All Work and a Little Play

This is what I'm currently working with right now that I must say I've put off until the last possible minute.

I am currently posted up in my nook writing this blog post when I should be focused on PR Cases. I think the fact that it is the end of the semester with one week of actual classes and then "finals week" AND the fact that it has rained off and on for the last four days is making me less productive.

Thankfully, I have this.

This is cup numero dos this morning. It is the fuel that will have to keep my motivated. So while I procrastinate to the fullest and try to steer clear of Tylenol articles and PR jargon, I will tell you a little story.

As I said, it has been raining here for about four days. I'd show you the picture I took of my "front yard", but dang Blogger won't let me upload photos once I've done it the first time.

Saturday night the roommate and I rented "The King's Speech." Loved the movie. It is a definite must-see. After the movie was over, the roommate looks at me and says, "Let's go get some Dorito's."

First thought: It is POURING outside. This is not an understatement. Pouring down rain. But I think ok, we can take the movie back to Red Box at the Kroger right next to our house and then swing in to get some Dorito's.

So we suit up to brave the elements. My outfit was the most creative I could come up with. Sorority letters rain jacket, gym shorts (cause pants would have not made it two minutes in the monsoon) and rain boots. The roommate chooses a rain jacket, shorts and tennis shoes.

As soon as we step out the door, it's like the bottom of the sky fell out. I mean it was the craziest thing I'd ever seen. The parking lot was somewhat flooded, lucky for me I had my trusty rain boots. The roommate's feet did not fair quite as well. Her shoes were soaked within seconds.

Somehow we made it to the car. Both of us covered in water. And drive to take the movie back. When I'm safely back in the car and thinking she is going to park to go in and get the must-have Dorito's. We take off down Highway 10 in the monsoon. I was mind-boggled.

She says, "I just want to go to a gas station to get one of those little bags."

Well the road was completely covered in water, there were maybe four cars on the road, and there we were tootling down Highway 10 in the WORST rain I've seen in a while. Clearly the road was flooded, but we pushed through to get to the gas station.

We left the gas station with the smallest bag of Dorito's and a little packet of Ranch CornNuts (both for the roommate), and we head back to the apartment. As we drove home, the only thought I had besides how stupid we were was the fact that we would go out in torrential rains to get a mini-bag of Dorito's on a complete whim.

On a lighter note, Happy May everyone. So glad May is finally here. School is almost over, and then the fun begins. Now back to PR Cases. Blah. Have a great day.

Until next time...
