who turned out the lights  
In an entirely too Los-Angeles-Typical type apocalypse our power has been out since 11:30 pm two nights ago. Trees down in the neighborhood and snapped power lines because of a windstorm here that is supposed to be over with tonightish. I miss electricity. I am on campus now, debating on if I should stay where there are lights and internet, or go back home and enjoy candlelight. (Which, btw, is only really fun for the first night, IMHO).

Hang out online, I say! If you are on AIM or Skype, I have the same handle. We could chat. :)

No worries. Offer stands. I am usually online in the evenings after the kids go to bed. :)

Well, then.


Time to eat the neighbors.

you know what's kind of amusing? this is not the first suggestion of cannibalism that has been mae to me since this predicament started.

I was gonna say, "Only vertigo," but now I'm scared there's a ground-swell of cannibalism in the country! I know zombies are totes trendy right now, so let's cross our fingers that the hipsters and young'uns don't decide to give it an ironic try.

"Mmm, human! Tastes like chicken! LOL!"

be AFRAID, because zombies are way scarier than vampries! lolz. one of my best friends here, NO JOKE, has a machete in her garage for just in case of a zombie apocalypse.

Ironically (or not?), aneas and I were discussing apocalyptic diet plans earlier this week. Since long-term cannibalism is problematic (what, like dating isn't hard enough) we've concluded that the only things to save us will be chillies and bees, as the former can be dried to last years and the latter is the ultimate superfood.

...then again, we also once spent a week discussing whether a shark or a squid is better equipped to hold the power of attorney so, um, I'm going to go away now.

i have to know, were you considering *giant* shark & *giant* squid when you were making those determinations? because, um, i think that they're important factors!!

(also, bees are superfood? did not know that!)

We were not, but we clearly should've. Though, in honor of the tradition, of my more drunken ancestors, I've decided to settle my legal debates by the honorable method of having my enemies attacked by bears. It's just good sense, that is.

(Honey doesn't spoil and is hyper-healthy, not to mention that its super antioxidant properties will be darn useful when combating the infectious plague of the undead hordes.)

Oh noes! Is it back on now? (Also yeah, totes choosing internet over candlelight)
my monkied brainkatekat1010 on December 8th, 2011 01:15 am (UTC)
it's totally back, thank goodness, but yes, TOTALLY choosing internet over candlelight!

A wise decision, Kate the Kat. Very wise indeed!
