    OK. We've had the "Friday" thread, and millions about what you'll do tomorrow, or next week, the next few months, sometime ...

    ... and what you did yesterday / last week / ten years ago, and so on.

    This one is about what you are doing RIGHT NOW.

    I don't mean when I wrote that, although what I shall mention below, in a few moments, was true at the time. I mean at the time when you write what you are doing, when you eventually do post on here, if you see what I mean .

    It's a bit like the "drinking and listening" thread, but I like to feel we have more diverse tastes and interests than just those things.

    Just to keep it simple, just put in what you are doing/thinking about directly as you are typing. Could be doing something in your garage, your garden, watching TV etc. If it's things that you obviously cannot be doing at that instant, i.e. properly parallel processing, I'll accept up to an hours window either side for something like reading a book. Or skydiving.

    And, please keep it decent and civil.

    Right now, aside from being online here ( which, for the avoidance of doubt, goes without saying ) I am making ice-cream. Blackberry this time. I did a batch of strawberry yesterday, and am starting to think about a kind of "fruits of the forest" equivalent of neapolitan. I might do elderflower as the third one.

    I am sure you are all doing something more productive, interesting, ironic.

    I've just washed the dishes and came in to turn off the Today programme before I head off to the market for my fruit and veg.


    Is that what you mean?

    I am sat in my office chair in my home office. I have a large kitten on my knee sat like a baby suckling on my left hand. I have a cup of coffee and I am in my gym kit ready for a PT session. I should be working and I have done a bit already but now waiting for a German fella to email me a contact name so using the time to surf.

    I will be ringing Complog shortly to order over 1200 of tyres <gulp>

    Washing up the breakfast stuff, putting on a load more washing, moving the van so a JCB can come and create mayhem and finishing my mug of tea.

    Well, yes.

    Although I didn't know exactly what you were up to, so I suppose I just mean that that's the sort of thing I meant in general, rather than specifically

    And although I can't verify what you've said, I trust you implicitly.

    What kinds of fruit and veg will it be ? I like dates.

    Sorting out the President's long service award which is being donated to a scholarship fund. That type of thing?

    Just got back from dropping the kids off to the school bus. Eldest is being a mardy cow this morning and does not want to go to school but I think that is due to having my brother and his girlfriend stay for a few days last week/weekend.

    Now contemplating cleaning the house and start to pack up the house ready for our move. Eccles has now moved down south leaving me to finish up here. Mammouth task ahead and not an empty box in sight. For now I will just sit on the laptop and drink my tea.

    I'm sitting in an old signal box at Clapham Junction, drinking coffee, playing internets and thinking about when my delivery of parts will arrive at home and how on earth I'm going to fit them on my bike (fork seals, brake pads, service kit etc). Am contemplating getting a man in to do the work, or woman.

    Right now seeing what delights the weekend has brought me at work.

    Later I'll be committing over 3k to get my car resprayed. A culmination of the original owners daughter scraping both rear wings (like it when I got it), lots of stone chips on the front (don't draft on trackdays - especially when you've huge more grunt than a badly driven M3), and someone deciding to use the rear wing again as a parking sensor (yup keep going, keep going, crunch yup far enough) then buggering off.

    I could claim insurance but it would load all my insurance policies and cost me much more in the long term.

    Get a man in whilst he's gone?

    With your brother staying, didn't you put him to work?

    I've just had porridge for brekky,de-greased my engine bars ready for hammeriting which I am going to do in the living room shortly while listening to 6 music in the warm.

    I'm thinking about going to the chemists after for something to use on my puffy eye,feels like I have a scratch on my inner eyelid, well actually it feels like a hedghog has been curled up under there all night.
