Anna Mae Shoulda Ate That Damned Cake!

Well, I know you're tired of me apologizing for not blogging and/commenting on your blogs on a regular basis, but aside from the fact that my (home) computer is STILL not working, repercussions from Hurricane Ike still plague the city that I live in.

As of yesterday, 70% of our city was still without power (some are estimated to be down for up to 2 weeks) and children are out of school for the entire week! I was among the blessed few who only had to endure the day without cable on Sunday, so my power at home actually works---of course we have been lending a helping hand to those who were less fortunate in this situation. People in the community have had to throw out oodles and oodles of GOOD food because they can't refrigerate or freeze it, grocery stores and restaurants are closed (and out of ice and dry ice) in many places throughout the city, and 4 or 5 hospitals are operating on generators! I know our problems are just a drop in the bucket compared to folks in Texas and other parts of the south, but this is depressing!

So instead of spreading my crappy attitude all over Blogland, I decided to lay low.

That Ike is one BAD s.o.b. isn't he?

It certainly looked huge on the radar, when I caught those weather updates on TV

Tera said...

Yes Kofi, and it made its diagonal sweep and tried to take us ALL out!

So, I don't get the reference to the title. And I didn't get the comment on my blog about the photoshopped photo. And I thank you for visiting. And you didnt' notice I was hitting on your blog crush. whew.

Tera said...

NoR~Ike and Anna Mae Bullock? Guess you didn't watch "What's Love Got to Do With It?" the story of Ike and Tina???

Didn't I see chunks of hair on the bed in the first photo or do my eyes deceive me?

Where did you hit on him? Where? Where...I must make haste there at once!

Tera said...

Tina Turner that is...

NoRegrets said...

No, I don't really do movies that are about real people. I read biographies though, go figure.

Ah, you missed it. whew again.

Tera said...

NoR~don't make me pick apart your blog...where are you hitting on my...I mean...Torrance???

***I know you know well enough to know he abused her. In the movie, there is a scene in the restaurant where he tries to make her (Anna Mae/Tina Turner) eat some cake. She didn't want to, so not only did he smash the cake in her face, he beat on her...and in that movie, his rath was a force to be reckoned with.

Ike that is

Nance said...

LOL--we've been making Ike Turner jokes for a week around here. I got you, girl.

We never lost power at the Dept, just a big old tree limb, but it was hit or miss with damage and power. So sorry Ike laid you out.

Take care down there. We can wait. Try to stay sane and think on the positive side: with no school, there are no bad behavior notes home! (See how I did that?) ;-)

Tera said...

Nance~And I LOVE how you did that ;-)

NoRegrets said...

It's not on MY blog. He doesnt' visit my blog.

wrath

NoRegrets said...

Tera said...

NoR~You just HAD to get me on that word huh...Hmph!

Was it the Jonesin' for Jones reference in his post about his "backstroke?" Tell me, tell me!

Tera said...

NoR~I see you stand corrected too! ;-)

NoRegrets said...

Yes, I stand corrected.
Aw, I'm just joking. I just asked a simple question on his 500th post thing.

Tera said...

NoR~I'll be the judge of that! I'll be back...

Tera said...

WOMANWITHnorEGRETS~I am flabbergasted! You better watch that shit!!!

..........But you know what? I can't even hate, LOL!

NoRegrets said...

Tera and Nor in an Indonesian death cage match...

NoRegrets said...

Oh my... I only JUST got this morning the joke. Hurricane Ike. Ike and Tina Turner. Oh my...

Tera said...

NoR~LOL!

NoR~It's okay dear, now pick up your helmet and board the short yellow bus to work.

NoRegrets said...

How did you know the color of my bike?! ;-)

Tera said...

NoR~LMAO! I'll think the helmet is for your bike if that makes you feel better. ;-)

I got a whole week off paid during the floods this Summer. Two years ago when my house got hit by a tornado, we were without power for at least four days and without a roof for a couple of weeks. I had to stay at friends houses and it sucked. I feel for you guys and I hope you're getting the aid you need. I've had it up to HERE with natural disasters.

Tera said...

Churlita~You and me BOTH!
