A blog post in which I say suck/sucky/suckier/ as much as possible.
People who decided to "wait it out" and forced emergency crews to risk
their lives to come get their asses when they should have left in the
first place should receive a hefty bill in the mail. What makes me
think of things like this? I once worked for a woman who was a
quadriplegic, after a car accident in which she slid off an icy
off-ramp. She swore that the highway department sent her a bill for the
guardrails she damaged. I don't know. It all sucks.
2. Sadness and tragedy sound so much more poignant in a New York or New Jersey accent.
The telethon was sad sad sad. The videos were heartbreaking, but what
really sticks with me at this moment is who WAS the "other" guy who was
singing on stage with Steven Tyler, Jimmy Fallon, Bruce Springsteen,
and Billy Joel. He was on a mic with Bruce. Who WAS that? All the
google searches said "Fallon, Springsteen, Joel, Tyler, and others."
Sometimes Google sucks. Someone help me out here.
4. Matt Lauer has lost a lot of hair.
Damn, I wish I could say I had lovely memories of visiting the Jersey
Shore & boardwalk, something beyond "I saw it on Beaches".
I think if I lived there even if I didn't lose a damn thing I would
still just have to sit down and cry thinking about how much CLEANING has
to be done. Cleaning sucks. And have you ever tried to get sand out
of your house when someone tracks it in from the beach? I can't
imagine dealing with the amount of sand Sandy tracked in. Hey!
"Sandy". Get it?
7. I think a lot of weather reporters have PTS(andy)D from this, they were in way over their heads. Almost literally.
I wish I had a kid's address in NY or NJ... I'd send them 90 % of the
candy my daughter hauled home from trick or treating... and I really did
feel sad that there were a lot of kids totally wrecked about whatever
else they may have lost, but also, no trick or treating? That sucks
9. I'm glad they cancelled the NY Marathon. Seems all that running energy could be put to good use around there.
I'm very grateful that Obama seems to be making such a good impression
in his support of Gov. Christie and whoever, but I'm scared to death
that people who just lost their homes or pets or trees or cars or
childhood memories may have a little more on their plate than making the
effort to get to a polling place on Tuesday. Not to mention how hard
is it to get from point A to point B at this time? I don't have any
real frame of reference so I'm just sitting here in the middle of
Kansas, casting a vote that won't matter due to the electoral system,
and worrying about how people will manage to vote.
I will tell you, though, that I'm going to vote SO HARD on
Tuesday. Hurricane Sandy & all the damage sucked/sucks big-time.
Imagine how much suckier it would be with Mittens at the helm.
