The power went out in the middle of the night last night. I didn't know this until I heard Bria saying my name this morning. I was mentally alert but still physicall tired. "What?" I asked.
She told me that the power had gone off in the middle of the night, so our alarms might not go off. I looked at my clock. It was blinking at 1:27am. I asked her what time it was. Seven thirty. Not bad; that's what time I was planning on getting up anyway. So I got out of bed and started to get ready for the day. At eight I was at my computer writing away. I squeezed in 1100 words in half an hour. Go me. (I actually squeezed in 928 words in a fifteen-minute word war last night. Go me even more.)
I went to breakfast at 8:45 after reading my friends list in fifteen minutes, where I ate breakfast and talked to Fazila, Sarah, and the other Sujin. After fighting the cold (I knew I should have listened to Forecastfox), I ran back to my room to print out my proposal for the astronomy paper and grab a bigger jacket before running to the observatory. On the way up the hill, though, I saw people from the class walking down the hill. "Canceled," they told me. We had been locked out of the observatory because of the power outage.
So I decided to take advantage of this. No, not by working on my French test. By the massages at today's Sophomorning. I figured that if I was going to be in a chair much more often than usual this month, I may as well be relaxed for at least a few minutes while I was at it. But yes, it was most excellent.
Also, I think (I hope!) I have LJTalk back working again, so maybe I'll get to abuse its posting via IM. We'll put Frank to good use.
