The Outbreak

Saturday, June 18, 2005

It was a beautiful day today, so do you know what we did? We went out on the deck and fired up the grill. And as we looked around we saw that half the neighborhood was doing the same thing. People were even running food up to the crews at the intersections of North Jerusalem & Newbridge and North Jerusalem & Bellmore. It was like a block party almost.

Which still isn't normal. It's just abnormal in a nice way.

On a not unrelated note, some people are going to start needing to make money again soon.

Hey all, Bill D from south Jersey here. Havn't posted in a while, we've had a few blackouts (2 electircal, 1 of the other).

Davey, Glad to hear you're safe and finally in a stable, more sane situation.

I want to make it clear to everyone that I've been posting my personal events truthfully. Am i the only one who's heard San Diego was basically wiped out? Tony, a NJ state trooper told me SD had been quaranteened, and bombarded heavily the last few days of March when this all started. When the "rioting" couldn't be contained by roadblocks they went to heavy weapons, daisy cutters even. He had mentioned a human (inhuman?) tide fleeing Mexico. I had assumed it was all true, I guess I just took him at face value because he's a cop. Am I the only one who's heard this? anyone from San Diego out there? If I've upset anyone or caused undue worry I really am sorry, but I was only passing along what I had assumed was true. fuck tony if he was lying, i'll fucking kill his ass.

Bill again here.
Had to take a break there. these fingers are driving me crazy. should be 100% in another 2-3 weeks, but i'm still typing with one hand. the ribs 5-7 more weeks. I know it could be so much worse, but keeps me in a shitty mood. i hate to complain knowing how lucky I am to have shelter, food, guns, and prtective neighbors.

there were a few BBQers here too, Sean. Almost turned into a block party. a party with guns and weird fooods, but hey, great weather. Didnt' really get happy. too many people missing people, but it did serve to provide a quick census and a brief moment of semi-normalcy.

You've got me thinking: what's going to happen if this starts to blow over? will I start getting electric bills again? can we bounty-hunt revs for cash? who's accepting money nowadays? it's intimidating, really. i'm sure the rich will find a way to make money off this whole thing. I'm almost scared of it. it's starting to feel too normal, like I miss being in emergency mode. i sort of felt like this in, say, October 2001, like i've finally adusted to the wrongness of this, don't take my new normalcy away.

IS this going to blow over? has anyone seen a Rev starve to death? (re-death?) what the fuck? like someone said, if there's an earthquake and a fresh batch of revs pops up, all this progress is going to go poof! especially if people have gotten lazy. I'm just glad the graves are staying still, there's two cemetaries near here. i don't want to even think about it.

I'm starting to get freaky ideas. Frankly, i'm depressed, lonely and stir crazy. there's only so much reading even I can do, and i'm jumping at every little noise again. I feel really isolated. I have a sister and brohter in new hampshire that no one has been able to contact since March. we figure that's more likly the phone lines down and not repaired. they're in teh woods, so probably safe from Revs, but not much in the way of supplies unless they're hunting, which is entirely possible. or it's wilderness nutjob anarchy. i dunno.
One of my brothers; I can barely stand to talk to because he told me how he had to shoot his 9 year old when she turned and was about to bite his wife. how do you talk to someone after that? yeah, Tom, had a nice steak today, tell the niece that's still human her uncle says hi. yeah. he was lucky enough to find my parents bodies too, but at least he got some of my dad's rifles out of the house. John's okay out in suffolk county. as okay as people are nowadays. i dunno. whatever.
