I love wasabi peas- and I loath tornados

I am actually getting some work done this afternoon. I'm sitting here with a Turbodog beer that I got from Brady. I am watching his cats, and he paid me in good dark beer. Its great beer, and even better with wasabi peas. I LOVE wasabi peas- especially the ones from Willy St. Co-op that aren't colored an unnatural green color. Who came up with this brilliant snack? Well- here's some wasabi history. I love how every few wasabi peas you get one that is so strong it burns- I don't like chilly pepper hot stuff, but that kind of "nose heat" is the best. And we have a tornado watch in effect. And a small creek flood watch. I think tornados are possibly the most frightening kind of weather ever. Thus, when the siren begins, I'll obsessively watch the nbc 15 storm tracker to see if we have to gather our cats and head for the basement. Meanwhile, the creek is very high and moving so fast that the ducks don't have to even paddle. Our back yard looks like a freakin' lake. The landlord came by and suggested that all we had to worry about was our basement storage flooding. So, Jo and I spontaneously decided to clean out our storage, since we needed to do that anyway. I discovered that Jo is slightly obsessed with keeping every box that anything we ever bought came in. She says it is "for when we move". We threw out a bunch of the empty boxes and kept a reasonable amount. Back to looking at prelim questions and trying not to become scared...
