From an IM conversation with sara jane. Rainbo skating rink in Chicago closed. It was also known as rainblow. The word "brainblow" was just a natural transgression from that.

I do not recognize this as a word -- I challenge!

i think it sounds kind of dirty.

where's your mind, laura?

Her mind is with mine.

I also challenge. The sentence structure in example #2 works against supporting the word, not for it.

"Rainblow" closed for very good reason, but I think we've already taken this entry past the PG-13 rating, so I'll end here.

where's MY mind? you're the one using the word in a sentence. i'm merely saying out loud what everyone else thinks.
