Cake Thursday, New Shoes, Terror on the Roads, Film Review

Filed under: bikes,food/booze,lunacy - mine,work — dgpowell @ 11:46 am

Every thursday at work is Cake Thursday; a day devoted to the build up relating to and eating of cake, instead of doing something more productive.
Everyone involved thought it was an entirely original idea, concieved by me on one of my better days. However a bit of random googling last week brought up a suprise; ladies and gentlemen, i give you cake thursday! Other people doing exactly what we do, same rules and everything! We’ve never been in contact with each other yet came up with almost the exact same principles, how strange?!

In other news, less than 24hrs after i ordered them (and for a bargain price too – less than half the price wiggle et al are selling them for) my new shoes arrived:
new shoes at work
(click for big)
so damn pimp!
as i took this photo my boss squealed
“you can’t put new shoes on the table”,
“it’s bad luck!” she cried
it was bad luck for her, as i threw the box at her for being so f-king stupid

Now a public safety announcement: If you’re near Preston on Saturday AM, stay off the roads, i’ll be driving a car…so thinking about it, stay indoors, preferably in some sort of bomb shelter…

Film Review: Hot Fuzz
i have no idea what it was like, the bloke sat next to me had *the* worst breath ever so i spent the entire time trying to not breathe while facing in the wrong direction.
i did come up with a new patented-dave-idea though; all cinema ticket stubs will come in two halfs, one half will double up as a deodorising body wipe and the other will be a mint flavoured chew. Thus i will never miss another film due to god awful stenches eminating from complete strangers with hygiene issues.


  1. Gold shooz? Crazy!

    I am 300 miles away from Preston at the moment and thankfully will be on Saturday as well 🙂

  3. 300 miles may not be enough…if you hear someone screaming “brake! brake! for gods sake brake!” i’ll be heading your way

    i’m “re”-learning to drive after sacking off lesson for 9 years!

  6. they’re not homo shoes,they’re the shoes the terminator would wear…
    …if the terminator rode bikes
    and terminators aren’t gay, they’re dead hard

  7. Yeah. They’re really muscley, like leather and macho… 😉

    (imagines Terminator in a pink apron and laughs)

    I quite like those shoes, I couldn’t see them on Wiggle though, I’ll be running Specialized for the 2007 season.

  8. wiggle

    but they’re silly cheap at robin hood’s local

    of course, you have no choice over the colour of the ones they send you…and there are some pretty garish ones out there, even compared to the disco silver…

  9. Ah sorry, I read that as you got them from Wiggle.

    Obviously they picked the most Twinkly one’s for you.
