Don't go outside!


For those of you who haven't heard (ha ha, really): HURRICANE. I figured I'd blog before the power most likely goes out. Anyway, I hope this storm doesn't do too much damage. I don't really know what to expect of it: everyone's saying it's going to be terrible but people over-exaggerate things like this all the time. It's supposed to hit New Jersey in the wee hours of the night, which means I'll be sleeping downstairs tonight...Everyone in the path of the storm, though, stay safe! I know we're all woefully inexperienced with hurricane preparedness :P

In other news, I've been pretty lumpy these last few days. Thursday was my birthday! My mom and I had Chipotle for lunch, and she got me an apple fritter and a $25 iTunes gift card for breakfast (the card was delicious ;D)! Oh, and my aunt sent me a card with $60 in it! Now I can BUY things! How exciting.

Yesterday, I lumped around till about 5:45, at which I went rock-climbing with Vera and co.! I didn't do that badly...except I couldn't feel my hands...or legs...

Today, I lumped around and prepared for the impending apocalypse Irene. We brought in the trash cans and prepared the flashlights and everything. Oh, and I mowed the lawn, which was not so much preparing for the hurricane as it was getting-stuff-done-before-everything-is-soaked. At one point during the mowing process, I went over a patch of grass and crickets came from everywhere. It was like I'd gone over the cricket hive or something. Luckily none of them, you know, jumped on me. Shudder...

I still have not done summer reading. School starts in ten days. What is wrong with me. What.

I think I'm about done with this entry. Good night, everyone! Don't go outside!


  1. Gosh hope everything is okay!!! But hey- sounds like even more fun birthday surprised :)

  2. Will this be your first hurricane? If so, n00b! haha.

    I still genuinely hope there's not damage, but there's probably going to be lots of rain and wind. It will be NOTHING compared to Katrina, Andrew, Frances or Jeanne. Those were catastrophic.

    Happy Birthday again! Presents are always nice. :)

  3. It sounds like you had a wonderful birthday to me! Pastries and money make for a good day indeed. :D

    Stay safe in the apocalypse! I hope nothing gets damaged too horribly.... it's just scary to think about all of those old trees standing up to insane winds. Make sure you update us soon!

  4. Well then welcome to the procrastination club, because I haven't done all of my summer reading either or half of what I need to do, the hurricane just passed over here, it was my first one (yay?) i hope everything goes smoothly though :)
