It started raining and it forgot to stop
It’s been raining for three days. So it got cold, wet and unpleasant. New lakes have suddenly appeared around the city, preventing people from doing anything. Traffic jams, crowded buses and trams and trolleys, thank God I take the subway to get to work!

Other than trying to not get soaking wet, some of my friends have been enjoying other fun activities: Sim has been trying to keep safe as the sewerage on her street could not face the water, so the kind people that take care of it opened it up. Thus she got a street and sidewalk covered in water with occasional large holes to fall into. All of us have been enjoying the pretty site of rain pouring into the Pipera subway stop, as we were wondering if the whole place was about to fall apart. It didn’t!

I personally hate rain when it forgets to stop and move along somewhere else. Too little light, too cold to feel like doing anything, too much worrying about not forgetting your umbrella…Hopefully it will stop today or tomorrow at least!

Other than that, I finished Cartarescu’s second part of Journal and moved on t Thomas Mann. I only have time to read on my subway trip to and from work, but it’s still something. As for writing here, that got to happen pretty rarely in the past week and I hope to change that.

As for the support business, it’s a crazy world we’re living in! I’m still enjoying it, but I do have my moments when I could kill the customer on the other end with my bare hands. Instead I shout a RTFM as my colleagues (that’s read the f****** manual) so wonderfully do.

    salut, kayla!

    you might find me bizarre but i love the rain, i love the sound of it on the rooftop. but if it's continual and that prevents me from getting outdoors, that could be a bit annoying, hehe.

    ;)

    hey, i'd agree with bokbok, although i think romania has had more rain than the rest of europe together the last month or two...

    oh, and don't go killing your customers, you need them to pay your wages :P

    I love rain too :-D .. but then again, maybe it's cause here in Alexandria it probably doesn't rain half as much as in Romania... it rained last Saturday and I loved it...but now the weather is sunny and hot just as though we were in the middle of summer ;-)

    Well, guys, I love rain too! When I can enjoy a walk or stay in bed, with a good book and listen to it! But when it rains non-stop for four days and you have to get out there at least twice a day and everything is messed up, I start fantasizing about the sun...:)
