THUNDER AND LIGHTNING! SQUEEEEE!!!!
Yup - it rained last night, and in the wee hours of the morning I caught flashes of lightning and the sound of rolling thunder. T'was quite fantastic, as rain is the only thing I miss about the east coast.
Oddly, it was the lightning that broke me out of my depressed reverie. When I go to bed my mind starts going, and, well, let's just say that Q gave me things to think about last night and I was horribly, horribly depressed (like near tears sad). I laid there thinking and thinking and thinking and getting more and more into it, when the room lit up and the noise came through and I jumped up and turned off my fan and looked outside and enjoyed it for a little while. Then I went back to bed and fell right asleep.
Traffic, of course, was horrible this morning. No less than four traffic lights out on the way to work. I couldn't imagine this town in the wake of, say, Katrina.
And yes, I'm feeling better.
A friend once asked me, "Why does everyone make fun of you?"
My answer was, "Because I allow it."
However, that doesn't mean you have to all the time, especially when I'm actually trying to be nice, and even more especially when I tell you I'm not in the mood.
