this hurricane irene really has me thinking. did you know that my grandmother's name is irene. and she is currently residing in the eternal above. i can't help but wonder if maybe she pulled some strings somehow to get this disaster named after her. how awesome would that be?! i'd love to have a hurricane named after me! what a fun way to have the world remember you. i wouldn't want to be a devastating hurricane. i'd be more of a playful, tricky hurricane. like maybe i'd start off really strong, at a level 5 & scare everyone. then as i got closer to land i'd slow down to a mild storm & cause no real damage. maybe tear down a few random trees that would land in clear areas. but then just to get everyone's attention i'd go back out to sea & rage up real big again. then i'd come back to land as a little drizzle. no one would get hurt but i'd still be able to wreak a little havoc. i love it. i think i just may do this. so watch out for hurricane sara in about 100 years.
