I used that reply just a couple of days ago.

When I went to pick up my uni, the guy at the bike shop asked inquisitvely, "You planning on joining the circus or what?" I'ts annoying to get lumped in with clowns.

Had a fair bit of positive feedback the other day whilst out on my 2-mile training loop.
Firstly from two young lads who both gave me an "Awesome!" and "Cool!" at the same time, so it sounded like "Awecoosomeol!"
Then from an elderly dog-walker, "Fair play mate, that takes balance."
Then on the long straight path to the park I pass a teenager swaggering along the path with his shirt off. After 30 seconds of riding I stop at the gates to catch my breath. He catches me up, and in passing gives me a 'respect' nod and says "Good luck" for the not-so-even path ahead of me.

Ha!
Badges!? I no need no stinkin' badges!

After a few yards I'm past him and away.
Finally I pass two young lads on BMX's who have stopped at the bridge over the river. One of them slightly blocks the way, and has his back to me, so I divert round him and carry on over the bridge.
"Sweeeet!" says the youngster.

I love positive comments.

Keep a hold of that number plate for future reference.
Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, but one day it'll come in handy!

A few weeks ago a very charming redneck in a white pickup truck insisted that I do a wheelie. As I was riding quickly away from him I did a little rolling hop. Then I heard lots of drunken laughter.

Yesterday I was walking with my girlfriend and my municylce down from University home.

A policeman who was on duty on a junction due to soccer game said: 'You don't need a lot of parking space* with this thing, don't you?'

I just replied that it comes in handy at the moment and gave him a big smile.
It was really nice to get a positive comment from the authorities......

*You have to know the soccer game was a world cup tournament game, so the traffic and parking situation around here is a bit tense on game days.

A few days ago me and Dale_Dale were in one of Chroleys parks near a church and a very scary looking transvestite walked by, looked at us both and just laughed at us (which sounded like a monkey somehow) and gave us another scary look

i go by tonnes of transvestites and transsexuals, being gay you noticed them easily.

Got a freaky transvestite look at me when i went down wirral way with cathy.

Normally you ignore things or not notice them, but for example, say i go buy a mini clubman car. You'd see them all about, when you wouldn't b4

Sorry to do a quick threadjack, but if you have particular ways that you like your sexual orientation referred to, do you really think you should refer to other people as 'freaky transvestite'? Or is that what they officially like to be called.

Also, as a point of interest, why does you being gay make transvetites and transsexuals (or is it transgendered people) easier to notice, and why does it matter.

Threadjack over,

Thanks

Cathy

Perhaps he _was_ freaky. The way Zippy said it didn't necessarily imply that all transvestites are freaky, just this particular one.

Anyway, back on topic...
I rode my bike to work this morning, and some builders who usually see me unicycling shouted "so you've found the rest of your bike then!"
I've never heard it that way round before
