Go Chris! You can do it!

I sent Chris a one-line email this morning:
There's a headline in the Yahoo News that "Chris may become hurricane." I'm all excited and happy for you.

And got back:
Apparently I had a go in 1994 too, but unfortunately I merged with an extratropical baroclinic zone southeast of Newfoundland and lost my identity.

I'm aiming for a more sustained and successful experience this time.

I know we're all rooting for him. Unless you're in his path or something.

New Orleans bloggers are definitely not digging it so much.

You know, I didn't even read the news about Hurricane Chris, either when I wrote to Chris or when I posted. When I just checked, it said Hurricane Chris was becoming disorganized (HAH!) and moving west, north of PR. I hope it dissipates harmlessly. We aren't wishing any additional grief on the Gulf.

Sorry, no offense taken. We're just a leetle bit jumpy down here.

On the other hand, why is it that hurricanes are the only disasters that have names bestowed upon them? You never hear about Earthquake Bob or Tsunami Alice or Tornado Jim.

All of those other distasters are hit and runs, so we never get their names.

They're just one-night-stands, no long buildup, no flirting and wondering if this time it's for real, barely any foreplay at all. They just show up, mess with you, and leave you embarassed that you didn't even know their names.

Natural disaster as "seduce and destroy." Wow. I have seen Katrina described as the kind of gal that shows up one night all wet and wild, and in the morning takes your car, your house and everything in a 100-mile radius.

I met Earthquake Bob. Bob "Northridge," he called himself. The jerk.

What happened to, "I don't use metaphors anymore," Megan?

Though, I think I like yours better than mine.

Looks like he's going to run out of steam and dissipate harmlessly...

It isn't like Chris to be a tease. It's for the best though. Hope he didn't get you too worked up.
