Life without the internet - or power

  • 6th Oct, 2014 at 4:45 PM
When we woke up yesterday morning there was no power over a huge swathe of the city which was a bit annoying as we couldn't make espresso coffee or a hot breakfast. It got more than a bit annoying though as the day went on and we shivered in the 14C of the current antarctic blast. I read with a blanket over me and Greg took to bed with his radio for most of the afternoon. I have a camping stove that went all round Europe with me so we could boil water, but in the evening we drove to a suburb with power and had some dinner. That drive was the first time I'd been warm all day.

The power's still out today but it came on at work so that's where I am. I heard home should have power late tonight but I'm not holding my breath after all the other false predictions.

And what do we got for compensation? Maybe $50 but probably zilch. Why yes, I'm somewhat pissed off to say the least.

I have to say though, that the Kindle's great for reading after dark. [hugs Kindle]

Vila goes into a bar and meets...

  • 6th Oct, 2014 at 4:53 PM
I am once again going to do the [community profile] intoabar challenge, yet another in the now longish series of Vila meeting people in all sorts of spaces and times. However I'm running short of crossover fandoms as I've covered several, and not just in various bars either.

Any suggestions?

I've got one fandom. I need two or three more. Also posted on Dreamwidth, with comment count unavailable comments.
