If you're looking to void your bowels, this is the pizza to get. Two diarreahs so far. Seems to be getting better. Not that I paricularly mind diahrrea anyway.
Been looking for flats in Edinburgh for ten days and haven't found a single property worth checking out. I know that they exist because I saw loads that were posted within the past 30 days but nothing in the past ten days.
So many shower rooms. What is this crap? Why would a fairly high end place even have a shower room? Or put another way, how do you justify the high end rent price when you have a shower room?
I told my lady friend about how I'm not going to get a place with a shower room and she said that it would indeed be weird to live in a place with just a shower but she could put up with it temporarily.
It's bad. I had two places with a shower room but I only lived in them for six months each. Of course, I usually take a shower anyway but it's nice to have the option. And those shower rooms are claustrophobic. And I do take a bath once in a while. It's particularly enjoyable in the colder months. Not that it really gets colder or warmer in Glasgow.
You always get these British people complaining about the weather. These are people who don't know what bad weather is.
Temperature extremes, as one finds in the US, are deeply unpleasant. Walking through a foot of snow when it's -20 degrees Fahrenheit, -30 degrees with the windchill is at least as bad as 95 degree Fahrenheit heat with 120% humidity, you have to slather sunscreen on, you can't be out more than a few minutes without risking sunburn or heatstroke, and even when you're indoors, it's so hot that you can't do anything, not even SLEEPING because all you can think about is how hot and uncomfortable you are.
This is what these British imbeciles who complain about the weather want? The only time it's okay in much of the US is during spring and autumn. Because it's mild. The UK is mild all year round. Eternal spring and autumn. You can't beat that.
And then there's the rain. "Boy, it sure does rain a lot in London! You can never forget your umbrella in London!"
This is not rain. I went years without an umbrella in London and got along just fine. Yes, there's sometimes a slight mist but it's not the downpours that one finds in the US where if you're out for even ten seconds, no exagerration, you're going to get completely soaked. And the thunder and the lightning.
I might have heard thunder in the UK ten times. And it's not the terrifying booming that one gets in the US that sets off car alarms. I don't think that I've ever seen lightning in the UK.
I wonder why the rain dynamics are so wildly different here. I'm not finding anything on Google. No tornadoes here either. How many times have you been blown into the street because a tornado was coming? Or ran in terror because a tornado was coming and lost your shoes during the process but you couldn't go back to get them? Zero, I'm betting. But it's happened to me in the US.
I mean really, fuck off with this, "Boy, the weather sure does suck, doesn't it?" talk.
