Power's Out

An underground crew working across the street hit the power line. Our backup power goes down in about a half hour...productivity was down big time due to the Holiday Spirit anyways. Going, going...

Shit, I can never use that excuse for my work... laptop, generator and sprint broadband kind of makes power outages (and even land line outages) irrelevant, unfortunately.

Milk it for what you can

Everyone Exaggerates

We're being taken for a ride... agaaaaaaain.....

The power here at work only goes out during sunny, 65 degree days in the middle of the afternoon

Try taking a shit in the dark before you leave. It's quite peaceful and relaxing.

Yup! although I am more than likely not going to Sammy's. Not a big fan of that place... too many cheesy guys with even cheesier pick up lines in one place.
