MAN OF STEEL SEEKS FRIENDS


As my services were not required at Café C this weekend ,I had a relaxed if unexciting time.
Friday night I went to the gym and did some cardio , then scampered off home , put on loud music and did the whole Ninja Cleaning thing.
This is not girly dabbing about with a duster and polishing me knick knacks in a desultory fashion , Its yomping about with the Dyson , dragging out furniture and getting down and dirty with my legendary " Flexible Crevice Tool" . Finished up just in time for dinner and an Ugly Betty Double Bill…..yippeeee
Saturday I got up early and went into town , mooched about the bookshops , did some bank stuff and had a coffee in the square while I read the scandalous celebrity goings on in the Sun . Then it was a trip to the gym for a lengthy cardio and weights spectacular .

There was a chubby middle aged guy floating about in the gym inexplicably dressed as superman (Cape , red boots and everything) . He kept looking expectantly at anyone who went past .Looked to me that he wanted someone to stop and chat , and was probably dressed as superman as an attention seeking gambit . I , along with everyone else studiously ignored him .(well you do don’t you , nobody wants to get stuck with the nutter)
Now I feel rotten about it , if I see him again I will make some jolly quip about his attire . I know I will probably regret it :-( , but hell , if the poor bugger has to go to such lengths to get noticed.....

Saturday Night I wandered round to the Gaskins to watch The Xfactor . It's long been a favourite of ours , the only thing that’s annoying me at the moment is the producers seem to be fixated on sob stories , it gets a bit dull that every contestant is a weeping and a wailing the whole time over whatever insignificant tale of woe they can dredge out of their past
‘My hamster died when I was four that’s why this is so important to me’ booo hooooo .
Yeah like it has nothing to do with craving attention ,money and fame then ???
Just cut the crap and get on with it .
Sunday was more of the same :-)

That Dyson crevice attachment tool has been all over the blogosphere; has anybody seen fit to wash it yet?
My fingernail broke this morning, I am therefore entitled to yet unimagined wealth, fame, and fortune . . . . plus I'd be really chuffed if you spoke to my brother when he goes to the gym . . .

Miss Scarlet I also have a dyson Soft dusting Brush , but I never mention that, as altho its real usefull it doesnt sound at all rude !

scarlet-blue said...

Much fun can be had with the soft dusting brush . . . it tickles and it has very gentle suction . . .

You had a better weekend than me Beast I worked - all weekend ! Boo.

To clear the decks for some papers that were due to come this morning and then they didn't arrive! Even bigger Boo! So I'm off to the gym now!

Where was Farting Legpress Man?

KAZ said...

You will definitely regret it - he'll tell you about when his hamster died when he was four - probably got sucked up his crevice tool.

If you really want to make his day you could put on a Lois Lane wig. But I think it would be more you style to upstage him in a Batman costume.

I am sure the evil Professor Dyson would advise caution Miss Scarlet , one false move and heaven knows what will end up in the bucket

You seem obsessed with colonic wind at present Miss MJ , was it really a sore throat that kept you under the duvet , or clean up following some ghastly gastric incident....hmmmm

Sounds nasty ,but would probably explain the bizare attention seeking behaviour , iether that or he is a complete tool....Only one way to find out!

Mr B , cross dressing is frowned upon by the gymnasium fraternity , it is so much less confusing if one can guarantee the big butch thing in a skirt IS a girl. I would never upstage anyone , I am a shy retiring type at heart

I'll bet he's one of our little circle of bloggers.

Who are you thinking of Miss MJ

Frobisher said...

I would go to the gym as Wonder Woman and lasso people and make them tell me the truth!

I must admit X Factor brings out the worst in me. Schadenfreude in overdrive, laughing my socks off as "Shazznay" or whatever is kicked off blubbing! Poor Dermot must have to wring his shirt out with the amount of losers crying on his shoulder! hahahahahahaha

i understand what you mean about the "nutter" for some reason they gravitate towards me...perhaps it is because i have the overwhelming urge to look...i can't help it...if someone is odd out there i will notice them...and they will invariably talk to me...however, in saying that, i did have a nutter defend me from a mugging a while back...he thought he was my hero...i thought he was nuts but thanked him politely all the same :)

World Champ Stephen Neal said...

I never need to "get noticed." The celebrity of the World Champ is flocked upon by adoring fans wherever he goes. As a matter of fact, Stephen Neal was originally cast as the main character in the television show "24", but was replaced by the producers when he managed to kill every terrorist and save the day in 12 minutes and 37 seconds.

He sounds more like Bizarro then Superman! Perhaps he forgot that Halloween comes at then end of the month! And didn't your mother ever warn you against talking to strangers? Don't take any candy from him if he offers it. And take some Kryptonite to the gym next time just to be safe!

BEAST said...

frobi : It has that Roman Games feel about it. Its my fave show.
***spits at strictly***.

Daisy . Thats terrible , at least the nutter was at hand :-)

Champ . the life of an over achieving world champ is harsh , but you have your beard and a merry band of supporters for company

Bingowings. Ma Beasty would counsel grabbing the sweet and running like hell....she was very big on healthy exercise :-)

Daisy said...

it wasn't as dramatic as it sounds...and to be honest i don't think the mugging would have been successful...but i did have a "knight" to my rescue, so to speak...
