I love champagne. Well, I love alcohol, in general. Especially when I'm having a bad hair day.

On this day in 2001

On this day in 2001 an overseas phone call awoke me early in the morning. It was a friend who was living in London and she was panicking because she couldn't get through to her boyfriend, who lived in NYC.

Why, what happened, I asked? 

I'm not exactly sure, she said, but I think someone attacked the WTC buildings; it's all over the news. Will you please keep trying to get through to him?

I said I would, hung up and tried a few times to call him.
Next phone call: It was work.

Somyr is Brandon OK? (He was my boyfriend at the time. He was also a US Marine.) Yes, he's sleeping right next to me. Why?

Have you seen the TV? I think we're going to go to war.

I turned on the TV and watched the second plane hit the last standing tower.

here on the east coast the day is weirdly similar to our
collective "9/11"...beautiful..sunny...cloudless...

i came down after sleeping late and caught the
tragic scenery just as u did..with the 2nd plane..and my sister
saying "ohmygod it's the end of the world..."

9 yrs later, war war war...we are all used to it again...a few yrs there in the 1990's without a war...but now an endless one..unless..

the miracle finally happens: world peace...and there IS world peace, at least where I am...so lets put all the "where i am"'s together to get a clear blue sky again..
