Day 523: Reunion time

By lara, lara@trippingonwords.com

 

Those of you who have been reading the blog since its inception (mom) or anytime thereafter (dad) will remember a couple reunions of claire and my college friends. This weekend is yet another…San Diego baby! SO excited it’s obscene. Unlike Claire, I haven’t seen most of these people since last December when our friend got married and it has been a LONG time.

 

It’s going to be a good weekend. A lot of eating, a lot of lazing about, and a lot of talking. There will be some clubbing thrown in, but most importantly, I have finished my first exam, and spent the whole plane flight out so that I can spend the weekend not even thinking about work.  Yaaayyyy!!! Of course, if I keep procrastinating and writing blog posts, this might end up being a moot point.

 

I am also excited about the weather. Though San Diego weather is supposed to be crap for San Diego, it’s bound to be much much much better than the sleet-y rain falling on me in Boston last night.

 

In an only very slightly related note: what is the verb for lightning? If there is rain, it is raining. Thunder, it is thundering. Lightning? Is it lightning-ing???

 

Seriously. I’m baffled.

Lightning is an object. To my knowledge, there is no verb form. Though, dictionary.com says there is (http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/lightning). However, there are a lot of references in other definitions that don't quite stack up, so I'd take it with a huge grain of salt.
