I'm a kitchen utensil

For those not aware of this game, it's like twenty questions. But instead of being a famous person or a type of animal, you have to pick kitchen utensils.

Saturday: 9 miles
Sunday: 4 miles hill reps
Monday: 4 miles steady
Tuesday: No running (Mrs Noel at Bjorn Again!)

Thursday: 10 miles
Friday: 3 miles
Weekly total: 30 miles

Saturday: 5 miles
Sunday: 8.5 miles
Monday: 3 miles (hill sprint reps)
Tonight: 6 miles

Here's a picture from one of my runs. It's the steaming slurry heap from one of the local farms amid Saturday's early-morning frost. It's a glamorous life this fell running.

  2. Is it for combing Spaghetti into a more linear pattern on the plate, thereby making access to the meatballs a more straightforward operation? Also useful for obsessive compulsives that like their meals to presented in an orderly fashion on the plate? The Howard Hughes Spag Comb?

  3. I think both these suggestions should be added to its intended use. This might increase sales of the...

    I'll tell you all in a few days ;)
