Gettin Fit Essentials #1: Singapore Shorts

Over the next wee while I'm ging to post some of the essential bits of my get fit gears.

#1 Is Singapore Syle Running Shorts

Yes, the skimpy ones that show a lot of leg. Who cares what you look like, they are the most comfortable thing to wear if you're doing any running or decent distance walking.

 

P.S. Currently floating around 104. Have kinda leveled out a bit... need to step up the volume again soon but late August and most of Sept is travel mad for me.....

The Trump Card?

I think so!

The National Party have released their Tax Cut package and I'm pretty impressed.

This will mean pretty decent cuts for every income bracket.

Bit disappointed that the company rate is not being dropped until 1998 though!

[UPDATE]

More Reasons to Have Kids

OK... so I have a dog... and a cat.... they are my de-facto kids at the moment.

When I travel for work they have to go to the boarding kennels and cattery. I reckon I should be able to claim this as a work expense- I would not be incurring the expense were I not travelling for business.

The stinking IRD says that I can't. I could however claim it if they were real children. Though were that the case I'd probably be getting enough Working For Families that I wouldn't need to be travelling and instead could stay at home on my ass watching Sally Jessie.

Right I'm Going to Australia

I really struggle to see why I should be taxed to the eye balls to pay for others to have bloody Kids!

The problem for Labour is that if they keep milking the cash cow all the cows will go abroad..... what do you do then? You'll have to start milking the Goats and all their Kids too.......

[UPDATE]
Using the Labour party ' Sprogs For Dollars' calculator I've worked out that I only need to have 1 kid per year to be able to pocket $1000 a week!

I'm off to tell the missus!

[MORE UPDATE]

When even the crew @ Public Address are bagging it you know that something is wrong!

National Campaign TV Ad

OK... so you can watch the new National Party 'Southpark' TV add here.

It's pretty good.

For the non kiwis we used to have a thing in NZ called a 'Telethon' where they sang 'Thank You Very Much For Your Kind Donation'...

Wanna Spend Some Labour Party Money

0800 DONBRASH

Labour has a piss taking 0800 number setup...... now I'm assuming this isn't like the Working For Famalies Propoganda which was paid for by the taxpayer......

Anyway assuming it is not. I encourage you all to ring it from your mobile phone ('cos that costs them LOTS of money) at least once a day..... If we ca phone bomb this line enough we'll be sure to either

a) Get it pulled or;

b) Send the labour party broke....

I'd be happy with either....

For those with MS Smartphones let me know if you are interested in an autodialer... if there is enough demand I might write one so you can put your phone on the charger and leav it dialing 0800 DONBRASH all day....

I Have A New Gadget

OK.... so I have reached my first milestone!

Today, for the third weigh in in a row, I registered under 105kg- 104.2 to be exact.

As a result I have earnt my new gadget. Fortunatly my credit card billing period ticked over last night...... so I both deserved it and could afford to buy it!

Haven't had a good play with it yet... but look out for some nice charts of my progress on here real soon.

104.7 Again This Morning

Just one more sub 105kg weigh in and I can claim that I have reached my first goal :-)

Actually had a pretty average weekend- only got 3/4 of the way up Flagstaff on Sunday as it was Windy and Cold.

Did knock 30 seconds of my Mt Cargill time though- currently stands @ 44minutes and 58 seconds.
