#014; I thought April showers brought May flowers? This is just more…

May 13, 2009

..rain.

I am tired and cranky today and nothing seems to be capable of making that better. I’m not sure why. It’s been a chill day, and after getting over an awful fever at the end of last week, I had a nice weekend. I think I’ve decided to blame it on the weather. This rain and the gray, cold clouds that have accompanied it haven’t let up in DC for days. And they’re supposed to stick around until this coming Sunday. I’m powerless to battle them and their cranky-making ways.

Which brings me here, to ask you: what do you do when the weather is just too strong a foe? How do you enjoy the rainy days of spring without going stir crazy or driving your roommates up the wall? I can’t think straight to work on grad school applications these days, and work research can only hold a caffeine-addled mind for so long after the work day is over. So help me out, cyberspace, what’ve you got up your sleeves?

    April is the cruelest month, but May in DC is just pissy. I’m planning on curling up with some combination of sugar, caffeine, and my laptop, and telling the rain to go screw. Spring just isn’t my favorite, but hopefully this’ll just cool the city off for some more sunshine. Of course, then you get the Summertime blues, and there ain’t no cure for those.

    I go to yoga class or I have a chai tea latte at work. Go work on those applications at Busboys or some friendly joint. It will pass!

    JR: I’ve tried yoga before and it was a bit too… Psychological for me, if that makes sense? It was the Bikram studio in Dupont and they were very into ‘delving into our pasts’ and ‘being in the moment’ – I just wanted an mp3 player to drown it out and they wouldn’t let me! We ended up at Busboys last night and it was just perfect, thanks!

    Brander: At least it rid the city of tree pollen early!
