Pity I'm not closer, Crashie, my temporary filling just fell out!
And yeah, Symes, D'uh!
Question for the floor... Why is that in some men, arrogance can actually be quite attractive, and yet in others it just comes across as 'up themselves'. Or women I guess. Discuss!
fine line between mr "confident" not quite arrogance and Mr Sexist bastard pig min?
Books, you want a copy of "Hello sailor" by that bloke that attempted the Hour record on a bike.
I'm not a fan of arrogant people. Mainly because I'm better than all of them.
So, it's Friday afternoon.
Stuff that, it's not arrogance if you are THE best!
Chicks dig alpha males, and when they are not into the alpha they want whatever the popular girls have.
Guys just drift along, unaware that as they display they are just the poker chips on the womens table.............
Some guys are just dicks, o/
*Throws roast beef into the pot*
But some males aren't Alpha (or females) they just THINK they are. And that's when it all goes wrong. I quite like an Alpha Male myself. But I don't like condecending numpites who surround themselves with 'little' people in order to make themselves look great, And then forget the people who knew them before and treat them with something bordering on contempt. Y'see.
I think I may be an omega male.
Symes - ah well, never mind. I should be avoiding cake anyway.

Michael Hutchinson? "The Hour" is a briefly amusing read.
I dont think I'm an alpha male.
I ran 6 miles. It seemed like hard work. This does not bode terribly well for next Wednesday's race.
Flyers - I'm pretty sure you're not an alpha male. For a split second your last post made me think that the singer from INXS was a cyclist...
I've realised I'm an Alfa male.
SVT - well, if two of us harbour the same suspicion, I think we can just chalk it up as fact.
So, my hard work 6 miles actually took 47:20. Which might explain why it felt like hard work. And might not be so bad for next Wednesday after all!
Have a good run, Muskers!
I can't believe that I'd spotted the Alfa Male pun a mile off, but then been beaten to it! Damn!
Flyers, nope, you're not an alpha male; I think you have to be a boy for that 47:20 for 6 miles, however, must make you an Alpha Female...damn good running!
I'm not sure what sort of a male I am, but I must be some sort or other; I could fancy being an Epsilon Male, I think.
Symes, beer and cake; perfect for a decaironalphamale, methinks!
I've just PBd my off road loop by 38 seconds over 3.6 miles; chuffed with that. Ooh, bad joke alert:
My mate just committed suicide by throwing himself in front of a steam train; he was chuffed to bits.
I thank you.
I agree with Tortoise...."Or " statement. ,which includes Alpha Females... scary.
Symes by now i hope you managed the cake an Beer earlier.
Well done on the PB loop Crashie Epsilon (disappears to look up epsilon).
GP........walk in the Park for You. Or run/walk in this case. never say can't.....!!
Morning from Wet Wales.
Crashie - someone actually told me they were "chuffed to bits" <said in northern accent> with my work this week (unfortunately it wasn't my boss!)
Hurrah to half-term. Off to the Hay Festival to see Brian Cox today - "see" being the operative word from me However, HLad is immersed in his book and keeps trying to tell me things that he thinks I will like (poor mite!)
I have some Olympic tickets (well money has now gone out of my account) - but not all of them So now commences the task of beating the letter to work out which ones I've got - my money's on handball and volleyball with some out of hockey, basketball and tabletennis. I think tennis and swimming will be no-nos and I'm not sure about the athletics .....
Gizzy; no problems! Just take it easy for the first couple of hours. I've got the Marrs Bar tickets BTW
HL, nice work on the Olympic tickets.
*waves to the tortoise*
We've been out on a run, but Squish's cold meant we only did five rather than the planned 11; nice run though!
We were at a bulimia party last night; the place was heaving!
ITV commentator to Nemanja Vidic (Man Utd Captain after losing the Champions League Final 3-1)
"How do you sum up the match Nemanja?"
"Errrrrr. They won"
The boy's a genius I tells yah.
Lexi, thanks for the ultra feedback (for want of a better word). Hope you're not too wet in Wales.
Thanks for getting the tickets Mr H, how much do I owe you? (I did ask for 3 didn't I? Me, Jude and Jon). Glad you had a nice run. Thanks for the ultra feedback.
I think there's a joke about the bulimic jokes being in poor taste and a bit sick, just can't quite word it though.
Now, The Darkness, Leamington, 6th June; anyone fancy it?
Crashie - nice offer but no thanks
Well done on the running - you and Squishmusky - hope the plymouth half went well
Yesterday I went to Hay and went to the circus, saw Prof Brian Cox (and even understood some of what he said!) and Rob Lowe signed my book I wish I'd discovered Hay earlier (the festival that is, rather than the town) - HLad and I are going back on Thursday and HLad is going with a friend on Tuesday as well!
Today I have been gardening - not nearly as much fun!
HL - well done on the star spotting!
I've been doing more mundane things but having a good weekend, and a 59-second PB at the MK parkrun yesterday (including my first top-half finish).
