I started a few hours ago writing a wondrous post about how the Toddler has successfully installed her Nagometer and has become an expert at using it, but then this Very Important Thing started (AKA the Steelers/Browns game), so the writing came to a great pause as I found my Booty Groove on the couch and stared at the big glowy thing in the living room.
Then the unthinkable happened: the power began to flicker. It seems that Ike is a Browns fan and he's bitter about those last few games. He is taking it out on us by sending us entirely too much wind, tossing some rain into the mix, and finally he managed to knock out our power for good. As I tried to convince the Toddler that she should stay in bed and keep on sleeping, despite the complete darkness and lack of lullaby music, I took a glance out her window. We live atop a very high hill and can see all of Pittsburgh from her room, and I'm thinking there aren't many people WITH power. In fact, the nearest lights appear to be well over four miles away.
Alas, I will not be driving to a location that DOES have power because it is certain to be too far. That means I am without Internet access, so I write this little update not knowing when it will actually post.
And I do it just to annoy those who hate that I post daily. Heh.
Oh, and Ike? BITE ME. Go Steelers!
