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.
