News flash!!! @ 11:34 pm

I am now a hurricane!! Yay!!!!!! Or not yay. I guess I should be nice.

Presentation has been practiced. I'm still in lots of pain, and I need to get to bed, but wanted to include the hurricane notice under the cut just so I have it. My thoughts are with those in the path of this storm, even though the shorelines will only probably have minimal effects. It's still cool to have a named storm after me. Need to get to bed. 5:30 will come soon.
