I went outside and OH... well gee... there's a tree on my house. On my house. A friggin' tree. Not good. Said tree, on my house, has poked 2 holes all the way thru the roof, on the awning part. Not sure what that means for the rest of the roof, but somehow I'm thinking... that can't be good. Upon further inspection, it seems there is quite possibly several new nature made skylights... in my attic.
That can't be good either.
While trying to figure out wth... daughter noticed... said tree took out another tree on it's way down. It is now the only thing holding up that side of the fence. This tree seems to have taken out yet another tree that is... well... on my house. No holes in roof from 3rd tree, I think. Somewhere in there is a bonus... um...yeah, I think.
We have... tree dominos. Does not rock.
The land lord has tried to duct tape the holes, and surprise surprise... you can't duct tape a roof. Yeah, I know. Thanks for trying. Please remove trees and make me a roof... sans duct tape. 'cuz, ya know... that'd be cool.
Blah Blah Blah... tree on my house.
Yesterday's motto of fuck everything and become a pirate... totally appropriate.
Yeah... how about some books.
A couple of new releases I was eyeballing this week...well... before the whole When Nature Attacks thing.

Alex Brady was looking for some excitement in his life, but nothing could have prepared him for what a trip to Tuscany would bring him—excitement, yes, but with an undercurrent of danger that could possibly end up costing him far more than the price of the vacation.
When Alex tells his best friend Russ of his proposed trip to Tuscany, Russ tries to dissuade him, especially when Alex explains he’ll be renting a car and making his own way around a foreign country. Russ is sure Alex will get lost or mugged.
On his first night in Florence, Alex meets Gavin Andrews, a handsome Scotsman, and looks forward to a more than pleasant start to his ‘trip of a lifetime’.
But Gavin disappears without a word, and though disappointed by the Scot’s apparent lack of interest Alex continues with his tour of Tuscany in his rented car, staying overnight at the Villa Lorenzo, a converted farmhouse run by two gay men, John and Alfredo.
Alex is shown a portrait of Lorenzo, the original owner, and that night Alex has a strangely sensual dream, that comes to an abrupt halt when Lorenzo warns him that Gavin is in danger.
What follows is far more excitement than Alex ever bargained for – a kidnapping, a murder, and ultimately an offer of marriage!
Truly, for Alex this is the trip of a lifetime.
Christopher Borgasian has spent the last seven months painstakingly breaking up with a lover he’s adored for three years: heroin. Now he’s trying to make it on his own—without the drugs, without the family that rejected him for being gay, and, seemingly, without a friend in the world.
The night before Chris leaves a sober-living facility to pursue his uncertain future, a stranger named Denny shows up in his room. From then on, Denny returns whenever Chris needs him the most, always vanishing as mysteriously as he appears. Chris desperately needs emotional and physical intimacy, but who is Denny, really? And can Chris believe in him when it also means believing in unconditional love?
