There's a place for people who laugh at nothing...

Last night, I was in my office, Mary was on her way back from the bathroom, and suddenly she's yelling that she smells fire. So, naturally, I come out, and there is a very strong electrical smell. So, I'm pulling all of the plugs on things in my office, I start feeling the walls, Mary calls the fire department...

Turns out the TV burned out. So, I have a new one on order from Best Buy and Mary can watch the TV in my office, which works just fine.

It's a gorgeous day, maybe a little cool. I'm getting out of here for a while. Ciao.

thank goodness it wasn't a real fire.

oddly, around 8 or 9 last night, I went out to the kitchen to make popcorn and noticed pretty flashing lights. There was a firetruck, cop car and ambulance all sitting outside. Someone in the building must have called 9-11. Weird coincidence, eh?

That is an odd sort of synchronicity, isn't it?

It is good that there wasn't a real fire. I'm not sure I would have known how to deal with trying to get the cats into the basement, and Mary would have been pretty well beside herself.

Gadzooks, man! I'm glad it turned out okay, except the part about having to buy a new tv.

Hey, buying a new TV was actually a lot of fun. I've never bought anything quite that big over the Internet.
