Welp, now I really want Reggie Watts to be a hurricane weatherman just to see what his hair does.
This map is more practical.
If she were still alive, my mother would HATE it that a storm bearing her name is threatening all my nice friends in the New York area. Please don’t take it personally, and stay safe and dry, guys!

Brooklyn, that most fertile of boroughs.
While it was happening, I was on a boat off the coast of Quadra Island fishing for salmon with some friends of my mother’s. Our day started around 5:30 AM, and when I flicked on the TV briefly before we went out for the day, they had just started showing the first pictures, and I didn’t know what to think, but couldn’t stay and watch because the boat was waiting. We fished for 6 hours, and I snapped this picture during that time.
When we motored back in at noon, all the flags at the resort were at half-mast, and people were gathered in front of any TV they could find. Flights in and out of the tiny island were cancelled, and in every way that mattered, it was as if the entire world had changed while we had been out there sitting quietly on that [surprisingly calm] ocean.
Rachel’s photo of the ribbons at St. Paul’s Cathedral reminded me so much of the ticker tape in the trees in this photo I took after the Yankees’ World Series victory parade in November 2000, it’s kind of eerie.
Thinking of you, NYC. xoxox
I just found a super cheap flight from Seattle to NYC…
… A super cheap flight I will still never be able to afford.
$291 may as well be $2,910 or $29,100 at this point.
Fuck my ass of a life in the ass.
