Since I missed yesterday again, you guys get a special long one today.
The power went down since 5pm yesterday, right when I was taking a nap. I can recall the exact second and the exact details. I was lying on my bed. First was the lights, then I heard both damionís and my computer power down. Then my fridge went out. Then the panicking screams outside my room: WHAT THE HELL HAPPENED?!?!?!? I turned around to look @ my clock to check the time and guess what, that went out too.
Letís backtrack, I had 2hrs of sleep the nite before and got up @ 7:30 for my 8am class. Went to jamba juice for our biweekly* lunch get-together with acuneo. Got myself a cherry charger, it was pretty good, but $4.25 was a bit expensive.
1 : occurring twice a week <- I mean this *
2 : occurring every two weeks (www.m-w.com)
After coming back home, I decided to take a nap and when it reached 12:30, I decided to ditch the remainder of my classes. Returning back to where I left off, the power went down and people were panicking everywhere. People were returning because their classes were canceled. Basically, the whole UC + dorms lost electricity due to some main power failure. Our DC had to close down because many machines in there run off electricity. So liam and I met up with carolís suite and ate Japanese last nite. Really good stuff, however serviced sucked. We were constantly being ignored due to our obnoxiousness and our young age.
Came back after dinner and found out we just got assigned more physics homework due tomorrow. Those stupid communists >:o(. Had to do the hw in the tv lounge where they brought in trucks with natural gas power generators lighting up the whole room. Poor martin. He had to stay till 1:30am last nite since heís senior clerk of the foothill frontdesk. Poor dude didnít eat anything till I brought him a slice of pizza @ ~11pm.
So most of my suite went off to a jazz club and acuneo and I decided to goto metreon to watch a movie since I got 4 free tickets. After entering the bart station and missing the first train, we called moviefone and realized that there wasnít anything playing anymore. This was @ 11:30pm. Sigh, so we walked back, but I found out staying @ a dorm was worse cause there was N..O..T..H..I..N..G to do! Acueno went to bed and I sat on the couch playing with my flashlight as if it was a sword. Sorta brings back childhood memories (~drools~). Those were the days, when I #1 samurai, #1 ninja, #1 mob king, #1 fighter, hehe. I went back into my room and tried to read my popular science magazine. Lemme tell you, flashlight and reading donít mix unless youíre in a movie and your parents just told u to goto bed. So I went to sleep @ ~12am (one of the earliest times I can remember).
Woke up the this morning @ 10am to the sound of my alarm on my cellfone which Iíve never heard before and actually got me excited. Morning went by with nothing much happening, then @ 2:44pm, I heard 3 beeps and I began screaming (is that the correct word?) in joy. Everyone was rejoicing with the power back on. This experience was one of the weirdest however also enlightening. Basically I learn I cannot live without electricity. -_^x
