Funny you bring this up... I was about to post something similar.

Along the coast line here in the Los Angeles area we are lucky enough to have a fantastic designated bike path that runs for approximately 20 miles along the beaches. These paths are clearly marked as bike paths and even have stick man bikes painted on the concrete periodically along them.

Inevitably every Saturday (the day I want to ride my bike along these paths) there is some sort of charity 5K, 10K, half marathon etc, that the organizers seem to think the bike path is perfect for.

Case in point this morning. I wouldn't mind if they ran in single file, but no they have to run/jog 4 or 5 across taking up most of the path.

I always put their spacial awareness issues down to lack of oxygen getting to their brains when they are running.

It seems to me that just saying "yes" is much less laborious than stating grandiose and impossible percentages. One mullion percent is like, so last year. Totes.

I stood in for my boss at meetings the last 2 weeks while she was out of town on business. From day one I was getting pounded on for information and updates like the **** I would know! Got the hang of it by the last day, but still no fun.

The big boss asking question has a habit of locking in eye contact with you and asking a rhetorical question... A couple of times I muddled through a response, but not actually sure if I was supposed to.

All very annoying and glad to not be doing that again any time soon.

I blame my South London accent and the fact I was pretty dim at school (some may say still am), but I was into my 20's before I found out "chimney" was not "chimley", and I also thought it was "hand gliding" not "hang gliding", not that we did a lot of "hang gliding" in Croydon or Bromley!

You sure it wasn't 'chimbley'?

I think we alter words a little to make them easier to say (surely it's 'hambag', unless you're Lady Brackell?), so I'm surprised you thought it was 'hand gliding': bit of a mouthful that, 'hangliding' is much easier.

I feel your pain. When my children were smaller I'd have to add lib sections of the 'Owl that was afraid of the dark', other children's books are available, they never noticed. Then we got them night lights with torches attached.

I think there's some truth in that.

For many years I managed to convince myself that there was a real terrorist threat from the Provincial IRA, that is the branch of the IRA that was centred on the Province of Ulster.

This was despite continually reading about the Provisional IRA.

I do the same but the most annoying thing is that once in a while someone you are speaking to will all but stop the conversation to repeat the offending word in their own slightly exaggerated perceived annunciation as some sort put down. Hands in pockets time to stop my fist (no 'th') permanently altering the way they talk!

Bus Lanes

- Not enough buses run to warrant them.
- They cause more traffic issues then they solve.
- The varying different DAYS and times you cannot use them - that changes from one bus lane to the next.
- The cameras that get you nicked when you just cut across the end corner to join the regular road again.

I bought that album when it came out, and still have the four prints that came with it - sells for about Ł300 now.
