Pelly, do you remember how the lakes in the office park have the bridges and there are different "levels" to the lakes? well, not any more.... the bridge closer by my building has just bareley a couple feet clearance under it, when it usually has several, and an obvious different level to the lower lake.

and the main road on the outside of hte east side of hte office park was closed off all day. i think salt creek way over flowed its banks.

The lakes would be a natural low point kid of like the marshy area over near the driving range. I drove in today but had to take Sheridan because the Edens was completely flooded in a couple places. My parents basement flooded. My sister and BIL did bail out duty. Saw you were stuck with 3 wet basements. Bummer

My biggest complaint about our Internet-fed instant news society is the lack of copy editing. I woke up this morning to 3 alerts from CNN about the violence in Boston overnight, but when I tried to read the article on their site, I could barely follow it.

I want to get paid lots of money to get f'ed up and spout crap on stage.

BTW, I listened to both this and Pearl Jam's In My Tree. I can't say that I (dis)like one better than the other.

I have decided you sound like a meeting between the Girls of Gone With the Wind and Popeye.

Happy Friday! Weekend plans?

Tonight I'm having dinner with my friend C. She's pregnant and I haven't seen her in a couple of months so it'll be fun to see her progress, and to catch up of course.

Not sure about Saturday.

Sunday night, my church is doing a beach baptism and about 25 people are getting baptized in the ocean (including me and my friend L).

Sunday: Hopefully no puking from all the drinking.
