An interior monologue from me (and sometimes the wife).
- I have an insurmountable lead in our office football pool even though the Monday night game hasn’t yet been played. I didn’t do it today; but it’s always fun to collect my winnings early.
- The battery in our home alarm wouldn’t hold a charge which wouldn’t be a big deal; except 1) the alarm chirps periodically when the battery runs low; and 2) it was in the middle of the night. Not easy to sleep through. As you might imagine, I was at the battery store first thing in the morning.
- I think all of the multi-day power failures that we’ve had killed it. This was the second one that died and it definitely didn’t last nearly as long as the first one. I wish I could bill our worthless utility company that takes days to fix any widespread outage.
- And speaking of power outages, if you’re in the east (and I know several of regular readers are), we’ll be thinking of you and hope that Sandy is “uneventful” for you. We only expect to get remnants of the storm around here.
