I will try to remember to do this tahnks for the reminder
Challenge? Please. I've gone without electricity for almost a whole month. One hour will not kill me.
I'm even turning off my computer! I'll feel so naked without it. But it's better than just turning off the lights.
I turned all my light on, opened the refrigerator, turned on the stove, all my electronics were pumping full blast.. etc.
Thanks for the reminder! We turned off all the lights and put the candles on instead. Go Earth Hour!!
I did this last year, so was happy to do it again. But you shoulda seen me. Pathetic, actually. What do I do if my computer isn't glued to my lap?? I lit candles. That took 45 seconds. I looked around the dark room. That took 30 seconds. I petted the cat, 5 seconds. Walked outside to see if my neighbors were also dark, then smoked 1/4 of a cigarette. Ate some peanuts. Tried to read Riki Tiki Tavi by candlelight. Gave up. Petted the cat. Did some breathing exercises, which reminded me to go smoke another 1/4 of a cigarette. Let my mind wander. Not a good idea. Petted the cat. Somehow or another, I made it through, because when I couldn't stand it any longer, I picked up my laptop and it was 9:29. Whew. Can't wait 'til next year!
@ dizzblnd - I just hope I remember. Not really, this is my second year to participate.@ I hear ya. I often have power outages that can last 10-12 hours.@ Mr. Cheeseburger - I'm glad the lights are out especially if you are "feeling naked".@ John J Savo - Ok, I understand.....spoiled sport.@ Fashionista - Yea!!!@ OMyWord - Man, Your hour sounds a lot like mine, except I don't have a cat.
