Running from Rita - Part 1

Here she comes. Apparently. Us here in Houston are making preparations. Today in the office most everyone is boxing up their piles of paper and books and so forth from their offices.

We're all moving our stuff into the hallways and filing cabinets away from our windows. Pretty interesting. There is a fair amount of anxiety in the air. The seasoned veterans of Houston hurricanes are quietly gloomy about it. "Oh, power should be out until at least next Tuesday." And that sort of thing.

Everyone is curious about when everyone else is planning to evacuate. The timing. Where they're going. Friends of mine are just deciding to take vacation earlier than they expected to. Schools are expected to be closed at least until Wednesday next week.

Stay tuned for further updates as events warrant.

God Bless Us ... Every One.

There will be a report about the treasured ducks when I get back to the house later today to appraise the situation. To comment on the ducks prior to that would be irresponsible.

Are you going to be taking these treasured creatures with you?

Anything less than the best is a felony....

Just keep your pecker hard and your powder dry, and the world will turn my man.

irresponsible? why? because in the slim chance that they're reading this blog, your promise of helping them evacuate might get their hopes too high? ah, yes, you're right; that would be irresponsible.

Why enumerate the P.E. songs? Shouldn't anything from P.E. always have relevance?

Be safe, my friend

Most likely, yes.
However, we at iTunes feel that "Welcome to the Terrodome" was the offical song of Katrina, and therefore is not appropriate for Rita. Unless, the Astro-dome gets punked, then we will possibly re-consider our stance. Also, we at iTunes do not sanction listening to "Cold Lampin' with Flavr" during a hurricane.

We do however approve of the use of the term: 'BOY' at anytime during a hurricane.

We also suggest screaming "I'm shitting in my pants", at a high decible while sporting a bra on ones head. It may not do any good, but you'll sure look cool.
