Out of order

It was all rainy in SD over the last couple weeks. Rainy like it never is in San Diego. It was great. I felt like I was at home, and realized just how infrequently it's like that here. It was familiar in a physical way, and crazy, like I didn't know I'd even been missing it. I was in such a good mood. Pretty much just because it was raining. And after school BJ and I sat outside on the porch because the rain was so fun. It didn't occur to me that it was a little odd, us sitting outside and enjoying the rain. In San Diego. We're dorks.

This semester, Thursday is the end of my week.
and after tomorrow, I have a series of long work days.
I feel pretty good, dare I say plucky, even. I don't know if that's the best word.
It conjures something of a bird-like image when I say it out loud.
Like a really upbeat bird of some kind. Something that preens.

My nose is perpetually running and my ankle is still swollen, but these things seem to have no effect on my good mood.
It could be to do with the rain.
Or maybe cherry cider with whiskey before noon is the ticket. Or guacamole.

King Lear is a good play. Hmmm...
I've seen a lot of plays recently. Good plays. I feel lucky to have friends whose line of work it is to be good in plays so that I can come and see them. That's a pretty sweet deal for me. But I'd probably still be friends with them even if they weren't any good.

They are, of course. But I like to think I'd be charitable with my friendship even if that wasn't true. It would be wrong to be fickle and only be friends with the good actors. I mean, I can't help that it turned out that way in this instance, but that wasn't really my doing, now was it?

Rain makes me giddy in a way I can't quite explain. I think that's why I liked living in Washington so much - the weather pretty much made me happy all of the time. It's been raining like crazy here in Maryland for the past few days. It's been fun, but it's supposed to turn into snow tomorrow. Gross.

i would kill right now for some rain. there is absolutely no air ciruclation in this library and it's 80 degrees outside. which makes it so much hotter in here. i've taken off my shoes and socks already. crazy sf weather.

Where did you see Lear? He's of some relation, you know. Where is he now?

Sorry to hear of your cold. Is there anything I can do?

Oh, you know what to do, you Princely tease you!
Where are you hiding?
I know there's all that royal duty and the like to consider...
so I'm willing to be understanding, and am also willing to settle for lavish gifts via mail until the timing is a little better for you to come and get me.
