Due to a power outage I'm typing this up at a Starbucks (which is additionally amusing since I don't drink coffee). Isn't it funny how powerless we become when the electricity goes off? It was one thing to put aside my computer, since even charged I didn't have wifi, but then all the other tasks I had planned on doing today were still moot--I couldn't bake that pound cake (I was afraid to open the fridge!) or wash my clothes. Even after a few hours without power, I still find myself trying to turn on the light in closets and bathrooms. Still, I suppose it was a good excuse to play with the dogs (who still haven't learned how to properly fetch) and get a bit farther in that book I've been reading...
