We've got a big ball of yellow burning stuff in the sky and it hurts the eyes to look at it... oh, wait, it's the sun. 
Persons intending to travel by open carriage should select a seat with their backs to the engine, by which means they will avoid the ashes emitted therefrom, that in travelling generally, but particularly through the tunnels, prove a great annoyance; the carriage farthest from the engine will in consequence be found the most desirable.

That you've gotten to see that at all makes me jealous. We haven't seen that thing in ages ;)

Our snow had all been washed away by rain, but now we have a fresh couple of inches with more coming down. Its the light fluffy sort, though, so I'm okay with it.

Damn it! I think it's been pinched.
I knew if it stayed outside long enough, some bugger with have a way with it, on their toes.
Can someone send me any spare fine weather they bottled for a rainy day please?

See, that's what happens if you leave something unattended for too long, some light-fingered little bugger comes along and *snap* it's gone, just like that. Same thing happened to my sanity a few years back.

That reminds me, I've got some slightly used sanity and a big pile of weather here, anyone care to make me an offer?

Well, I had copious amounts of man-flu, free to a good home, last month but no one at work took me up on my generous offer, even after I put adverts on the notice boards  :D

  • Are we evolving? No. We're starting to learn again
I can see it now:

"Greetings, good ladies and gentlemen of <insert name of workplace here>! A lovely fellow by the name of Influenza(he's a foreign fellow) is looking for a temporary home. He rather enjoys traveling through cold places, and, being a rather sociable fellow, he happens to enjoy sharing his presence and company with several people at any given time. He requires quite a bit of food to stay strong and healthy, though if you need him to go away you might simply starve him for several days. Might anyone have a place in their hearts for him? Inquire at<insert phone number>."

Personally, I blame those chavvy Martians. ;)
Oh...my old war wound? I got that at The Battle of Dorking. Very nasty affair that was, I can tell you.

Maybe, though they might think it hot, considering lack of atmosphere on the planet weighing 6,421 x 1023 kg
What a crazy random happen-stance!

Well you're talking current martian conditions. What  if they evolved on the surface before the planet lost it's magnetic field and was stripped bare by solar radiation, moving to underground habitats more suitable for them?
