He he.

To be fair, it was hardly a little rain; some places got a month's worth of rain in an hour.

What I want to know is, what is up with the extreme (for Britain) weather lately?

You. I like you. In a non-creepy way. So you're going to the Mongolian rally, ey? With cypherspace? Does that mean you're coming to London on the 14th too?


Am I being weird? I'm being weird, aren't I?

I am, yes!But not until next year. This year, I'm being a marshal at the official leaving party at Goodwood on the 18th, which is how I've got the spot next year. Is cypherspace doing it this year?
But no, I'm not going to be in London on the 14th. <face type="sad" />

And weird is fine. Be weird. I like weird. (Also in a non-creepy way)

We complain when it's to hot
It rains and our capital turns into a massive fail.

Britain is Shit.
I will happily admit that now, on this here internet, public to the world, for all to see.

Fixed. There has been no massive fail out here in the provinces. But judging by the few occasions I have had the misfortune to visit the capital, I will happily agree that London is shit. And to think, I almost accepted a job there. *shudder*
