Inclemency

Ah! Bad weather, finally!! >:) Well, not in proportion to the calm that preceded it, but bad enough to suspend operations. And one should not be too picky :D. Almost froze my arm off taking this pic by the way :P.Interesting things have been happening. The other day this humongous thing called a sunfish got caught on one of gunstrings. I imagine it gave the gunners quite a fright as is got dragged onboard along with their gear! This had to be the ugliest thing I have ever laid my eyes on :-&. It's like this massive, massive fish with no tail. I really don't know how else to describe it. I mean, it's got a fin sort of thing, but that's more like a rear end than a proper tail. There are no scales, just slime and barnacle infested skin. (Which was sending up a suitably strong freshly-rotting-barnacle stench.) And a couple of flappy ear thingies.. which might have been more fins. Anyway, I refused to take pictures. It was too ugly. And too dead :|. Had to pose for size comparison as the onboard MMO clicked away though. I haven't gotten around to seeing the pics yet, but I think most of them would have me clamping a hand over my mouth and nose :|.I choose not to mention cricket, the world cup, the Indian team, dead coach(es?) and other such (respectively) depressing, painful, disgusting, horrifying things in a completely selfish attempt to avoid agony.
