I have an aversion to umbrellas

I had a pretty lame weekend. It consisted of a lot of laying around, being lazy, walking the dogs, and watching TV.  So here are a few random thoughts from the past few days.  You're welcome.

Last Thursday Indy got some crazy rain.  Like torrential downpours, something like nearly 2 inches in a matter of hours. You know those storms that roll in at 5am and make you sleep sooo good?  We had one of those.  Except at 5am I am trying to get into my car to head to work.  And I ended up in my car looking like this:

Why didn't you use an umbrella, Jenny?  Because I hate them. It wouldn't have mattered if I had used an umbrella or not, my pants, socks and shoes still would've been soaked due to the sideways downpour and the giant lakes made of rain that I stepped in. I was completely drenched.  It was not a good look for me.  Luckily, I was able to get a change of pants when I got to work.

But that reminded me why I didn't like umbrellas.  I have an aversion to umbrellas because I always think I'm going to be that girl with the flipped out umbrella looking like a complete idiot. Then when you use one, you've got to carry it around all dripping wet. So I just don't use one. Just give me a jacket with a hood.  And I will just stay home when it is pouring rain.

Friday I was feeling crappppy, but like a good student, took my cute new binder and went to the library to study.

New binder.  Cute, right?
I had a pounding headache, but still had all my stuff spread out on one of the tables in the library and was sitting quietly studying.  Then a girl sat across from me that apparently had a cold.  Ewww.  And I could hear her eat EVERY.SINGLE.BITE of her sandwich because she chewed it with her mouth open.  Then she proceeded to get a piece of gum after said sandwich and loudly smack the piece of gum.  I nearly lost my mind. 

Instead, I plugged in my earbuds and logged into Pandora.  But I could still here her smacking over my music!  So I had to blare it.  With a pounding headache.  And count down the minutes until my lab started. 

Shoot me.
One night when I was walking the dogs, I walked out my front door and looked at the white concrete wall that separates the front of our townhomes from the busy road and saw little black things all over the wall.  What.. is... EWWW

Yup.  An army of slugs taking over the world have arrived in Indiana. They were literally crawling out of the wet ground after all the rain we had gotten. Don't say I didn't warn you.

Sunday night was the series finale of Dexter.  I can't believe after 8 seasons it is actually over!  But I'm glad that some of my favorite TV shows are about to begin their fall season premieres! 

Speaking of fall, I can't believe it's finally here!!!  Fall is seriously my favorite.  I love everything about it.  I'm totally upset that all of my harvest and Halloween decor is still in Alabama, but I do have pumpkin and apple cinnamon scented Bath & Body Wallflowers plugged in that are making the house smell absolutely delightful!

I hope everyone has a great week!  Remember, today is the LAST DAY to enter to win the leather heart bracelet from Children with Hair Loss!  EASY ENTRIES!! 


  1. haha so in portland, they say you're not a true oregonian if you use an umbrella.

  2. YUCK! Those slugs are like a scene from a horror movie!!!!

  3. Those slugs reminded me of the movie Slither. Much grossness.

  4. Umbrellas are seriously annoying, but if I don't use one I end up looking not so business professional by the time I walk into work!

    I love fall though! :)

  5. omg this post is just full of things that shouldn't happen. Umbrellas.. ugh, I do't use them either. Slugs? fml. and a season finale? psh, get outta here with that. I feel your pain!

  6. YUCK! slugs! and what did you think of the dexter finale?

    Vodka and Soda

  7. umbrellas are so annoying and pointless.
    i'm sad dexter is over but secretly happy because it's one less show to watch and it was lagging the last few seasons anyways. but SAD seeing him cry :(
