The day my legs broke - an illustrated day in the life

We both hated a certain Mr Peter Lee at this point. Bad times.

Grantchester has the highest density of Nobel Prize winners anywhere in the world. One of the many reasons that Cambridge is the best place eva. Like.

1715 Porridge time! I believe porridge to be one of the world's best food stuffs. I therefore own enough oats to last me through a nuclear apocalypse.
I have two of these. That's 8kg of oats! From the excellent shop on Mill Road where you can weigh out your own herbs n spices n that :-)


I'm a little OCD and have a spoon that I only eat porridge with. It's just the right dimension y'know?
I am completely not crazy.

ManiaManiaMania. I do everything really fast. I will pay for this dearly in the morning.


So that's it. I have been reduced to a broken wreck and have taken to drawing pictures as solace.

And you know what? I FUCKING LOVE IT.



EDIT I would've done these on that magnificent program MS Paint, but that would have definitely lead me to completely trashing my laptop in a massive rage and the setting fire to the house or something. And it would have taken hours and I want to sleep. Hence I went for the exceptionally lo-tech option of drawing pictures then photographing them (the only scanner I have access to is (1) broken and (2) two miles away in college. And it's cold outside). 

Please don't judge me.

  1. LOVE this post. For so many reasons. Your extremely expressive stick figures ... the fact that you have a mug with Maxwell's equations on it and a designated porridge spoon ... brilliant.

    (Drawing pictures by hand is not a cop out, it's a perfectly valid choice!)

  2. Two things I'm intrigued by:

    1) What is this 'special' press-up you speak of? I don't want to be left out of the loop doing regular exercises when I could be doing special ones instead.

    2) Why oh why does milk feature while you're in the gym? Milk is the best liquid in the world but I would have thought chugging away during a work out is likely to increase the risk of chundering.

    Anyway, mad props on doing this sort of thing on a daily basis. My hamstrings are still sore from Monday and you should have seen my attempts at playing football the next day. Pathetic.

  3. 1 special press up = press up -> right side plank -> press up -> left side plank. We do 3*10 of these, after a load of beach weights :-)

    Milk seems to be OK while doing weights, but any other time = massive no.
