for posterity, i'm going to document my experiences of the next few days. i doubt they'll amount to anything, but why not?

i had been planning for a few weeks on going on a trip this weekend. for various direct and indirect hurricane reasons, i didn't go. my roommate and i are currently planning on staying. it doesn't look like gustav is going to hit the city, and gas is way too expensive to leave if it's not necessary. today i went out and bought supplies. i've got enough food and drink for about five days, i guess. i'm always really bad at estimating this stuff.

currently, gustav hasn't hit cuba yet. after ih does, it'll be in the gulf and we'll have a real idea of what might happen. the plan is to go to birmingham if it starts to look bad. traffic is so bad leaving the city that we'd wait until sunday when they start contraflow anyway.

at whole foods i saw a green schwinn caliente locked up. i own a pink scwinn caliente, and she's the love of my life. since i'm such a nerd, i wrote a note to the "caliente verde" owner and told him that my bike wanted to be his bike's best friend. he wrote back. "fate? destiny? let's get our bikes together for a ride after the storm goes away." and left his phone number. by the owner's name i'm assuming it's a guy. i'm so excited! caliente nerds unite!

that's all i got for now. hopefully i will have nothing of note to report over the next few days.

i had a notebook i wrote in last time that i took with me this time so i can read it while i'm evacuated (in nashville)...i'm not sure if this is a good idea, but even if it totally depresses me, i think it'll be good to remember.

please please please stay safe. you and james both. keep me posted if you're really staying. i want to check up on you!
