“I want to ride my bicycle”

October 4, 2007 at 9:48 pm (Moans & Groans)


Ok so I nearly got crushed by a bus today! I was happily cycling along Рminding my own business and doing my bit for the environment when this behemoth bus comes speeding past me inches away from my handlebars! I was soooo scared it took considerable self control not to dive into the hedge for safety!!

Not only did it scare the bee-jeezus out of me but then it pulled straight in front of me to get into the ‘bus stop’ and I nearly went up the back of it … which would have been seriously more detrimental to me than the bus! I’m sure I would have hardly made a dent, cept for in my nose!

Ok, so I know that everyone complains about bikes on the road (even I do when I’m driving) but at least I have the courtesy to give them enough space – though I drive a mini which is hardly all that scary looking especially since it’s decorated with butterfly decals! ūüôā


I’m getting really tired off nearly being flattened by¬†people who drive like the four horsemen of the¬†Apocalypse are on their tails! In fact I’ve started cycling as close to the centre line as I dare just so that they have to give me a wide berth! Ha, take that you silly people who can’t read the green cross code!

Rain rain go away

August 15, 2007 at 5:35 pm (Me, Moans & Groans)


Eurgh, I can’t believe its raining … again. Two weeks of sunshine and now this! Grrr…. I had to walk home from the cafe today just when a huge torrential shower started … yup I have the greatest timing ever!!

*Pouts* I had a teeny little umbrella (you know, one of those “fits in your handbag” style ones) and so you can imagine that I was soaked through by the time I got home. All is well again though because I’ve had a nice big mug of tea and some dark chocolate digestives… yum!

Hmmm…. I’ve just realised how random this post is … oh well never mind….

Ooooooh yeah, I’ve just seen a preview on the net for Stargate Atlantis season 4 and it looks amazing!! Yay… oooo can’t wait till September!

Dude, I just found a marzipan bar – my day is now officially made, hell it can snow now for all I care … sweet sweet chocolate and marzipan!! mmmmmmmmmmm….

Public Transport

May 25, 2007 at 6:11 pm (Moans & Groans)


What is it about public transport that attracts wierdos? Is it like some secret mecha for those with no agenda?

Seriously, you either end up sat next to a burberry enveloped kid nervously and rather suspiciously wiping at his nose or sitting next to an old bag lady who smells like she died and nobody thought to clean up the rotting corpse!

Take today for instance, it’s 7:15 in the morning – (my oh so favourite time of day) and our regular bus driver has been swapped with this guy who looks like a dirty old tramp, on his better days! This delightfully hobbo-esque gentleman is also creepy … I mean the kind of creepy that is mentally choosing which knife would work best to evicerate you and remove your fingers and toes! *shiver*

Now it’s getting warm so naturally the skirts and ballet pumps have come out of the back of the cupboard and now the last two times I’ve gotten on the bus the driver has looked at my shoes and muttered to himself, “nice shoes” in this dark little Kevin Spacey voice. Ok, so it’s an innocent enough comment but the thing is that I don’t think he’s actually addressing me when he says it! It’s like some demonic shoe fetish voice that escapes¬†…. creeeeeepy!

Hmmmm… I might try wearing bin-bags over my feet next time, see what he says then!
