  1. And I am still try­ing hard to con­ceal my over­whelm­ing excite­ment about this new gim­mick…


  2. Just wait until you get to the end of a run and you wait, whilst details of the run are read out, to hear Lance or Paula tell you that you’ve just done your longest run or fast­est mile or maybe that you’ve burned some “ser­i­ous cal­or­ies” (as Lance puts it). Or (as in most of the time) you just get a long silence at the end of the readout, and you real­ise that there are no enthu­si­ast­ic words regard­ing your latest run. It bites.


  3. I’m wait­ing for the iCouch, which clips onto your bag of crisps and cal­cu­lates just how long you’ve been loun­ging on the sofa for and how many beers you’ve drunk.

    Very amus­ing post, though!

  4. Bonjourno! This is Luciano Pavarotti! You’ve man­aged to eat your body­weight in salted, MSG-laden snacks. Eessa bueno!”

  5. Ian, you brought a tear to my eye too. And I don’t even run.

    I did once have the idea for i-Beer, which is sim­il­ar to Roland’s idea. Not quite sure what i-Beer is but I’m sure it’s neces­sary.

    Technical ques­tion: what’s a ‘dongle’?

    Thanks for your com­ment on me plog, by the way. That female anarch­ist book sounds amaz­ing. I will have to look it up. I haven’t seen it on my wanders.

    I’m read­ing the Romanov book and next have a book about the tsar­ist gov­ern­ment and admin­is­tra­tion. What sort of thing are you look­ing into spe­cific­ally? I’ll have a think if I’ve come across any­thing appro­pri­ate.

    Hey, as the author of a tech­no­thrill­er, and one of the few who have read Taking Comfort, would you believe that the paper­back of TC was included in a chart of tech­no­thrillers on amazon.co.uk? In fact, it peaked at num­ber 4! The amaz­ing thing is I had no idea it is a tech­no­thrill­er. Even now, I can’t for the life of me fit it into that genre. I am wor­ried that people expect­ing a tech­no­thrill­er will be sorely dis­ap­poin­ted. Who decides these things? Must be due to a tech­noglitch, espe­cially as the book’s over­all amazon rank­ing was far from spec­tac­u­lar.

    Carry on!

  6. i want one of those! although my bloody back is stop­ping me run­ning at the moment… per­haps i can hack it to give Johnny Vegas chim­ing in with “get your arse in gear lad or you’ll look like me, ya lazy fat twat!”
