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.
