To be Smaured or to be Shmaved?, that is the question......

It depends - me not knowing what a shmave is, and knowing the circles that you swim in, means that I'm a bit hesitant to make a call without seeing the contract first  :eh:

I was guessing that it involved wiping out your front wheel, and then wiping off your elbow or knee?  :sneaky:

Maate the question is what the fuck does Shmaved mean. Had to do a quick search, but could only find smaur. Which of course brings up Vorb first, scary.

Ok... Shmaving.......

is the clean removal of a layer of skin, through skating cleanly across a piece of planet earth... potentially after having left the saddle........

Creating that nice cheese sliced look that most cyclists have sported at one time or another....

sneaky   <---- thinking really hard.

Ok, having thought it through carefully, I'll take the smaur please, because

a) no-one else can see your arse
b) it only hurts to sit down for a couple of days at worst
c) you don't wake up in the morning stuck to the sheets
d) the wookie won't get nasty on you for muscling in on his turf (scraping skin)

Is it Shmaving of Schmaving?

Anyway, I think a good Schmave can be quite cool occassionally - 'cos you can turn up for work sporting wicked big scabs and scars, and everyone thinks you're hard (or insane) :crazy:

It's physical proof you haven't been sitting at home eating Cheesy Poofs (along with washboard abs of course)  ;)

Hmmm perhaps the inevitability of either needs to be looked at...  What are the stats....

Well, I'm definitely tempting fate here, but I haven't had a truly memorable schmave in some time.

My arse, on the other hand, would let you know that here is currently the land of smaur...probably because I haven't ridden in a couple of months, and I'm getting soft, but the first off-road ride here really hurt (the next day (and the day after that (and after that)))   :crazy:

Don't worry they have flouresent lighting in hell , as well as that nice hourglass icon spinning on a screen.  :satan: It's all there and waiting for you when you get fully shmarved.

I've discovered the secret to non-sore-office-botty is sitting on a 'Swiss Ball'  ;)

Yes - big rubber balls rock (and roll) and when you get really excited about your Project Brief or Report - you can bounce up and down on them... like this

bouncy bouncy bouncy :D

Well this will be my first ever post on this infamous site.
Smaur is the likely choice due to the fact that schmaving requires you to bleed and if that happens you end up with crusty scabs and then scars that you have to explain to your mum. :alien:  :withstupid: hehe...
