My mom called me today to let me know that she left Florida, because they were evacuating everyone because of some hurricane, and she thought it was so funny that I had no idea about it because I never watch tv or anything anymore. Mine isn’t even hooked up. She’s like “and here I am am calling so you wouldn’t worry about me, what was I thinking!” I told her about how when the twin towers fell I didn’t even know about it, because I had ironically been watching reruns of “America’s Funniest Home Videos” on the WB all day on sept 11, 2001 and they didn’t even interrupt the broadcast or anything. So I didn’t find out until later that night.
I don’t know why they decided to name the hurricane after a flintstones character. You can tell already that they’re going to find some way to interject that and make for some dumb clever headlines(Wilmaaa! etc). The other one was ‘Katrina’ which really does just sound like the name of a “huge bitch”.
