“The number one thing I am earnestly attracted to is intelligence. Writers are thus the pinnacle of intelligence. While actors are great and awesome, writers literally create new worlds from scratch. What is sexier than that? Personally, I don’t know why every person out there isn’t dating a writer.”

Depending on where you’re reading this from (and whether you have family and friends on the East Coast, I suppose), you may have heard of Irene. Many people talked about her — the distance she’d travel, the speed she’d go, the amount of water suspected to drop.

Clearly, I’m talking about Hurricane Irene. I live in northeastern Pennsylvania, but not east enough to get the worst of Irene. I wasn’t really in her direct path. I mean, we got hit, but the weather where I was didn’t turn out to be that bad. Then again, I like rain and heavy wind, so take my assessment for what it’s worth. But I’ve seen worse before. With that said, the weather didn’t stop my power from being out from Sunday early evening to Wednesday early evening. Though, it went out pretty much after the storm passed. Figure that one out.


Just wanted to let everyone know that me and my family are safe. I hope others are safe as well, especially the ones who had to endure a lot more than I did.

Throughout my blackout, I did have internet access on my BlackBerry, which is how I was able to approve and post comments here. But surfing the net on your phone is a little tedious. I found myself laying in bed early because there was nothing to do. I even pulled out my Firefly DVDs Tuesday night and enjoyed that. 🙂

But with that said, I have some blogs to visit, some TV shows to catch up on, and some writing to do! 🙂
