complacency & 90210.

com·pla·cen·cy [kuhm-pley-suhn-see] – noun, plural -cies.

a feeling of quiet pleasure or security, often while unaware of some potential danger, defect, or the like; self-satisfaction or smug satisfaction with an existing situation, condition, etc.
 

if you've been following the weather & the latest updates on hurricane earl, then you've heard this word thrown around in the media.  even with a category four hurricane bearing down on the east coast, complacency is an issue.  case in point?  me.  we have batteries, water, propane.  our camping gear is easily accessible.  all of our outdoor furniture is put away.  i'm taking a picture inventory of the house today.

complacent.

or, maybe we're reluctantly complacent.  after all, i am packing bags today, too, just in case.

in all honesty, we have no reason to be complacent.


 
that red circle is my neighborhood.  that blue off to the right?  that's the atlantic ocean.  we don't live in a flood zone, believe it or not.  the potential for flooding is there, though {this is a hurricane surge map}.  however, we are not required to have flood insurance.  and, we don't.
 
potential flooding doesn't worry me.  the wind.  the fierceness. the uncertainty.  that's what worries me.  and, even though we are not planning to evacuate, i am starting to question our reason for staying.  and that is why i believe we are reluctantly complacent.  after all, we faired well during isabel.  the news is saying this is kind of like isabel {ha ha ha}.  but, this is earl, not isabel. 



on a different & completely unrelated note, do you know what today's date is?  quick, go back & re-read the title of this post.  i'll wait....

well?  did you read it?  do you get it? 

ha!  today is september 2, 2010 which is otherwise known as

90210
 



pretty clever, huh??  if any of you gen whatevers {what are we...x?} are with me, then you will agree that 90210 was the show to watch back in the day for ten years. 

i know i'll will be watching today - in between checking the weather for an earl update - catching reruns on the soap opera network.  shoot, who am i kidding, i try to catch reruns of 90210 every damn day.

at least going gaga over luke perry will help lessen my anxiety about earl.

Ahhhh 90210. I was a little too young for the beginning of the show...and honestly for the subject matter too. So I had to sneak behind my parents' backs to watch it. haha I tried to watch the new version but it is just not as good. Not at all.

We live on an island and we aren't in a wind or flood zone. I found that so weird when we got our insurance.
