there was a blackout last night. it was only after it happened did i remember getting an automated phone call from nstar last week warning me about the possible outage. instead of watching television i read in bed with the aid of an LED headlamp, as the house grew increasingly colder since the furnace wouldn't work without electricity. the power did come back on an hour later. i tried to watch some tv but the digital signal was still down so i went to bed instead.
with the overcast sky and the wind and the light rain, it was a good day to stay indoors. i was preoccupied with 3 activities: reading ("the light of other days"), scripting (learning about actionscript motions), and gaming (okami). also, testing the limits of my lactose intolerance. i really need to get some lactaid.
