And very much unsolicited, if I might add.
April showers I can totally handle because they bring pretty May flowers.
But March showers make me feel grumpy and chilled and my limbs turn stiff and refuse to function normally.
Make no bones about it––not that I understand this expression...
But it fits.
We've been having such warm weather here in PA, that I thought, "Huhhh, I have to go out today, I wont need my jacket though...
Nahh...What's a bit of rain??
But golly gee, I couldn't have been colder in my sandals and thin sleeve shirt.
Alllll the day long.
Rain blowing sideways and spraying into my face despite cute black and white polka dot umbrella on my way to the grocery store.
Murky puddles stalking my poor, uncovered feet as I scurried across a parking lot to meet friends for lunch...and then proceeding to engulf them despite my best efforts to skirt them.
I could go on.
But I wont, because I'm pretty sure you've gotten the point.
So, despite the frigid gloom of the day I made every effort to enjoy the company I was with once I was warmly back indoors.
Have you ever had Pad Thai?
The deliciousness of this fresh, flavorful dish made every last drop of rain worth it. Almost :)
|I may dream of this loveliness tonight.|
My mango drink was yum.
They also offered Sticky Rice with caramelized sugar and bananas which I wasn't able to sample but will use as an excuse to go back. Very soon.

Love these ladies!
We then braved the elements to acquire some necessary sugar in the form of Ice Cream.
Yes, it did make me feel even colder but it was soooo good!
Now it's time for a little Costume Drama-esque news for you:
Did you know that following the success of the fairy-tale based series, Once Upon A Time, we are about to be inundated with a little Beauty and the Beast action.
ABC is going to be airing a pilot TV series starring Irish actor Ruth Bradley as Belle and Scottish actor Darius Campbell as the Beast. From what I understand this version will be set in a mythical, dangerous world where Belle is a princess and the Beast is her bodyguard. Not too much more than that has been revealed, but I will keep you posted.
The CW also plans to release their own version loosely based on the 1980's Beauty and the Beast series.
This one will center around Beauty, as a modern day NYPD homicide detective. She witnessed her mother's murder as a child and The Beast in turn killed her mother's killers. Beauty has been looking for him ever since. He is apparently the result of military experimentation gone wrong.
Both of these series should be airing this fall. I know the ABC one will be, not totally sure about the CW version...
I'll let you know more as I hear of anything...
Love me a good fairytale retelling.
And Beauty and the Beast was always my absolute favorite growing up.
Any thoughts on these new series?? Are there any other fairy tales you'd like to see retold?
