Other Sandy’s of Note

Lookout. I’m on a tear. This insomnia thing is not treating me well tonight, but it’s helping me to crank out some content that I hope you all are enjoying.

My last post about cable companies guaranteeing us that the power is going to go out because of this hurricane named Sandy got me thinking about all the other Sandy’s out there. Well first, of course, there’s my aunt, Aunt Sandy — an exceptional dentist in the suburbs of Philly — and (being a Grease-ball… loaded statement there) Sandy Olsson, the fictional heart throb from the movie Grease.

So who else is out there? Well, me and my insomnia are here to help answer that.
