Storm Cell on Lifetime

Eighteen years ago, April and Sean Saunders watched helplessly as their parents were consumed in the wrath of a massive twister. Now April (Mimi Rogers) is a storm chaser seeking to understand every aspect of the forces that ripped her life apart, while Sean moved to Seattle where there is minimal chance of a twister touching down. As April is researching current shifts in weather patterns, she discovers that the path of Tornado Alley may be moving north…with Seattle as the new tornado hotspot. Immediately, she drags her boyfriend and rebellious teenage daughter to Seattle to warn Sean, a city Sheriff. Sean finds April’s theory ridiculous; and more importantly, he despises what his sister does for a living?basically chasing the ghosts of their parents. It isn’t long before odd weather phenomena begins to wreak havoc on the unassuming city, and April now realizes her prediction is horribly accurate. With a massive storm system brewing, and a category defying twister looming, April must fight against an entire city unwilling to believe, as well as two decades of her own nightmares and demons, in a desperate attempt not to let this deadliest of storms finally get the best of her and her brother.

I am not saying that I watch Lifetime.  BUT if you call and hear it in the background.  My ‘friend’ changed it to that station.

I do not like Fish, said Sam I Am

Public Service Announcement: The Salmon Bot
It’s probably foolish of me to do this, given what I’m about to tell you, but I will anyway.

There’s a bot going around at the moment which is not unlike the hat bot, whereby it initiates IM conversations with two people and relays messages back and forth. So it appears the both of you are IMed by a stranger and neither has any idea why or how it happened.

The conjecture is the bot is triggered by updating your LiveJournal. I guess it watches a new posts page or something. Short of friendslocking all one’s entries, I suppose the best solution is to remove your IM information from your profile page, or bury it in your plain text information section. Which is what I’m about to do.

Like the hat bot, this one uses variations on the name salmon: I’ve been hit by TyrannicalSalmon, NumerousSalmon and one other that I can’t recall. Maybe KindSalmon. So watch out for strangers whose screen names end in salmon. The kind thing to do is explain that it’s a bot and just go on your way.
