Perfect Combination: Rain and the White Stripes

This past week, Central Texas has been covered in sheets of rain. I love rainy days. They're a wonderful break to our normally very hot days, and I love having an afternoon where I can be lazy and nap while it rains. Well, after six days of rain and mist and "spit", it is safe to say that I am ready for the rain to be OVER. Okay, so I tried doing some research, but I really couldn't find any facts or numbers... but we've had inches and inches of rain. You're just going to have to trust me. It's been raining A LOT. Saturday night I went out in rainboots. That's how intense it's been. I was like, "I'll be the cutest girl at the party... even in my boots", and I don't know if it's because I'm a senior, but I've kind of started to feel like I can do whatever I want to and it's cool.

Anyways, this morning I was leaving my environmental lab, and I stepped out into the spitting rain without an umbrella, and I couldn't help but play the song "The Air Near My Fingers" in my head. Oh I love the White Stripes... except when Meg sings. Ugh, sorry Meg, but you are the worst. Please let Jack sing. Okay well anyways, when I got home I couldn't help but think... The White Stripes are the perfect band for a rainy day... they just have this energy that really compliments the crisp, wet air.

So, next time it rains... or right now, put on some of Jack & Meg's music. GO GO GO!
Yeah, NOW!

My favorites:
rag & bone
the air near my fingers
little cream soda
the hardest button to button
effect & cause
black math
