Truth in Advertising

I just went on Connecticut Light & Power's web-site and read how they had many options to help me reduce my use of electricity. Which is true, as my use of household electricity has been cut by 100% for the foreseeable future thanks to Hurricane Irene. I'm pretty sure we'll see September before we see power again.

So far our losses are limited to several small trees, the power, and one fish. I suspect the other fish aren't long for this world unless the filter kicks in soon. Maybe if we occasionally stirred the water? I have no idea. I don't expect these figures to directly rise since the weather is now beautiful, but if we don't get some power soon there are going to be some indirect casualties as boredom sets in. Honestly I think people in the pre-Industrial times were so goddamn nasty to each other because there wasn't anything to do once it got dark.

The lesson, as always, is that cable-TV porn solves everything.

time to haul out the candles (yes, including the one that looks like a penis because i know you have one) and start playing monopoly after dinner. of course, after the kids go to bed you can play strip monopoly with your wife.

I'm going to assume that by now you've stopped being powerless. Glad you survived the wrath of Irene!

Jesus christ, Limpy... post something already! A poorly written sentence, and ill-conceived idea, a profanity-laced exclamation... anything at all.
