Ah, Britain. Good old reliable Britain. It’s the middle of June, we’ve all bought new shorts and t-shirts for the summer and we’re confronted by what we in the office call “Murray weather.” I like the rain. I’m half Scottish and half Irish, I wasn’t built for the sun. However, I know that I’m in the minority and that for most people this weather is enemy #1, so here are some of my tips for enjoying the weather!
#1: Stand outside and embrace it
Ever seen a rom-com? Then you’ve probably seen a man standing in the rain, face to the heavens, water streaming down his face like a river of passion. As long as you’re prepared for it and you’re near to your house so you can go in and dry off, spending a minute or two in the rain is refreshing and wonderful!
There’s a host of new movies out. If you haven’t seen it already, Jason Segel’s new Muppets movie is absolutely fan-flippin’-tastic. The critically acclaimed, Academy-Award-winning film The Artist has just come out. Daniel Radcliffe’s horror/thriller The Woman In Black is apparently a must-see for those who like to be terrified. And, of course, One Direction’s new DVD Up All Night: Live is out if you’re into that sort of thing. In short, we’re spoiled for choice as far as what to watch goes!
We’ve got a ton of things to make sure you have fun this weekend, ranging from the technologically brilliant AppGun game to the old-fashioned fun of the Level Head game. The AppGun lets you stop an alien invasion in your house and Level Head is basically playing Jenga on your head, and there’s no way that’s not fun.
#4: EURO 2012
Come on, really? You didn’t see that coming? It’s the quarter finals and, with the notable exception of Greece, every team left in the tournament has a respectable chance of winning it. Yes, even England. Believe!
