Today was just so strange. I should have realized it
when my phone woke me at 7:30 at the caller ID said it
was my mother. She told me about the World Trade
Center. My response was "Your joking, right?" She
would never joke about something like that, I just
couldn't immediately process that it had happened.
Everyone I was worried might be there turned out to be
somewhere else. Apparently one of my cousins was in
one of the buildings when it happened. He was on the
first floor, and is okay. It is just a little disconcerting. I
keep wondering if there are friends who were in there
that I am not thinking about, I certainly did not expect my
cousin to be there.
My family and I were going to get together with my one
of best friend's family in LA. My parents aren't
anticipating being able to make it now (their flight was
supposed to be on thursday), nor is my best friend,
though his mother and sister are already there. I may
still go, but if I do anticipate that it will be faster to drive
than it will be to go through the heightened security
Someone setup an internal rebroadcast of CNN via
quicktime at work. One of my testing machines just
played it all day. I felt physically ill watching some of it.
