    `Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
    Did gyre and gimble in the wabe;
    All mimsy were the borogoves,
    And the mome raths outgrabe.

    `BEWARE THE JABBERWOCK, MY SON!

    The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!

    Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun
    The frumious Bandersnatch!'

    Saw a guy busking this morning, playing a kick@ss blues-type version of Hendrix's Foxy Lady - completely changed the rhythm and all but in a good way. Made me wish I had a bit of money I could give him. Either that or more time to sit and listen.

    Well, after spending Friday as taxi service evacuating several friends, hurricane Charley decided to take a Disney vacation instead... :D
    Overall, a relief for my town, and yet a bit dissappointing... I guess there was no release from the adrenaline buildup...

    You mad person. How can you be disappointed about missing the Hurricane? That's like those nutters who go down to the seaside to watch a tsunami. Watch it on TV like me.

    No, not really. Think about it. I spent nearly two days tearing my hair out to make sure my house, pets, and friends would be as safe as humanly possible. That causes a huge adrenaline buildup. Then nothing happens, so there's no release of that adrenaline.
    It's a fairly common reaction, so I'm not really sweating it. Trust me, I am grateful that I didn't get flattened in the end.

    @Stephania - That's great for you, but for those who live in or near the actual path, there is still a lot of work to be done. Last time I was able to check in with my family down there, they still had no power and my father had no phone service. At least they have water. My stepmother's parents were trapped in their home due to large old trees coming down blocking all the roads. It took a 15-minute walk to get to their home from the nearest passable street, which is further than they could walk.

    And this is all far inland where Charley had dropped from intensity 4 down to 2.

    I've heard that they expect that full power restoration will take weeks.

    I'd take the adrenaline build up, anyday. :)

    Had a horrible, horriblwe morni ng... i thought Jenova had died!

    Here I am, waking aound 2 pm, and something is not right. THen, i realize what it is.

    The computer wasn't on.

    ow, I recall leaving it on most definitely when i got to sleep, so I was more than a little scared. Power out? A sudden breakdown?

    Tried to turn it on. Nothing happens.

    GO check if it's plugged in. It is, and the monitor light is blinking.

    Time to panic.

    So, for half an hour I frantically did my best to get the damned thing to work, re-attaching wires, flicking switches and swearing.... and finally, when she once again began to hum... I was overjoyed.

    Not even a scrambled windows, see me happy.

    I so need a proper desk to sit Jen on, not some stupid ramndom rickety thing on wheels that I had mmanaged to kick during the night so bad that the wires were all loosened :(

    I'vew been playing a game called "Real lives" which is... streange. It's all about living lives of normal people ont he globe, but you only get pretty minimal control over whatyou do.

    it's still addictive, though. :/

    Argh! My Internet has been completely down for over a week now, and I don't know what went wrong. I am currently in one of the comupter labs at uni, and am less than amused.

    I hate technology sometimes.

    Bah!
    All biology teachers should have their toes roasted over a low fire, and have ferocious S P A M vampsters knibble on their ears and noses, the vile and foul wretches!
    Am I glad I didn't pick it - the higher level biology teachers (trained to teach higher grades) are all real wierdo's.
    The kind that wear shorts, high socks, and sandals, at the same time, possibly with ear warmers if they have cold ears.
    Oh and btw Xei Win Toh your new avatar is coolios and Dendri: shiver and shudder, pathetic wretch - my S P A M will have the effect of casting Polymorph: Steaming pile of cow dung on your brain :p :D .
    Ach, never you mind me
