LDN and sogfest

This song has been playing over and over in my head for 1+ weeks. I include the video so you can hear the song and also see some springy blooming trees, daffodils, and Ms. Allen's yellow muppet-skin coat. All of this video hunting led to me listening to more Lily Allen, which is no chore. I like her sweet/sour point of view.

I worked today (Easter) and it was S L O W, but that was fine. I found that there are still baskets of poems around for all of poetry month. I picked up a Mary Oliver and the famous William Carlos Williams plum poem. (the plum clipart was so round and so purple.) I found a million more things I want to read, but that's the nature of the business.

SOGFEST: remember last week when I said Portland would be having a week of not-rain and how happy everyone was about it? Well, that was last week. It actually shook out to be a generally overcast week of not much rain + one glorious day (Saturday). Today started the serious rain; according to the evening news, the meteorological term for what is to come this week is SOGFEST. In a sogfest the good days are the ones where the rain isn't blowing sideways! But coming this next weekend is the promise of another sunny day.  I'm freshly outraged every year when this happens. You'd think the sogfest would no longer be a surprise, but I think for sanity's sake we drive it out of our collective memories.
