vice, happy

By all accounts you really should have died...

It's a little unfortunate that I'll be missing Melbourne Victory's last home game of the season (especially since it's almost certainly the last game they'll be playing in Melbourne until the Champion's League match in March, as they have the proverbial two chances of making the finals), but...

I'm going to see Andrew Bird tonight!

It's times like these I wish I had a UPS

Yesterday Melbournians1 used a record amount of power in a single day2 (can't think why) and the system seems to be feeling the effects today, as the power just went off here for about a second.

The state government yesterday sent out a plea for us to use our air conditioning "sparingly", the response to which was a hearty "fuck you, you're lucky if I don't go out and buy a second A/C unit right now" from pretty much all of us. Still, it's not too bad at the moment, and I'm hoping I can last through to the cool change without resorting to anything more than my fan.

1. I don't give a fuck what anyone else says on the matter, "Melburnians" is just plain wrong. End of story. Big nods to my man melbournian.

2. 9100 Megawatts, for the scientifically minded. In layman's terms: fuckloads.
