Rainy Friday

It's raining today - again.

It has been raining here for over a month now. Really. My poor kid is sweltering in 116 degree Phoenix, but here, temps haven't crawled about mid 80's most days (which is crazy cool for summer in Houston) because it is always raining. Dripping. Drizzling. Pouring. Or some combination thereof. The sun rarely shines. It's been perpetual twilight. And if you can't tell, it's making me a tad cranky.

I will try to remember this when I am grumbling about the heatwave that I'm sure will eventually arrive.

On a more positive note, the constant gloom has given me an excuse to start making my way through season 6 of Gilmore Girls. Had seen some in reruns, but not all. So I never did know what the catalyst was for Rory to finally come home. Now I do. And it was a terrific series of events, let me say, without ruining it for anyone who will still watch. And if you haven't, you should! Some of the best written dialogue ever. Ever! Which is a lot to admit for someone addicted to all things Joss Whedon. But I'm admitting it.

Looking forward to seeing either Evening or Transformers this weekend. Maybe both. These are the choices one makes if one is both an unrepentant geek and a romantic. (In Star Trek terms this means my favorite episode will always be City on the Edge of Forever where Kirk has to choose between letting his love die and saving the world as he knows it... which is by the way the same choice Buffy has to make in the last ep of Season 2, more or less)

Til next time...

I am quite tired of the rain, too. A solid month of rain + overzealous summertime office air conditioning makes me go into winter mode. I miss the sky.
