* yaaaawn *

Oh god... so tired, so bored, so... rainy outside. Now, to elucidate upon the previous sentence... I am runnin' on 4 hours of sleep thanks to the coffee house which has once again ruthlessly exploited my talents and self without asking permission... so bored because I am currently at home, in cambridge, bored out of my skull and no one is online... so rainy outside is kind of self explanitory. However, the entire context of this rain must be considered. At 6 a.m. I walked into the coffee house registering the following:

Hm... Grey.
Little blue?
Maybe it'll clear up.
Oh yeah, door.

I get inside, I start to open, I blast some I Monster, and stumble about while working. I found a note from Kari telling me she wanted me to redo both chalk boards because it's a new month for one and the other one has two bits of obsolete information and I did such a good job last time...[thought bubble] for every extra task you give me I shall KILL you!!! [end thought bubble] ...that she was sorry the place was a mess because she had a party there the other night and did the best she could in a hurry so if I could just check and make sure stuff is ok and do these leftover dishes...[thought bubble] okay... so death it is. [end thought bubble]... and that she'd be back at 8:30 with the Sams order so I should make room in the fridges and be ready to unpack it around that time... [thought bubble Triple death... sounds like a weird kind of ice cream. Or murder or something... at any rate this woman must have a death wish. [end thought bubble.] So I was obviously a little irritated. Well, I went to open the door because during my little inner-monologue bitch session I had completed my opening duties and it was now 7 am and time to open the door...I happen to look up and notice, to my astonishment that was is darker at 7 than it was at 6. For a brief moment I wondered if I was still dreaming, and then concluded that I must simply be crazy. That is, until the sky opened up and dumped the whole of the great lakes onto the coffee shop. It was really impressive, because the creek is already at our dumpster but within 2 minutes of the beginning of this torrential downpour, which went on for a good hour, there was a waterfall spouting out of our back door and a river in the road. And while the road is under construction and most of the water was contained in rushing rivers down the sides where the sidewalks and gutters should be... pretty soon, even the 6 inch slab of concrete that is the road itself was lost in watery oblivion. I was deeply amused. It's rained just about every single day... and ... hence... "so rainy outside." That's all for now.

All that rain you got...once upon a time flooded almost the entire state of Iowa. Oh, how I hate downpours. A little sprinkle, even a storm or two isn't so bad. I'm afraid we'll need to start building an ark or two soon.
`Get those animals out of the muddy, muddy...

I was just saying that like... 20 minutes ago... that if it's raining tomorrow... i'm gonna take that as day 7 of fourty and start building an ark, because i can't tread water for more than a half hour.

Do you think Home Depot has enough wood to build us an ark? And if it does...do you think Pet Co. has enough food to feed the animals? And does Sam's Club have enough bulk food to feed the humans???
And if not...can we just eat the animals? You know...take a long an extra chicken or ten?

I think that'd be alright... but i'm thinking that once it rains enough we wont have to worry about paying for it... and it'll float up to us ... afterall, there is air trapped inside crates and stuff... if not... we should invest in scuba gear.

Scuba Steve!
Shouldn't we start building The Ark (snappy name, eh?) before everything starts floating? Although, it might be kind of interesting building a large ark-thing while decked out in scuba gear floating over what used to be the Midwest...
