August 29th, 2008 – finally a day off from work where I travel nowhere and can spend time by myself in quiet contemplation. Now, I have to take pictures of all of our stuff and gather the important items in Rubbermaid containers that fit in the back of the truck. All Just In Case We Have To Evacuate For Hurricane Gustav. This time, our tentative plan is to head straight up to Wisconsin, in order to avoid long waits in westbound traffic.
What a pain.
Dad thinks the storm will head to the Yucatan while Mom utilized her divine powers of prognostication to deem that it will come nowhere near us. This would make me feel better if we hadn’t used up all of our Storm Repulsion Karma over the course of the last two seasons.
All of you out there may be listening to Mahler, but we’re currently rocking Holst at VatulBlog World HQ. Here’s Jupiter – The Bringer of Jollity from The Planets suite. Jollity, indeed, because this five-day storm track is nothing if not jolly. Oh, rapture!
Update: You know what, I’m really stressed out right now while slowly preparing for a possible evacuation and do not need negative Twitterheads, people like Will Bunch and vile commenters at Daily Kos making my mood fouler. Democratic bloggers who think that the hurricane, if it comes here, will be “a potential nightmare for the Republican Party” are, to quote Adrastos, “the left wing equivalent of those wingnuts who want another big terrorist attack because it will help the ‘daddy’ party and hurt the ‘mommy’ party.” Listen up, stupid self-centered faux progressives, we are voters, citizens and humans, not your political lab rats!
