metre reader
Wearing my *very bright* orange and black shirt today, I glanced out the window to see a young man on my front deck with the exact identical shirt except for the words "meter reader" in bold on the back, doing his thing. My first thought was that he had misspelt "metre". I must be writing too much about running.

bolt from the blue
from the Canberra Times: "An elderly man with a heart condition was shocked when a bolt from a Boeing jet flying overhead plunged through the roof of his Sydney home..."
I thought the story might have been about Carlton supporters deserting the club...


no NO, not the doll, the quarter pounder. Symbol of all things fat. The obese species is taking over the world. Fortunately we can out-run them.

2 degrees
That's the latest minimum forecast for Sunday morning. It will be colder than that at the start of the Brindabella run. Good luck.

See you at the track today.


  1. Ha ha ha ha ha - if I wasn't so sure that next year would be the Blues' year, i might be offended!! Ever the optimist, Amanda.

  2. That "bight" was quick. And funnily enough Amanda, it was you I was thinking of when I wrote it. The bit about AFL, that is.

  3. Geoff - i can do 3 interclubs without joining anything, which sounds good, the VETS combined meeting however is really only for the mile and 10k it looks like.

    I'll use up these three later in the season perhaps. I'm still watching the foot and am not in good shape at the moment.

  4. 2 degrees ... brrrr. Hasn't anyone told you guys down there that spring sprung six or seven weeks ago.

  5. LOL love your train of thought on the metre comment

  6. What I don't get is why is it important to say that he's an "elderly man with a heart condition." What does elderly or heart condition have to do with the fact that a piece of aeroplane FELL OFF in mid-flight. Perhaps the maintenance crew were a bit "elderly"...
