The power has been out since 7:40 this evening. It's hot as hell. I'm on the awkward flaptop which has never before been connected to teh Interwebs. The keyboard is black, and I'm trying to type by the light of the screen. I will be blind in about five minutes. The battery isn't likely to last very long, anyway. I'm going outside, where the air is slightly less stiffling. Screw spellchecking. Must get backup power supply for desktop! When the power goes out in this town, it's likely to be out for ages. I don't know when I'll be back. I may just die of the heat. Feh.
