Last night I had one of those nights where everything possible that could go wrong in thirty minutes did.
We had some bad thunderstorms last night, so to lose power in my neck of the woods was to be expected. Well, it didn’t happen when the storms came. It didn’t happen when the storm passed. I was excited.
So I finished printing off some things for a open note/book exam for a class the next day, finished my studying for another exam, and I began playing some games.
I started playing League of Legends with a few friends of mine. The storm had been gone for roughly an hour and a half. The NCAA Basketball tournament was over (the storm was at it’s worst during the tournament). Things were looking good.
I hopped into the skype call and we began playing. The game was going well, and all of the sudden…
The power goes out.
Downstairs, where my computer is, has no windows or anything. Just odd office style ceiling lights.
So I’m sitting in complete darkness. I get up, manage to make myself to the door to go upstairs and…
The power comes back on.
I text my friend, tell him what happened and get back into the game as soon as my computer booted back up.
We surrender that game because of that and decide to try one more game of League of Legends.
The power was on for fifteen minutes, so I assumed that nothing was going to happen.
The game begins and everything’s going well again. Awesome!
Flicker. Flicker. Flicker.
Power goes out.
I text my friend, hoping he wouldn’t be overly mad, telling him what happened and that I was done for the night.
I make my way upstairs in the darkness and go into my room.
I can hear the wind gusting outside. A tree must have fell on some power lines.
Okay. It happens.
I start thinking to myself of things to do since I’m not really ready for bed.
Can’t read my Kindle since there is no light. I didn’t feel like lighting a candle and bringing it into my room either. So I gave up on that.
Oh, I know! I’ll get my DS out and play some of Pokemon Black. Great plan.
I pull my DS out of it’s case, and notice that it’s got a red light near the power button. Great.
I start playing, and about three minutes after I began, the DS died.
So no DS fun time.
What do I do now?
Well, be an awesome boyfriend and call your girlfriend of course!
We talk for a bit, and she needs her beauty sleep.
The fates are dooming me to just go to bed.
I tell her goodnight, and look at the Twitter feed on my phone and see a few tweets from a couple of my favorite comic book writers: Matt Fraction and Jonathan Hickman. The tweets are tagged with #Gameofbones.
AKA porn tweets related to Game of Thrones.
Also, in the light of the
I found an article on Kotaku.com that also sheds some light on a similar issue.
Check it out. It’s a fantastic read. Great article.
Electricity is involved in almost everything we do, it’s scary.
