singing along with the Beatles, because this isn't depressing at ALL>
I'm feeling sort of mellow, in a dark and mellow kind of way.
It's not that there aren't PLENTY of things to do on a rainy day. But the list of things to do shrinks dramatically when you require that they also be FUN and FREE. Because I am super broke and waiting for the Pell check (yes, again).
So while I'm waiting for the sun, I guess I'll listen to itunes, wash dishes, do my trig homework, and then go to the gym. I convinced my mom to go with me! I can't wait.
And the dead hamster's cage needs a cleaning, too. Wheee!
Actually, Helen and I have Frida checked out from the library right now...there's an idea for when she gets home from work later tonight. But, right now I'm just not very interested in it. Maybe because of the hype for a long weekend, you get left feeling disillusioned or cheated or something.
Don't people do cookouts in other parts of the country?
Oh! the rain!
[tell me to stop bitching! I was downtown at a WMNF jazz party just last night, and then hanging out with friends]
The other day, we were discussing whether or not we should go ahead and devour the storm supply in the pantry when Helen pointed out to me that we are "only into the G's and H's" as far as storms go.
So, consider for you listening pleasure, Octopus's Garden. It's on Abbey Road, but you knew that.
I'd like to be under the sea
In an octopus' garden in the shade
He'd let us in, knows where we've been
In his octopus' garden in the shade...
We would be warm below the storm
In our little hideaway beneath the waves
Resting our head on the sea bed
In an octopus' garden near a cave
