It was pissing it down when I woke up, it's pissed it down all day, and it's still pissing it down now. I've been soaked to the skin twice, and my umbrella is on its last legs. Although I suppose it could be worse. I've just passed someone with a Sainsbury's carrier bag tied over their head.

In other news, Damian Lewis has been awarded the freedom of the City of London. He seems quite surprised about this. Personally I'm hoping this now means he has to protect if from all manner of eldritch threats. And possibly dragons.

What happened to the damn weather? 20 degrees I was promised, and it's bloody freezing, I'm sat here with the fire on. *grumble, moan, etc*

Right o'flist, I have a question. Does anyone know of a free graphics programme I could get hold of? Because I've only got Paint on this laptop, and while my needs are simple, they're not that simple. I had a sort of 'light' version of Photoshop on the PC which was ideal but I can't find the disc so assume it must have been C's.

There seem to be loads : - but I've never heard of any of them, so wondered if anyone had any rec's? Ta muchly!

Woah! BIGGEST feckin' hailstorm ever!

Have I got "Delilah" stuck in my head? *g*

Also, why did the weather see fit to present a monsoon-type downpour *just* at the minute I left work? On the other hand, it did result in the most mahoosive rainbow.

In other news, I has a package from Amazon, yay! I have To Dream Of The Dead and, er, I also bought
The Back Passage, purely because the synopsis made me laugh...
A seaside village, an English country house, a family of wealthy eccentrics and their equally peculiar servants and a determined detective - all the ingredients are here for a cosy Agatha Christie-style whodunnit. But, Edward "Mitch" Mitchell is no Hercule Poirot, and "The Back Passage" is no "Murder on the Orient Express". Mitch is a handsome, insatiable 22-year-old hunk who never lets a clue stand in the way of a steamy encounter, whether it's with the local constabulary, the house secretary, or his school chum and fellow athlete Boy Morgan, who becomes his Watson when they're not busy boffing each other.

...Boy Morgan? *cracks up*

So on the plus side I had the afternoon off. On the downside, they cancelled my train, the fuckers, effectively stranding me (what do you mean you've 'lost' the conductor??)

I had to walk all the way into town and get on an expensive bus (they're *so* much more expensive than the train, it's nuts) which took hours and hours going round the arse end of nowhere. On the plus side, I did see an amusing sign at the bus station warning of the dangers of bus enthusiasts. (or it might have been warning bus enthusiasts of the dangers of the bus station, not *entirely* sure...)

Anyway, I've only just got home, grrr. And the weather continues to be weird, sun one second, pouring rain the next, then back again. Stop it.

[ profile] suggsygirl, I've got your chapter, but I won't be able to look at it till tomorrow evening, is that ok? As I have to go out again...(if you want to send it somewhere quicker in the meantime I won't be offended, LOL)

Merry Midsummer Solstice everyone!

*stares morosely out the window at the driving rain*

So much for global warming. My shoes haven't dried out for four days now. I think I might be developing trench foot...

Hmmn. So I'm wetter today than I was yesterday. Was waiting for the train thinking the rain couldn't get any harder when we had a complete cloudburst. It was so hard people were yelling and screeching, and the tiny shelter had so many arms and legs sticking out of it, it looked like an attempt for the Guiness Book of Records.

Of course, it wasn't actually raining when I left home, so no, I didn't have my wellies on.


ETA: Ooh, it's just gone almost completely dark outside (it's lunchtime). Really, really weird lighting. We're either about to get thunder or zombies...

Walking to work in monsoon-like levels of rain is quite fun - right up to the point where you have to then sit at your desk with sopping wet shoes and socks, and clammy trousers. Ugh.
