OK friends; I hate to talk about the weather, because I feel like only boring people who have nothing else to talk about discuss the weather. However, in case you’ve been living under a rock our country is experiencing the terrible Hurricane Irene. Which, as a side note….every time I hear about hurricane Irene, I want to start singing the “Come On Eileen” song, and insert Irene where Eileen is, which I know is totally messed up, but that’s how my brain works. Deal with it….or stop reading my blog. Anyways, we are experiencing a true tragedy here in the United States, simply based on the fact that it really is hard to dress for a hurricane. So let me do my good deed for the week and offer those living through Irene some fashion ideas, while I reside in the heat wave going on in Orange County and complain again about having to make sales calls in my bikini. Here is your national fashion cyclone tracker, including designer umbrellas and more:
The light Up Umbrella
OK, call me a geek, but I like this one. I kind of want to get an Orange Light Saber one, braid my hair into balls around my ears and go around saying “Luke, I am your Mother.” I really like the rain, but most people do not, so at least this will provide some entertainment to the sad folks on a rainy day. Since winter is right around the corner I may just order one today. You can too….just Click Here to go thinkgeek.com where you can order these.
Convertible Rain Coat
I have never worn a Yellow Slicker, and probably never will. Yellow is just not my color, and should I ever make it to Niagara Falls some day I refuse to be one of the duck looking people in those ugly yellow rain coats you probably buy for $20, which costs 2 cents to make in China. I’m thinking I need to set up a booth at Niagara Falls and start selling rain coats for the fashion inspired. This one is great, it’s a purse that turns into a biker looking slicker. It genius. Those who know me well know I am obsessed with QVC. Right after I am done writing this I am writing QVC to let them know about this great idea. I haven’t seen anything this awesome since they created Heely’s and put wheels on shoes.
I know you are going to find this hard to believe, but I actually have been accused of having my head in the clouds before. Probably one of those days I forgot to take my ADD medication, but regardless, I think having your head in the clouds can be a good thing from time to time. If you can’t get lost in your own thoughts, and just enjoy hanging out with yourself, who will you be able to enjoy. Even though I am not a doctor I am writing you a prescription to get your head stuck in the clouds at least once a week, and if you need a device to help you I suggest you buy this.
The Rain Condom
There is probably a reason god has never enabled me to get knocked up on accident, and my theory is that God is just not that mean. Letme esplain….. I saw this picture and thought how funny it would be to have a kid, and make it wear a Condom rain jacket like this. Plain mean? Yes. Downright funny? Definitely. I also have drawn eyebrows on my dog. Don’t judge. Nothing funnier than a dog with eyebrows….or a kid with a condom slicker umbrella.
So that’s it. Rain and hurricane gear for all people and personality types. You can send me your gifts when you are dry and enjoying life. Enjoy your perfect storm!
