Some more…

You Are 60% Boyish and 40% Girlish

You are pretty evenly split down the middle – a total eunuch.
Okay, kidding about the eunuch part. But you do get along with both sexes.
You reject traditional gender roles. However, you don’t actively fight them.
You’re just you. You don’t try to be what people expect you to be.
How Boyish or Girlish Are You?

You Are 12% Abnormal

You are at low risk for being a psychopath. It is unlikely that you have no soul.

You are at low risk for having a borderline personality. It is unlikely that you are a chaotic mess.

You are at low risk for having a narcissistic personality. It is unlikely that you are in love with your own reflection.

You are at low risk for having a social phobia. It is unlikely that you feel most comfortable in your mom’s basement.

You are at low risk for obsessive compulsive disorder. It is unlikely that you are addicted to hand sanitizer.
How Abnormal Are You?



Had a highly communicative day today, and also rather antisocial I suppose, somewhat paradoxically. Such is life when said communication is solely carried out through the vessel of MSN :) it’s been quite weird how everyone’s just converged all at once, and very nice to catch up with so many of my scattered friends, lol.

On the whole though it’s been a very unproductive weekend, mainly due to Saturday being a COMPLETE write-off through hangover. Not good. Managed to go out and get a new suit today though, so will be looking very flash at work tomorrow.

Nothing else exciting to say, really, usual shit :) my fun filled life, hehe. Actually I’m planning a trip to France next weekend – Meribel for 6 days with Whistler peeps, then swinging by Belgium for a few days for a party, chilling and a spot of sightseeing – should be awesome if I can get my shit together and sort out travel arrangements! It should be pretty cheap largely too – there’s an offer of a free room chez Mrs Tim, free transfer, and free accommodation in Belge, so really it’d be rude not to. Am gonna try and sort the travel out tomorrow anyway so will report in.

Right, time to hit the proverbial sack, wouldn’t want to be below my best for the working week ahead.. Heh. X


Went mountain biking with Al on Sunday, he’s bought a 2003 ex-top of the range Norco downhill bike – it’s badass – so we had to go try it out. His purchase also means I can ride his old GT LTS 2000 instead of my oldddskool x-country bike. Bonus.

After some maintenance works on said old bike we headed up to Pope’s wood, near Painswick beacon, for a couple of downhill runs. The ride up seriously nearly killed me – I’ve never ridden UP that hill before cuz it’s crazy steep and long, plus downhill bikes are heavy! When we stopped the first time I thought I was gonna puke from the exertion – turns out I’m even more unfit than I suspected. Damn :p

On reaching the top, I set off and stacked it within 2 seconds. Quite impressive, I think you’ll agree. Locked up the front brake in the wet cuz I was scared of going too fast and the front slid out, so did the second half of the first drop on buttcheeks. Respect. Al blitzed off and I did the rest of the downhill run like a girl :p hahaha.

We hiked it back up again, despite the light failing on us, and went for a second run. Once again I was left trailing in the dust, albeit not quite so severely. Unfortunately I bottled the same section twice – a nasty droppy rooty bit – so an outburst of cursing ensued. Still, we decided to call it a day after that due to the fact that Al mentioned broken bones. Didn’t wanna tempt fate ;)

The run back down the road was pretty fast and helped to remove all the mud from the tyres, instead depositing it on our clothes and skin. Whole thing was a good buzz though, I definitely enjoyed it and the fact that we were exercising instead of sitting around getting fatter just made it all the more worthwhile!
