Here Comes The Rain... And The Wind... And The Flooding... And...

"We live in a world that is beyond our control, and life is in a constant flux of change. So we have a decision to make... keep trying to control a storm that is not going to go away
 or start learning how to live within the rain."

~Glenn Pemberton
Hurting With God

Well, it seems the Bay Area is a mere hours away from the Storm Of The Century. LOL. No, not the Stephen King one, the good old fashioned one, with hard rain, lots and lots of wind and hopefully a good lightning bolt or two! I love lightning! The more thunder the better! It's wonderful, life affirming stuff, well, all except for the damage. Damage isn't fun. And big storms aren't much fun when they spoil your previously planned fun. Take for example the plans Alan and I had for today. We were going to the Orinda Theatre's free showing of the classic holiday movie of "A Christmas Story." It was going to be an amazing amount of fun, especially since there are two special guests coming, Zack Ward and Scott Schwartz. You know... Scut Farcus and Flick. 

And the best part? I could win a major award, by playing the live trivia game that the hosts play with the crowd prior to the film. Like when I won back in October, two gourmet cupcakes, which were decorated as the wheels, on Rosemary Woodhouse's baby buggy. You know Rosemary as in Rosemary's Baby! LOL. Who knows, this months might be in the shape of a seductive leg with a lampshade on it. LOL. Which do you eat first? The lampshade or the foot? OMG... I want to go so bad. Please storm... be windy, be rainy, be thundery, fill the sky with lightning, but please don't keep me from seeing one of my favorite movies of all time on the big screen, like it was meant to be seen.

Wonderful! I hope you get to go too and I hope you win a major award.
I love that movie. Other than it is awesome, my name is Ralph.
Don't shoot your eye out.
