It seems so long... by notquitenglish on 8 November 2004 4:15am
 
Hey everybody! How've ya all been? It seems so bloody long since I was on the Net, we've been without power and water for four days, living in the dark. Like bats. Except not as wingy. And we don't eat insects. And, in most cases, we're not as cute. Bad illustration. Never mind.

Ah, the land of the living again... :)

What caused your power cut? Was it a supply overload or weather conditions or something else? I am interested because of my electrical background.

No. She never paid her electricity bill.

Oh, ha ha TwoSheds.

(mutters)

Nah, we have this crap-ancient house with antiquated wiring (seriously the place could be a museum if it wasn't in such rough shape) that just gave up, out of the blue. And it took my dad a long time to fix it. But now it all works (well, except for one side of the living room) and I'll tell ya, I was never so happy to do laundry in my life.
