Serious question, have you given them a go?

If not, I think it'd be fair for you to watch the first 5 of Season 1


I watched Season 1 and enjoyed it generally. I'm not really into the fantasy stuff at all but found it a fairly easy watch and would watch it if it's on. Nothing against the show really, just the obsession and cult like following that it engenders, I just can't get that excited about any TV show!

It's basically used to describe how school run mums dress, especially round my neck of the woods. They do it so they can tacitly signal to one another that they are high status wives because they don't have jobs to go to, and can spend all day in the gym.

Agree with this .... the run might as well have not happened if it wasn't recorded properly. My phone ran out of juice 12miles into a half marathon once. I was pretty grumpy at that point anyway as I was running low on energy, but I was in a foul mood when Runkeeper stopped .... I felt like I ran across the line with one of those comedy dark clouds above my head!!

I'm going to pick up a motor today that needs a bit of work doing on it - a proper bargain that's not going to need much done to it, and I will make around 600 quid on it when I flog it. It' has a flat battery, and I am going to need to jump it -and somewhere in the house/garage I have two sets of jump leads - but can't find either set and it's doing my nut in.

I just know when I go and buy a new set, I will find them...

EDIT: Found the ****ers! :scarfer:

Don't knock it mate. The alternative is the low status mums round my way who do similar in their dressing gowns to tacitly signal to the other butter legged lazy slags that they also don't have to work and are quite happy sitting at home all day poncing benefits, smoking and fudding themselves off over Jeremy Kyle......

A fair point, but this lot don't look healthy or happy. They just look frigid and joyless.

They're broken, full of self loathing, unable to find their place in the world, desperate to signal to those around them that they are "better", hoping that the facade of physical fitness will prevent others from seeing the fetid void where their soul should be.

On another topic, very sorry to hear about your expensive gadget failing to record your personal best on your run to work.

It wasn't as if I wasn't expecting it , but on the very day we're packing the car about to set off for Northumberland for a week's holiday the letter telling me that I'm going into hospital to have my gallbladder removed arrived [ going in on the 23rd August ] - my pre-op was back in March 14th - ah well , hopefully everything will go ok and put a stop to any more blocked bile ducts .
