LOVE FOOD, LIVE FOODIE:
My joke of the day - and the only joke i will ever be involved in that may be deemed funny.
Or it was one of those where 'you had to be there'.
Guy at work asks everyone
"If you had to sit on another row of desks where would you sit?"
Silence for a minute, then I said
" I would work from home"
This will be the first and last time i get a whole room laughing at my joke. Therefore i had to blog it.
JUMP - OFF
That is the summary of my weekend.
The way it started it seemed like that wasn't on the horizon. Payday drinks started with two pints and ended soon after; curled up in bed at 10:30. Am I getting old? Can I no longer handle drinks or am i just really boring?
Answers on a blog page please.
I had burgers two days in a row. I'm starting to become a burger expert with all these visits. Friday I went to Patty & Bun ( which you can read about on my food page) and on Saturday I went to Honest Burger, both were lovely and that is all you need to know.
I had arranged to meet up with a friend for a drink so after a lovely meal with the missus, we went to the local to catch up and Drink. The boys were up for more so we took the lady home and went to a different local. I'm not a heavy drinker, I'm a stupid drinker and that led to JD and coke for me. It was a good night and good to catch up with friends and the drinks were alright too. I ended the night with some painkillers and water to ensure that the hangover wasn't evident this morning and thankfully it worked. I don't mind being sick but having a throbbing headache is no fun at all. Maybe that is why the Dryathalon has been so popular.
Not much else to report on so see you soon. As you've noticed my posts aren't at a set time or set subject. So until next time. JUMP OFF
That is the summary of my week. Since my rant last week, not much else has happened besides a lot of snow and the re-introduction of my annual 4 month cough. A change in weather and the annoying cough starts - this goes from a dry tickly cough once every few minutes to a full blown wheezy sensation right in the face of anyone i am talking to ( you have been warned).
Snow, i like it and it is good to see but it can be annoying. I am not a grumpy old man and although i didn't make any snowmen (or snow dogs) this year I will be ready next year and a snow fight is needed to. This year i was happy just wandering in the snow in my red tracksuits and make snow balls and missing the targets of the bin and various buildings.
The slight headache on Sunday didn't help me with my snowball throwing or happy attitude and this is something else that has happened in 2013. HANGOVERS. When will i learn, when will we ever learn? My brother has recommended the Paracetomal trick before sleeping , i tried this once and it worked. I just need to remember this on a night out.
My round up and nothing new and nothing great. Gangnam style now has 1,222bn views- amazing. Liverpool won a football game which involved Daniel Sturridge scoring, safe to say I am winning my bet. And most importantly I have updated my blog.
Next week my aim for the week is to get paid, bring on pay day. JUMP-OFF!
Good luck to all who are raising money for good causes.
Okay, well wishing over.
I'm all for raising money but those that are marking the new year with this dryathalon are looking for excuses. This seems like those that regretted a few decisions in 2012 and over the holidays think that by not drinking everything will be okay.
I tried this once ages ago and I didn't a achieve anything by it. The first day back drinking I got really drunk and felt really rough the next day. The one advantage was saving money and for those doing it now, save money and make sure you buy your boyfriend or girlfriend something nice for valentines.
For those that think drink is the cause of regrets must realise that it is not alcohols fault. The mistake/regret wasn't caused by drink; the alcohol just gave you the confidence to do what you already wanted to do. Like when people go on diets, don't be extreme, it is all about a balance. Just don't eat too much you fat s!&t.
I will donate at least £30 for those not drinking but please do not act like it is a great sacrifice or that you are all high and mighty. Good luck and we will discuss any issues you have that led you to think that drinking is evil in February.
The results are in: the hair makes zero difference. This experiment has been a waste of my time and yours. My times were exactly the same.
My highlight is also the lowest point in this blog, and that is the WIG.
On Friday I'm going to do the Fellaini experiment and that is a test of speed.
The test will be to see how fast I can run with or without the hair.
So at work we have ordered a big wig like Fellaini. To test the impact of the hair I will be doing two sprints of 20metres, one with the wig and one without.
Please comment and let me know what you think the results will be and how much difference there will be.
