Just sitting on the streetcar here, heading downtown. Christ it's hot. Fucking blazing. Sunstroke next, probably.

It was lovely at 4am.

You have a stronger constitution than I. Hope your hike was a good one.

Well if you love September so much why don't you just go and live there

Because then everyone with September birthdays will rapidly age and die including my mum (and I'll also have to fork out for a present every 4 weeks) while the rest of us never get any older. Actually that would be good, and Mum had a good innings so OK.

You're basically turning into wildlife at the moment, aren't you? Eventually other people will be out trying to get pictures of you. Or hunting you for a trophy.

I would like to point out that in less than 2 weeks, the nights start drawing in.

The short summer nights are shite for us amateur astronomers. Not that any of you care of course.

You should move down here, ours are longer, there is far, far, less light pollution and the summers are not shit.

I've never been there but i genuinely do not understand how they grow any food, there doesn't appear to be any soil and there's not enough rain for things like rivers and lakes that they could use to irrigate crops anyway. Yet there's fucking millions of people there. What am i missing?

They have invested to some extent in desalinating greenhouses but I guess they import a chuff load of food.

Climate change innit.  Milder summers, milder winters, but more of those storms named Jim and Harold and that.

The most depressing thing is looking at the BBC weather icons for each day of the next fortnight and they're like light grey cloud with one raindrop, dark grey cloud with one raindrop, dark grey cloud with one raindrop, dark grey cloud with two raindrops, dark grey cloud with one raindrop and some sunshine out the side fucking hell get the factor 30 on, dark grey cloud with one raindrop, dark grey cloud with one raindrop, dark grey cloud with one raindrop, light grey could with no raindrop (will change to dark grey cloud with one raindrop by the time we get there)

Got me jumper on. Indoors. June.

If we all coordinated, couldn't we just blow this weather away? You'd think these days with Facebook and Twitter it would be easy to mobilise millions of people to blow into the sky.

I also have my jumper on indoors and for me it is also June. I’m not putting the bloody heating on though.

I'm seriously fucked off with this ceaseless fucking rain.

On the plus side, at least there are no flip-flops to be seen (or, worse, heard) and all the shit tattoos and mealy flab normally revealed when Brits get some decent weather are mercifully concealed.

I'm not usually superstitious, but... that summer when Umbrella by Rihanna was out (2008): rain.
The summer when they implemented a nationwide hosepipe ban in April (2012): rain. The summer when I bought a convertible car (2016): rain.

I heard a song on the radio the other day by Kieth Urban, called Drop Top - but I've checked and it came out last year.

Heheh.  Just treated myself to a new pair (1.45€ local supermarket).  Very restrained smart black. 

I live in them in the summer.  Usually end up with a flip-flops foot-tan.  My last pair, lovely green ones, oh I loved them, actually wore away so I ended up just having the toe bits, hence the insane extravagance.

flip flops are great. "it's summertime baby", a message spirited up through your legs, from the earth itself - a little wink, little tickle "hey bud, it's summertime baby. don't worry about it, NICE LEGS!".
