It’s raining and I’m wearing open toed shoes. It’s not my fault in some ways. When I packed on Friday for the weekend, I didn’t know it was going to be raining on Monday. I had the cutest outfit for today, black pants, strappy heels, and my new shirt with a little Asian Kickboxing girl on it. I didn’t have an umbrella. I didn’t have boots. I didn’t have an umbrella. I didn’t have a rain coat. So I sucked it up, and I am wearing my heels with pride. And now that I’m sitting at my desk, I have my space heater pointed right at my feet. With special thanks to Mike for giving me his GIANT umbrella to use for the day. He Rawks! I didn’t go into the office this morning. Instead, I met Lizz Wright at a local urban radio station for press and interviews. She is really nice and extremely talented – an AMAZING voice. Then it took me an hour to get across town to my office. When it rains, no one knows what the hell to do. I had a nice weekend up north in the Bay Area with Mike’s family. Lots of nice meals, and we did some fun sightseeing and saw some funny stand-up comics at a comedy club. We were supposed to see the Dodgers/Giants game, but it was rained out. The rain is following me everywhere! I went to Target last Thursday to buy some sun screen, and while I was in line, this kid was in a cart SCREAMING, “I WANT TOY! I WANT TOY!” Meanwhile, the mom is just minding her own business, emptying her cart. I was like, “Lady! Please pretend to care that your kid is screaming!” I have never heard such shrill screaming in my whole life, and I used to baby-sit. Talk about effective birth control. When it was my turn to pay, the cashier looked at me and said, “looks like you could have used this today.” He was a old man who looked nice, so I nicely said back to him, “oh, really? Why is that?” And he said, “Because your face! It’s so sunburned!” Um. I hadn’t been out of my office all day. I hadn’t been in the sun since the previous Saturday. So there was no way I was sunburned. It just goes to show that my face is so red that apparently even old men notice. I thought it was just make-up ladies.
