If ever there is any precipitation, count on the fact that the street in front of my building is flooded. Twice it flooded right up the sidewalk and up to my building front door. That was fun to see the lobby as a swamp. But, those days might be over. Yesterday morning, the city buzzed me:

Me: Yes?
Dude: City.
Me: (long pause) Uh, yes it is a city, er, hi, uh… (long pause) what can I help you with?

So, the dude needed some cars moved so he could get to this water main. Fine. First he tells me my car is fine where it is, then he says he’s got a two truck coming to move it a bit and I am hanging out the window yelling to wait, that I’ll run down and move it just wait, wait! So, I run downstairs and it is moved already. Whatevs. Anyway, the street was dry as a bone for the first time since the long stretch of heat in the summer. So, I’m surprised and impressed by the city’s can-do.

Anyway. On to bigger things.

I’m not saying I saw a spacecraft last night, I’m not saying I did not see a spacecraft last night, but the fact remains that I saw three somethings in the air last night that were hovering for about a half hour or so, as did a friend who lives nearby. Certainly unidentified. Certainly flying. Certainly objects. Discuss. Man, her pic is way better than the one I took with my BlackBerry. Anyway, yeah, discuss.

I got a little shoutout on Bookslut’s blog this morning, which I appreciate.

I also woke up feeling like everything was very quiet this morning. Which was alarming for a second, but then I decided I rather liked.
