I think someone forgot to tell nature that it's JULY!!! Its cold and wet in NY as well. Raining AGAIN. It poured all night... and yesterday. And nearly every day (I'm not exaggerating) since school let out. I think we've had ONE day that the temperature reached above 80*. So much for global warming. And for those of you who complained about snow on April Fools'... I seem to remember seeing snow in MAY here.

I live in a tiny little hamlet that nobody's ever heard of, that ceased to be a villiage proper when the post office closed down because the postmistress retired! My hometown's main attractions are the two bars. Get kicked out of one? Walk 15 seconds up the street and you're covered for another few hours. Actually, we do sadly have another attraction that clogs the streets with tourists twice each summer: antiques. The number of antique shops in my general area (I mean within about 5 minutes drive of my house) should be illegal. As for the idiotic tourists who park in front of my driveway to go INTO the bars after they've spent all day walking through the middle of a state route in front of traffic... they should be arrested or something. Just for annoying the locals.

I have come to the conclusion that, of a vast majority of forums I have seen, even ones that are supposed to be more internationally based, this one really breaks the borders of that. We have folk from all o'er the globe, much more than other places, and are very far from splitting into our own respective national cliques (or are they called 'ostentations' now?). As we are all intellectuals (save myself, who is more of a dreamer) we all carry on more as if, rather than the forums being international, they are simply universal, which is a very respectable trait.

Son of Numenor: As a neighbor of ye Marylanders, I've never considered Maryland to be an "Eh, we're mediocre" state, especially since I have to commute there so often. You know, there might be enough Downers living in NC, Maryland, VA, and along the East Coast to have a East Coast BDers' Meeting...hmm...

P.S. To you Marylanders, if you ever see a bright red PT cruiser (in something that might be called 'mint condition') with something that looks like a shimmering silver cow-cather on its front drive past your home, ignore it, because it's completely unimportant.

Heh. No one beats Bergen in rain. The normal amount of sun in july around here is seven days! We'we had two, maybe three. And instead of snow in the winter, we have rain. Maybe, if we're lucky, we have one day of snow. But the morning after, it's gone again. A few days ago it rained so bad that our satellite dish went out for about an hour. It's not fair!! (Yes, I am complaining a lot, but this is a topic that needs complaining.)

I won't complain too much, since I rather like my climate. For a sneak peek at the weather in Fea's life: June to September is summer. The weather is normally hot, sunny, and all around summery, with late night thunderstorms and the occasional late afternoon downpour. September to say... the end of October is the most beautiful autumn in the world, if I do say so myself. All scarlet and golden,with gentle breezes or wild gusts, depending on the hour. Its rather common for us to get icestorms on Halloween, and then winter lasts until April. Now I'm hearing Americans complain about rainy winters, well let me tell you: I'm a New Yorker. Central New York. That means lake effect snowstorms dropping multiple feet at a time. That means screaming winds and hellish fury power-outages. And mixed in between, we get ice and rain storms to leave nice invisible layers of ice under the snow. And that's the winter I love. We've got some two monthes of spring after that. But winter is the longest season here, starting with light snow in early October, progressing to blizzards and fun snow, teasing us with an early January thaw, and then freezing us back indoors until midApril. And we get the occasional May snowstorm. I LOOOOOVE New York. (Except for right now, when it's late July and I'm wearing heavy sleep-pants, a longsleeve shirt with a shortsleeved over top, and SOCKS to keep warm. And I'm still chilled.)

Fea

Because of quite unexpected changes in my life, I'm leaving Belgium for at least a year, moving to Dublin. I was wondering if there are any Irish Downers for that matter.

New York and loving it. Go Yankees!

I've lived on Long Island for the entire duration of my not-remarkably-long life. My town has a Native American name no one from out of the area can spell. It's uneventful and a tad dull, but it's a nice place to live.

That sort of book amuses me so, so much. It's like the Cockney Phrase Book, or The Little Book of British Cool, the latter of which is written by an American. On one level, they're amusing, on another they're...painful.

Now, that would depend on what you think is cool! It would have to be a bumper book for me, but I don't think most people would find it so very cool. Basically, anything which is meant to be cool generally is not, in my opinion - for example, pavement cafes, in Britain, in this weather? A nice cosy old pub with a dartboard and a resident labrador, now that's cool. Or rather, lovely and warm...

Oh don't get me wrong, I love this strange little island and despite the weather, I am not sure I could leave it for ever ... but it was just that "cool" brittannia thing was so embarrassing..... when we try too hard we fail miserabley .... It is the crazy anachronsms I love - the fact that something called "Swan upping" goes on quite legally each year on the Thames, that the entire railway system is brought to a halt by those leaves falling so unexpectedly from the trees each autumn.....

Oh, but I love the power-outages. We had a huge one over the summer, and a good part of the city nearby -- NYC, that is -- was out too. All the streetlights were out, there was none of that irritating glare from the lovely metropolis, and it was a clear night. I went outside and laid on the driveway and looked at the stars -- I'm not used to seeing very many because there is always so much electric light to hide them. But so many were visible; it was the most beautiful thing I had ever seen.

Why, Yankees? Why did you have to go from a 3-0 game lead to a brutal and humiliating massacre at the hands of Boston? A better question: how?

Woe is me.

Ah, but it takes real cool to make an art form of social awkwardness.

I don't disagree, but that's mainly attributable to its adoption for political purposes in my opinion (Oasis at No 10 and all that). For my money, though, the UK tops the world in music and comedy. Of course, I may be biased.

Yes, as a daily commuter to London, I must say that I really love that.

If people just told the truth where it says "location" we wouldn't need this thread. Not that I mind. I just had to think of something sort of on topic to say so I could tack on something off-topic...

How 'bout them Yankees?

ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha

They practically have an all-star team, they had a three game lead against a cursed team, and they STILL LOST!!

Not that I hate the Yankees (I root for them sometimes), but I was for the Sox this time- it was great to see them finally beat the Yanks.

So to all of you around Boston- congrats!

To all of you around NY- you'd better go out and buy yourself some better pitching.

'British cool' was always 'English cool'. (Did I make that point before?)

How about the tiny, little book of modern Scottish wit? If anyone finds that one, it's probably all lies.

Yes, as a daily commuter to London, I must say that I really love that.

Well Little Britain is my current favourite but I have to say that Frasier would rate pretty high in all time rankings ... but even my Kapellmeister friend said that London was best for music .. oh sorry you meant "popular music" :P

to reprise and adapt an old skit " At least you have trains, all we have is buses between Basingstoke and Woking...."

Let me see...

I was born in Great Lakes, Illinois, moved to Adak, Alaska when I was 3, and a year and a half later and ever since, I've been living in Muntinlupa, south of Manila in the Philippines!

Now, comedy, that's something British that's properly cool! Let me see...The League of Gentlemen, Reeves & Mortimer, Monty Python, The Office, Blackadder... but then one of my favourites, Father Ted, is Irish. Our music has gone rapidly downhill though - or is it my age? I have been reading about The Fall today and the thought struck me that a band as strange simply could not happen these days

Britain's weird character is OK by me, after all, it did produce Tolkien and in particular, Hobbits!

Is this getting a bit..jumpers for goalposts-ish?
