7681 - It doesn't *feel* like a weekend.

Cats in Sinks! (My first pic with my now dead digicam was Newt Drinking from the sink.)

Looks like I got lucky with my power recovery... 400k people in Broward are expected to be without power until Tuesday (not to mention 500k in Miami-Dade, or 100k in the Palm Beaches). I'd be pretty unhappy with no climate control for a week!

Moment of lyric (thanks, edenette!)

I run for the bus, dear,
While riding I think of us, dear,
I say a little prayer for you.
At work I just take time
And all through my coffee break-time,
I say a little prayer for you.

While on walkabout yesterday, I saw two different guys fish McDonald's cups from the trash and go inside to get refills. (Once, as I was going in to get some cold diet coke, and once again as I was leaving.) Lots of gutter-sniping in the downtown area... guys smoking discarded cigarettes from the ground, or out of Denny's ash trays, diving into the bins behind 7-11 for food and now McD's... I'm very thankful that I don't have to be a scavenger in order to survive.

I don't think that I'd deal with that lifestyle very well, and hope that I never get the chance to find out. I've been down and out before, even gone pretty hungry but I've always managed to have a meal that wasn't taken from the trash.

Hm, George RR Martin has a livejournal. Well, one entry. (David Brin has a blogspot account).

On second thought.. I'm *glad* I saw Halloween candy yesterday. I'm looking forward to October.
