I feel once again it is time for a Blitz-report, as I have arrived at a neat tying-up point in many ways; a round newpage number, a round newpix number, a round hour at the end of a weekend, and the end of an album. All at once. It's like I planned it (I didn't).

Said newpage is 730, or 27.7% of the OTT; said newpix is 1670, or 53.8% of Time. I have had enough time to make reasonable progress in the evenings of the past weeks, when I feel inclined to read.
Having reached the page at which GnomeAnne informed me I would slow down, I have indeed noticed the lengthening of posts. We will see how this develops. However, I enjoy watching the molpy-hunting, and observing the other fine details that I have missed in my previous rushed and un-enlightened viewings of the OTC.

Replying to current-ish themes;
Whilst not strictly weather, yesterday I experienced a (minor) earthquake for the first time that I can remember. The UK is not particularly known for such events, and the last notable one was 10 years ago. I was lucky (?) enough to be almost atop its epicenter. It was a weird sensation, especially given my location in a small en-suite (windowless) bathroom on the 4th floor of a building. However, especially given no physical damage was caused to anyone or anything, I consider overall the experience to be positive.

EDIT: Really? Again? My blitz-post triggered another newpage. Ah, well, I guess I'll have to come up with a decree in the morning.

That is fascinating. I also experienced my first earthquake during my initial blitz.
I am going much more slowly than you, and have only gotten to NP560.

I had to do Big Suck battle with a wall of Spiders!
It was scary. It was exhausting. It is done. phew.

A wall of spiders? A WALL OF SPIDERS?? :shock:
Just the thought of that makes me want to hide, curled up in a fetal position.

Addams was going to be spiders. She just was. She wasn't proud of that, but it was going to be hard to not have spiders all over her body after all is said and done.

Oh, so you're another UK OTTer! That's nice to know as there actually aren't many of us. Off the top of my head there's just me, HES, Minim... and now you too! I have a feeling dawnfire might've been from the UK too... haven't seen them in a while but they made all those really awesome OTColourizations back in the day. Anyone else I'm forgetting?

Hi, present-version-of-someone-I-keep-reading-past-posts-of :D ! Yup, I'm another Englishman (albeit one living in Wales), and I'm pretty used to being in the minority on the bits of the internet I frequent. But I quite like it. I try not to pick up sayings/phrases more common to other versions of the language, but I frequently fail, or end up starting all my posts the same... (so far, 3/8 of my blitz-report posts have started with "I feel...". I should probably start changing that). Not sure if there's any more Brits in the past (or present), other than those you've mentioned.

There's ten of us on the map, but many names I haven't seen in a very long time.
