Rainbows make me gay

One of my favorite things in this world happens to be rainbows. They make me so happy. I know it seems silly, but it's true. I could be having the crappiest day and if I see a rainbow in the sky, I just feel happy. It makes me feel great for the rest of the day. That was what happened yesterday, I wasn't having a particular awful day or anything, but I was a little glum and driving on the freeway in traffic, then I saw this:
(I really need to start carrying my nice camera around)

I smiled all the way down to Provo. I even started singing to myself like a crazy person. When I was a little girl I loved the Muppet's and one of my favorite songs was "The rainbow connection". That was one of the songs I started to belt out. I couldn't remember all the words, but it gave me the same feeling I had when I would hear Kermit sing it as a little girl. It used to make me cry every time (I know, pathetic, I was a sensitive soul). Listen to it, rainbows make lots of people happy, even Blondie.

We have great impromptu sing alongs in our household. Complete with Sally on the guitar, and all belting the words to the rainbow connection. It's no Kermi and Blondie, but you are welcome anytime you are feeling glum.

rainbows make me happy too! Just 2 days ago I saw a rainbow that went across the whole sky and exclaimed to the friend I was with "A rainbow!!" she was like, "oh. yeah." then and only then it occurred to me that not everyone loves rainbows. But I DO! and I am glad you do to.

Debbie Harry is so awesome. I don't blame anyone who might have thought you were crazy, I've always thought you were a little crazy myself. Thanks for the story though it explains it all now.

Update: Debbie Harry stopped being awesome when Blondie got back together. Just so you know. It's sad ... like watching one of your mom's friends trying to rock out on stage. Hint: Your mom's friend(s) prolly sounds better.

I would like to see my mom or her friends rock on stage. But I get what you mean.
