t of britain

who is excited for the tour of britain?  me me me me! 

well, it isn't really cause i care that much about the results, i will be honest....  it is cause i got a phone message from the rock racing guy, who said that he was going to see michael during the tour of britain to tell him about keirin cut.

what i really wish, though, if i could be a fly on the wall during that conversation. will the guy present the idea seriously? what will michael ball's reaction be?  will they talk about it over shephard's pie?  tea and biscuits?  

hmmm, these are all interesting things to contemplate as i go to sleep.

Steak and kidney pie, no doubt, will be the meal of choice for the conversation ;-)

Hope you slept well after you geezer podium girl gig.

Ha! Stereotypical british foods, eh?
We'll I had toad-in-the-hole tonight... after watching the ToB - up close and personal on the streets of London.

Nope, I didn't see Michael Ball but I did see Tyler Hamilton and the rst of the team. So I put in a word about your idea. Not sure if they heard me at 40mph?

Unfortunately, the London stage of the Tour of Britain was cancelled because of a thick "pea-souper" fog, which meant that the horse-drawn team carriages were unable to follow the peloton. Thankfully, everyone was treated to a fish-and-chip supper, with warm beer and entertainment from dancing chimney sweeps.

Just found out I've been measuring my quads at the wrong bit -- they're actually 63 cm at the widest. That feels much better. Must go now, I've got some jellied eels on the stove.

good luck with the jeans! I'll be in line to buy at least 2 pairs if this goes through!

can't wait to hear about the keirin cut jeans response. I can feel Michael Ball thinking about it right now.

Did you see the huge can of Cytomax that Karla won at Benicia? I wonder if it's bigger around than your quads.
