eye of the storm

Is anyone else feeling a slight unease about this holiday weekend? I've got a bad vibe thing going on.

Comments

It's the Undertoad. I'm feeling the same way, and I know it's not because of the 30+ student papers I have to read by next Monday.

But on a lighter note...
I suspect that I'm a bit agitated because of that pesky conversion deadline (is that GMT or local time, I wonder?) and I haven't yet been able to find a drive-through conversion station ("Arrive in a Navigator; Leave on a Camel!")

No. Feeling good here. No sign of the occasional sense of dread. Looking forward to a quiet weekend, possibly involving parts of several different television marathons.

I agree with you, Michele. I will not be surprised if (when) something major goes down this weekend. Especially since my boyfriend is traveling on Amtrak from DC to Philly tomorrow night - I am VERY uncomfortable about that! If not this weekend, then soon. Since Sept. 12th, 2001, I have been saying that they are going to wait until our guard is down again...

Relax. My advice: start drinking now.

I know what you mean, especially since Osama bin Laundryhead's "Letter to the Americans" was just released, basically saying that the Islamikazes will strike us in the same way that they perceive us to have striken them. Every time this turd reappears, it's just before some terrorist act is attempted, and I've been wondering if they will see a Thanksgiving attack akin to us bombing the snot out of them all through last Ramadan.

That sounds like good advice, Nikita. I just poured myself a wee dram of Springbank single-malt Scotch. Mmm, peat and sweet, and meant to be drunk neat.

Riyadh delenda est!

Yes. I actually have that feeling of expecting someone to knock on my door, that's how bad the vibes are. I hope I'm wrong, but I kind of expect the Religion of Peace to celebrate Thanksgiving their way.

Relax, the President's got it all covered ...

Cheer up, Michele... Those are my vibes... Gotta go to the oral surgeon tomorrow.... Wish me luck..

No, I know what you mean. I was going to do a blog post about it, but didn't want to really talk about it. That sounds stupid, I know.

Well, I'm heading for Disneyland for the holiday and I will try to keep myself from thinking about all the ways bad things could happen.

Michael, that is the shizzit! I love it.

Sadly, I've been fighting the same dreaded fear... Eh, could be the Baja Chalupa that I had a Toxic Hell yesterday. ;-) Seriously, I pray that nothing nasty goes down. Given America's love affair with shopping the day after Thanksgiving, you won't find me anywhere NEAR a mall - especially something like the Mall of America - a monument to consumerism (and everything "bad" about America). Stay vigilant - and safe.

Well, there's always a possiblility of these jerkoffs retaliating during the Holidays. Osama bin Lactose-intolerant seems to thive on every American stereotype there is. I'm sure he thinks we'll be too busy drinking beer and watching football and HBO to notice a terrorist attack.

In other news... didn't you want a "White Thanksgiving"? I don't know what's up in Long Island right now, but the Poconos is having one hell of a snowfall right now...

I decided after the 4th of July weekend that I wasn't going to have any more holidays held hostage by concerns of a new attack. If they have some attack planned, it likely has its own timetable, and I doubt it revolves around our Infidel holidays.

Besides, nothing gets between me and my Thanksgiving turkey.

Eek! I didn't until you said that! Now I do! I'm getting the fuck out of New York. Buh bye!

I'd bank on Christmas eve or superbowl sunday, myself.

either way... deal with it, and not show fear.

Actually, the Islamifucknuts have a rather consistent history of not understanding American culture and ideology in the least. 9/11 was an Islamic holiday, IIRC. Moreover, they underestimated the resolve of the American people, thinking we'd cower instead of strike back. They still think reality revolves around Allah, and therefore them. They might very well pick this weekend to do something...personally, I think it a lot more likely Bush will be the one to do something this weekend, if it happens.

hehe Michael. You know how I love that fo shizzle izzle.

Michele, the only thing you have to dread on Thanksgiving Day is having to spend it with your family! All of them, ALL day!! Love You!!

Jo, you're right. I get this feeling every time i have to spend the day with your husband!

I'm never fully prepared for a day of bad jokes.

Yeah, me neither! Between him, daddy & the vodka, we are doomed!

Michael is on!

Unfortunately, living in New York, I've had that horrible "any minute now" feeling almost (but not-quite) non-stop for the past fourteen months...

So yeah, I have bad vibes about the Thanksgiving holiday coming up, but also the December 8th/9th probable start of the war in Iraq, the Christmas shopping season, New Year's...so what else is new?

At least when the Israelis get bad vibes, they usually just have to wait a few days to find out that hey, they were right! Here, we're on tenterhooks for months and months just from the possibility that something, somewhere, might happen. If this isn't the perfect definition of terrorism--feeling constantly freaked out, if not explicitly terrorized, even with nothing going on--I don't know what is.

Um, and happy Thanksgiving.

Believe it or not, when I flew cross-country September last year (9/9/01), I had the worst, blackest, bad ju ju feeling of my life. Maybe it was just killer pms, but I don't have that feeling now (merely a craving for chocolate and a handgun - "step away from the Hersheys and nobody gets hurt"), if that's any comfort.

Bill Cooper warned that major holidays are the best times for the stormtroopers to come and get you and your family, while you are all together and sedated by eggnog and turkey tryptophan.

I don't know if our "infidel holidays" are a part of their plan... it's definitely a matter of our guard being down (July 4th was just TOO obvious.)

HOWEVER, after a commercial on the history channel, I learned that the Pentagon first opened its doors on September 11th, 1941...

60 years later, to the day... coincidence????

Well, you were right. I'm just taking in the news from Mombassa. The sick bastards are taking the softest of targets possible.
If any Isreali can be called a soft target that is? The response to this will be interesting.
