Raindrops keep fallin' on my head It's raining hard. The thunder and lightning make me sleepy. So I am just wanting to go back to beddy-bye.

Today is a day to be thankful. Here is a list of good things that I am thankful for:

- Rain instead of humidity - Too many cups of coffee - Bailey and Noah (my cats who insist on loving me the most when I wear black. - A 3 day weekend coming up - Red - Crossing something off my to-do list - Finding the perfect sunglasses.

On a side note, this story was recently in the news: (I find it absurd and just plain dumb that this is something people are fighting over. Sheesh Loueesh.)

Abercrombie & Fitch lays claim to number 22

Associated Press August 26, 2003

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Abercrombie & Fitch says its Hollister stores own the number 22. The New Albany, Ohio-based company has sued rival retailer American Eagle Outfitters, seeking to prevent it from using the number on its clothing. The lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court in Columbus asks a judge to order American Eagle to stop using 22 on its clothing and ads, destroy any clothes or ads with the number and pay Hollister for profits from those items. Hollister says it owns the number 22 because it has appeared on the chain's clothing since it opened three years ago. Hollister never registered a trademark on the number, but the company claims common-law rights because the number is used on Hollister's merchandise, packaging and Web site. American Eagle is based in Warrendale, Pa., but its majority owner is Columbus-based Schottenstein Stores Corp. A federal court has ruled at least three times that Abercrombie can't prevent American Eagle from selling clothes that look like Abercombie's. Numbers can be trademarked if a company can prove people associate the number with it, said Ohio State University law professor Sheldon W. Halpern. For example, he said, if a Shell gas station uses the number 76 on its signs, 76 Petroleum could sue because the number is known to represent that fuel company.
