Tuesday
... is too early to talk about the weekend so instead, something different.

I'm in a bit of an odd mood at the moment - I've been out for 24 hours at a procurement workshop where I managed to stay on my best behaviour for the first half, then drunk some wine with the VC of UCE and it went downhill. This morning I was saying what I thought.

I've also spent about £400 on two pairs of shoes. As I'm not a girl this is big news. Actually, most girls I know would probably take it seriously too. I'm a bit concerned about owning any footwear called Hot Rod Top Fuel though - sounds more like, well, I'll let you use your imagination.

While I try and get down to work - I've found a wonderful advert on MySpack for a personal trainer where they spend their time "... constantly re-educating our staff to ensure you get the best service possible". I wonder if it's a pleasant experience, or they'd be better off with some training.

I'm curious... what did you say? (Suspect Dan will be curious too.)

It was just small talk really - but he was very amusing with his tales. I'm not sure I'd want to work for him though. Plus he seems to have a thing against Excel.

I'm just curious to see pictures of the footwear. Does this make me shallow?

Those aren't shoes. They're clearly boots, or at most footwear. Hmph.

I am the kind of man where if it goes on your foot - it's close enough to being a shoe that it's splitting hairs to go any further.

The other pair were:

Coo, they look lovely. Well done. :) Do they have 4x4 written on them?

Alas not... I also decided not to get the Gore Tex ones as last time having "waterproof outers" would not have helped during the submergence phase of the race.

You're right, they'd be like running in wellies. We are too extreme for normal shoes us!
Nice new boots too...

Lovely eh!

Now I have to work out what else I need to buy to co-ordinate...

Red things. Clearly. :) Or perhaps green, for a Chrismas tree effect. Or brown, for an inverted Rudolph effect.

My current ski boots are dark-blue-ish with orange decals so I've come to the conclusion that really they were all designed by colour blind gnomes.

The rest of my gear is black (of course) and my skis yellow/red/white so I'll just cope I think. Plus the fact the credit card would not take it.
