Goodbye earthly belongings, hello federal aid! Actually, I don't know if I'll get any, but we called and and opened a case or got a ticket number or whatever the hell happens.

Anywho, they said we'll be hooked up with an "adjuster" who we'll have to meet up with to survey the "site" to which Brenda added, "if you're going to send him soon, make sure he has a boat." I put adjuster in quotes because word around here is that FEMA's adjusters are 80-year-olds with one foot in the grave that don't survey damage as much as they just stand there and say, "yup, looks like ya got some water in here."

Which I suppose is understandable, I mean, whenever the President declares that a place is a disaster area, it's really not the time to be trying to figure out whether the water damage to your carpet is due to flooding or wind blown rain. I suppose they just send them out to perform a perfunctory check and make sure that all your shit actually got fucked, and ours did. Boy howdy.

I'll get one if it will make me forget that almost all of my worldly possessions are floating around in smelly poo water right now.

I think that Brent misses his action figures, especially Razor, the most.

I just got a DS. I've got Warioware Touched, Nintendogs, and Advance Wars Dual Strike.

I love my DS. It's almost enough to make me forget that there is a family of looters enjoying my Gamecube and GBA.

so i read in yesterday's times-picayune that the money from fema may be a loan - not simply free cash. after all of this is said and done, those of us who do not fit particular governmental criteria(which was not mentioned in the article)could quite possibly be sending this money back! the moral: don't buy stupid shit.

don't say i didn't warn ya.

At least the peeps here in Natchez are sympathetic to us refugees. McRae's at the the mall even has 30 dollar shirts for 6.50 and shiznit like that.
I can't imagine what kind of crap we're going to have to deal with in Hammond, prolly much like you are experiencing in B.R.

my report on baton rouge:

air's cleaner than new orleans.

weather's a little cooler and there's usually a breeze.

they've got hella churches.

i was in a store sunday. it was like 11 in the morning. some lady tried buying some beer and all hell broke loose. the manager kept saying over and over that she should come back at 12:30. i know that new orleans is permissive about alcohol, but blue laws are fucking retarded. the idea that there is a day when you can't buy a swath of consumables "just cuz" is silly. the idea that you can't buy those things except after a certain time on a particular day is beyond my grasp.

the mayor may be welcoming us with open arms, and the churches may be, but it's not hard to catch the hostility that many people here feel towards people from new orleans.

and that's what i know.

since the updates are few and far between, let me tell you about shreveport:

the air is cleaner.

the weather is a little cold and breezy... pretty nice actually.

they have riverboat casinos.

they have a boardwalk that is brand new with some pretty cool stores on the riverfront.

they stop selling liquor at 10:30!

we went to a pretty big movie theatre on the boardwalk and saw The Brothers Grimm. There were 6 people in the entire theater including us. Nice change from the Palace theaters.

alcohol is about 15-20% more expensive here.

hmmm, that's about all I know.

looks like i'm staying in dallas for good. Christine and i both have jobs here so when the ins. money kicks in we'll get a house. Chalmette in an oil slick and the lake is a toxic waste dump. Gods country and the lake!
There are tons of jobs up here and the c.o.living is less then new orleans. If anyone is thinking of moving in the area call me. The dallas branch of s.p. richards is looking for people.

all i know is you'd better have grabbed that white memory card, cause doing all of the crystal chronicles again is going to be a major pain in the ass.
