Far be it from me to presevere...

I am sitting in the dark, in my pajamas, freezing.

Do you want to know why?

Too bad, I’m going to tell you anyway. :)

I was working at the computer, frantically typing away and so focused that I had yet to even do such basic grooming as combing my hair when suddenly and without warning the overhead light flickered once, twice, thrice and went out.

Now this isn’t too terribly shocking, just problematic as it is the only light in this cave-like room and requires those long fluorescent bulbs. I don’t keep those just lying about. So this will require a trip to the infamous Wal-mart (social epi-center of the world).

But that does not explain the cold, and I am, as I said, freezing.

Not a full three minutes after the light decided that state holidays apply to more than just human state employees, the heater declared it’s own strike.

Literally: Rattle, rattle, choked gurgle, bad smell…dead.

Stone. Cold. Dead.

In one of the first cold-er snaps we’ve had this winter. >.>

Sabotage ranks very, very high on my list of possible rationales for the sudden onset paralysis that seems to be affecting everything connected to a wall outlet. That, or really faulty wiring.

But most importantly, I am now faced with a very serious decision. I can either attempt to keep working under these harsh conditions -or- I can snuggle up under the covers with a flashlight and read more of The Never Ending Story.

Hmmm….I’ll leave it up to you to guess what I’ve decided. :) I can only hope that your Sunday is this productive. Hehehe.

[1] Take your LJ username and replace each letter with the corresponding number (A=1, B=2, etc) : 10,1,13,1,12,25,14
[2] Add all of the numbers together to create a kind of super number : 76
[3] Add the digits of the number together: 13
[4] Find the post of this number in your LJ. If you don't have that many posts, add the digits together again.
[5] Take the digit you noted in step 3 [or 4 if you added the digits together again], and count that many words into the post : little
[6] Use the resulting word in a google image search, and select a picture from the first page:


  • Nine months...

    So it's been about 9 months since I last posted anything. Things have been... well, you've been alive too, so you know what they've been. Thirteen…

  • It's already May!?!?

    Okay, so a lot has been going on. More than I have the energy to really get into at the moment (or maybe even ever) so I'm not going to bother even…

  • Christmas!

    Apparently I never got around to posting this year's Christmas ornaments. I blame this deadly funk I've had. I almost never get sick but when I do,…
