it has been torrential downpouring since about 2 last night! this rain is severely interfering with my thrifting/crafting plans for the day. oh well, i loved it while i was trying to sleep. sometimes that's the best. perhaps this is the day to start on a new book. i just finished kurt vonnegut's slaughterhouse five last night. i had pretty high expectations because so many people have said it was good. it really was! i definitely recommend it.
