Friday Genius Ten “Rain Is Less Depressing When It Ushers In Fall” Edition
No big theme today. Today’s song to run the iTunes Genius function off of was picked simply because it came up on my random generator last night, and I love it. (Lauren from Feministe turned me onto this cover.) But it does suit the amount of rain we’ve had this week, because it’s created a rather slow mix. Of course, all this rain has meant that it hasn’t broken 90 all week, and just recently it was hitting 100 nearly every day, so it’s more a blessing than anything. This has meant people have been exclaiming that they’ve been able to wear a) jeans b) long-sleeved but light shirts and c) sneakers with socks. Joy all around. Leave yours in comments!

Videos and cat pics below the fold.
Only one cat picture, but I think this one’s adorable. I was sorting laundry, and made a pile of jeans and other stuff that doesn’t go in the dryer, and Dusty immediately burrowed into it.
