“In each of us two natures are at war… the good and the evil. All our lives the fight goes on between them, but one of them must conquer. In our own hands lies the power to choose. What we want most to be we are.” – Dr. Henry Jekyll

Chatty Bitches and Liberty

Yes... that's right... I am a Crack Whore. Well... that's my ranking over at the forums anyway. Being the Crack Whore isn't easy... I'm the only one dontcha know? Donna is getting close though... only like 250 more posts and she's there... but by then I'll probably be Super Crack-a-lackin Slutty Whore With Implants. I like the fact that I can now officially say I am a chatty bitch. Hehehehe...

-FOR EXERCISE PUPROSES ONLY-

I really hope people read that last line. So yeah... tomorrow... Hurricane "Liberty" will be hitting NYC in a tabletop exercise organized by the Mayor's Office of Emergency Management. Now to me... this is a curse. See, Louisianna had run a similar tabletop called Hurricane Pam in June of 2005. What happened? Well they ran the exercise for a category 3... and Katrina came on land as a Category 4 and kicked the shit out of them. Guess what "Liberty" is supposed to be??? Right... a Category 3.

A few months ago I supposedly had an article in Scrye published about gamers running FEMA Tabletop Drills. I was pretty adamant about it then... and still am... that the local officials will always take an "easier" route than the worst case scenario. Now as a gamer... if I was doing this... it would be a Category 5 storm, Far Rockaway and Coney Island would be washed off the map, Wall Street would go under 20 feet of water, the Statue of Liberty would be floating up The Avenue of the Americas, and there would be marauding bands of Beholders that had come up out of the subway to feed on the overgrown water rats we know as homosapiens.

Instead... tomorrow I go to "the bunker"... stand on the trading floor in front of the Grand Poobah as he stands at his pulpit... and auction off my services like a mercenary to the highest bidder to evacuate their people. I like the auction part... although I know if it ever was real... I'd be in SoHo... hunting Beholders.

Early day tomorrow... later gators...
