The Running Bug

well it seems Kerry and I have the running bug, we started running back in August last year giving ourselves 8 weeks to train for a 5k in October which we completed and were very proud of ourselves so much so we done another one  in the November.

However things have gotten a bit daft and we have entered the Edinburgh half marathon which is on May 31st and we are training hard for it the most recent run was 9 miles and hopefully in the 8 weeks left we get to a good enough level to complete the run in a good time.

Goals for the Year.

So I set a few goals for myself this year one being to find a new job, I was offered one but it won’t work out financially which was totally gutting but never mind.

Another goal was to run 10k which I managed a few nights ago yes it hurt but was well worth it I was really pleased about it.

On a totally different note I’ve just watched a music video by Steel Panther called “Death to all but Metal” I have to say very funny lyrics (Be warned though it’s quite foul) I’m laughing as I type this.

What an idiotic world we live in.

Sexism, Political Correctness, Racism, Homophobia all these words nowadays are used too much and too often for the most part.

Today’s “scandal” is an Australian announcer asking a female tennis player to “give us a twirl” how in hell is that sexist?? I would say that if nothing else it would boost the young lady’s self esteem and she even said herself she thought it was funny.

Now there’s also been a massive fuss over page 3 too and here’s my opinion (which i believe in a supposed freedom of speech country I’m allowed) I see no harm in it I do not believe it makes people into sexual predators I don’t believe it makes men rape women I believe if nothing else it empowers women and basically no-one should dictate otherwise. No-one is forcing anyone to buy the paper.

The trouble with today’s world is that too many petty people are listened to and too many people look to be offended nowadays and to me it is disgraceful when you can’t say what you think without someone looking to get you arrested for it.

As for this so called freedom of speech/expression I do not believe that such a thing exists in this country I believe it’s a case of “You can have freedom of speech but only if it doesn’t differ from the PC Goody Goody Bleeding Heart Brigades View”.

The world has gone soft and people’s skin is so thin nowadays I’m surprised I don’t see more folk walking about with their bones sticking out in the open so I say to everyone GET A GRIP.

Poundland Gets It…

So I was in Poundland the other day and in their “bargain bucket” there were “live” dvd’s of the vile unfunny Russell Brand, the smug unfunny Ricky Gervais and the bloody annoyingly unfunny Michael McIntyre and I believe that the bucket is the best place for this bunch of unfunny so-called comedians.

Sky News Should Be Ashamed

Just reading that Sky News apologised to viewers because the front cover of the latest Charlie Hebdo paper was shown, so Sky News let’s let the lunatics and terrorists win them why don’t we I mean it wasn’t long ago Sky News were banging on about freedom of speech etc etc but now they are doing exactly what the nutters out there want which is to be afraid to show anything that might upset the lunatics.
