Come Rain or Come Shine

I always... want Chinese food / jump on leaf piles / let my dog lay on my lap
I sometimes... meow like a cat / lock my keys in my car / invest excuses
I never... wear pants / swear / make my bed. 
Inspired by "The Madness of Mundanity" hosting a giveaway!

I also was tagged by Trishie at Under Lock & Key in a fun photo tagging game! The rules of the game are:

1. Create a new post:
2. Open your 1st photo folder
3. Scroll to the 10th photo
4. Post the photo and the story behind it
5. Tag 5 or more people!

Haha, this is me on my FIRST day in Sydney, or even Australia at all. I had met my (now) Aussie boyfriend while on vacation in the UK, and on a spontaneous whim decided to fly to Australia to see him for a month! This was my one-day stop-over in Sydney.

I got there and it was *literally* THE coldest weather they'd had on that day (October 22nd, 2008) in 16 years-- record breaking! It was cold and raining like crazy! 

I'm lucky that I even had this long-sleeved thin sweater because I don't even wear warm clothes much. And, SILLY ME, I didn't think to bring an umbrella or jacket or boots to an Australian Summer!

Anyway, I was exploring the city on my own, and this is at the Botanical Garden/Parliament House, where it started pouring HARD. I ended up drenched. It was fun though :D

Okay! I don't have many followers, but I'll tag some of the reads I enjoy!:

Hey Laura, thanks for posting your blog of facebook. Now I can stalk the crap out of you! Hope Oregon is treating you well. -Stacey

haha, whatever photo folder you want i suppose.
and i think the point is you're supposed to make a post on your page, tag the person who tagged you, and pick 5+ more people to tag. but whatever! :)

What a fun game!!! Thanks for tagging me. I went to Sydney over the summer for a 11 days with my sister... I absolutely loved it!! xo

It's easy to do 3 blogs, especially when you only post in them about once a month. ;) I'm trying to get better about updating my personal blog, but I'm not doing so well.

That picture just cracks me up.
