slacking, questioning, ellipses

I have a new officemate... he is not the new Rentals Manager... my approach to running rentals can best be described as being similar to Slovenia holding the EU presidency... it supposed to snow tonight... i'll believe it when I see it... the landlord has supposedly fixed the bathtub... why does a lightbulb burning out throw the circuit breaker every time??? the TANBI clan is in my thoughts and prayers... did I get enough stuff for my Xmas basket family??? what is the point of seeing the psychiatrist or therapist every week??? why is it so hard to get everything on the truck the first time??? I should go to the grocery store... on-site sheets amuse me, they probably shouldn't... there are spindle kits at Piddleloop, go buy them for your fiber-addicted friends (but not me, I made them)... why isn't there a subscription to The Economist on offer from Chicago Public Radio this year for a donation??? how does a doctor run out of prescription pads??? why is the health care delivery system in Chicago so backwards compared to Minneapolis??? at least Pittsburgh has Walgreens now... I totally failed at NaBloPoMo... Lacey bought a car... What color is it??? the new Rose Brand snowflakes are awesome, I don't care if no one believes me that they will survive being on the truck... feel free to answer the questions I have... my freezer should regenerate the cookies after I eat them...

I'm with you.

A lightbulb burning out shouldn't flip a circuit breaker. More likely you're getting a surge which manages to blow the lightbulb before the circuit breaker reacts. There's probably something wrong with your wiring... and make sure your computer is on a really good surge suppressor!!!! (That's grounded... they don't work if they're not grounded.)

I'm with noricum (who sent me yarn I can finally use now that Nanowrimo is over) I think it is probably not the bulb flipping the circut, but vice versa. It could just be that that circuit is off though, so I would just make sure you're not plugging anything important into that circuit without protection.

The doctor runs out of prescription pads because he or she rarely does the ordering and despite all their scientific training doctors still believe in poorly paid and infinitely patient fairies who keep track of this stuff for them and either do it for them or nag and remind them to order them until they do. These fairies rarely exist.
