potpourri for 500, Alex
CNN was showing some idiot standing out in the hurricane trying to moonwalk. Or maybe that was just the wind blowing him back. He could barely stand up straight and it was obvious that if the wind got any stronger, the guy was going down. I was rooting for Darwin.
A person who stands out in a hurricane just to get on tv is called an idiot. The person who drives right into the heart of the hurricane because it is her duty to bring you the worst scenarios possible is called the Leader of the Axis of Isabel, a/k/a Meryl.
Here on Long Island, the wind is starting to kick into high gear and the skies are a dull, mean looking gray. We've begun with the soundtrack of a tropical storm: banging gates, rolling garbage cans, car alarms and branches falling to the ground. It is a weather symphony.
So yes, I do have things to blog about besides the weather. But you're going to have to wait until I find a home-made cure for this exruciating toothache, which may be part of allergies and sinuses or may just be a good old toothache. I'm looking for gin or rum. Mom said it worked on me when I was a baby.
Coming up later: high school football goons; the myth of zionism and Red Sox bashing.
And Meryl, you need to add Alan to the Axis. He's got some good Isabel blogging going on.
One Fine Jay is also doing some stellar huri-blogging.
