Longest night

I was woken up in the middle of the night by howling wind, rain lashing against the windows and water splashing from a broken gutter on to the driveway. At first I was puzzled, since I didn't think that there was monsoon season in Britain any more, but then I remembered: it's nothing to do with global warming, it's the strange cosmic impact of Wimbledon, which starts tomorrow. Better get the raincoat for work tomorrow.

When I was woken, I was dreaming that the government had come up with a mental scheme to pay for comfortably-off middle class people like me to buy really fancy bikes and have them funded by the taxes of those on minimum wage. But when I woke up it turned out to be true, so like everyone else at work I've bought an expensive bike. I fully intend to attempt to ride it to work at some point in the future.

In the future, everyone will be famous to fifteen people.

Hey, I've recently returned to the lovely Surrey since being at University. I was looking for a D&D group in the Woking/Guildford area, and noticed that you mentioned it in a previous post.

Is there any chance that you know of groups in this area, or are in a group with space for another player?

If you're scared of me being an axe-murderer, I can happily meet up for coffee for you or others to "judge" me. ^_^ Cafe Americano does amazing bagels. ^_^

Unfortunately, they are closing down. :-(

Thank you for the help, though! I'll continue my search.
