The most irritating thing for me when the power goes is that I can't cook. I miss the internet and the video games, but I have plenty of dead tree books to read. Also, if it's cold and the power goes out then we freeze.

I've decided against purchasing alcohol though because I'm definitely going to need it next Tuesday and I can't see drinking during the week two weeks in a row.

At least it's supposed to stay fairly warm here? Up by my sister-in-law they might get snow.

Not cooking is a pain, though, for sure. We have cans of soup and beans and baby food that I can heat over a candle if necessary, along with bread and peanut butter and chips and that sort of stuff, but food cravings are hard for me to fight off. If I want some pizza or steak or something then I'm going to become very hard to deal with.

Campus just got shut down tomorrow too. No reason to stop drinking until Wednesday. =) Already have plans with some friends to brave five blocks of wind and play Catan and get drunk at their place tonight. Doing this hurricane thing in style.

The weather here in upper Manhattan has not shown any signs of getting worse yet. We get about one wind gust every 20 minutes or so that's pretty impressive, and it's barely drizzling. People are riding their bikes down in the street. Post officers could take a lesson from these delivery guys.

Hope all you Jersey folks are faring alright! From the radar, looks like you're getting the worst of it...

Apparently parts of Manhattan are already underwater.

I also hear Jersey's bad, at Chris mentioned before, so love and white light to my Jersey peeps.

Shit. I hope my friends that are closer to the shore (one of them is walking distance) are okay.

Our power keeps flickering. If we lose it I'm going to have to start drinking.

That would require driving! And putting on a bra.

...I always have to wear a bra, even when I sleep. Or else it hurts and feels weird ._.
