Mother Nature: 1 -- Wal-Mart Umbrella: 0
As long as I've lived in California (5 1/2 years now) I don't think I've seen weather worse than today.

It's cold. It's raining hard. It's windy. Man, is it windy.

Days like today, I really wish we had a cafeteria in the building. But we don't. Chris and I braved the storm and went out to Original Pete's for lunch.

The wind annihilated my poor umbrella. After being turned inside out five or six times the little metal rods were bent to hell and back. It was all mangled and pathetic. I had to throw it in the trash. It was a red umbrella anyway. I'd much rather have a black one.

The wind is howling loudly. It doesn't show any signs of letting up. There is a constant wail of police and abulance sirens as well. I don't think people around here are good at driving in these sort of conditions.

Plus it's cold in my office here. I'm wearing a jacket and a pair of cotton gloves. I had to cut the fingertips off so I could type. Chris says I look as if I could be on the street begging for change. Maybe I'll start a new fashion trend. We can call it "hobo chic".

All in all, I really wish I were home with a mug of hot cocoa. Five can't get here fast enough.

Eh, better make that four.

Three-thirty?

Current Mood: cold cold
Current Music: howling winds

Hey...if that fashion trend catches on you'd better remember where you got that idea mister and recognize!

That's all we need - next we'll have Prada and Gucci marketing to K Street-folk.

Points and laughs

Once again Wal-Mart has lived up to it's reputation of selling absolute crapola.

Sorry your umbrella busted honey. But this just goes to show why I don't believe in them and won't use one.

Men look ridiculous carrying any color umbrella anyhow. Toughen up kid :P

This has nothing to do with your Wal-Mart umbrella. Sorry!

I was curious to know if you'd seen the live journal commercial, and if so, what you thought about your logo being animated all cute like. I thought it was neat.
