  • This isn't just watersports, this is M&S freshly peed, golden delicious, warm and wet watersports.

  • Dear me.

  • I think the idea is you're supposed to say something about wees.

  • Balki, we members of the establishment do not talk about wees. Action, not words.

  • Ah, one day you two will make the most darling couple.

  • If I hear another person refer to the weather as "a bit fresh", I'll fuckin bottle 'em!

    I've been smiling at the folk at work and saying this :)

    Is this thread – cosy as it is – here for the benefit of non-domestic onlookers, to reinforce British stereotypes?

    For the record, as an englishman living abroad. I wear a T-shirt all year round, and cycle to work all year regardless of conditions. Between me and Eddie-the-eagle, we're keeping the rep of the Brit, as one one of toughness and stupidity.

    (inside I'm weeping gently though, cuz my ears are cold and my toes are wet)

  • Be careful out there, my friends... Just been out for a ciggie on the terrace and almost went arse-over-tit on an ice patch... It's just started snowing in SW2, let's make sure it isn't a bumpy night (in a bad way)... [/dad mode]

  • It's a bit fresh out there...

  • For the record, the stereotype I was referring to was that of constantly talking about the weather (which is of course a result in living in one of the Northern Hemisphere's windiest countries, and therefore most changeable climates).

    I wasn't discussing 'hardness', although seeing as it takes the human organism approximately 2 weeks to adapt physiologically to prevailing environment conditions, and our weather changes almost hourly, it would follow that we have to be 'hard' to deal with the constant discomfort of an environmentally maladjusted lifeform.

  • Just been out for the first time in two days and the snow is sticking. It's sticking!

  • Sticky snow is WIN snow...

  • It's even snowing in Canonbury. The snow favours no man and falls on the rich as it doth the poor.

  • What about the cats?

    SW2? Aren't you posh SE24?

  • .

    It is isn't it.

  • SE24 is one street over... I've spent most of my life in either SW1 or SW3... Low SWs 'til I die, baby...

  • Metcheck says feels like -10º tomorrow afternoon. Brrrrrrr.

  • Metcheck said it would snow last night.

    Haha. he locals here actually discuss the weather more than us. Thats despite the weather being simple here

    Wind from south west = wet as fuck
    Wind from north east = cold as fuck

    They alternate to create mad cycling conditions.

  • Thats some front.
