Hail Zoomy

I need to become a meteorologist and understand exactly what causes hail, and then do something about it so that it stops happening as regularly as it is around here just lately. You'd think that the existing meteorologists would have done something about it by now, but I'm almost certain that they all got into that career thinking it was about cool things like meteors and space, not boring things like weather, and now they're too disappointed to fix the hail. I'll add it to my to-do list.

Would you listen to that rain outside?

I'm all in favour of April showers, but April continual downpour all day every day? I tell you, if I was the kind of person who complained about hosepipe bans, I would definitely be complaining about hosepipe bans right now.

It's the Doctor's birthday!

I stumbled across the information that it's David Tennant's 41st birthday today, so happy birthday to him. I still wish he'd come back to Doctor Who, good though Matt Smith is, because he was so completely perfect for the part. I feel guilty about saying he was my favourite Doctor ever, since I'm such a big fan of the original series too, and I really ought to pick one of the classic seven Doctors if I don't want people to think I'm one of these modern types who's never even watched the old series... but there's no avoiding it, David Tennant was the greatest.

I am from space

My "I am from space" T-shirt is a huge source of amusement to everyone who sees it. I don't think anyone actually recognises the reference, though, so click here, please.
