Another long day …

Today is going to be another long day. It started at 5am with a one hour teleconference that I did from home, then continued with an 8am interview at work, followed by a fairly solid day of meetings all the way through to 6pm. The next meeting starts at 11.30pm through until 1am, at least I can have a glass of wine with that one!

I did still manage to get out for a ride, but it was after dinner and so was only a short ride before darkness fell; 17.5km at an average speed of 27.8 km/hour.

Debbi, to answer your question, “hoon” is a slang term we use here, here is the Wikipedia definition;

Hoon is a derogatory term used in Australia and New Zealand, to refer to a young person who engages in loutish, anti-social behaviour. In particular, it is used to refer to one who drives a car in a manner which is anti-social by the standards of contemporary society, that is, fast, noisily and/or dangerously.

What term would you use for this?

    hope you got through your long day. One of the joys of retirement is NOT having a jam packed day, every day.

    Hmm, guess we’d call that person a “hood”–a bit antiquated, but, maybe, so am I

    Yes, a hood or maybe a thug. By the way, your long speedy bike ride sounded great! You were burning rubber.

    completely off topic – do you run with your garmin? and can i ask how much you paid for it?

    That was one long day! You’ve given me an idea, though. Maybe I’ll serve wine instead of coffee at the next meeting I organize. 🙂
