umbrella  
I've decided that my best defense against the misery of this rain is a fun new umbrella or two that will make me happy to be carrying them. Once upon a time, I had an umbrella that looked like it was made of leaves, which I loved, but it went walkabout a couple of years ago. I also love the ones that look like flowers. But there are lots of gorgeous umbrellas out there! What do you think I should be carrying, or should at least know about?

Also, you probably can't get any of them, but check out these!

That was the one I was going to suggest.

I think this one is cute, although possibly only situationally awesome. This might remind you of Burning Man :)

perhaps a double umbrella or this one (inside text is key).

I can't find a picture, but I never carried an umbrella (on the assumption that if it was raining hard enough that I really needed it I was going to get wet anyway) until someone gave me one that had a purple duck head at the top, webbed feet on the handle, and was clear plastic with purple feathers in it.

I went looking for your umbrella, but ran across the purple monster umbrella instead. Cool!

I really like the second one of these:

When I was a little girl, my mother carried a parapluie! (Pronounced - in our household - as par-ah-ploo-eeeeeeeee!!!) Now, a parapluie is brightly colored, has flowers or something else beautiful on it and is something that smiles back as the rain falls.

It wasn't for many years that I learned it was simply the french word for umbrella. Everything is just more elegant and colorful if said in French!

Oh, and Blue Skies or Daisies might be nice. Or there's always the bubble.

More ornery than joyful in style, but perhaps useful to know about, if aimed in the right direction..
