Last night over 1,000 homes in South Orange County lost power in an "emergency power outage." My home was included in the 1,000. Power outages are something that happen to people who live in areas with weather, not something that happens here. I found two scented candles and lit them. I realized I need to buy flashlights and have working batteries in them. I puzzled over what to do with myself alone and in the dark for hours. (No wisecracks about that, m'kay?)
I read my Kindle which was fully charged. I wondered about whether or not hours upon hours of no electricity meant I should throw everything in the fridge and freezer out or if things would stay "cold enough" …????

Maybe I could have written something really witty when the power finally came back on late at night. But I was in a sleepy stupor, so I didn't. (I was going to tell you about how The Torturer saw my ass yesterday. Yes, he did! I flashed my ass this time, can you believe it?)
I'll tell you about that next week, I suppose. <blush>
