Hi, 2006 Atlantic Hurricane Season. I hear that you have got plans to be quite active this year. Well let me tell you, girl, no one likes a slutty Hurricane Season. So, try not to screw too many of us during your visit, m’kay?
Curious what some of the storms might be named? Well this year the boys go first: Alberto, Beryl, Chris, Debby, Ernesto, Florence, Gordon, Helene, Isaac, Joyce, Kirk, Leslie, Michael, Nadine, Oscar, Patty, Rafeal, Sandy, Tony, Valerie, and William. God willing we won’t have to carry over into the Greek alphabet again.
Note: Because the weather here in Orlando likes to be appropriate, we’re currently experiencing overcast conditions with small scattered showers and the occasional rumble of thunder.
Enough with the weather talk though you should probably get used to it as it is constantly on my mind at this time of year. Today, I am Army Girl. Not actually wearing camo pants as that’d be pushing the boundaries of appropriate office attire but I am wearing Army green semi-cargo pants (albeit with a flower stitching up one leg) and a shirt in the same green only a few shades slightly lighter. I feel like my hair should be up in a bun to stop it from touching the collar of my shirt and saluting people when I pass them in the hall. Sir, yes Sir! It kinda makes me all nostalgic for days of old. The army brat in me shows up at the oddest times.
F-list? I love you guys. Because sometimes it needs to be said. Especially when I’ve been kind of MIA as far as commenting is concerned.
Have I mentioned how much I love the pumpkin Seanan drew on my CD mailer envelope? It’s hanging on the wall right beside my monitor so I constantly glance at it as I type/work. It makes me all gooshy inside.
I’m currently debating whether I wish to stay in San Diego two days BEFORE Comic-Con or two days AFTER. It pretty much costs the same either way although a round trip ticket from Thursday to Tuesday is slightly cheaper. I was going to ask if anyone knows when VM starts filming again but, even if it starts the week after Comic-Con as I suspect it might, I doubt I’d be able to see anything and I really want the extra days to chill and explore SD.
My Cafe Press order left Knoxville this morning at 8AM and is scheduled to arrive tomorrow. It is ridiculous how happy this makes me and how much I can’t wait for my new crop circles hoodie. Damn good thing the movie theaters and restaurants here freeze you out with their AC because it’s *so* not appropriate for wearing at work.
In other shopping news, the one thing I hate about shopping on Amazon.com is that I can’t look through the book to get a feel for it. This really isn’t a problem for reading books as I rarely buy new types of those books online. No, I’m talking about reference books. The kind that I need to be able to glance through to get a sense of the organization and writing style to see if it’s going to be helpful to me. The sucky thing is that the bookstores in the area don’t have a wide selection of these books so I am stuck buying online. Although, I should probably check out the UCF library first. They may have a copy of the ones I’m considering so that I can look through them but I can also check out some of the ones that I am not willing to pay lots of money to buy. Look, bitching in a post actually helped for once!
And lunch is almost over so I need to wrap up.
