So one hour later, this is what I have learned…

-No amount of whining and crying will get Yoshi to go down in the cold creepy dark basement when I am the one who blew the fuse.

-There is nothing but water heaters, furnaces, and spiderwebs in the cold creepy dark basement.

-When you live in an old building, there is no such thing as “circuit breakers.”

-The fuse box is actually inside the apartment. There was no need for anyone to go into said cold creepy dark basement.

-The fuse box is located about six feet off the ground. Behind the dryer.

-There are six fuse thingies in the box. The “on/off” switch on the outside of the fuse box apparently does nothing.

-None of the six fuse thingies are labeled. If you unscrew things, other things will turn off in other rooms. Like lights, computers, and other electronical stuff.

-The only way you can tell what controls what is to turn everything on, stand on a ladder to reach the fuse box and start unscrewing fuses and have someone else stand in other parts of the house to tell you what you just turned off.

-Labelmakers rule. Identifying and labelling the fuses for the future is a good thing.

-Messing with the fuses in the house may have accidentally f-ed up the garage door opener. The last time we checked, the door wouldn’t close via the electronic door opener and we had to close it manually. And Yoshi had to gank it shut by jamming something into the door so our garage wouldn’t be open all night. Oh and the light won’t turn off in there, either.

-There is one mystery fuse in our fuse box. We don’t know what the hell it controls. My theory is that it opens/closes Pandora’s Box. I’m not sure about that, though.

-Waiting for Yoshi to get home and not asking for the neighbors for help before it gets too late to ring their doorbell and ask for help was not a good choice of action.

-No matter how dumb the jozjozjoz is for trying to use the microwave and the toaster oven at the same time (even though at some level the jozjozjoz knew not to do this), the Yoshi will not call jozjozjoz retarded. Although the Yoshi did call the SITUATION retarded.

Tee and JeniJeniJeni do take our household distress calls late at night. Thanks! (Don’t worry, we didn’t electrocute ourselves!)

-jozjozjoz is responsible for calling the landlord and asking for help tomorrow.

Doh. I think I blew a fuse.

I started the microwave and the toaster oven at the same time and left the room. (I think I knew that I wasn’t supposed to do that.)

Now half the house has no power (kitchen, the den, half the living room). So that means the fridge isn’t working either. Or the TV/TiVo in the den.

Ooops.

And it’s dark and I would have to go down in the cold creepy dark basement to go flip the switch.

OR I can wait for Yoshi to get home and whine and cry so I don’t have to do it.

Guess which route I’m gonna take?

Oh well. At least my bowl of matzo ball soup got heated up before the power went kaput.

UPDATE @ 10:21p: Ok, so Yoshi is home and is not happy about the situation.

I really wish I could push some sort of “pause” button on the rest of the world & get some time to sleep & relax & catch up on random stuff…

Yeah.

That would be nice.
