Random. Totally Random. 25/28

Feb 25

A look inside my feeble little brain.

Melanie is totally to blame for my addiction to chocolate bite-sized rice cakes dipped in peanut butter.

Karen replied to my Twitter request for topics with many subjects.  One I considered was Pet Peeves, but I'm not feeling snarky tonight.  I'll save that for later.  The other was the epic battle: Rain vs. Snow.  Which sucks more?

In my world, the rain sucks more.  I kind of liked rain until I lived in New Mexico.  Rain scared the living creepy crawlies out of me there, and I'm not easily scared (well, except by scary movie trailers.  They scare me).  The landscape is not really amenable to rain, and I drove through roads that were way more flooded than I'm used to on many occasions.  I have since hated rain.  My yard is a lake, but not deep enough to warrant getting out my kayak.

I don't get days off for rain (my sister in TN says her kids do, though!). I get days off with snow. I love, love, love days off.  

I also love the "How Quickly you Gonna Get Up" song in the Nike ad.

Pam (no blog) from my SnB group tweeted that I should write about what would go on the ark that is clearly in order in this rain.  I guess I'd just try to fit my house in the ark.

I don't have much else.  I'm going to watch the women skate.  I liked watching the Canadian women's hockey team get their gold medals.  That was touching.  



  1. We used to visit AZ during monsoon season every year for about eight years. I’ll never forget – we rented a white car and the storm came through. The car turned a dark, pueblo red. Then, the rain came. In deep, beating, pounding thunks. I remember watching as the red turned back to white while the most beautiful lightning flickered across the sky. There’s nothing like the forks of perfect lightning across the desert.

  2. I love rain in NM. I love the loud lightning and thunder. I actually went out running in it this past spring. So refreshing and wonderful!

  3. I don’t mind the thunder, and yes, the lightening is awesome, and I even love, love, love the smell of rain before it arrives in the desert. It’s having to drive on flooded roads that freaks me out. Pretty lightening and awesome scents don’t assuage the fear of being swept away or effing up my car with too much water!!
