So I've heard rumor of rain in Moscow.  Can anyone confirm this?

Speaking of rain, I was going to post something last night, but we had a thunderstorm that knocked out all the electricity for an hour or so.  It was around 10:30pm and we were at Grandma's when it happened.  She lit two kerosene lamps.  I don't think I had ever seen a working kerosene lamp before.  It was like being on Little House on the Prairie!
We lit a bunch of candles at home, and realized that everything we were incapable of doing anything we would normally be doing (watching TV, being on the internet, anything requiring running water or pluming, listening to Odysseys...).  So what else was there to do in a thunderstorm with no electricity at 11pm, but to eat ice cream? 

Speaking of ice cream (or celebrations calling for ice cream), today is Grandma Norma and Grandpa Jim's 54th wedding anniversary.  Congratulations!  As I write this, she is telling him to put on socks, and drilling holes in the wall to install a rail so it's easier to walk.  Now that's love.  

Speaking of love, I love my new hair!  I'm remembering all the things I loved about having short hair before.  Being able to wash it in the sink is tops.  Taking half the time to get ready is a close second.  Third is probably looking more my age (aka not 17), although a lot of people say I look more like my mom now.  AND after someone on facebook pointed it out, I realized that pretty much everyone is getting the same hair cut!  So much for originality.  Oh well, my head still feels light and free in the summer heat.

(PS "Electrici-hy" should be said in your best Billy Elliot accent)
