me in atlantic city
2007 by elaine radford
me posing as a rich person who doesn't have to pay for anything in atlantic city, yep, those days will not come again!

I haven't said much about the storm. I try to avoid some of the worst of the images, but I know there is a large loss of life, certainly by the standards of the northeast, and I have heard rumors about massive destruction at Atlantic City and Cape May and other places out on the water. Don't know what to say. Some of these places, I think, will never be rebuilt. Certainly, Biloxi was never the same after Katrina.

I don't know the details, but apparently Trump has made an ass of himself. He always makes an ass of himself, so I'm not too surprised. I'm more concerned about the employees. Trump just declares bankruptcy or gets some other family or government handout and continues to live like a billionaire on nothing but his loud mouth. He'll be fine. It's the regular people I worry about. Maybe there's a tiny bit of recovery but it's a terrible time to be seeking a new job in the casino industry.

On a happier note, we seem to have a decent quantity of satsumas this year, so I have started on the Christmas gift project. Last year, I think people mostly got rock swap items.
