Time Event
Just Missed Me
On my way home from tonight's BASFA meeting, I turned off I-880 onto Thornton Avenue and noticed that while traffic lights were working, street lights were not. Soon it became obvious that there was a medium-sized power failure in progress. As I got closer to Fremont Blvd., traffic lights were out as well. I steeled myself for stumbling into my apartment in the dark. However, while the traffic light on the corner before my condo complex was out, the lights were on at my complex itself, and in the apartment.

This is of course yet another warning to me that I should get a UPS, particularly because there is computer equipment here that needs to stay turned on all the time and I'm going to be away for a month in August-September.

Current Mood: relieved
RIP Kwik E Mart
As you all probably know, 7-Eleven remade some of their stores as Kwik-E-Marts to promote the Simpsons movie. The one in Mountain View gets dismantled and turned back into an ordinary store tomorrow, but during the height of the madness I went over there one afternoon and took pictures of the place>

Kwik E MadnessCollapse )

On the afternoon I went there, the line stretched out the front of the store, as pictured, so I did not go inside. Fortunately, dave_gallaher and dinogrl took me over there after a BASFA meeting a few weeks ago, and it was slightly less frantic at 10 PM than mid-afternoon on a weekend, so we could get inside and look around and get our pictures taken with the characters.

Current Mood: amused
