Explosion in NYC  
*sigh* Good times when shit hits the fan in NYC. At around 6:15 PM a steam pipe exploded on 41st and Lexington Ave. I actually work right there on 47th and 3rd, but thankfully I left at around 5:30 and didn't decide to stick around until 6:30. Of course, the media is going bonkers, the 4,5,6 trains were shut down, and it's "chaos." Apparently, the explosion created a huge crater, which has steam billowing out of it and muddy water shooting up like a geiser. Reporters said that people started running in a mob to get away not knowing what it was, and people in office buildings fled. For some odd reason, NBC keeps saying "this does not seem to be sinister." Who the hell is writing their lines? Sometimes I think the media, instead of giving us the facts we need, just makes it worse by whipping everyone up. Homeland Security is saying it's not terrorist related, but who knows.

Ahhh my mom works right there!! I had no idea. She seemed fine when I called her a while ago. Hmm..

I saw about that on the news last night. It looked pretty bad.

If it was just a gas explosion (or whatever) then someone has some explaining to do.

Also, I know what you mean about the authorities/media ratcheting up the tension.

Over here, some Muslim guy only has to sneeze and there'll be half a dozen reporters on hand to assure the public the sneeze wasn't terrorist-related (which of course makes everyone think it is).

Glad you didn't get caught in it, at any rate.

Yeah, thank jeebus for small favors. *sigh* I have three articles to write in the next 5 hours, which obviously ain't happening. Just shoot me...OR, you can tell me if Faith is going to be in the new ficcie? =)

I honestly don't know. I'm leaning towards: not much. But who knows?

The last couple of days I've had Faith on the brain. She's really interesting. I wish there was more out there with her, both fic and art wise. Because I apparently can't commit to any fic I do, I've decided that before I write the Spike/Dru request, I want to do an AU AtS:1 Spaith set right after the body swap ep. Spike sans chip, Faith totally whacked out. That's just asking for trouble.

Come to think of it, have you ever written Faith before? Can't recall any fics of your where she pops up.

I've given her a line or two here and there in the S/B but apart from some porn I did for a ficathon, not really. I like her but have never wanted to get inside her.

In Bittersweets canon Xander leaves Anya for her but Faith dies before they can marry.
