There was also a little bit of lightning (one or two bolts, no thunder that I heard) and lots of wind. The wind was actually so strong that it broke one of the umbrellas we had.
Anybody else get caught in this, or did it only last the few minutes it took us to walk to Hungry Jacks?
I heard the start of the rain, bucketing down as Paprika ended and Ryan came out to bite the heads of those who'd turned off the food vending machine to power their laptop....

Which was true. There wasn't so much as a spit of rain when we exited the building. I think we were the last to do so.

Always buy cheap brollies. Not such a pain when they break in the bad weather. And if you're like me, you keep losing the damn things. Or busting them with patented lack of motor skills (aka wanton clumsiness).

We were trying to avoid Hungry Jacks tonight, mostly because Atory doesn't like going there and we felt like something different. We were aiming for Nandos in Hindley Street, but the bastiges close so blutig early that we ended up going to Maccas on West Terrace. From whence Atory ended up walking back to the railway station. Hope he got back before any of the weather struck again....

I don't know if you're being serious comparing Paprika to those films.

Just do what most of AJAS's lesser members do. Don't wash. Anything. *sadly ring-of-truthlike attempt at humour at AJAS's expense*

It did sound pretty heavy before I walked back into the room after the Utawarerumono special had finished. But as was said before, by 9.15 all was pretty quiet upstairs.

the main reason for me going was to get some second-hand RAM, the socialising was only secondary
I'd usually avoid having to travel anywhere in weather like this. Probably contibuted to numbers being lower than normal at AJAS. That and the fact that Movie/OAV nights tend not to be as well-attended, anyway....

Me and Jason left at 8:55pm. There were major pools everywhere but nothing falling. I think we just managed to beat whatever you guys copped.
I think Mendes liked Paprika.
Not as good as Perfect Blue, Paranoia Agent or Tokyo Godfathers, imho, but still quite a well-animated film, and a little confusing. But then, Satoshi Kon doesn't like doing things the normal
way. That would just be giving people what they want.
Another thing: we finished earlier than we usually do (normal playlists push us around 9.10pm), which probably didn't help. Had we finished at the normal time, everyone would probably have missed the weather....

I would normally say that my cloak of blubber protects me from the cold. It certainly has done so in years gone by, but after my spinal injury I've felt the cold like never before. Apparently not uncommon for nerve pinching and/or damage resulting from spinal mishaps.
