I Can’t Stand The Rain


Ann Peebles – I Can’t Stand The Rain

OK, OK… Enough is enough. It’s been raining for two weeks straight here. A month, if you don’t count brief intermissions. I mean, this is seriously starting to get on my nerves. I feel like a fucking goldfish in a bowl. All that’s missing is someome throwing fish food at me. There’s more water in the air around me than on the ground and it’s freaking damp. You know the dampness that seeps right to your bones no matter what you wear? Well, this is it.

I’m getting cranky from all the water around me and you don’t want to be near me when I’m cranky. A couple more days of this and I’ll start violating other people’s human rights and there won’t be a thing anyone will be able to do about it. I mean, if it were up to me I’d pass a law limiting bad weather to two, three days in a month. But who am I kidding? Even if it passed we all know the state of the rule of law in this country. Fuck!.

An umbrella? It don’t matter if you have one or not, because it’s raining from all sides. Even upwards. I mean, seriously, people! If I wanted to go for a swim I’d board a plane for the Maldives. But the way things are now, I’m actually thinking of joinig the Jehova’s witnesses and dragging a raft on top of Šmarna gora (livecam), a hill near Ljubljana. Yes, it’s that bad.

You don’t believe me? Go see for yourselves. Visit The Firm’s website and click “Poslušajte v živo” (center page). There’s a panoramic view of Ljubljana after noon local time. And it ain’t pretty.

  1. Hehe, when i read your words, i got s fleshback from Forrest Gump where he describes rain in Vietnam. Couldt find the clip, though.

  2. I would tell you how to survive such weather if having to walk around outside (first-class shady-side-of-the Alps experience), but something tells me what you really need is Sun.

  3. Well, I know who to dedicate our song ‘The Rain Suite’ to when we’ll play in (by then a hopefully sunny) LJ… :mrgreen:

  4. Iva: excellent point! 😀 except that today, there is 5cm of snow on the ground and it’s -7! wtf! you don’t hear me complaining though, i’ll take snow over 8months of rain any day!!!!

  5. WHAT!?!? it’s below zero???? the world has gone insane! well as for here, i’m not bragging as much as P is … i’ll take rain over draught any day 😉 hehe … hey, it’s fall (still officially), what do you expect? it just rains. 🙂 the sun is on the inside. 🙂

  6. @dr. Arf: Forget the suite. You’ll need a friggin symphony for this ❗

    @Adriaan: Snow. Ice-picks. Frogs. Anything but this. Really! 🙂

    @Iva: Well, that’s why all Canadians I know want to move here 😉

    @lisa: Eight months? I thought waterboarding was forbidden?!?

  7. Hey, I just got here from belgium and loved the weather. I barely remember what blue sky means…but here sun all over primorska today, the fog only covering Ljubljana…Never forget, that it can also get worse.
