    I'm going to the mall later on to get my watch fixed. After that, I might head to a coastal spot and watch from my car. Then I'm going swimming in the ocean. Fuck rip tides, mother fucker.

    I took a cab to work today, to stay dry.
    I asked the cab driver to let me out in under ground parking, so I dont have to go back in the rain, he let me out in front of sports check. :ugh::Wtf:

    Visiting my Mom at our cottage on Miramichi Bay. It's a bit rainy here but we're not going to get too much hurricane action. Here's hoping our steps to the beach don't get washed away!

    I woke up from my backshift to rain all over my window, down the sill and all over the floor..fabulous! So...I called the super upstairs..they come down and plastic tard the outside of the window..umm...DIDNT' HELP! It's still coming in like a mother..the sealant (sp) is cracked. (they are new windows too...just put in 2 months ago).

    Then I went into the kitchen past the front door and fell on my ass...the front door is leaking like a bitch onto the kitchen floor...now I have at least 5 towels in my window and 3 at the front door. ARG!!!

    SCREW YOU HURRICANE BILL!!!

    yeah our own fault, roof needed repairs since we moved in, we've been putting it off since we've been looking to build a new house.
