Work was interrupted yesterday late in my shift by one of those crazy “Wrath of the Gods” kind of severe thundershowers that ended up knocking down a tree that smashed a power transformer to sparking bits right down the street from the restaurant. You know, the sort of damage you usually see in all those disaster movies right before the heroine gets swept away by some terrible raging torrent. Or blown away to Oz….
Your Favorite Catgirl was spared any of that, but we did have to close up early…. no power at all. I ended up stuck at work in the dark too for about an hour until the storm passed and the live wires and debris were cleared away. Half our town was without lights and there were bits of stuff down everywhere….. Mother Nature can real have some serious PMS at times…..
However, there is an upside…. I’m off work today while a brand spanking new pole and transformer get installed. Nice after the busy time I had last week. I had power at the apartment last evening, but no cable TV, so it actually forced me to watch a couple of movies….. the Korean Suspense film “Black House” and the Thai Ghost/ Cop movie “Soul’s Code”… and that means a review…maybe even two…today.
Who knows? I’m in a particularly goofy mood this morning……(Watch out!!)
