So it's been a long few days and I apologize ahead of time if this is not really a funny one, but if it counts for anything at all, while sitting in my pitch black, cold apartment with my cat (sometimes with pants on), I thought of all sorts of ways that I could turn this tragedy into a really witty, light blog post! But it's kind of hard to do when so many people have lost their homes, lives, and loved ones after the power of Sandy blew through the East Coast. My thoughts and prayers go out to everyone who is without food, shelter, water, or loved ones nearby.
And all of this is to say that, while I promise to post something witty about what happened to me over the last few days, today can't be that day. Please send all of the good vibes you have the way of those who really need it right now. I am fortunate enough to have amazing friends who have taken me in, have power, food, warm water, and lots of laughs to share over these next few days while I'm still without power. CB's friends and family were also incredible with making sure I knew that I had a place to go if need-be, and many of them are still without power as I type this.
Hoboken was hit hard, and the sight of the National Guard going down my street this morning was sort of surreal, but my apartment is still standing - though dark at the moment - and everyone I know and love are safe and, at the very least, surrounded by their loved ones.
I promise to post tomorrow (Thursday) with something much lighter, but I wanted to THANK YOU all for checking in on me via Facebook, Twitter, on the blog, etc. It means the world that people who've never met me but read this little blog every day took the time to check in and make sure I was alright, and I couldn't be more humbled. You guys rock. I mean, I knew that, but still.....it was incredible, thank you.
Check back tomorrow afternoon so you can hear all about I pants-lessly avoided an intruder in my house and almost lit myself on fire while reading the Mindy Kaling book by candlelight for the second time. Stuff to look forward to!!
Thanks, guys!!! Much love!
