i'm bored

This day has been a total bust. Stuck in Brooklyn. Literally.

ely james and I went to the market, this afternoon, to get butter and hot sauce. Ridiculous that we endured the crowds and lines for such things.

Then we sat and watched the news.

A few hours later, we went back out to get whiskey. Had to be done.

Then we sat and watched the news some more. All day long. The most boring day ever, when each channel just keeps talking about the same thing over and over. Damn this Irene lady. I know more about Long Beach than I ever needed or wanted to know.

I read tweets. I read blogs. I read news. Where is this lady? She sure is taking her sweet time.

ely james wants to play scrabble but that seems pointless to me because we still have power. Game time is for when we are without the distractions of tv or the internet.

So, I get myself distracted with a theme.

Poor Maurice Dubois has been on for 11 hours. I think they are just as stir crazy in the news room as I am in my own home. It is now past midnight and the real rain has finally started. Excitement!
