Pssst... BST. PDS*


BST. As you no doubt know, that's British Summer Time. It's when the clocks go forward. Daylight Savings, if you will.

It's muggy here today, and I keep hearing rolls of thunder. And rain keeps starting and stopping.

Gotta say, it doesn't feel much like summer. I don't mind, really, though. In our little office it gets so damn hot that we prefer it when it's not baking hot.

Still, a little sunshine is nice. Makes you feel alive. Less cranky.

We like talking about the weather here in the UK. Apparently. It's such a cliché, but it's true. But I also think we are not alone in that.

* Pretty damn shitty

So your lunchtime crankiness was weather-related, uh?

Heard a good thought today:

'Be like the weather; ignore all criticism.'

But yeah, it's shite.

We had a heat wave two weeks ago...33 celcius and more with humidity...then rain all last week and the strets were flooded...now todsay return to summer 33 celcius and the heat is building up outside right now. It's gorgeous at this moment...but it's going to be a stinker...good weather for a grilling though for Independance Day! We may or may not go downtown to see the fireworks...thinking about it.

Wow...I just caught up on all the new posts you made yea!!! You're back in full form I am excited...loved reading about the past week or so it sounds liek hell for you but I enjoyed reading about you scraping off the tiles. I've done that very thing myself and it is a hell job.

What a week too with doctors now blowing up things...well, we see a pattern the terrorists of the last en020 years have all been upper middle class snots who seem to think they should change the world. I imagine their spoiled childhoods and unrequited dreams have made them nihilistic the bastards...why don't they all get together instead and save the countries they come from and rejuvenate the inequality of Saudia Arabia and Afgahanistan and Pakistan...this is ridiculous they could use all their spoiled sport energy to help countries that need the help...I am sick of these well-off bastards...

Like Candy, it's going to 30C here for most of this week and no rain in site. I'd be more than happy to swap places with you for a week or two...

weather is a common denominator for all of us. we all have to experience it and it's an easy non-offensive subject.

July 3 here, supposedly summer, yet I still don a sweatshirt in the mornings and evenings. Maybe this is another reason why it's NEW England??
