We’ve already run out of tacos.
Last night, about 12:30am, the power went out. Since I didn’t have anything else to do, and since whoever designed my house was an idiot, I went to bed. Why is the designer of my house an idiot? Because they installed a gas heater that has an electric blower on it. When the power goes out, all I have is hot water. Hooray for hot showers by candlelight. Not so great when you have a house that leeches all of your climate control efforts to try to adjust the actual climate of the Earth. Climate change is caused by my house. (Gasp!)
Since my options were: a) wait to freeze to death in my office and b) wait to freeze to death in my bed, I opted for Option B. I hear it is just like falling asleep. What better way to freeze to death than by actually being asleep? Plus, I had just eaten the last of the tacos, so the only thing to live for was chili cheese burritos made over the camp stove.
Since I opted to die with my Batman pants on, and since it got COLD in my house last night, I slept the sleep of a thousand dreams. I can’t remember any of them, but I had them. I counted.
No, seriously, I slept ten hours. Then, the power came back on and the heater started working again. And I got hot and woke up.
That is one reason this post is going up so late. The other is that the power keeps flicking on and off. I then reset the Innernet and power back on the computer just in time to retype the last few sentences and add a few more before it goes out again. On that note, you should read Furious Jessy’s new post and then watch this:
I’m off to shower and read.
See ya’ tomorrow.
More soon. ~SC
