Hurricane Irene Obviously Isn’t Team Eric
Hurricane Irene is not a nice storm. A name like Irene is far too ladylike for the pummeling that the homes surrounding me took from punishing winds and heavy down pours of rain. It should have been called “Hurricane Oh My God Don’t Let That Giant Tree Limb Hit My House”. (Perhaps it actually turned out to be a tropical storm with hurricane like gusts, I’m not sure due to hearing different things, it doesn’t matter it just was scary.) The aftermath was a mess of ancient trees laying across major roads, dormant power and telephones lines hanging askew from their perches and rows of neighbors standing at the local firehouse trying to determine when aid would be reaching their homes.
My family in a way was one of the lucky ones. Sure it took seven days to regain power and running water, but there were families not only in Connecticut, but other states that lost their homes/lives to the brutal storm. While we lost everything in our refridgerator and freezer, we had a plan in effect (and charcoal grill) to keep us fed and we stocked up on water to keep us hydrated. Plus, most importantly, we have loving family and friends that helped us with their support that kept us strong as our tempers were getting hot and our patience was wearing thin.
This led me to make some hopefully make some observations about life. Nah…T.V.and movies. I am not that deep, when trying to find ways avoid eating the cans of SPAM we bought. Plus, what else are you going to do when wearing a special flashlight hat at 8:00 P.M. and trying to stay awake. Play board games and have an intellectual conversation? Ha! We did that the first three nights!
TRUE BLOOD: I decided I am Team Alcide/Sam and whoever is not a vampire. (Jessica excluded) Sorry Eric and Bill, I have switched teams. Even more so after catching up on Sunday. (Yay power!) You’ll see in the recap! (Working on it today. Promise!)
The Secret Circle: There is always room for something new. Something new that you liked reading when you were a teenager! Plus Kevin Williamson is doing it and Vampire Diaries is fantastic! Plus I like witches!
Twilight: Breaking Dawn is coming, so I had briefly thought about watching the earlier movies on the portable DVD player. Then the realization that I would have to explain WHY I like them. I chickened out.
Instead, we watched these instead…
I also started reading, The Witches of East End: A brilliant book by Melissa de la Cruz! I want it to be the next book club selection after we FINALLY discuss A Discovery of Witches!
Hopefully, Talk Supe is back on track! (And WC Stacey gets a little let up in all her work!) We want to hear all of your comments (because we love them!)
