FLOOD: The Forgotten Squirt Gun

(viewed 566 times)
I don't know why, but the sight of this supersoaker floating in a muddy field made me sad.

How Little Is Little Man, Part Two [phonecleaning]

Zeus is an overweight but average-sized cat, remember. I was briefly
tempted to reverse some of these shots to make them look like a
question mark.

FLOOD: The Homes and Parks of Night Town

(viewed 471 times)
The best random shots from my tour of some affected areas. I kept
forgetting to wipe the mist and rain off the lens, but once you've
seen a handful of non-rescue flood pictures, you've seen 'em all.

Strangeness abounds in Night Town

(viewed 563 times)
So, after I had Blue Dolphin burgers with some old friends visiting
from out of town, I stopped off at a 24-hour supermarket to buy some
candy and some spices I needed for the dinner I was planning to make
the next day. As I'm walking through the parking lot, I see these
cardboard boxes sitting perfectly dead center in the line between my
loaner car and the front doors of the market. These are boxes for a
type of bottled water that's not carried by this market; it's a brand
unique to a local mom & pop chain that's nowhere near this market. I
lived near one of their branches the last time I moved, so almost
everything I have in storage is in this type box. Why these two boxes
were here, I don't know, but they were really unsettling to see.

My favorite Looney Tune is the one where the eggheaded young chicken
plays hide and seek with Foghorn Leghorn; the kid uses math to prove
that Foghorn, who is standing right next to him, is actually in a bin
across from them. Foghorn berates the kid for being so silly and goes
over to the bin to lift the lid and show the kid that he's not in
there, but he loses his nerve, since he can't be entirely sure that
he's actually not in the bin. So, I opened the boxes to make sure
neither of them had any of my stuff in them; one was empty and the
other had some blank graph paper in it. Then I took this picture and
went inside the store..

I bought my groceries, and as I passed the boxes, I heard a familiar
voice -- it was my 10th grade math teacher and his wife, on their way
into the store. They were talking about candy and the stuff they
needed to buy for tomorrow's dinner. They didn't see me, so I didn't
say anything, hauled ass to my loaner and got the hell out of there.
This morning, I was going through my storage to collect some stuff to
eBay off this week, and I came across a box full of unused graph paper
and my tenth-grade math textbook.

The Bravest/Dumbest Hardware Store in Night Town

(viewed 585 times)
It's not clear in the photo -- I couldn't get any closer because of the DOT guys closing the road -- but the True Value in the distance is now essentially an island surrounded by about four feet of flood water, yards from dry land.

They were still open for business. Despite the flood. At seven o'clock on a Sunday. It seems like their parking lot is always about this empty whenever I pass by, so perhaps they haven't noticed any change yet.

He wasn't surprised at all about Brad and Jen's breakup, since she smokes -- "kissing her must be like smooching an ashtray" said the expert in licking his ass and what was once his balls.

Flood: at Night Town's fairgrounds

Weird light, thick misty rain, and a playground already under six feet of water.

Happy "International 'Record Your Cat Reacting to 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY' Day"!!!

Today is the 37th anniversary of the premiere of Stanley Kubrick's seminal science-fiction film -- let's celebrate bywatching 2001 and recording our cats if they react to it.

Here, Little Man sits on my lap and holds very very very still while he decides what to think of the build-up to the scene where Dave enters the airlock. He appears to move because I was struggling not to laff at him.
