"Trees and flowers await your love."

Do you love engrish.com? If not, you should. I'm not a big fan of the mocking part of it that sometimes crops up (ie, in the title), but the gathering of hilarious English makes me smile.

So, it's been pouring like water is going out of style today, and my Service Engine Soon light was on for the first time ever. The second question in my Saturn book regarding this problem is "Have you just driven through a big puddle?" Since the whole town has been a giant puddle, I've decided not to worry about this unless it stays on after I've driven the car a couple of times. Probably, the electrical system is just damp. Like everything else.

The secondary problem is that, while it has for the time being stopped raining, we are now under a tornado watch with potential storms moving in. Y'all know how unfond of stormy situations I am. If you aren't familiar, have we met? The work I have to do today is essentially finished, but I do have a reading to get to tonight, and some socializing out on the town later. Fingers crossed that whatever is going to happen is out of its system before I need to actually be outside. Otherwise, you know where I'll be: On my bed, where nothing bad can get me, under a blankie. That's right, I said blankie.

If it makes you feel any better about your light, the past couple times it's rained hard I've had a puddle in my car. Fortunately my seat's not gotten wet, somehow, but the driver side floor and roof get wet.
