Rain drops keep falling on my head

How do I go about appeasing the Rain Gods? What is an acceptable offering to them?

I ask this because regardless of the weather when I leave the house, it invariably rains on me at some point during my excursion. Especially on the weekend – I can’t remember the last time I made a trip to the supermarket and back without getting rained on.

It’s gotten so bad that Moose was driven to ask when I came back from Waitrose today “what have you DONE to make the Rain Gods hate you so much?”

I don’t know, but I wish I could make it better. The sun was shining when I left the house and the sun is shining now – it is a glorious day – but for the entire walk to and from the supermarket it was sleeting on me 🙁

  1. Errrm, it good for the environment, or something…

    This is what winter is meant to be like, it’s just been freakishly dry down here for the last 3-4 years.



  2. What was the name of that lorry driver in Hitchhiker’s? Oh, wait, I’ve got internet I can check. Right, Rob McKenna. You could ask him for advice maybe. After all he was a Rain God.

    Yah, first to make the HGTTG reference. I feel fulfilled.

  3. Neko, I don’t mind it raining. I understand rain is good for the environment etc. I mind it raining vindictively. On Saturday the skies were clear blue ALL DAY apart from the five minutes I was walking from Waitrose to my flat. EVERY SINGLE WEEKEND IT DOES THIS.

    And umbrellas aren’t really practical when both hands are occupied with holding heavy bags of shopping.


    I should move to Ethiopia or something – at least that way my misery will be for the good of humankind.

    And Nils – good one! I’d forgotten the HtG2 reference! (Shocking admission though that is). I was thinking along the lines of Tom Holt and “Nothing But Blue Skies” with the rain dragons…

    Hey, perhaps I have a Rain Dragon in love with me?

  4. Oh, get over it already 😛

    Anyway, I only blame and cheerfully insult people I like, so really it’s a compliment 😀

  5. you know, weather patterns are very strange and no-one really knows how they work (at least accoridng to the shockingly bad thriller I just read), it could be Canada’s fault.
    sorry Jay. 😀
    I had some of the best times of my life in Canada, so I shall stop teasing now.

    And it really does rain for the 5 mins she’s out of the house, going to the supermarket on a weekend – it’s getting really weird now. She’s got her own little weather system. 😯

  6. I really like the idea of it being a rain dragon. That’s so cool! Did I ever explain my dragons in appliances theory to you?

    I might write a blog entry on it if I have time….
