So...the levee broke and the area of the city i live in, which as never ever flooded, is now submerged.  I was holding out hope, but then I read this:

Quote
Dozens of residents evacuated to the dry land of the Filmore Street bridge over the Marconi Canal were stranded between the flooded neighborhood on their right, and the flooded City Park on their left, hours after they had been plucked from rooftops or second-story windows.


yes, this bridge is a two minute walk from my house.  

so...now I'm probably going to be stuck here at my parent's house for at least a week, er, wait, that was yesterday's prediction.  Talk to me, MSNBC...

no power for two months?  jeez.

so anyway.  all my books, DVDs, and most of my clothing are now swirling around in sewage-infested saltwater.  time to update the old amazon wishlist!  http://www.amazon.com/gp/registry/registry.html/103-6300128-9912628?%5Fencoding=UTF8&id=1F6Z21TPPSKW3

I'll let you guys know more when i hear it.

Oh my god, Sparky, I can't believe it. I guess the next time you move, it'll be a lot easier. Fucking mother nature.

If you need emotional crash time away from the wicked family, I can make up a bed in the basement and you can be amused by a wicked family that's wicked to people besides you.  Seriously, door's open up here.  Call before you come at 3am, because I might be masturbating.

Right, OK, but can I feel good about sending someone The Complete Poems of Carl Sandburg when he's got no socks?  C'mon what do you really need, and are you Zord?

New Orlean's Mayor Nagin said both the city's airports were under water, the Southern Yacht Club had burned to the ground, an oil tanker had run aground and was leaking, there were gas leaks throughout the city and Interstate 10's twin spans heading east over the lake were "completely destroyed."


christ.  maybe i should start looking for a new place to live.

on the upside...don't have to pay rent this month!

Time to go share a room with Nubbins.

Hey, Yotoc, is the other half of your Duplex still open?

hehe... if I'm around, you're more than welcome to crash in Atlanta.  Even if I'm not around, I have a very comfortable doormat and a gated community.

Glad to hear you're okay.

Nope, got rented out.  Shame.  That would be freaking hilarious until we all became drunks and Blue murdered us.

Glad you're ok.  You can also crash here if you ever get that desperate.

I wish somebody would let off several dirty bombs in DC so I could go crash with everyone.

Oh, man, everyone I knew and loved is dead.  Can I come spend a week with you, Nubbs?!

Hey, does this link work?  AP's 100 photos, including Cass, nude and running away in a panic.
