Batten Down the Hatches

I don't have any hatches, actually. I don't think. But the Hurricane Naming Place of the World has released what they will be calling hurricanes for 2010.

Alex, Bonnie, Colin, Danielle, Earl, Fiona, Gaston, Hermine, Igor, Julia, Karl, Lisa, Matthew, Nicole, Otto, Paula, Richard, Shary, Tomas, Virginie, and Walter.

Dunno about you, but Hurricane Walter might make me giggle first. And Hurricane Earl. Not the fierce kinds of names I would be looking for, especially for winds that twirl cows around in the air. But at least they don't play that nonsense of 'oh, we'll have to meet it first to decided what we're going to name it. We don't believe in naming something before we've gotten to know his or her true being'.

I think they should just call 'em all Hurricane Lorraine and be done with it.
