Goodnight Irene

Well, it looks like it's over. The rain and wind was horrible. I've honestly never seen anything like it. Our dining room was leaking like a sieve but we found the source of it and it was some loose flashing. Gotta get that fixed. We never lost power though! Yay!

My extended in-law family is all safe and sound. The ones who were evacuated are all back in their homes now and assessing the damage they sustained. My MIL and FIL said it was pretty scary and no one got much sleep during the night.

The flooding in my area is wicked right now. Roads have washed away and there have been mudslides. In the next town over, 3 houses were destroyed by a mudslide. Bridges are closed too. There is much more devastation than I thought there would be. Loads of trees down

My husband works for the Canal Corporation and was at his command center all night. He's still there, poor guy. The canal system in the state is overflowing and there is danger of failing dams, which could be devastating.

Our dining room ceiling has a really funky pattern on it now LOL!!! But go figure, it's a beautiful day here with bright sunny blue skies and 75 degrees.

I hope all my FB friends on the east coast had little or no damage and that you're all drying out.


You're a bitch, Irene!

Joe and I battened down the hatches earlier today and are watching the weather channel for updates on the Jersey Shore. A lot of Joe's relations live there and the Metropolitan New York area. Can't get through to them right now, and there are tornado warnings all around them so we're hoping for the best. The cats are getting slightly crazy and it has started to rain here. We're having an adult beverage (or two) and waiting for Irene to get to us. BRING IT ON BITCH!!

I'm hoping all my friends and family will be safe.

Wow! Two posts in the same day. I have sniffing salts if you need them. :)

I'm both orderly and rational. I value control, information, and order. I love structure and hierarchy, and will actively use whatever power or knowledge I have to maintain it. At best, I am lawful and insightful; at worst, I am bureaucratic and tyrannical.

The Woman in Black

Not only is the trailer creepy, so is the movie poster........ I think I'll be seeing this during the daytime. LOL!



Yippy Skippy!!!! I got into Pottermore! My user name is MidnightRune11. Can't wait for the second email to come. Whew! What a relief! :)


Dear American Idol,

You suck ass.




Happy Saturday Night!

How adorable does Bonnie look here? ETA: Any icon-makers looking to practice? :)

And here is a cute LOLCAT picture. I love it when cats have regular "people" names!

Penny for your thoughts.......

Awwwwwwwww, why does he look so sad?


*waves hello to everyone*

Well this f***ing sucks.......

(Yeah, I'm still here lurking about)

I've been dealing with a ligament tear in my hand/wrist that happened a year ago and had surgery in early December. I'm in physical therapy now and am still not great. Rehabilitation is s - l - o - o - o - w. BEWARE of elevator doors!!!

Anyway, I had a foot x-ray last week because sometimes I can barely walk on my left foot. The pain is excruciating and my doctor thought it might be either a stress fracture or plantar faschiatis (sorry, don't know how to spell it).
I got the results today. It isn't either...it's arthritis and apparently there isn't anything I can do about it. I think I'm regretting all those years of wearing stilettos. :(

Typing is still relatively difficult but I hope to be around a little more.
