Monday Monologue #6

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.

  1. It was thankfully uneventful for my family and my parents (just heavy winds and rain). Usually we lose power at the drop of a hat but not even a flicker this time!

    My mother-in-law (in NY) lost power and had to be picked up by one of her children to ride out the storm. On of my sisters-in-law (in NJ) reported a large tree down in her yard but it didn’t hit the house. So I think all in all we did pretty well!

    • Kazi: Glad that your family is OK. Ours is as well. We complained a lot when lost power for several days during the summer because of a windstorm; but, that was trivial compared to what’s happening in NJ. If/when it happens again, we will not be so aggravated. The only things we lost were food in the refrigerator.
