Buzzing in

The Pioneer Woman posted on her Facebook page "Rain! Glorious rain!"

I wanted to say something similar, then realized "glorious" cannot be improved.

I have so much on my head that I don't know where to begin to sort them out. The heat has been oppressing me; my mind and mood were tangled and cranky. Besides, school will start in less than two weeks, and I'm about to begin doing something entirely different from what I've been doing the past five years (details later). This new something entails writing syllabi, supply ordering, classroom cleaning, networking with people who have been doing it long before I show up...well, let's just say it's all a little pressing on my nerves.

But, rain! Glorious rain!


  1. Sounds like you need a visit.

  2. I've always been partial to "splendiferous!"

    My, that was a splendiferous rainstorm, wasn't it?"

    No, don't look it up - it isn't in the dictionary :]

    Good luck with your busy-work!

  3. I just wonder where the accent is placed in "splendiferous." I would like to bring it into my vocabulary. I like words outside a dictionary - it's anti-establishment.

    I know you're busy too! So there's good luck to you too.
