small girl in big world [_extraflamey_]

(no subject)

The fact that i didn't touch a computer before going to bed last night is an indication of how dead i was. There will be updates and such forthcoming, however. Fear not, ye who adore the minutia of my life. Also possibly fic recs and book reviews. Y'all should leave me your phone numbers. Don't forget to attach your name, though, as i'm not psychic.

*dives into comments and flist*
crazy [lavellebelle]

I can feel the cool air coming through my window.

Oh my brilliant father. Turned off the computer's surge protector 'cause a storm's coming. Except, um, the Internet gets routed through a thingy that's plugged into that. [I told Meredith, whom i had been IMing with, to explain my disappearance, and she said, "isn't a storm exactly when you want the surge protector on? or am I just very confused?" I grinned. My father, of course operates on the, "Let's turn off everything so there's no chance any power will come through" principle.]

At least when i came out to the living room and said, "Why is the Internet dead?" he knew why.


Edit: So, i heard Jeopardy and came out. 'Twas Kids Jeopardy or something and the questions i saw in the Double Jeopardy round were easy like whoa, save a few of the Civil War questions. Though the kids were like 5th graders, which made it make more sense. Final Jeopardy category was: Biblical Weights and Measures. WTF?
"As described in the Bible, the total volume of this is 450,000 cubic cubits."
If it wasn't for the fact that, joking during the break, i had mentioned what turned out to be the answer, i probably would have blanked on that had i been given it as a question.


Also: 90 minute So You Think You Can Dance followed by Malcolm in the Middle at a special night and time = no The Inside tonight. Boo.


And: I went to change the speed dial on my cell, and when i changed one speed dial number to a pre-existing speed dial number it asked if wanted to replace the pre-existing one, and it deleted that whole pre-existing entry. Boo. Also, only 0-9 actually function as speed dial, even though it forces a "speed number" onto every single entry. wtf.
