Currently, I’m sitting in my office in a really tall building, and my office is a lot closer to the clouds than I would like to be (I’m basically IN the clouds actually). And that is because the thunder and lightening rocking and rolling right outside my window is freaking me out a bit. Luckily, I don’t have to go outside in it because I drove today (the whopping 3.5 blocks) knowing that this afternoon thunderstorm was on its way. I am one big sissy (literally and figuratively) when it comes to the rain. I really, really, REALLY don’t like getting rained on. Even sprinkled on. And everyone is always like, “but you’re from Oregon, you’re used to this stuff!” No, my friends. Just because something used to happen on a fairly regular basis in my state of existence does not mean that I ever was, or 3.5 years later currently am, used it. There are a lot of things that happen on a regular basis that I never get used to…. scalding hot water from my kitchen sink, thatjerkfacerobmarciano on CNN weather, and how nasty mashed potatoes are… just to name a few.
That prior paragraph is a very long way of saying, “why is it raining in L.A.? It’s not supposed to rain so much here, I might as well move back to Portland!”
But the rain is not actually the reason I am posting. I am posting because apparently Snowmaggedon Round 2 is hitting the “eastern seaboard” as they say, and that could cause some major complications for my trip to NYC tomorrow. My plane ticket is expensive but reimburseable. My hotelroom is expensive and nonrefundable. The reason I’m going (to be in the audience on the special Martha Stewart tall show) is priceless and irreplacable. This girl, who can’t stand a little bit of rain, is prepared to get snowed on and freezed on (?!) to be on this show! Did I mention I don’t even own a proper coat or sweater for 18 degrees? I don’t even care! I will get hypothermia before I will miss this show!
Please, please, please nature, United Airlines, and JFK, don’t let me down tomorrow!
