On yer bike!

Day 1 of the 6 day shift cycle. Shift 4:00am till midday
Press - Mulder
Tiles made: Marseiiles 50 Brun Masse - 5400
Dry Tiles unstacked: Ventilation 033 Xahara - 5300

I rode in to work this morning. Alarm went off at 3:55am. Cycling kit was already, the bike packed. I dressed and went out. It was 6 degrees celcius and raining. Too late.
13 kilometers later I arrived at work, a bit damp, but the rain jacket is a good one. It served me well in Paris-Brest-paris in 2003. I forgot to zero the clock so I don't know how long it took.

The shift was hard work, big 50cm tiles that will be really shit to stack tomorrow because the get stuck on the bends in the conveyor belts and under the spray paint hoods.

Gentle ride home - 13k in 36 minutes. When I was fitter I was doing it under 30.

Saw your comment on YouTube about Pagans. Like everyone else, you bloviate without having any clue what it is you're talking about.

Read up on the different forms of Paganism. Once you get a little actual information in your head, THEN comment. Until that day, shut the fuck up.

Anonymous. What has something this blogger wrote on YouTube got to do with riding a bike to work? Where are your manners? Go boil some virgins or diddle some kiddies or whatever your different form of Paganism practises. Dolt.

P.S. - "Go boil some virgins or diddle some kiddies...?"

Sorry, Dumbarse, you've gotten us confused with the christians.

Stick a blue candle up your arse, sprinkle some ash in the air, thouroughly ground yourself and call down a curse on me.
Like I haven't got enough worries without Pagans getting their knickers in a bunch. I got that quote off a pagan website, and frankly, it's drivvel.

It's so funny how important dogmas can be to folk when they've been shown to be woven from shadows and misapprehensions. Nothing based on reality changes in "transcendental experiences" once the Dogma is written which bases it on the most powerful Fears.

Too many "bright lights" people deciding on their, with information shared freely amongst every person... Well, that would spread Fear's power too thinly, allowing more efficacious changes for everyone.

Thus the infidels of any National Religion must be banished or put to death.

I heard you got full-timed by the way, Stew. Cool beans. Glad to hear it's going well mon expatriot ami. (It'd be really cool if I managed to say that right. {-; )

Do you read James Wolcott? I was reading an old VF and saw where he's a cyclist too. Recommended reading is he on many points.
