One thing about living in a hurricane-prone city is that you get used to the newscaster hype. Even www.weather.com's "Hurricane Ike will produce a life-threatening surge on the SE Texas and SW La. coast" can't impress us. We go about business as usual, and when it does finally rain, we stay inside and text message each other about how lame hurricanes are. Then, when the storm has passed on to calmer waters, we have...A HURRICANE PARTY!! It's also necessary to qualify everything with "Hurricane". Like, we're going to a Hurricane Party! Last night I had a Hurricane Nap. Today I'm going to have a Hurricane Shower.
And that's why I'm ready for Ike. DO YOUR WORST!
To celebrate the coming "apocalypse", I am now sharing my favourite scene from Freaks and Geeks.
