It’s been thundering so much here this past week.

 

I hate thunder….

It’s loud. It scares the living begeez out of me.

I hate it.

 

There are many cultures that are scared of thunder too, you know.

In Chinese mythology, they have a god called Lei Gong. He carries a drum and mallet to produce thunder. And he punishes mortals for secret crimes and evil use of their knowledge of Taoism.

The Japanese have a thunder god too. His name is Ajisukitakahikone (yea… I can’t even begin to say that.) When he gets into screaming and crying fits, it is said that he’s placed in a boat and sailed around the islands of Japan until he’s calm again.

The Incas had a god called Catequil who caused thunder and lightning by striking the clouds with his hammer.

Of course, in Norse mythology, there is Thor. His name itself means thunder. He rides around in a chariot with his great hammer (it’s not a hammer, it’s called something else). One of the most commonly known “Viking Gods”.

In Hinduism, their thunder god is Indra. Well really, the god of War and Weather. His weapon is a bow and thunder bolt.

And who could forget Zeus/Jupiter (Greek/Roman mythology)? The king of gods. The god of the sky. Thunder was his thing! And he definitely could get cranky.

 

I shouldn’t be so scared of thunder, right?

Scientificly explained, it’s the sudden increase in pressure and temperature from lightning producing rapid expansion of the air around and within a bolt.

Thunder is just the sound a lightning bolt makes. It’s like a warning for you to know it’s coming.

Shouldn’t I be far more scared of the lightning than I am of the thunder?

 

When it’s thundering out, I’m almost always hiding somewhere.

Waiting it out…

My birthday is in 10 days.

Most people hate their birthday at this point in their lives because it signifies getting old.

And even though I’m not the CEO of my own record label yet….

I get really excited about my birthday!!

And there isn’t very much I want for my birthday. Just to hang out with my family and the boy I love.

 

But if anyone asks, I want everyone in the entire world to use their turn signals.

be cool…

Have you ever heard the phrase ‘gut feeling’?

Well that’s me in a nutshell. Everything I feel has an effect on my tummy in some way. And the most noticable is when I’m nervous or worried or sad.

I don’t eat. I tend to feel sick. My tummy totally hurts.

It’s pretty horrible. And I doubt at this point in my life that it’s something I can control.

It’s part of how I handle things.

So… my tummy totally hurts today. I could be so worried out of my mind for one night and have it effect my tummy for days. ;-p

And people wonder how I stay small.

I’m not that great at “puttingit all on the line”, but she is far worse.

And you could argue (if you seen the show) that she’s a private detective that deals with the dishonest a majority of the time. So why should she wear her heart on her sleeve?

 

So I sit at work.

Veronica Mars playing in my right ear and listening to the rest of the office sounds with my left.

I don’t like being snuck up on.

 

My thought bubble for most of the day has consisted mostly of:

I miss him!

I wish I were sleeping right now.

I could use some coffee.

I would kill someone over a smore right now.

I’d love to be at the beach!

I miss Cali!

I need gas in my car.

 

It’s only 4:20 right now.
