The Little Weirdnesses Of Life

There's this weird thing going on in my apartment. Actually, in all the apartments down the block, to hear the ComEd people talk. They said that half the building is blacked out -- but they seem to have meant "half by volume." My apartment is half-blacked out. No, really. The bedroom and the living room have power (hence me typing this), but the kitchen, hall, and bathroom don't. Weirdest blackout I've ever seen. I went out for lunch, because I didn't want to waste cold air opening the fridge, and I may have to buy dinner as well. I haven't even done the grocery shopping because of this.

AC part of the day with nothing for the rest of the day sucks, but AC part of the day with a fan for the rest of the day sucks much less. Turn a fan up high enough, and it's almost like AC. I've also heard that putting a bowl of ice water near a fan makes it perform kind of like AC. I'd test this theory out, except that the electricity in the kitchen is still out and there is no ice.

God. It made me want to move to Ireland.

Are you sure it was the AC problem and not, say, the tempting charms of Dot?

Keep telling yourself that :-)

The tempting charms of Dot, the tempting charms of a five time zones away, the tempting charms of anyplace with less than eight million people...let me count the ways...

Yes, well, self-delusion is the best kind, innit?

The power is back on, for the moment, so the fan is on. Given that it blacked out completely last night and then again for much of this morning, I'm going to wait on doing things like grocery shopping for a while.
