power outtage

Today there was: heat, thunder, rain, and tonight, 2.5 hours without power. But that's ok. Who needs working computers? Or TVs? Or stereos? Or swamp coolers? *eye twitch*

So, I had three candles burning in the bedroom, and, one each in the front room and kitchen. I spent the time reading Mercedes Lackey's "The Black Gryphon" by flashlight.

Tomorrow is a trip to Victorville (which according to Yahoo! was the 2nd fastest growing city in the U.S. in 2007) for an doctor's appointment for my mom and then shopping (BestBuy, CostCo, etc..) later.

At least you had some decent reading material. Read any of Naomi Novik's Temeraire novels yet? His Majesty's Dragon is book one, Victory of Eagles (book 5) came out Tuesday, I got it yesterday, semi-historical fiction, the Napoleonic Wars with dragons, awesome, just awesome.
WARNING: Do not read 4 without 5 in hand, vicious cliffhanger. We're talking Ryker ordering Enterprise to fire on Locutis here.
