Rainy Days Remind Me of London

Playing: The Water-Post Foetus
Reading: Battle Royale by Koushun Takami
I quite like rain. I never have to think about what I'm going to wear because I always wear the same thing: a pair of dark wash jeans, a cozy sweater, my Converse, and a raincoat that's usually a trench coat. Then my friends will tell me I look like I'm from London, so I run around pretending I'm in London for the day.
Whenever it rains, I always want to go to the beach or go for a walk in the rain, since it rains so little here in California, but my parents won't allow that. They're afraid I'll catch a cold or get soaked, so instead we headed off for a day at the mall. We couldn't just go the mall without eating, right? So we went to our favorite little bento place called BENTOSS, where I ordered the pork katsu with curry. I like how crispy the katsu is, but for the price, they could've given me one or two more pieces of pork...
Afterwards, I walked around South Coast Plaza looking at the window displays, grabbing look books, and I bought a present for someone too. Then I started to feel ill, so we walked back to the car, but look what I found! While we were walking back, we passed the John Varvatos store and Green Day is in their campaign photos! Any brand that supports one of my favorite bands is fine by me. To top it off, I just got tickets to see American Idiot, the musical, and my friend, Michael, let me borrow the soundtrack. Super excited to go see it!
I really like taking photos through windows, while it rains, because I love having the raindrops create a new dimension to the photo. I like how it feels like the palm trees are stretching into the background and it just feels peaceful like you're looking at another world. I just like that feeling.
The next day I took my uncle to a Lee's Sandwiches, so that he could try their amazing deli manjoos, which are basically like taiyaki with more custard on the inside. I like the bread part of this too, which is rare, since I usually don't like the breading without the custard. Must try these should you ever go to a Lee's Sandwiches!
For my lunch, I got the Bacon Club Sandwich, which I actually like quite a bit. I think their Club Sandwich is extra delicious due to the fresh baguette used to make it. Also ordered the mint milk with grass jelly, which wasn't as good as it sounded. After awhile, it got too sweet for me and made me feel sick, so I will probably stick to their iced coffee from now on. There you go! On rainy days, I like to shop, eat, and run around in the rain pretending I'm in London. What do you do?
