    Rainy day? Dripping? Surely you can see the connection!

    Anyway, hometime for me - just been hanging around to upgrade our internet connection, 100mbps is such a nice round number

    Yeah I see the liquid phase of matter based behaviour reference sense in it, but I thought she was all delighted by the sunshine on her rainy day making her soul trip away-ay-ay, whereas drip away sounds a bit depressing, like her lifeforce is running out in a bad sci-fi where they legitimise the concept of life having a quantifiable and finite value akin to energy rather than being a purely abstract concept with no physical basis.

    Thank what I think.

    I hereby express an appropriate level of gratitude for your thoughts, as instructed. They were goodly thoughts.

    (Seriously, though. Have you broken your fingers or something? Are you just mashing the keyboard wildly and hoping the right words come out? Are you wearing a muumuu right now?)

    This is how I so often upset people. One day I will learn to filter my thoughts before they reach my fingers. That day has not yet arrived.

    Disclaimer, for now and ever forth: I never mean any offence. I am merely incompotent at judging social situations and restraining my oft-inappropriate sense of humour accordingly.

    Gotta say, I'm with @VeryPC Al on this one. I've always thought of it as 'trip' as opposed to 'drip'. I mean, let's face it, it was around the time when everyone was discovering acid again and it was trendy to make casual drug-related double entendres.

    Edit: BTW @sonofsanta - That Songs of Praise video had me crying with laughter.

    Stuff like this makes the world an interesting place.

    Don't go changing now.

    No on the muumuu, it's more of a smock really. I am typing with a broom handle though.

    I kind of want today's prize to be a muumuu now. If onesies can become fashionable, so can muumuu's (though we may not be the people to lead such a trendsetting fashion charge, in all honesty. I will concede that One Direction have more influence in that arena than, er, school ICT techs).

    Yay! Someone agrees with me.

    On this topic, it seems the world of internet lyrics transcribers are divided too:

    Zoe - Sunshine On A Rainy Day Lyrics | MetroLyrics

    vs.

    Sunshine On A Rainy Day Lyrics - Zoe

    I guess it will always be a mystery - unless anyone knows Zoe and can ask her, anyone?
