Oh, hey!

Hi there.
I'm bored  feeling extremely lazy at the moment. Much like Jeffry. If there are any ghost present, I welcome your company. Or whatever. Yeah.
I'm *not* going to be hit with a hurricane. Or apparently an earthquake. I am certainly grateful. Though it would be extremely exciting if I lived through it. I'm going to a birthday party tomorrow. Maybe. Hehe, it'll be interesting. /\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\   <<<< Those look like mountains.. Or.. Something..
Yeah...
Nicky's watching Sue Thomas F.B.Eye. Most awesomest show ever.
Shut up, awesomest is too a word.
10 things I'd re-live in no particular order:

1. Last summer
2. The weekend Faithy was born
3. The Casting Crowns and / or the Owl City concert
4. TeenPact of this year
5. The North Carolina trip we took back in '08
6. ...That's all I remember..

Little brat on STFBEye is mouthing off against Americans... His dad was a suicide bomber and the kid thinks he was a "holy warrior." Glad that all gets cleared up.
Is tomorrow Saturday? Can I sleep in? Why can't I have a little light above my head to tell people if I'm Available, Busy, or Invisible? It'd be so useful.. Especially the invisible one.


Recommended Items To Include In A Basic Emergency Supply Kit:

  • Water, one gallon of water per person per day for at least three days, for drinking and sanitation
  • Food, at least a three-day supply of non-perishable food
  • Battery-powered or hand crank radio and a NOAA Weather Radio with tone alert and extra batteries for both
  • Flashlight and extra batteries
  • First aid kit
  • Whistle to signal for help
  • Dust mask, to help filter contaminated air and plastic sheeting and duct tape to shelter-in-place
  • Moist towelettes, garbage bags and plastic ties for personal sanitation
  • Wrench or pliers to turn off utilities
  • Can opener for food (if kit contains canned food)
  • Local maps
  • Cell phone with chargers, inverter or solar charger

Additional Items To Consider Adding To An Emergency Supply Kit:

  • Prescription medications and glasses
  • Infant formula and diapers
  • Pet food and extra water for your pet
  • Cash or traveler's checks and change
  • Important family documents such as copies of insurance policies, identification and bank account records in a waterproof, portable container. You can use the Emergency Financial First Aid Kit (EFFAK) - PDF, 277Kb) developed by Operation Hope, FEMA and Citizen Corps to help you organize your information.
  • Emergency reference material such as a first aid book or information from www.ready.gov.
  • Sleeping bag or warm blanket for each person. Consider additional bedding if you live in a cold-weather climate.
  • Complete change of clothing including a long sleeved shirt, long pants and sturdy shoes. Consider additional clothing if you live in a cold-weather climate.
  • Household chlorine bleach and medicine dropper – When diluted nine parts water to one part bleach, bleach can be used as a disinfectant. Or in an emergency, you can use it to treat water by using 16 drops of regular household liquid bleach per gallon of water. Do not use scented, color safe or bleaches with added cleaners.
  • Fire Extinguisher
  • Matches in a waterproof container
  • Feminine supplies and personal hygiene items
  • ^---If I was going to be without water or power a few days, this is what I'd add under that category: Dry shampoo, make-up removing wipes, Justine Case from Benefit Cosmetics, mascara.
  • Mess kits, paper cups, plates and plastic utensils, paper towels
  • Paper and pencil
  • Books, games, puzzles or other activities for children
Now I am eating homemade mac & cheese and I'm no longer feeling lazy. Ciao.
