Kero asleep

In the Immortal Words of Captain Caveman...

"Bad time for power failure."

Fortunately, I was out of my shower (just) when the power went out this morning. I suppose it says something terribly shallow about me that I know pieces of my wardrobe well enough to find them by feel in the dark, but with no Jeeves of my own I have to do the best I can.

The power was out in a several-block radius, including at least one major traffic light, so I presume that VA Power knows about the situation and is working to correct it. At least I hope so ... I would prefer not to come home tonight to a 99-degree apartment and see various once-frozen liquids oozing out of the refrigerator.

It's purely luck that we were awake this morning when it went; we got up early so I could get in early because my job is still being a rat-bastard. Otherwise, it's entirely possible I could have woken up at 9:00, wondering why I was so warm and not realizing that I was already an hour late.

*sigh* If only...

Why Must Gaming Always Suffer?

Of all the many things I try to squish into my overpacked schedule, gaming is the one I actually miss the most when it falls out. Unfortunately, it also tends to be the one that falls out the most. Gaming got called this past weekend, which was okay because I was wanting a little more prep time anyway. But looking at the chances for gaming in the next several weeks, I find...

July 30th -- I'm currently slated to run Star Wars, but the way this week's been going, I'll be amazed if it actually happens.

August 6th -- laurie_robey and I are not available due to travel.

August 13th -- Next likely chance. Half a month away. -.- What do you want to bet that'll be the weekend my parents are moving?

I keep trying to arrange a schedule of "3 weekends of gaming a month with 1 weekend off." What I keep ending up with is "1 weekend of gaming a month with 3 weekends off."

Grrr. I hate being an adult sometimes.

Man, the pageboy haircut would be so worth it if the rest of the package came along with it.

*ahem* Sorry. The point of this post is actually to announce that I do in fact have electricity again, so there will be a Suburban Jungle strip tomorrow. Huzzah!
