Good grief!  
The cable running down from the pole has come adrift, and all of our electrons are rushing past our house. At some point between now and tomorrow afternoon, men with a ladder will come and fix it. The Energy Australia man who just came and confirmed this was a delight and in stark contrast to the phone man. And it's not so bad, we have candles and books to be read! There was even enough hot water left in the tank for both of us to have showers!

But the house is growing cold and it is tiring to read by candlelight, and so I am going to bed. Before midnight. A sizable portion of my flist has been born since the last time I did that without having some deathly illness: I think I was probably about eight.

At least we still have indoor plumbing and antibiotics, I can do without electricity for a while!

Dear Prompt Bunnies,
Just because Brammers says, "pretty electic man" (or some variant thereof) does not mean you require Harry Potter the "I'm here to hook up your new Wizarding Interwebs, Mr Malfoy" pornfic.

Shouldn't you be busy, y'know, catching the electrons?
