    So,....

    So, well, anyhow


    So, it's still a bit warm here

    So, the wife is due to bring me back the new Brooks to put on my older-but still-good ride

    So, I wasn't able to go fetch it myself - boring and frustrating passport issues

    So, there's a century one day, metric the next, planned for a weekend in October as a fundraiser for EOD wounded (Explosive Ordnance Disposal, bomb disposal heroes), and we should be able to raise a couple of hundred riders

    So, umm, well, and err, wha'ver

    So, you send your wife out of country to pick up a bike saddle?

    So, I must have married the wrong gal.

    Erm, well, y'know

    Picking up the saddle wasn't her first mission, although important. My role was to stay here, assuring the free world's supply of ignitable hydrocarbons and buying her and the offspring's tickets firstly to California and thence to UK, where I was to join them (and, among other pleasures, to buy bike stuff)

    It's an honour and a pleasure to serve. But, the chaps who were renewing my residence permit didn't do so in time for me to leave for the planned leave.

    I mean. like. So. Whaddya, y'know. I mean.

    So, those old outstanding warrants catching up with you?
    You can further the brotherhood of man by eliminating class.
    You can lift the wage earner up by equalizing earnings.
    You can bring about prosperity by overturning the holders of power.
    You can strengthen the weak by eating the the strong.
    You can help the poor by destroying the rich.

    Bad boys. Bad boys all.

    According to BikeSnob, LSD flashbacks are a myth. Is this true? Do you ever, like, see giant lizards where you would reasonably not expect to see them? And what do they try to do to you?

    Ok, so it's still pretty hot here. Humid too. Wonder where my old English teacher is these days. Prolly rolling over in his crypt.

    Sentence fragments detected above and where might giant lizards NOT be expected?

    Will no one uphold standards?

    Let's just hope WOG doesn't end up stateless.

    You mean there are places it is not reasonable to see giant lizards?
