Scout’s honor. Be prepared.

in None

You know what’s awesome? I’m trapped in the house and STILL procrastinating about getting shit done. As if I haven’t seen everything there is to see on the internet. Like right now. I retreated to the bedroom to escape the allure of the magic black box with HGTV in it and write this post, but then I start talking to you know who in the other room on chat. I know, I’m putting my head in one hand and typing with the other as I tell you this. A.Shamed.

But don’t worry Sophie and I made it safely to the hand-holding-man-friends house in actual Queens so as to be further away from Astoria and its proximity to water. If I can reach the river in 15 minutes by walking I am not trusting its inability to reach me during Ms. Irene’s impending visit. So the cat and I packed up some things and made the 2 bus and a train sojourn to Middle Village. Far away from any body of water on sufficiently high ground. Big HUGS to the boy for helping with transport. It would suck doing that by myself and I am forever grateful.

Sophie did not care for the bus, and was very vocal about it as we rolled further and further away from the only home she’s ever known. I wonder what was going through her cat mind?

Sophie did not care for the train platform either. But then again neither do I so at least she wasn’t alone in her misery. She did however, quiet down a bit and accept her traveling fate, plus people kept staring at her, and she might have liked that, I dunno she didn’t say.

Mostly my weekend looked like this.

Was this all too much? She might have been fine or happier to be in her own apartment alone with the food robot all weekend. But I would not. I would not have felt at ease knowing that something could happen to her while I was away watching cable and eating brownies. Even if that chance is very slim, I would not be myself if I didn’t bring her. I’m never going to complain about being “inconvenienced” for a couple of days. I’d rather be over-prepared and feeling sheepish than arrogantly under-prepared and dead.

I’m not going to lose any sleep over whether or not this was an “overreaction” by Bloomberg. And I’m also accepting my no work freebie from the office tomorrow. I will avoid what is certain to be a horrible commute and resume the usual awful commute on Tuesday, namaste everyone.

I think its what heaven must be like. But Sophie’s heaven would probably have tuna.
