Well, I'm hitting the road in mere minutes. The company's shipping us all up to Natchez, MS for the time being to wait out this hurricane which appears to be coming right for us.

If you have a chance, I'd get the fuck out of New Orleans. You really don't want to be here if there's four feet of water in the streets and the power's out for two weeks, I'd rather be stuck on Aunt Edna's couch in Baton Rouge.

That's it, hope everyone fares ok, now I'm off to go sit in the parking lot called the interstate.

There's a fellow I work with. We'll call him Ol' E. He says lots of great things. It is my mission to document them.

Ol' E: You seen that Constantine yet?
Me: Nah. Probably gonna check it out soon, though.
Ol' E: Yeah, my brother got it. He said it was pretty good. A A+ picture. So I know I got to see it, 'cause if he say it's good then it's a must see.
Me: Yeah, it looks pretty cool.
Ol' E: Yeah, I like movies like that. That tell biblical stories and stuff.

I've gotten quite a few phone calls from friends wondering what the word around the watercooler is about what Hurricane Dennis is going to do. I suppose because of the nature of the company I work for, people assume we have some sort of "Spidey Sense" about what's going to happen. It's not entirely true, but people here are more firm with their gut feelings about these things than other people I've talked to.

Anyway, I'll keep it all here so that I don't have to make a thousand phone calls. As of right now, no one here expects this to turn head for New Orleans. If things change for the worse, I'll be contacted Saturday around noon with evacuation instructions and I'll be sure to update everyone here.

I repeat, there are no plans to leave at this moment and everyone involved here at work is pretty sure it's headed for the Pensicola area. Over and out.

I have a manager at my company, let's call him Manager Doofus. Here's how a telephone call from Manager Doofus to me went today:

Phone: Ring. Ring.
Smarmy IT Dude (me): Brent here.
Manager Doofus: Hey, how big is three megs?
SID: Depends, what are you doing with it?
MD: Uh, it's from (client company).
SID: Well, is it being emailed?
MD: Uh, yeah, sure.
SID: Then three megs shouldn't be a problem from the office.
MD: Yeah, but how big is it?
SID: It's about as much as two floppy disks hold.
MD: But these are CDs (Editor: don't ask me).
SID: ...
MD: So how much is that.
SID: Three megs is about as much as two floppy disks hold.
MD: How many pictures would fit in that?
SID: That depends on a lot of different things.
MD: Well, they're small.
SID: If they're at a small resolution with low quality, you could probably fit well over thirty of them. If they're larger, could might only be able to fit a few, if any at all. It depends.
MD: So, it can fit about thirty, ok.
Phone: click.
Like most of these conversations, I can't possibly glean what he needs from the context, and directly asking is like trying to nail jello to a wall. So I simply hang up the phone confident that his ego is probably too big to allow him to call me back and ask me the same stupid questions all over again (not that it's stopped him before mind you).

Well, the Wrath of God is pretty much headed to my home town, and my company being the catastrophe bandits we are, have decided to move our entire operation to Shreveport, LA so we can keep working while our base of operations is pummeled by an angry god.

I'll try to keep you all updated as to my status from here, but Jesus, this isn't going to be fun.
