Dang, it's early

I'll say this right now -- I'm not a morning person. On my days off, unless I absolutely need to get up earlier, I usually don't get up before 10:00 am. I'm definitely an afternoon/night person. I've found my most creative time to be late morning - early evening. My creative side is still asleep till around 10:30 am, and any creative writing I do late at night is bound to be garbage. Naturally, there are exceptions to that, but that's pretty rare.

I saw a rainbow this morning. :-) I'm the type of person who gets excited over rainbows, rabbits, and robins. I take it you want me to expand on that statement.

I lived in Hawaii for four years, and since it rains there almost every day, there are a lot of rainbows. Here in Nebraska, we hardly see them, despite how often it rains. I like rainbows for three reasons. One, I love fantasy, and rainbows always seem to be a part of that. Two, I'm Catholic, and I was taught that a rainbow is God's promise that He won't destroy the Earth by flood again. Very reassuring. Three, I simply think rainbows are very pretty.

I know this sounds crazy, but my dad and I like to count the rabbits we see on the way to work. I live about 45 minutes away from work, and the most rabbits we've seen in one morning is 14. Today, we saw one, and yesterday, we saw four. The average is about three. We also like to look for Canadian geese and black squirrels, but that's another story. I adore rabbits. They're just so cute and cuddly. Mom likes them as long as they stay away from the garden.

I love seeing the first robin of the season. From what I understand, the birds around here that are called robins are actually thrushes, but no matter. They migrate and are some of the first birds to come back in the spring.

I think that's enough quirks for now. :-)
