I suspect that the naming is consciously benign in order to deflect from the severity of the storm

The names are not so much benign as wet-blouse girly, and inversely proportional to the severity.

I've heard that storm Tarquin might be the worst to come.

I think you may be looking at this from the wrong perspective, Roger. I suspect that the naming is consciously benign in order to deflect from the severity of the storm, and thereby reduce fear and panic. And with that in mind, I have begun taping up my windows and sandbagging the front door of my fourth floor flat in preparation for Storms Percival, Dolly and Everard.

I'm sure the person who gets the naming job, names them after in-laws and past dates that went badly wrong.

Who gets to name storms? More importantly, how do you apply for the job? The last two storms to hit the UK have been called Dudley and Eunice. This is pathetic. I mean, take "Eunice". Two thirds of this name consists of the word "nice". Who on earth is going to be concerned when told that Eunice is approaching? I'll start getting worried when Storm Genghis Khan is on its way. Or Storm Attila the Hun. Or Storm Armageddon. But "Eunice"? I'm more likely to prepare by making some cucumber sandwiches.
I want the storm-naming job and---given the current weather---I'll happily take it on for a tenner a go.

Rest assured, I have never shared my wordle result on Facebook. I did today share Youtubes of Rocky's Eye of the Tiger and Katy Perry's Roar to bring in year of the Tiger. I'm fun like that.

Ah, that is perfectly acceptable behaviour. :)

It's not for me. I quite enjoyed the first handful of times I tried it, but then got distracted and didn't go back. Failed the crucial 'can't wait to get back to it' test, alas. But then I started to see people posting their 'successes' all over social media, and was glad. I didn't know what they were before - now that I do, it makes not doing the same so much more satisfying than actually playing the game. Please tell me you're not doing that, Diane?

I remember enjoying the little game with coloured pegs that probably inspired it. That was fun....

Just been bought by the New York Times Diane, eventually they will charge to play it no doubt. Had a go at it this morning, quite stimulating, I'm sure I felt the grey matter move.
