Spring fever

The weather has been cool and stormy this past week. I don't mind this, as it reminds me of home. It really affects me in various ways: my hair reverts to its naturally curly state because the humidity is above zero; I start drinking a lot more coffee throughout the day; my sleep paradoxically improves, possibly because of the afforementioned humidity; I drop into dreamy reverie often, prompted by the scent of wet lilac, the sound of rain, or watching the clouds over the mountains to the west.

I also get a bit dippy, judging from the paragraph above.

I'm updating from the coffee shop on my iPod, so I can't add any photos. Recent fun things I've done include going to the Neko Case show in Denver, laying around reading novels, and buying my ticket to Seattle for my TWO-WEEK visit!

the best thunderstorm I ever saw was on july 4th in west yellowstone. so intense. I miss those kinds of things you don't really see around the NW.

This sort of thing happens to me too. The awkward bit is that it usually happens at the same time as everyone at work is getting depressed and cranky.
