Anyone who has been in the UK over the last couple of days will know that it has been a bit breezy. Specifically the strongest storms for 17 years, killing 11 people, leaving thousands without power and causing hundreds of millions of pounds of damage to houses. Whilst this is very sad especially for the bereaved it is important to focus on the real tragedy here, which is that the wind has taken the cover to my beloved table tennis table. Even though it was tied on and everything, this evil zephyr has ripped the cover away and left my poor ping pong table open to the elements. What is worse is that I'm flying to America tomorrow for Lotus' annual beanfeast Lotusphere2007 so I won't have a chance to get down to a sports shop and buy a replacement cover for over a week. I'd bring it into the living room but I don't think Ali would approve.
