Fermé pour le week-end
An update for those of you scoring at home: A certain Shady Dame and I will be winging our way back to Brooklyn -- 4th largest city in America, as viewers of Welcome Back, Kotter will recall -- on Sunday.
Brooklyn, fortunately, was spared The Wrath of Sandy; my beloved Hackensack, NJ (Paris of the Tri-State Metro Area) was not so lucky; it is, along with the rest of Bergen County, officially a disaster area. No electricity at the moment, although I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it will have been restored by the time I get back.
My younger brother has been taking care of our Mom in my absence,and although they're shivering in the cold, they are otherwise well, and I will be taking over his duties on Monday.
If we don't have power, of course, I won't be posting until it comes back on.
Until we meet again, then -- in the immortal words of Casey Kasem, Keep your feet on the ground and keep reaching for the stars.
Also -- fuck every Republican/climate change denialist who voted to slash funding for FEMA.
With a rusty chainsaw.
