NOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!

Say it isn't so! My weather email came today predicting ONE HUNDRED PERCENT chance of rain tomorrow! NOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

Tomorrow is the MultiFaith Fair that I've been planning for months! It's my hugest thing of my internship and the thing I was completely in charge of. And it is outside. And if it rains, there's no backup plan, it just gets cancelled. That's it! Kaput!!

ARRRRRRGHHHHH!

This is not allowed! We've worked too hard - and it was going to be so cool! With Mardi Gras theme and we bought all these beads and masks and fun stuff. And I got all these people to perform and sit at tables explaining their religion. It was going to be so much fun!

Surely, between the 15 or 20 faiths represented, SOMEBODY has got to have some pull with the Almighty!!

Of course, our Secular Alliance will be able to have a big laugh at all of us. :-)

And I'm sure Pat Robertson would say it's because we are glorifying false religions.

This SUCKS! Pray for sun!!! I know God can do it!!!!

It's because you're glorifying false religions.

WOW! What an honor to have a visit from Mr. Robertson!

(but we aren't glorifying them...we're just letting them get up and sing a song or chant or dance...it can be enjoyed it purely for aesthetic value, I hope)

I am so sorry. But perhaps the collective organizing of the event still will mean something to those involved, even if you can't do it tomorrow. Can you postpone? I know you will have to cancel since it is already pouring here in Orange County. Good luck.

Pat Robertson said...

Well, there's your problem...somebody must have been practicing a rain dance.

Damn it, girl - quit glorifying false religions!

Pat's damned me! I'm doomed!!!

I'm afraid it's all my husband's fault. He was blogging that he was begging for rain, at the very same time you were pleading with everyone to pray for sun. Obviously God loves him better than you, at least today :-).

He says he's going to be praying all week for more rain, so we have a reasonable wildfire season and waterfalls (he likes to hike).

You're being punished because you failed to observe a rule which fell out of the printing proofs of the first Bible, namely Thou shalt not praise God on a Monday.

Early commentators thought this might be that He didn't deserve it after inventing Mondays.

This entire exchange, from Mr. Roberston's rain dance comment to Joel defining himself as Lynne's husband, had me giggling into my coffee as my toddler and 10 month old climbed on me attempting to tear me away from the Feminarian. Never! A giggle this morning was well worth fighting my kids off for a few moments of coffee and banter. Thanks all. :) Now onto music class, IKEA, walking in the rain, and other priorities of those under three years of age.

Well, I hope it came off -- it's been clear here in Pasadena since 8:00AM...
