Please excuse the dry and stained cuticles. H&M Deep Deep Sea was a little stain-y. Anyway, I love Play Date (middle and pinky). It reminds me of another favorite, Essie Splash of Grenadine, but it is way more purple while SoG is decidedly pink-leaning. Play Date is just a happy, bright purple with fuchsia tones to it. I've posted on Boxer Shorts before (pointer and middle), and rest assured that it has become one of my very favorite polishes. I find it to be a very soothing color.
Being a Midwesterner I've really only had to deal with outrageous snow (I used to live in the "snow belt") and funnel cloud touch-downs. Now I live on the east coast, and I have to deal with hurricanes. At first I thought it wasn't going to be that big a deal. Now I know that this is likely untrue. The subways shut down at 7 last night, so I'm all alone-y on my own-y in Harlem, waiting out the storm. My school cancelled classes today since no one could feasibly do the commute. I was supposed to have a midterm today in one of my classes, so I'm pretty irritated that we're not going to take the test. Yeah, I'm that kid. C'mon, I memorized like 80 slides of 19th century photographs that basically all look the same. I'm ready to take this test. But I guess it'll wait another week.
On Saturday morning I made a beeline to Target to get some supplies. Unfortunately so did the rest of the island. But I did manage to get a huge case of water, many batteries, and this.
A little battery powered lantern. Now I can read JSTOR articles (like the one you see in the background) like a little camper. I probably won't need this, though. My building has a generator, so even if we do lose power it'll be okay. As long as my phone is charged and I have water I'm not too worried. Plus I got some food essentials yesterday.
Like candy corn. Okay, don't worry. I got some canned food too. And cereal. So I'm set just in case something bad does happen. I won't lie, though. I'm pretty freaked out that the subways are shut down and that I can't move around the island. I'm pretty sure they closed the bridges too, so no one can get on or off. Just like in The Dark Knight Rises, as I told Ben. I really hope Joseph Gordon Levitt doesn't try to save a busload of children.
Alright, I'm outta here. To my fellow east-coasters, stay dry, stay warm, stay inside. And buy some candy corn.
By the way, if anyone is having trouble viewing my blog, please e-mail me and let me know. My traffic is down and a couple people informed me that they're getting malware warnings. I deleted and rebuilt my blogroll in case that was the problem, but I'm not sure. Thanks ladies.
