#145

Saturday Oct 2nd - Late evening.

At first it was a single drop. It burst in the yard like a crown. Was that rain? I thought. And then it came down in huge sobbing blobs, and then faster and harder. And then the wind drove in from behind and up above fantastic things were happening. And now the rain swept down in sheets and cut the city up like a guillotine. And with each slash, lightening exploded and thunder clapped and little fires erupted and sizzled along telephone lines. Tree's snapped in two and blew away and already sirens rang out in all directions. The city was under siege. The storm had begun.

    The Nerdettes, who collectively have memorized every famous person's birthday ever, inform me that you were born on the exact same day, month and year as their 'absolute favourate pop star'

  6. To All...

    Please excuse the delay in posting. It's not intentional or to keep you in suspense, just having huge troubles writing today. Not a block, kind of the opposite.

    There will be two posts and hopefully the first will be posted within the next hour or so.

    The Real Tristram Spencer. X
