How To Moronically Do Nothing During A Blackout

I don’t know if you heard, but in San Diego, Orange County, some parts of Arizona, and all of Tijuana (Baja California, Mexico) had a major blackout on the 8th, starting at around 3:38.  My mom and I were driving back from Kentucky Fried Chicken (mmmmm, I know) and suddenly all the stoplights turned off.  Thankfully, we were on the road just as the stop lights went off (I heard that people stayed almost hours getting home, since people were stuck trying to take turns crossing a stop light.

Anyway, apparently the electricity went out all over the county, so it was probably serious.  My parents and I just grabbed a zillion candles (provided by moi—perks of being a pyromaniac) and set them all over the house to light as soon as it started getting dark.  With no computer, television, light, working fridge, I acted like a dead woman and laid on the floor of my room and took pictures of everything.  Be thankful I didn’t upload the 50+ macro pictures of my carpet.

Also, can you tell I’m fascinated by my hand?

Oh, and those books in piles?  I organized them.  I  organized them from the dirty piles all over my room.  Those are only half, however, the other half I managed to somehow work up the energy/braveness to place them in boxes and put them in the dark, hot garage.  Oh yeah, it was hot as heck that Thursday night.  The good news, however—I didn’t have school the next day.  Yay for blackouts!

  1. That was sooo much fun. Sitting in a dar, stuffy house with nothing to do. Thank God for audio books though. The candles didn't do any good for reading in the dark.

  2. I absolutely adore your owl rings, the Harry Potter books, and the shoes! I'm so happy to have found your blog as I'm moving to San Diego in a month or two and I'm having such a hard time finding any San Diego bloggers!

  3. I love blackouts! We usually don't have very long ones, only for a few minutes unfortunately. But it sure is cozy.
    You have so much books! I'm quite jealous. I don't even have room for more books.

  7. your blackout story makes me smile, the ones in vancouver are very different. (for one, they're often frigid and creepy) I'll have to remember to make the time pass by taking pictures next time, yours are an inspiration!

  8. As much as it drives me bonkers when our power goes out, sometimes I kind of relish it. It's kind of nice to just sit there without electricity and take in your surroundings.
