So what is timesnewroman? It's not the font, rather my take on the age we live in. The USA is the new Rome and the times we live in are timesnewroman.

Leaner, Meaner, Keener

I'm a bit achey tired and sweating. Nope its not the return of manflu, I've been out on my bike for half an hour. They say this is supposed to be good for you and to be honest I feel sort of great having done it. The weather has been complete shite since Christmas so I've only been on it a few times. This time was perhaps the best, not too far, not too short, just enough to get the cardiovascular system working, but not so much as I never want to see a bike again, which was the case first time around.

I'm also trying to lose a bit of weight, a big bit of weight. Last week I lost 3 pounds and this week only 1. Again this is down to the weather I think, rather than eating. If its dry I like to walk from the station to work, but if its wet or I'm late, I get the bus. Last week I mostly got the bus.

I'm not on a diet. That's such a stupid term. I'm just being a bit more careful with what and how much I eat. Out with the butter and hefty French cuisine and in with lighter stuff and seafood. Dropping pints of beer as intake during quizzes in local pubs and sticking instead to wine on the Sunday and soda water and lime on the Monday. No shit between meals, only fruit and no, absolutely no, rolls and slice! Well maybe once every couple of months. Who knows I may fade away to a mountain.

Football, huh what a shite sport, me I hate it and I'm never going back to sit in the cold and watch the most mediocre crap that 22 guys can perpetrate ever again! I say 22 because as much as Kilmarnock were complete pish, so too were Dundee United. Martyn Corrigan! There's a fabulous signing, 2 games, 1 goal and 1 assist. Unfortunately all at the wrong end. Would Jim Jeffries please just fuck off and leave us alone!

Still some good news, and more good news. Cheered me up no end!
