Aberdonian rain

It's absolutely belting it down here in Old Aberdeen. I think it could even be hail. And to think I don't have an umbrella and I left my Gore-Tex coat at home. Damn fool am I. Looks like I'll be staying in the office all night, which does at least mean I might make some progress with my palaeontological research. All I want to do is travel the world looking for weird fossils, but will anyone let me? No, apparently I have to get funding. Well, I will get some funding and just watch me go when I do! I'll be smashing Silurian starfish out of the Australian hills before you can say "Blu Tack - The Original Re-usable Adhesive"
