Tasks to do

Tuesday, June 17th, 2008

Get some coolant for my motorbike. Put the coolant in to my motorbike's system.

Summer jumper

Tuesday, June 10th, 2008

With hot weather upon us now I am trying a new strategy to cope with the often stupidly cold office. I don't think I should be wrapping up warm to work in a normal office environment, but wearing a t-shirt seems out of the question when I get chills ...

A couple of updates

Monday, June 2nd, 2008

I still haven't learnt my lesson about headaches. I woke up Sunday morning with only a vague sense that maybe my head would start aching but stupidly resisted the urge to see about getting some paracetamol, thinking that it wasn't even a headache yet and it would be foolish ...

The automobicycle

Sunday, May 18th, 2008

I really ought to bear in mind that when I say 'bike' many people will hear 'bicycle' and not 'motorbike' as I intend.

Memory man

Thursday, May 8th, 2008

I was a little forgetful last night. I filled up my bike at the petrol station and then parked around the back of the station briefly so I could pick up some chips from the chip shop next door. After I had ordered my food I realised that ...

Motorbike vs. ambulance

Thursday, May 1st, 2008

Motorbike MOT annoyance

Monday, April 28th, 2008

I took the day off on Friday to take my motorbike in for a service and to get its annual MOT certificate. Because the bike needed a new front tyre the garage needed to service the bike outside of a weekend, hence the day off for me. On ...

Bonus choice

Tuesday, April 22nd, 2008

I made the choice on what to spend my small bonus. I decided that even though I would be able to use the Eee PC easily enough I didn't really want to make a move away from Mac OS because it is precisely the OS that makes me enjoy ...

Getting petrol

Friday, April 18th, 2008

There were three motorbikes, including mine, filling up at the petrol station I visited yesterday. Apart from when an instructor brings his duckling learners in to a station this is the most number of bikes I've seen filling up at any one time. With motorbikes being quite a ...

Crash helmet tiger ears

Tuesday, April 1st, 2008

I bought some tiger ears for my crash helmet last year. I was initially concerned with how well the ears would stay attached to my lid, being secured by only a sucker cup each, and was always relieved when I got to my destination with both ears still present. ...
