Rain, rain

"Rain, rain, go away
Come again another day."

I never liked rainy days when I was a kid (except maybe when school got cancelled during black rainstorm warning). But lately I've found myself growing a strange kind of affinity for it. Maybe it's the intriguing melancholy that shrouds the city, or the calming pitter-patter against the window, or maybe it's simply that your umbrella shields you from the world and you can spend an entire day walking around the city making zero eye contact (it really is a strangely pleasant feeling).  

But you know what I love most about rainy days? 
The sweet, warm smells of cookies (I've got mint chocolate chip cookies in the oven), a good book (currently in the middle of Lolita) and jazz (Tony Bennett is playing on Pandora). Speaking of Tony Bennett, I really should do a post sometime on all the duets he's done with the latest crop of pop stars - Lady Gaga included!

In the mean time, it's back to some good ol' reading in bed.
