I know I need to write about my trip to Europe, but since I came back late Sunday, I've been busy trying to catch up on things I should have done before I left, and immersed in new projects that need to be done. I'll get to it eventually when I can sit down uninterrupted. It was a great journey.
I'm taking a break from painting at the moment, and the first thing I see on CNN is some drenched reporter standing on a beach in southwest Florida as Hurricane Charley blows in. Two questions: am I getting better coverage of this storm because someone is actually standing out there in the middle of it? I keep waiting to see a 2x4 blow by and smack the poor guy in the head. And what's with the funky spelling of the storm itself? I don't know many people named Charlie, and I don't know anyone that spells it with a "y" instead of "ie" on the end. They spelled Bonnie, the storm before this, correctly.
I have always wanted a tropical storm/hurricane to be named "Jim", though I figure that they would go with "James" instead. Alas, it can't happen this year, because J falls into the female name category for 2004. G does not, however, so perhaps the fine folks at the National Hurricane Society can christen the seventh storm of this year "Gym."
It would mean so much, fellas.
