required. 22 April 2007

Oh no. And so it begins again. Cold and Wet. Tired and Grouchy. 400g of Pasta in one meal. Horrible Conduit Road training sessions. Shredded Bloody Wheat in the mornings. Ark, I'm in the marathon again. Unfortunately it's just me. Phil and Kay didn't get in this time. They're gonna go shopping in London and buy me presents. This time I think we are gonna do more than a long weekend if that is ok with our Southern lodgings.

P.S. Dale are bobbins, bum and bobar.

P.P.S Kay's Choir are on the telly tomorrow before their concert around 6:30pm. This should link to the latest edition of Look North but if that doesn't work try BBC South Yorkshire and click on "Latest edition" on the right hand side

Wayne's World: The new Shakespeare?

Wayne's World: The new Shakespeare?

Ok. Before you ask "Are you mental?" bear with me, there is "Method in the madness". Kay and I watched the great film last night even after my ugh and args (I'm rubbish at watching stuff I haven't seen for ages because I just forget how funny it is) and we had a discussion about how Wayne's World had influenced and provided many phrases of the mid-late '90s that are still used today but their origins have been forgotten. I had a good think about this and I thought not many people realise this and it got me thinking further. Do I/did I say things that are directly from or evolved from quotations from Wayne’s World. Ok, so this is where the link comes in. Old Shakey. Well, I went through High school and was bored in English lessons, “read” Romeo and Juliet (I got the gist from Dire Straights) and watched the little plasticine cartoon of the Tempest. It was Dull. Yawn. Bored, I want to go a look at the girls boobs. I never wanted to see/read any of the bobbar (trans. From Sheffieldian: Bobbins (trans. From Lancs: Shit) that the Beardy Bard created. However when I was dragged to see my first Shakespeare as an adult (A Comedy of Errors) I was shocked about the number of phrases which have been spurned from the Bard and also the fact that I actually laughed my ass off.

Now you may think that, I am mental and that relating Wayne's World to the greatest scribe the world has ever created but I believe they are bedfellows, "Strange bedfellows" but bedfellows nonetheless.

Just think, do you now or have you in the past quoted Wayne’s World just like you quote Stratford’s baldest son without realizing it. Think (sorry it’s a lot of thinking) back to the mid-nineties how many times have you been asked "asphinctersayswhat", now it is a “Foregone conclusion” that you will have been asked this at some point and now, yes, this joke may have “Seen better days” but it certainly was funny a the time, well to boys anyway. Now you many think that this post may have “the makings of” waste of your time but that "T’is neither here nor there.". Now, admit it, you will, I’m sure, have told someone that “We're not worthy! We're not worthy” or in some shape or form have said “It will be mine. Oh yes. It will be mine”. “Ex-squeeze me? am I wrong? Nope, I didn’t think so, when asked what your take away order is you have said "cream of sum yung guy". This one may just be me but, you must have said “If she were a president she would be Baberaham Lincoln” and surely you have Schwiiiiiiiing-ed a lady (or man) or two in your time.

See you’ve done it haven’t you you’ve gone “Full Circle” you agree with me. Wayne’s World is like Shakespeare “NOT” J.

Now go and quote Wayne’s World and also realize how much that oldie worldie beardie fella has affected you vocabulary. Do that, and “the world’s your oyster

Right I’m bored now and this post is a bit of “a sorry sight” and may have ruined “A spotless reputation” in “One fell swoop

A famous(ish) man (woman, if you want to be pedantic; Rosalind in As you like it.) once said “Can one desire too much of a good thing”. Probably, but anyway here are the rest of the phrases that I found when researching this little post. Yes I’m a saddo.

Eaten out of house and home
Pomp and circumstance
Neither rhyme nor reason
Wild goose chase
Shuffle off this mortal coil
The lady doth protest too much, methinks
Neither a borrower nor a lender be
What 's done is done
The game is up.
The course of true love never did run smooth
The green-eyed monster
In a pickle
Tower of strength
Play fast and loose
Party on Wayne.

Lost Readership

Hello guys, sorry I've been away so long. I'd almost forgotten how to sign in. I thought I'd say hello and decribe the stinker I had today. I play in an intramural team and we got spanked and I was the goal keeper. 5-3. Boo Hoo. I don't think I actually did that badly but I did make an absolute howler when the ball squiggly squirmed just underneath me. sigh. I think I might play outfield next week as our lot were very much old men compared the the running around stundets peppering my goal with shots!!!! I did make a few saves that I was pleased with but letting in 5 after rochdales weekend was not something I wanted to do. Anyway home time now (I'm at work).

Bye maybe I write a better post tomorrow but I least I'm back onthe waggon.
