I'm officially changing my fruity drink of choice to a Pina Colada

So guess what? HURRICANES SUCK. I will never, ever be able to look at one the same way, again. If you're living under a rock, or out of state, Galveston was hit pretty hard - obviously. Houston sustained some minor damage, mostly from fallen trees. We were one of the .1% of people in Houston who never, ever lost power. Or cable. Or phone. Booyah, Ike! Cant hold me down. And lots of baby squirrels have been found all over the area:


How freakin adorable are these little guys? JP's family found this one in their front yard. And this is a bulletin to all Houstonians: If you have found a baby squirrel, please contact me and I will take it off your hands. I'm being totally serious!! I WANT A BABY SQUIRREL. I WANT ONE NOW!

Next time a hurricane decides to roll though, I'm evacuating - to the Bahamas. Fuck sitting around all day waiting for impending doom; I'll be sipping a margarita on the beach. I'm gonna start a hurricane savings account right now! Or as soon as the banks open back up, I guess. Whatever.

And all the people who came to my blog to wish me luck or comment just cause you were horrified in awe of my giant box of wine - Thank you all so, so much for all the well wishes, offers of prayers and good vibes from the bottom of my heart.

Awe poor squirrels! I want one too, can you send me one?

I love your box of wine also.

It looks like you'll have to break out the bartender's guide for a new drink. You can kill two birds with one stone and go for the pink squirrel.

a hurricane evacation fund to paradise sounds like a great idea!

Monique said...

My husband has been wanting a damn squirrel for ages, and then there you have a picture of one on your site. Now the loon wants to drive to Houston.

I am really glad you made it through safely!

DLD - If I find two, I'll see what I can do :)

Heinous - Combining my love for the color pink and squirrels!! I'll have to look that one up.

Zyriana - lol, thanks, I've felt a lot like Veruca Salt the past few days with the baby squirrels ;)

OD - Seriously, right? Why does nobody do this?

Monique - Then definitely don't tell him they're in all the animal shelters over here!! Thanks, chica :)

OH MY SQUIRREL! That little guy is so freakin' cute!

I am so glad that you stayed safe and didn't drink yourself into oblivion. Glad to have you back unharmed!

Glad to hear that you're OK, the box of wine pulled you through, and best of all you have electricity!!

I changed my drink of choice to Blackout Stout (Great Lakes Brewing Co.) in solidarity.

Who loves ya baby? Send me a baby squirrel too. Even if they really are long haired rats.

Athena said...

Petra - I KNOW I WANT ONE SO BAD! And thanks :)

Condo blues - hahaha thanks! That is so sweet!

Ettarose - LOL I try to look past that part ;) And if I find more than one I'll hook it up :)

Glad to hear you're o.k.
We've been watching from out of state and agree that yes, "Hurricanes Suck!"

if you're gonna switch to a pina colada, make sure to get just a bit of dark rum to top it off. most people don't do it and it really makes the drink.
