For the last three days, it has been entirely overcast in my neck of the woods while simultaneously being stickier than Spider-Man’s bed after a web-shooter malfunction at night. Clearly, some rain is on the way…right? I went outside, I looked at the grey heavens and I said “Hey some rain would be great right about now”.
The clouds stared back at me, shouted “NOPE CHUCK TESTA” and then instantly parted so that I could be vapourised on the spot by the searing heat of the star that we orbit. Fortunately, I got better. As for the rest of the week? Take it away Glenn!
If you can’t sit back and relax to Glenn’s soothing voice, here’s a round-up of the good, the bad and the just plain weird of the week that was:
