El Fuego

***Update***DUDES! This was post 300 here. Dang.
So it would seem that Southern California is burning. Perhaps I should consider relocating. There has been a fire raging just north of here since the fourth of July that will potentially burn until September. Then last night there was a fire in Griffith Park. The sky is a lovely shade of brownish gray and the sun looks like a blood orange. Vehicular is covered in ashes and I imagine it's only a matter of time before the inside of my apartment has a lovely layer as well. No doubt, a headache is soon to follow.
Earthquakes. Fires. Potential hurricanes. What's next? Locusts?
So just for shits and giggles, I was wondering what I would save should a natural disaster come to the 805. I think it would have to be my beautiful digital camera and my laptop. I have my music there and most of my pictures plus many personal documents. Methinks the actual paper albums would be too cumbersome to escape with.
What would you save? And I don't mean pets or people.

BAD RELIGION LYRICS

"Los Angeles Is Burning"

Somewhere high in the desert near a curtain of a blue
St. Anne's skirts are billowing
But down here in the city of the lime lights
The fans of santa ana are withering
And you can’t deny that living is easy
If you never look behind the scenery
It's showtime for dry climes
And bedlam is dreaming of rain

When the hills of los angeles are burning
Palm trees are candles in the murder wind
So many lives are on the breeze
Even the stars are ill at ease
And los angeles is burning

This is not a test
Of the emergency broadcast system
Where malibu fires and radio towers
Conspire to dance again
And I cannot believe the media Mecca
They're only trying to peddle reality,
Catch it on prime time, story at nine
The whole world is going insane

When the hills of los angeles are burning
Palm trees are candles in the murder wind
So many lives are on the breeze
Even the stars are ill at ease
And los angeles is burning

A placard reads
"the end of days"
Jacaranda boughs are bending in the haze

More a question than a curse
How could hell be any worse?

The flames are stunning
The cameras running
So take warning

When the hills of los angeles are burnin
Palm trees are candles in the murder wind
So many lives are on the breeze
Even the stars are ill at ease
And los angeles is burning

If you happen to see a flying horseman riding past your house, waving a sword and screaming out "Pestilence!", I'd think that might be a sign of sorts.....

I'd save my Chainsaw, Ax, Shotgun, Glock, ammo, hunting knives, Lap-top, Cell Phone, Motorolla portable walky talkies, and ipod.

If something like that were to truly go down it would be the wild west, baby. I'd need to hunt, make shelter, protect myself (and my dog), and entertain myself.

Just the necessities + internet porn = plenty to get by on until I found a sultry damsel in need with the urge to breed.

Nothing else matters.

Dogs and husband are safe you say? Hmm...did I say dogs first?

My camera. My scrap books for I'm a silly girl at times. My computer, or at the very least the external hard drive that houses all of my photos since I went digital. And um....check card? Purse? Yes. My purse. Money and iPod.

OH...and very first thing? My birth control pills. It seems that after any disaster the birth rate goes up. For me, that would be the real disaster...
