Here I have a new taggie made with my two FTU scrap kits below: "Cornucopia" and "Bygone Era" :) Artwork is by Barbara Jensen and mask is by Niks Nik Naks. Hope you try this one out. :)
If you would like to hear a story...
Even though I am here again, giving you some more creations of mine :) - this has been a pretty crazy week. I've been in school for 3 days now, finding all my new classes... getting use to the rush of things in the ol' routine again but at 3:38 pm yesterday, Southern California was left without electricity. I had finally realized that all the lights had went out when I flipped the light switch out in the hallway. Shortly afterwards, I noticed that all the heat lamps for my beardies (read more about my lizards HERE) had turned off. :O At this point, I'm wondering if it's just my home or that everyone else in the neighborhood has lost power as well. I look out the window and see people already walking outside. So I find myself in a complete sticky situation. My phone line is down so I can't even call the power company or anyone else for that matter, the weather was in the 90s so my home was heating up like an oven, and my beardies are left without their lights.
As expected, people started leaving into town while I heard someone say: "... it's good that we have water," And yes, it was. I found myself spraying my face and hair with cold water because it was so hot!!! And there was no way to get around it... no TV, no Internet, nothing. I was completely cut off from the world and stuck inside my house. I even found Zac (my baby bearded dragon) looking up at me as if to say: "Hey, where did all the light go? Someone stole it!" while Basil (my older lizard) started drifting off to sleep, thinking it was night... and soon it was. All the sunlight from outside started fading away and my house was becoming invaded with darkness. I was completely caught off guard... I had only 1 candle and a few flashlights. And even though it was now night, it was still very warm. (At least that might have benefited my lizards :)) I had to travel around with a mini lantern in order to see (I got a vivid flash back from that movie "Insidious" I gotta say... It was great timing considering how dark it was *nervous laugh*) but eventually all I could do was lay down and wait it out until the lights came back on.
In this predicament, I had school tomorrow and I couldn't even work on my assignment that was due the next day because I had no Internet plus my laptop won't turn on unless it's plugged in. All I could hope for was that school would be canceled because of the power outage. Around 8 O' clock, I turned in until I finally fell to sleep. I woke up a few hours later to hear on the radio that school would be canceled. At least I wouldn't have to worry about that assignment. :) Soon after hearing that, I went back to sleep and when I woke up, the lights were back on. Turns out, possibly one person in Arizona was the cause of the whole thing - so I've heard on the Internet. Article HERE So here I am, posting this now on my 3 day weekend since I had a little extra time. :) Hope you found this story entertaining and have a great weekend... Lina <3
