day 8 in the dark [Dec. 21st, 2006|11:25 am]
Just me.
[Tags|, , ]

Still no power as of 4pm wednesday. If you combine the 3 days without power from Hurricane Andrew in Baton Rouge when I was in grad school and my parents 5 days without power (they are in Baton Rouge, not New Orleans) during Hurricane Katrina, the score is tied. I know City Light is working round the clock blah blah blah but it's still irritating that it takes this long.

I would really, really like for it to be back on by the time Lori arrives (from Northern California) at my house on Friday night. Or Santa can bring me coal to burn in the fireplace.

My power went out sometime last night, but was repaired sometime this morning.

Maybe that institutional racism theory is backwards, and they repair the areas they don't trust first so they can keep an eye on them. Shoulda stayed in Tacoma!

Someone must have paid your bill in the middle of the night.

dude?

if by "dude" you mean "my boyfriend" and by "couch" you mean "soft cushy bed that I've been sharing with him for the last 7 nights, then yes. Remember my coffee date after dim sum? yeah, that guy. whee!

as for the second paragraph of yr msg, I can't figure it. are there job opportunities at KCLS? probably. am I on the list? yes. are any of those ops for me? bet not. So I'm still in the 'coma.

Probably isn't all that different from Heartwood.

Give her a hug for me.

Re: Lori

have you been there yet? I went in september 06. it's nice, but......not so Lori.

I promise to give her a hug from you and feed her an excessive amount of sugar, caffeine, alcohol and meat.
