fragment (consider revising)

I'm going a bit woozy thinking about the lovely Yelena Isinbayeva who's just taken Olympic gold in the Pole Vault, as well as smashing the Olympic and World Records. Ooooh.

The canteen at work sells a range of healthy options. Pies, chips, mayo-stuffed all-day-breakfast sandwiches, you name it. I feel like that bloke from Supersize Me. I am going to turn into a Tub of Lard. What's worse is that the job is entirely sedentary, topped and tailed with two hours sat in the car. I need exercise and an extra few hours in the day.

Now, I'm not sure what's happening with Blogger's 'blog by email' facility. It used to be you'd fire off your email and by the time you'd opened your browser it'd been published. Now it's taking up to twelve hours to appear. So much for push-button publishing.

There's a new Douglas Coupland book on its way... Eleanor Rigby. Plus, in September, Guided By Voices terminal release 'Half Smiles of the Decomposed' (at least this is the last release before they split... I can't believe there aren't several hundred unreleased rarities hanging around in Bob Pollard's basement somewhere, destined for future box-sets.)
