Trinity Caillier only wants to go back home to Louisiana; now she may be forced to stay in Texas a little while longer, thanks to the remnants of what is now Hurricane Ike, which is slated to come into North Texas this weekend. She is not too happy about it.

Weds., Sept. 10, 2008, Fort Worth, Texas~

I can't believe this! 

Hurricane Ike isn't even slated to go into Louisiana (if he does, it'll be close, close; he's aimin' more for Texas now); yet I can't even go back home to Lake Charles!

Why?  Because of Ike.  He's the cause of all my miseries, why I am still here in stupid Fort stupid Worth, Texas!!  We've been here for a week, and I'm sick of it!! I want to return home to Louisiana!!

I'm so damn homesick, it ain't a bit funny!!  There's nothin' to do here; I've already played all my Cajun cd's, and I've already played all my games, entertained my brothers until I swear I am turning blue in the face!!  I want to see my friends, I want to see if my house survived the storm (Gustav)! 

It's like those damfool hurricanes are holdin' us hostage!! 

Now weather forecasters are tellin' us that parts of Texas can get over eight inches of rain; here, they're callin' for four to six inches, with the slight risk of tornadoes.  Wonderful!! I don't do tornadoes either; I've been in enough of 'em to know what that's like!  Ain't no fun!!  Especially since there's no shelters to go to!!

If I get through the remnants of Ike in one piece, it'll be a miracle!!  I stink like a fetid swamp full of dead things, my hair's a wild mess, and I resemble the Bride of Frankenstein! I look E V I L!!!!  Smell evil, too!

Maman and papa, they keep tellin' me to be patient, as we'll get home soon; soon can't come quickly enough!  I've done run out of patience; I'm an emotional basketcase!!

If I hear of one more hurricane pokin' its ugly wind-driven self into the Gulf, I'm going to shoot myself!! (NOT really, but I am fed up!!)  I will be sooooo glad when this stupid hurricane season is overwith! 

Don't know when I'll write in here again; hopefully the next time i do, I'll be on my way back to Louisiana!  I hate it here in Texas!!

~Trinity M. G. Caillier. :(

It is so heartbreaking to see the people in New Orleans having to vacate their homes again. My heart goes out to the victims. A heart-wrenching write.

That's an unending exodus which could have been avoided if the monies used to that harebrained war were used to protect the people of this Nation before running to save others lives leaving our own to drown.

Our little frined seems to have a Cajun temper as my own Acadian ancestors used to call it. Great update.

Can't say I blame you. On my way out of New Orleans prior to Gustav, I saw so many weary people and families having to leave their homes once more. And now Ike is on the way. I truly hope everyone can finally return to their normal lives soon.

Poor Trinity, chased out of Louisiana by one hurricane, kept in Texas by another. Excellent write of fear, frustration, loved the image of "wind driven self." May I borrow that? See what I can do with it, poem wise? =] Well done!

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

Boy Karen, this is so real that I'm actually feeling extreme fear for them. What a writer. Love, hugs and be safe, Bonnie
