sound the sirens

With the new alert level in full swing, ready.gov is at your service once again. It looks like they've updated some of their visual aids.

A little black humor is good for the soul.

Honestly, this one has me just a bit scared, unlike all the other fluctuations in the color level. It seems somehow different this time.

So, how does one go about being vigilant? Do I carry a switchblade? Wear a protective mask? Saran wrap the house and be on the lookout for shifty looking characters?

Maybe this will keep the crowds out of Best Buy and I can finish my shopping tomorrow without killing someone.

When you saran Wrap the house - dont' forget the duct tape!

Make me wonder how far I should go to be "prepared" - I don't want to get stuck with all that Y2K-like surplus lying around in the basement.

Good thing I just bought a painting / chemical mask yesterday! I'm two steps ahead of 'em...

My favorite: If you've become a radiation mutant with a deformed hand, remember to close the window. No one wants to see that shit.

Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm, saran wrap, now that is kinky.

Our local Best Buy was jam-packed, Michele, so I wouldn't count on it. (Of course, I don't live in New York.)

Last February I wrote a song on the occasion of the launch of ready.gov. No one paid any attention to it. I now risk fate by drawing it from its well-deserved obscurity into the light. See you in Hell!

Hm. "Throw up the rainbow."
