In Laurie's Brain


  • I hate the “Pina Colada Song.” It should be called the “Here’s My Foot Up Your Ass” song.


  • Next hurricane evacuation, I’m going Defcon 1 and blatantly ignoring the TX-DOT ban on traveling east or west. I intend to spend my next forced exile sitting in front of a slot machine drinking free Bloody Marys. I will drive either east or west until I’m out of harm’s way. If that means I end up in Atlantic City or Taos, so be it.


  • As you all know by now, hurricanes originate as storms on the African continent which then decide to take a nice warm dip in the Atlantic Ocean. Once in the Atlantic, they get a dose of hot saltwater steroids, then come here to kick our coastal asses. If I were the type to lose sleep over things, this satellite image taken this morning would be one of those things that I would lose sleep over.

Blast you for getting that godforsaken song in my head. You do that to me a lot, you know. :)

Yeah, I'm sure that we are not done with our worrying for this hurricane season.

I came here to take some sort of hero test.

But discovered that I like you, from the title on!

I recently watched "The Full Monty" with my mom. It's one of her favorite movies, so I got it for her 70th birthday. I said, "You get naked men for your birthday!"

I love the end, when they're holding their hats over their yoo-hoo's, they throw the hat off when Tom sings, "You can leave your hat on!"

I wouldn't go east if I were you. Think Northwest: 76 today, 82 tomorrow, light breezes. How boring.....

That satellite map would appear to be something well worth losing some sleep over.... If you were the type to lose sleep over things.

Jen - Oops, sorry. :)

Cathouse - Great movie!

Old Horsetail - I hear it's right purty up there, too.

Peter - I know!

Ah, tis true. Looks to be the raining season on the savanah.

You know me. I'll be on slot machine right next to you losing my ass as usual. But...with a good little free buzz going on.
