Well, it appears our African American friends have found something else to be pissed off about. A black congresswoman (this would be Sheila Jackson Lee, of Houston) reportedly complained that the names of hurricanes are all Caucasian- sounding names.
She would prefer some names that reflect African -American culture such as Chaniqua, Woeisha, and Jamal.
I can hear it now: A black weatherman in Houston saying...
"Wordup, Muthas! Herr-i-cane Chaniqua be headin' fo' Galveston like Leroy on a crotch rocket! b*tch be a category fo'! So, turn off dem chitlins, grab yo' chirren, leave yo crib, and head fo' de nearest FEMA office fo yo FREE sh*t".
What it means is that I laughed so hard that I 'spewed' any number of liquid on my keyboard....
Sure...even though I'm happy with my lappy, I could use another one (almost happy...the DVD burner died recently....gotta take time to remove it & send it back. It's still under warranty )
no wonder it died, if you reversedrink your rum and cokes into it frequently dont work too hard, not that we get you back here end of season completely tired ;D and no new boyfriends, that keeps you way to much of the computer
Idealism is what precedes experience; cynicism is what follows.
Hmmm Manta has no man at the moment??? Now THIS is very weird!!!! Did they all run away???
Surely you don't think that Sharki.....who do you think has been keeping me offline ;D
as for "end of season" - not by a long shot. I just have been getting up early enough to check the board before work. We're actually busier during the summer than we are in winter. The resort is all condos, and when the kiddies get out of school, families travel......
Now I would like to see the outcry, when we name them all reflecting African -American culture to make up for the last decades! How would it be to give them "evil" names, like Saddam, Stalin, Hitler and the works (maybe Dubya would fit in there )
Experience or stupidity may get you there..., only training will get you back!
