Surely they're at the wrong angle for perving, unless they've got a fetish
for wrinkled feet?

Just because my bike speed in triathlons increases as the girl's groups
start to overtake has nothing to do with perving. It's just co-incidence
that that is where I get my second wind. (yeah right)

No, that's true :(
But then again, I am Scottish, not Australian. Australian's seem to be
particularly good at swimming and Scots particularly **** (probably
something to do with the temperature of the water). I seriously considered
getting lessons to improve my technique when I moved out here a year or two
ago, but any spare time seems to have disappeared down the back of the
sofa.

Yeah I say g´day to everyone. If they ignore you it tells you something

My comment was tounge in cheek. I'm about to set off for a 21 km
training run in a few minutes. Obviously if I didn't like it I wouldn't
do it.
What's your PhD?

Feh. I was forced to do it. Bloody PE teachers!

The only time I wagged school was when an all day sport fest of some
variety was on. After perving at the running girls in tight clothes.

Something to do with astronomy. Where's suzy, anyway?

But top triathletes also run a lot faster than top cyclists :)

I'll pay it.

Next time try folding kayaks on the open ocean.

Bl**dy stoopid Navy whose boats aren't always at the right place at the
correct time or appropriately costumed.

I read your astronomy page and the whole time I could hear The Galaxy

Funny. When I saw the health minister ogling the premature babies at
the shiny new childrens hospital, on the news the other day, I was
looking at the very expensive machine that goes 'ping', in the
background.

*ROFLMAO*

I saw a cyclist pulling out of Creek Rd as I approaced the red light
this morning. I was running late, passing there about 0650, but thought
it might be you, in kit that I hadn't seen you in. Then "you" opened
the gap and I thought you might have gotten a better run of lights than
me. Then I saw "you" trackstand at the lights at Marshall Rd
hahahahahaha! Guess it wasn't you after all! (Ain't that just the
perfect spot to trackstand, on the uphill bit? Wish I could...)

You said you recognise me when I'm in the sky blue squad gear - well I
think you might be onto something, because I noticed a lot more cyclists
(male, individual) saying g'day to me today than when I wear the
orange/yellow/ADF/whatever gear.
