Training in earnest.

What ho chums!
Observe the hour. I haven't been up this early since Homer was a pup, or that time I went to Glasgow.
And my reasons for such an unearthly awakening? Why running of course. I have decided to step up the old training-but on soft ground. So I'm off to Marley park. To Run. It's not even eight.
I'm sure I know what I'm doing, I'm just sure of it.
Apropos the picture, 300 has been released stateside and made 70 million dollars on it's first weekend! 70 million! I mean I think it cost 6cent to make. OOOOh I cannot wait for it to come over here so that I can add to its coffers.

How's the knee?

Dodgy as fuck Sam, but holding its own. Just back, did five miles as a slow very slow pace and it feels dandy. Off for a shower now.

Great that you have your run out of the way early in the day! Those trails you spoke about in Glendalough are great for some long runs too, along the Wicklow Way even? You can last longer cos the ground isn't hard as concrete (as long as you don't get lost!). In the Summer months there's lots of people/ hill walkers/ Spanish students on the trails at the weekends and it feels quite safe.

I thought I was all primed for the day, but reading about you running has worn me out. Think I'll just go and lie down for half an hour to recover

I think he fills them out rather well myself, Miss Swearing.
Aquaasho, baby step, baby steps. I might gad down there on the weekend, we'll see how the knee is holding up. And the weather, especially the weather.
Sorry Kim, but it feels splendid to have gotten it all out of the way so early. I must admit I'm wondering about breakfast though, I'm sure bacon and eggs and white pudding is NOT the breakfast of champions, but my toast was wholemeal.

You're an inspiration, FMC. I do believe I'll visit the gym today. After spending last week on a cruise ship eating and (especially) drinking non-stop, I seriously need some exercise.

White pudding!! Say it isn't so, cat!

Black pudding is to fried blood-clot as white pudding is to fried pustule. I was brought up on marag every Sunday morning which was fine until I started going out on Saturday nights and having to pretend I wasn't hungover and bilious at the very thought of them, the following morning at breakfast. These memories have stayed with me and form the backbone of my current marag prejudice, although the fact that they're fried flaming bloodclot and sauteed freaking pustule forms the spinal cord of that bias.

Dagnabit, I like it. Not the black though.

You've mentioned this picture before. Is it about Thermopolae? Where the arrows of the Persians blackened the sky and all that? Read the book, bit gory for me. Bloody Hoplites, 2ps? can't remember.
What possesed you to go to Glasgow? Did you take your car? Thought not. Who would? What knee is it, because there's a thing I can show you that'll make it feel better.

Don't look at Dr. Maroon's thing, fmc! That sort of thing doesn't cure anything! On the contrary it can cause blindness and deafness and, in a bad case, dumness. And an angry rash.

Dear Sam thank you for giving me morning sickness - I thought those days were bygone.
FMC make sure you have really well cushioned foot wear - I'm thinking of your later years and warming up and cooling down . In other words take all the boring precautions. On the other hand if you are going to be stuffing yourself with fried blood clotted pustules I'm wasting my breath! And don't speak to any strange men!

Some of the most popular shoes are inspired by the 1920's "flapper era" when Mary Janes were in vogue. But after so many years out of the work force, she naively answered the want ad in the paper, and was instantly hired. In order to complete any vintage look, one must find the right shoes.

Make sure you have plenty of them saved so you have enough to put people's purchases in or to wrap fragile items in. Plus, the advertising is covered by the group that puts on the sale (the local chamber of commerce) and the huge number of vendors there, usually about 100, means that it attracts crowds. My thought was, "I had better hurry up because obviously EVERYONE knows about this sale".

And you will be some how astonished when it is cold enough to wear trousers.
It isn't necessary to wear all designer duds to look professional. Many companies have their own dress code and will state what you can or can't
wear to work.

Then utilize a scissor to make loopholes, take out stitches and make
the clothes look incredibly worn out. The typical flapper gown was
beaded and adorned with tassels. Now emerges a political candidate, wearing a
dress, a moose hunter, a hockey mom, who is once again redefining the
way women are to dress and act.

Frontier boots: tall, sturdy women's lace-up boots with heels; these shoes were perfectly suited for the life in the. Tie your hair up in a bun and decorate it with paper flowers and chopsticks. Victorian era, leather gloves were quite popular but now followers of Victorian fashion will order them in any range of fabrics, often with ornate decorations.

Combs are appropriate for hair worn up in a French roll, chignon,
or other updo. I had a few nice brown feathers, which I
put into use, while an elegant headband. The preferred look with the feather bunch is like the old fashioned facial veils on hats reaching down to the chin.
