Wind up

30Jun10

I have a namesake hurricane. This is exciting. According to the BBC “Alex sweeps in”, which sounds grand. But according to the (more geographically relevant) Houston Chronicle my alter ego is just “plodding”, which might more accurately reflect typical Alex behaviour. We do tend to plod doggedly though.

Apparently Alex is a category 2 hurricane. For people nearby this is a good thing I expect. At a personal level I’m disappointed. It means that when I meet people called Andrew and Katrina etc they may feel superior.

Fortunately for all Alex will probably not hang around for long. We never do. But it would be best not to be outside when Alex arrives.

  1. Never mind Carmen Sandiego, you should start “Where in the world is Alex?”
