originalpiratematerial - "you're an apprentice, you're not ready to think yet"


Recommended Posts

Hilarious because it started to rain heavily as soon as I'd done a couple of warm-up circuits, so we headed for the bandstand. Which we ended up sharing with (a) a film crew dong an interview about global warming (b ) a homeless guy smoking a spliff © 20 school kids and their teachers trying to find somewhere to eat their sandwiches out of the rain (d) some Canadian tourists (e) a dad with a baby in a sling (f) another bootcamp fitness class consisting of eight people plus their trainer. Sort of more like Dr Who's Tardis than a bandstand.

Unbelievably, there was still room to swing a kettle bell, although I was a little worried about braining the baby.

Sadly I've just stocked up on tampons yet again because despite being 50 there's no end in sight. My BF tells me that this means my biological age is younger than my calendar age and this is A Good Thing. Obviously she's just trying to cheer me up!

arsecakes, that doesn't seem fair at all, it's my trade off for the hot flushes and feeling that the sky is going to fall on my head.

I got rid of some more random stuff from the bathroom today - too boring to list!

I wish the film crew had filmed what was going on around them, it sounds totally hysterical!

We're calling for a blizzard with gusts up to 90km/h this evening, and I've got a ruck planned.

 

RUCK OR DIE... with optional freezing to death!

It's kind of in the style of Nordic Noir. The detective - River - is investigating the murder of his former partner - in both senses of the word - Stevie. Turns out he can still see and hear Stevie - and various other dead people, including a Victorian murderer called Neil Cream. It's beautifully filmed, lots of the bits of London that I (and Scumspawn) know including places where I run.

Ohhh, River, thank you! I'm sat here with a humungous migraine waiting until it is a respectable time to go to sleep - the iPlayer will fill that gap perfectly!

It seems very intriguing. And I must say that the most original shows I've discovered lately were British : misfits, utopia, black mirror... not to mention Sherlock!

Is the show about solving cases with the hero's particular abilities?

What are you lot like!!!

Anyway...

No reading tonight because I've been drinking wine and catching up with the last episode of a very excellent series which Scumspawn might also have seen - called River. Back to the strait and narrow tomorrow.

I thought wine + reading was a good thing. Jury's still out on wine + challenge commenting ;) (that's me, not you) (am always so uncertain with the jokes on the interwebz).

Also, River sounds cool. Thanks :)

Partly. But mainly it's about the relationship between River and Stevie. And her family.

Ok. Found it on the net so I'll give it a go! I'll tell you about it.

Nordic Noir fans here are eagerly anticipating the third series of The Bridge, which starts tonight in the UK. Perhaps appropriately, it's snowing here.

 

Then you're ahead of the Bridge-area, weatherwise. No snow here yet.
