Really Random Wednesday

I try to walk to work most days. It's about 2.5 miles and since I'm not a morning person, I really don't become awake and aware until I'm at least halfway there. It's easy, mindless exercise ... unless something wakes me up.

Yesterday, the weirdness of my city woke me up.

First, this: probably the safest - and weirdest - way to lock up your bike I've ever seen, but (a) how hard is it on the tree, and (b) can you imagine getting that thing down in the morning?

The rest of the walk was pretty uneventful. The students are back at the University of Penn, and I'm just appalled (and feeling my age that I'm so appalled) that so many of these girls think flannel pajama pants are not only outdoor wear, but classroom wear. Huh?

Photo stop at one of my favorite not-particularly-affordable boutiques for this really cute jacket. I love all the detailing, and I think I could probably put something similar to this together from some of my various jacket patterns.

Add one more thing to my endless List of Things to Sew.

Work was quiet, which was good because the coffee just wasn't kicking in. Somewhere around 10:30 a.m. it started getting dark, and I started worrying about the leak in my house.
I was in one of the offices looking for a file that was hiding from me when I saw the clouds starting to roll in, and I had to go back out to my desk for the camera so I could catch this shot of Approaching Doom.

Or at least approaching rain in my house again. Now it's two buckets, and because it rained, the roofer didn't make it over today. I think tomorrow's forecast is better.

Maybe the weirdness levels will be down, too, and I'll be able to make it to the office without waking up.

Holy cow, that looks like a cartoon sky! I expect Godzilla to pop up between those buildings any second!

The girls at my son's high school wear pajamas to school - and my son would too, but I won't let him! Kids!

Honestly, I thought the exact same thing Rachelle did! I'd be tempted to enlarge and frame it!! Really.
