#155 Suma suma suma tiiime

This week has been unseasonably warm here in the UK. I say unseasonably because I'm pretty sure it isn't usually this nice in summer. What we're therefore experiencing is a heatwave. As a result, I've been turning up to the office more or less soaked from head to toe. I might've missed all the rain but it sure is hot on the underground.

The climate probably doesn't do the bucket shakers much good. Their prospective donors are now more aggrivated than usual and saving up for their summer holidays. One veterans charity has taken to reminding passers by that there are soldiers who have literally had their balls blown off in conflict. When it comes to the art of persuasion, it seems like they've pretty much nailed it.

I'm struggling to think of one single thing that has become fashionable this year, let alone this summer. Back in `14 the girls got into that luminous orange/pink coloured clothing. It surprises me that some kind of virtual pet hasn't taken the mobile world by storm. I suppose today people are too busy tending to their social networks to take care of eggsy. So busy in fact that making time to feed and water themselves is a game in itself.

Fortunately all commuters are aware of the importance of staying hydrated during hot spells, thanks to the posters put up last year by old goldilocks. I don't follow politics, which is good because if I did, I'd have arrived much earlier at the realisation that Osbourne might well be the next PM. You know, unless there's an election or something.
