And just as I update you all with my busy, busy life, it all comes to a complete stop, thanks to a bout of food poisoning. This wouldn’t normally be a big deal, as I AM trying to lose weight except:
- Thanks to construction on the building, there’s no power in my apartment right now, and it’ll be Monday before the power is back.
- Meaning it’s pitch-black in there, and I have no candles, batteries for flashlights, etc, and it’s a long way till payday
- The toilet is blocked. Parse that: I have food poisoning and the toilet is blocked.
- My plunger moved to the West Side when the neighbor I’d loaned it to moved away.
So, typical for me. I finally get a computer that works like lightning AND a wind stick so I can work at home, and the power goes out so I can only work for an hour off the battery AND I get brutally sick so I can’t go work in cafes.
Typical. See the well-known sociological principle of the Law of Conservation of Catastrophe.
