Random Installments: Episode 1

1. I HATE when the bottom of my jeans get wet in the rain.  It pretty much ruins my night.  I wish I was exaggerating.  I have a habit of always sitting on my feet, and when my jeans are wet and I sit on my feet, my butt gets wet, and being in class with a wet butt and wet legs until 10pm is really unfortunate and makes me hate being in International Business even more than I already do, because we all know that there are SO many other places I could be right now.

2. I babysat for a 4 year old weasel pig today.  We played with transformers for an hour (side note: can ANYONE actually make those things work? I really won't even discuss what a miserable failure I am as a transformer-fixer), until he got bored with them and insisted that I read 637 Golden Books.  By the end of the last book about trucks or firemen or something, my throat was raw, and I convinced him to choose a game.  Any game.  I needed my voice.  So, he chose "jail".  Basically, we took turns "handcuffing" each other and locking each other in his bedroom, then breaking out and running like idiots around the house.  I was definitely mid-tackle when mom got home.  

3. Southern Drivers + Rain = Stupid.  I'm not sure what it is, but there is definitely some sort of stupid switch that gets flipped in our brains when it's raining outside.  I'm totally among them.  There were some pretty substantial storms blowing through here today, and it was dang near impossible to get around.  I am pretty much always late anyway, but rain automatically adds at LEAST 10 minutes to my late-ness.  I really don't know how to explain this phenomenon.  But it's a fact.

4. I would be barefoot all the time if it was acceptable.  Which is sort of ridiculous if you're familiar with the absurd amount of shoes I own.  However, at any given point throughout the day, I will not have shoes on my feet.  Even at work.  With my suits and jackets and dresses... it doesn't matter.  I can't explain this one either.

5. This little girl is the cutest thing in the whole world.
