As we were leaving (late) for daycare/work this morning, I was thinking to myself what a lovely sunny morning it was out. I almost tried to fish my sunglasses out of my purse while driving, but thought better of it.

As we were going south on the highway, I remember thinking, "wow, it's getting really gray and dark out. Next thing I know it's splat, splat, downpour. We hit this really heavy band of rain. The kind of heavy rain that gives no warning, but all of a sudden you have almost no visibility and you're trying to remember where all of the lights, windshield wipers, and back windshield wiper of your rental car are (Skye Captain got a bit scrapped up the other week and is in the shop until next Monday or I'm borrowing a Nissan Rogue). It was crazy how hard and fast the rain was coming down. Almost like we were in New Orleans or something.

By the time we got to daycare, we had moved past the worst of the rain, or it had moved passed us, but it was still raining enough to get us pretty wet (I'd left my umbrella at home). By the time I got to work, it wasn't raining anymore.

I was out with friends at a pub. It was nice enough out (and very loud in the pub) that we all decided to move outside to covered table. We were having a great conversation and it was nicely warm, with a warm breeze. All of a sudden there was this really cold wind and the temperature just dropped. We started to hurry inside and as we were walking in these huge rain drops started falling. From the time it took us to walk across the room to the door to the parking lot, it had pouring out. I made a mad dash to my car and started driving home in the pouring rain. It was raining so hard that at times it was hard to find the lines on the road. There was really intense lighting too. One time when I was at a stoplight I could have sworn that it was hail that was hitting my car.

What really sucked was that I had to go grocery shopping before I went home or we'd have no breakfast tomorrow. Luckily I got a spot close to the entrance to the store, found the umbrella that we keep in the car, and was able to dash to the store without getting too wet. By the time I finished my shopping the rain had stopped. The roads were still wet on the way home, but not too bad.

I'm soaking wet!!! I was walking in the rain to work (well, from the parking garage). it was nice, but i wish it was lighter so i could have lifted my head up and really enjoyed it. there is nothing like been cleaned by Mother Nature :) I just wish I could have found my cloak this morning :(

If the idea of baths came from bathing in streams/rivers/ponds, where did the idea of showers come from? was it the rain or waterfalls? I want to say the rain, but it usually doesn't rain hard enough for a real cleansing shower (at least by my standards). probably was both.

so, i have my adonis's e-mail address and my sis says he will be in Boston on saturday so I should e-mail him quickly. aaahhhhhhhhh. I don't know if i can. I want to. really badly. i probably will and it will come across as stupid, but hey, that's something. i hope he checks his e-mail a lot. my sis went out to dinner w/him and some other people last night (how i got the e-mail) she said he mentioned that the time he kissed me on the forehead was the first time he kissed a girl at least three times. I guess it ment a lot to him. why why why why why did i never do anything w/him??? oh yeah, b/c i was a scared freshman and he shrugged me off when i cornered him that one time. WHY DIDN'T I JOIN THE SCI-FI CLUB MY FIRST YEAR OF HS????????????? maybe i would have had a chance with him then! he wanted me to. I think i'll beat myself up over this one forever!!! damn it. well, we can't change the past. or our hearts.

in other news, kiten got spectre to climb more on the structure aerith built. he actually was climbing around on it on his own (and looked like he was going to pounce on Swan's head *G*). The D&D game last night went pretty well.

Ok, i'm going to e-mail my adonis now, before i think better of it!!
