Anyone remember Gloria?

I was growing up in Hunterdon County (bordering Pennsy) and they called off school. Everyone was in a panic.

After living in Orlando for the past 14 years (and most especially Hurricane Charlie), it seems so funny in my memory. It was as amusing as watching Atlanta deal with snow flurries.

Diogenes: Anyone remember Gloria?


Yeah, I was six and living in Bergen County. My parents were having an addition put on our house and the tarps were blowing all over the place.

Kinda scary for a six-year-old.

I want to know who the idiot is that warned them. Do you know how many we could have gotten rid of?

Oh thank God. It has been WAY too long since we had a guido thread.

Some day I will see a guido thread and think "not another one of these." That day is not today. Please bring on the orange, spiky-haired ape-men.

This is how the world ends.

The Guidos are swept out to sea.
The tanning gel and lipstick gets into the water.
The fish turn orange, with popped fins.
The oxygen-generating aquatic plants all start driving IROCs.

In other news, Guidos will be applying hair gel liberally and standing outside for that authentic blow-out look.

maybe this will blow the bronzer right off them and the world will see how horrifically pale they really are

Was that in 1985? I was living in Queens then and we knew it was bad as the city closed the schools. Back then, they rarely closed NYC schools. Turned out to be nothing major in my neighborhood, aside from flooding in all the usual places.

The only bad thing that really happened to my family was that my dying grandmother took a sudden turn for the worst and my mother's flight got canceled so she didn't make it down in time.

/now in NJ, may move the deck chairs into the shed

I took a collarless Henley out of mothballs for today. All my collars will remain in storage until this passes.

Looking fly is one thing. Flying through the air over the boardwalk is another.

damageddude: Was that in 1985?


Sounds about right.

I remember my grandparents fleeing South Plainfield to our house in utter fear. We had worse thunderstorms and microburts than what Gloria was packing.

Here in NC (Raleigh area), I made the mistake of stopping at the grocery store at lunch time.
The hurricane shopping housewives were out in full force. I imagine it will be much worse after the work force gets out.

We're only supposed to get heavy rains and high winds with gusts up to 50mph. Sure, there will be some trees down and power outages but it's no reason to panic.

I lost power for a week and a half after Hurricane Fran in 1996.

Is it wrong that I have a Styx song playing in the back of my mind right now?

Please, please, Guidos - sail away.

I hope these guys are safe. Link (WOAHHHH!) Mandatory viewing for guido enthusiasts.

Who said that Guido threads are like Caturday, because, brother, you're wrong. Cats say stupid things and we kind of like cats. With Guidos we just point and laugh.

My favorite guido quote from another thread:
Vinnydoz007 As a native New Yorker and someone who has dated a girl from Staten Island, I can vouch for this awful reality that is the guido culture. Although calling it a culture is sort of an oxymoran. (see what I did there) Every day I see these people and just have to shake my head. However, it has to be said, that if women werent for some reason drawn to these huge huge dooshbags, then they would have no power at all. What we need to do is kill all the guido appreciating whores and the guido will go extinct as a result. However I would gladly accept the radiological fall out of a nuclear explosion on staten island. That island produces nothing but waste. However then we might be introduced to the super radioactive guido, which could be even worse. I dont know im not a scientist.

All that orange tanning gunk is going to wash off and further pollute the water there. New Jersey will become utterly uninhabitable...or, more so...

I will open a shelter here in Hell County, MD for all the Guidettes and big-haired Jersey Girls.

Wait a second, I grew up in Hinterdon County, Readington to be exact. I don't recall this hurricane but I do remember my parents talking about a bad storm that led to a lot of flooding in Bound Brook NJ prior to my arrival on this rock.

Jesus, I'm so glad I live where I do. All we have to worry about is the yearly raging wildfire and the occasional earthquake. You can keep that continuous rotation of TSs, hurricanes and all the rest of that BS to yourselves.

I don't think so, with the discouraged look on his face, and the fact that his lip gloss has worn off, I'd say he knows exactly where he fits in with his group of friends.
 
2008-09-05 02:38:53 PM  
why are they always striking a pose? god damnit.
someone should try photograph them unsuspectingly. i'd like to see what they look like in their natural habitat
