    Sketchy ride with even sketchier riders makes for more hilarious stories to tell at the pub. Life is fucking good
    Rest in Peace

    Job interviews; I'm not sure what it is but those moments that most others fear or feel uncomfortable with, I relish and enjoy them. Much like in a working environment when nothing is going right and everyone is losing their shit, I tend to become calm, the more out of control the situation the calmer I become.

    Bizarre.

    I enjoy job interviews. I'm 3 for 4 over the last 10 years. Only one I didn't land was a sideways move within my current company.
    Turned out to be not such a good opportunity after all so I'm glad I missed it.

    In 35 years of working life Iíve one had three job interviews.
    First was for my apprenticeship in the pub, second was when I was already at the pub and happened to bump into someone and the third was whilst suffering from being at too long at the pub the night before.
    God I miss job interviews.

    I'm no carpenter, and I don't measure for shit (so the measure twice, cut once credo doesn't factor with my impatience), but some satisfaction to be had for some impulsive building projects about the house.

    Exhibit A is a full width desk to replace the Frankenstein shite that inhabited my home office. Left-overs made a monitor surround/shelf and a printer stand.

    Exhibit B is a day-bed/window seat/speaker stand/shelf that converts into a chaise lounge.

    Man, I love plywood The best part is that most of the wood apart from the ply panels was from the free off-cuts bin at Bunnings.

    Plywood is the ducks nuts.

    Now that you can get WBP instead of Marine Grade its way cheaper and still suitable for outside too. Stain that bad boy up and it looks legit.

    Never been a big fan of wood-stain, and I like the Scandinavian simplicity of the natural ply, so I have just applied a few coats of Tung Oil based finish to harden and seal the surface - which also deepens the hue a little

    It's a great place to chill and listen to music with the sub sitting at one end and one of the bookshelf speakers at the other. The ply is thick enough not to resonate but still lets the bass come through as a bit of a kick in the belly

    Yup, I went out for a ride with a friend through Kalamunda. I don't really ride for the hell of it any more. Was a lovely ride and good company. Weather perfect too.

    in japan now, first time riding in proper ice/snow conditions for last couple days. had a lay down a few times myself on an old spada.
    These cunts telepathically threshold brake on frozen calipers and all. I honestly don't know how they generate traction in some places.

    A lot of trial and error. With long winters, you get a lot of practice when your bike is the only form of transport...15 years of winter riding and I got pretty good on black ice as well. All that practice is gone now mind you...

    it's has been sunny for last few days but -10 -> -2 so snow all melts and refreezes for a nice skating rink feel where theres no 4x4's/trucks to churn it up no spikes or any similar nonsense on bikes, just tyres that remind me of the pirelli race wets

    Epicly binned it today at about 60 following a bloke who is a local postie. Positive is you just end up buried in the pile on side of road and get warm digging your shit out
    We've got about 50cm of snow due in the next 24 hours which i'm told will present me with a whole new set of problems

    must say, this whole country rocks though for driving/riding, everyone speeds everywhere a good 20/30+ but to conditions, zero hairdryers/speed cameras, zero tailgaiting/red light runners/rage/etc. So courteous an attitude that I witnessed a comical standoff today between a taxi and a bus, both insisting they must give way to each other
    Haven't really hooned around Tokyo, but the more regional roads I'd say its on par if not better than mainland europe

    Yup. Tramping boots with hob nails and side cleats were my choice.
    Didnít do much for the foot peg rubbers.
    I needed something with some durability since the ride either to and from school, some 83 miles each way often consisted of having to have your feet on the deck for quite a bit of that mileage.
    Powder snow is great. Ice sucks!
    Iíd get home a lot of evenings during the winter and do laps through the pub car parks and each time I went under the main enterance I would be on the horn until Dad would come out and catch the bike. Basically frozen solid.

    I just realised something.

    I donít miss that shit at all.

    GTIL - Walking out of work next to a colleague I've never met, kitted up for the ride home and she comments on the safety of my boots/gear, me replying depending on what happens it can go both ways and then her opening up how she fears for her son (37) who is getting his license and there's been a bit of tension when she reminds him of the dangers etc.

    Spent about 15 minutes chatting about him needing good lessons, available groups and rides, rider self responsibility and supporting people who ride and sharing their joy because we know the dangers, as well as the advances of technology making it a bit safer (haha).

    We parted with her thanking me and saying she felt a bit better now which felt OK.

    Food Gtil.
    This might have been a thing for ages ...who knows?
    Smashed a fruit smoothie in the Bullit ..added natural yogurt. .didn't give it a second thought.....couldn't drink it ..so, sat in FRIDGE overnight.
    Next morning yogurt so thick you need to eat it with a spoon!!!!!!
    OR hold upside down to test consistency...ha hhaa
    It'd work with mayo, too... so here comes 'Thousand Island dressing' yogurt...Ranch etc etc...

    GTIL - after rushing in to purchase my first bike without knowing shit about anything I was getting concerned about the condition of the bike.

    Had it's first service and the verdict is she's in good shape. I'm feeling heaps better now.

    Yippee! No expensive repairs.. let the good time roll!
