The Wiring in Here is Shot

Somehow there was a massive miswiring in brain this morning because when I clicked my travel mug* shut I was shocked that the bathroom light didn't turn on.

*Travel mugs are a necessity by the bed Chez Me or some cat (Elvis) will drink it all. Or possibly get his head stuck in the glass and have to be rescued.


  1. Heh. Stuff like that happens to me ALL THE TIME. I usually discover - after being mad that the kettle didn't heat up, even though I KNOW I flushed the toilet - that I was totally sleepwalking. It scares me a little...

  2. or that damned elevator that will NOT move to the floor pushed....oh wait...didn't push anything. just standing here trying to move it by the sheer force of my will.

    Ok, I don't have a specific example, but I know I've done stuff like this.

    I just can't remember because I was asleep at the time.

  4. Isn't it fun being, um, not 20?

  5. Very diplomatic Rich, I like it. I am so very not 20 that I'm almost two times it.

    You know, I've walked into places and forgotten why I'm there, I've been halfway through something (like showering) and realized I'm doing it entirely wrong but this was a first for me with the completely deliberate action and fully unrelated consequence. It is highly disorienting which is, I suppose, as it should be.

    I was at one computer at work and I highlighted some text and hit the command keys to copy it to the clipboard.

    Then I walked into another room, sat down at another computer, and hit the command keys for pasting, and couldn't understand why the text I had just copied in the other room did not paste!
