Here in Virginia Beach, we are in hurricane mode. Now, I am going to go on record as saying I do not believe Earl poses any threat to our area. In fact, having lived here long enough, I am conviced these meterologists play these things up even when they know full well there is no threat just to give them something to talk about...and talk about it they do (hello coverage starting at 4:30 tomorrow morning...seriously?!?). Anyways, we are supposedly getting ready to feel Earl's wrath which means we need to stock up on essentials. In my world, that means we need 3 very important things:
1. Pretzel M and M's: if you haven't tried them, you absolutely need to...the perfect salty/sweet combo in a small enough bite that the calories don't even count
2. a bottle of Riesling and maybe even some bubble gum vodka, depending on how long this guy is going to stay around. I love them both; it just depends on my mood, so we might as well have both on hand....I mean we might be stuck for days, right?
3. DVR (and even a generator if necessary to ensure DVR will work). Since returning to work, I no longer have a chance to watch my thought-provoking tv during the day (Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Real Housewives of (you name the city, I love it), Teen Mom, Jersey Shore etc). I am really looking forward to catching up this weekend, so you better not ruin it, Earl!
