Iridescent rainbow clouds: do they rain gold coins? No, not even the ones with chocolate inside. Disappointing, I know. Also: my life. God, can you tell I’m getting depressed? I’m getting depressed. Happy thoughts, GW, happy thoughts. Butterflies and zebras and moonbeams and fairy tales…that’s all I ever wanna think about — riding with the wind. Okay I think that helped a little. At least enough to copy/paste a paragraph, write another one after that, then spend the rest of the evening crying in the back of my closet.

Pictured, behind this darker cloud, is a pileus iridescent cloud, a group of water droplets that have a uniformly similar size and so together diffract different colors of sunlight by different amounts. The above image was taken…by chance by a photographer in Ethiopia.

Damn Mother Nature, you cray-cray. I’m serious, why you gotta make it so hard for a man to be happy? “Don’t blame me, human — it’s not nature, it’s nurture.” Ugh — well that’s a pretty bitchy thing to say!

Thanks to Claire, who followed a rainbow all the way to the end only to find a toiletful of glitter. RIPOFF!
