Unplanned 1 Week Vacation...

Oops, sorry. I guess I took an unplanned week off from LJ and everything else. What have I been doing?? Well, most cleaning my apartment and jamming on Rune Scape. I leveled my Rune Crafting in Runescape and so far that is about it.

It is the end of the year and those who have been faithfully reading my Journal are aware what happens at the end of the year...大掃除 (Osouji, or "Big Cleaning"). I have been working on that and hence the "week off." But, I m slowly trickling back to my daily routine. I have less than a week to finish Osouji and prepare for the New Year. Not too sure what I am going to do on New Year's day, but I will cross that bridge when I get to it.

And in other news... The island of Oahu had a 14 hour blackout which started last night 7:30 PM HST. I was, of course, on the computer (courtesy of being an internet junkie) and long and behold, as I was enjoying gaming, the lights flickered and before you knew it, darkness had prevailed over my apartment. Fun. What did I do? The only sensible thing, I called my other friend and we did a mini-blackout road trip. Word of advise bloggers, never try to make left turns during a blackout. It was very difficult to do, as people do not know how to drive in a blackout. But it was an experience that I enjoyed (yea, I'm insane like that). Luckily I have a back laptop battery (currently running on it at starbucks). I had to come to town because I woke up with still no electricity. I was able to recharge my cell phone with my laptop's battery (smart or what?), and I was not "net"-less as I do have internet on my phone (see, internet junkie). So, I can survive a blackout... kudos for me.

I shall be offline today, though, celebrating a friend's birthday and recharging what I can outside of my own home (brought all my cords with me). Bad news is, I will have to go shopping for food tomorrow as pratically everything in my fridge is now... shot. Wah!

More later. Welcome back, and thanks for my unplanned vacation! Woot woot.

Noob! You should've bought one of those cheap ice chests (if you don't have one) bought a bag of ice and thrown your food in there =P

Only reason I know about the black out is that Obama is in Hawaii and it was on the news lol

considering that we were our of electricity for 12 hours, I don't think the "ice chest" would have done anything for me. Anyway, I didn't lose much food, so Nyah nyah! =p

I saw the blackout on the news, it was pretty crazy!

Yep, people don't know how to drive in a blackout o_o The only thing I was taught was that when stoplight intersections go out, it will now follow the same rules as a four way stop (yield to the right I guess?)
