So, is it like a snow day?  People staying home from work and school?

Everything has pretty much come to a skreeching halt.

Now we just get to hang out and see if the power goes out.  Wish I had the funds for a backup generator.  Prospect of another 5-7 day (or worse) power outage sucks sweaty balls.

Yeah, depending on the weather it's either sweaty balls or moist, fungal balls.  Maybe frozen balls?

In Philly on 26th floor of apt, windows are closed but somehow the wind is so fierce the blinds are shaking. Must be window insulation problem, but still it has been a nonissue for years.

Sounds like a train (metro train) behind my place.  Had to go in to the hospital this AM for work.  No clue whether I can get in there tomorrow.  At best, it takes me an hour to get to work in DC.  Was a crazy drive home with 8 firetrucks and 4 ambulances headed down I-270 towards DC.  It is the coldest hurricane, trop storm, or trop depression I have ever been in.

True. On the bright side, I have one for each TV that also does not work. Jonzr told me that Penso was going to send me a new TV so we could all move on and stop talking about it...Probably got to wait a few extra days now the the Hurricane is gonna screw up the postal service, not to mention he has to revise all his syllabuseses....

I assuaged the discomfort of not being at work by reading Mark E. Smith's (sort of auto-) biography imaginatively entitled The Fall.  It had the unfortunate side of effect of all documentations of still-living artists, which is to say, it made me like the subject less than I did before I knew they were like that in real life.

No genetic disorders with Mark E..  Maybe a few things he picked up on the way though...

Day 3 of no work.  Running out of things to do.  Still plenty of food left, stocked up on booze and stuff to smoke.  Might go up to the roof like Alex Chilton and wait for someone to rescue me.

Saturday: Did all my grading, watched college football.
Sunday: Steelers game; kicked finny's ass at FF; got drunk.
Monday:  Read all day, watched antiques roadshow.  Got drunk.
Tuesday:  Slept, repotted plants, cleaned bird cage.  Went out (the horror!), got drunk.
Wednesday: _____________________; got drunk.

You fuckers not in the northeast think it's all sweetness and light having no work for a week.  But I'm here to tell you, seven straight days of girlfriend stuff is no joke.  Watch movie with girlfriend, eat breakfast, lunch and dinner with girlfriend, go to girlfriend's choice of bars, hang out with girlfriend's friends, all small talk and giggles make penso something something.
