I finish my samples, light candles, and prepare for an electronic-free evening. I go out and buy ice cream and cottage cheese as a faith-offering to Indianapolis Power and Light. I do yoga for the first time in years. I get an art idea from the light fixture as a lie in the corpse pose with my glasses off. Life is good.
A few hours later I try to eat more ice cream. It's starting to melt. I decide to paint some doodles by blacklight.
I drink wine and go to bed. No power until noon the next day. I plug in my powerstrip and push start the computer. Crackle, crackle, pop, shit! The computer is fried.
The power goes back out an hour later and I start to get annoyed. (It's on now).
Will know in 3-5 business days if computer is deep-fried or just lightly sauteed. Being without power and without my computer should not be this disrupting.
