In search of

I am in search of a new perfect raincoat.
Barely seen here is my current perfect rain coat. It's black and classy and buttoned and the length that I love so that when one is wearing a dress (which I rarely ever am) it's like you're wearing a trench dress over it and it reveals another dress. I always loved that in movies. &practically every one likes it, almost to a fault. 

I really like it too. 

Sooo I'm looking for non-black. Because everything I have is black. (Or gray my favorite)
&that's not very eclectic.
Speaking of music, which that word always reminds me of, music.
I have been really obsessed with this song, 
which has sprung me into my much needed and sought after Roots phase. I've waited for it for a while. I stumbled upon the Things Fall Apart album because I'm now reading the book by the same title. Which is actually really annoying because it's written in HUGE FONT like the young adult books I fucking hate and it explains every single thing. The simplest dialogue and most common phrase is foot noted and in bold. So half the page is footnotes and half of the half that is actual writing is in bold, which is a bother, to say the least. It's like reading Shakespeare(which I'm doing) but every single word is foot noted and you can't interpret anything on your own! Not to mention it's written in extremely simple language, which makes the book almost condescending.

Did I mention I hate young adult fiction?
Here's something, when I went to Wordstock 2011 (WOO!) there were a ton of young adult writers there; to a fault, I'd say. I did hear a little discussion by the author of Crank though. That was alright.
That rant cut short- I don't respect young adult fiction. At all.

So off of that Tangent Train, back to my quest for my rain coat!
I think the universe is telling me something, because two days in a row, on my way home I've seen two women with perfect, and I do mean perfect red raincoats. How often does perfection come?
Not usually twice.

So here I go on this quest that I was going to get right into but then I got distracted and just screwed around on the internet doing nothing on my only day off and didn't find my raincoat. Or even look. Now it's the end of this day and I even missed the Simpsons. Also, my eyes hurt.
So there I go on a bitching tangent.

And here I actually go, finally, after 10pm, to find this raincoat, for under $60.
Wish me luck.

On a side note, my brother has been watching The Matrix for a solid three days. Just sayin'.
