Typhoon Kong Rey Update

Patty Coleman and Angelo VillagomezAfter almost 2 months of not drinking, my tolerance level has dropped to that of a freshman sorority girl. I drank four beers at our post game banquet last night and passed out around 12 AM. Thank you Sarah and thank you Tyce for checking my room and waking me up in time to make the flight back to Saipan.

So my suggestion for getting through tomorrow's typhoon is to just drink yourself into a stupor. Governor Fitial has put the islands of the CNMI under Tropical Storm Condition II. All non-essential government employees (isn't that everyone?) were sent home from work early. Even Pizza Hut is closed!

It rained on and off most of the day today, but it hasn't been very windy. The sun has set for the day and by the time it rises tomorrow, Saipan should be experiencing Category 1 or Category 2 storm conditions.

I'm going to go find some grub, then I'm going to come back and hunker down.

Hate to put in a shameless plug, but Java Joe's will remain open from our usual hours of 6:00 a.m. - Midnight. The aircon, internet, and bathrooms will all be functional.

Woke up the next morning thinking, "I hate alcohol!"

So much easier to blame the alcohol instead of myself!

It was a real treat being able to drink a dark beer for a change...even if it was just Amber Bock.

I'm still fantasizing about that buffet spread at the banquet. I think I ate about 40 shrimp.

Yes, I loved the deep, fried shrimp tempura too!
