Ponita in Real Life said...

Well, *that* looks like a pain in the ass! Hope they are done soon.

Whirlochre said...

Sounds like now would be a good time to think about thawing out that mammoth in the cellar...

BEAST said...

Have you been illegelally tapping into your neighbours power AGAIN
tsk tsk

Emerson Marks said...

Hard lines, captain.

Geoff said...

Serves you right for getting your electricity from the Royal Mail.

Autolycus said...

Pause for pondering exactly what you might have been doing to cause the mains supply to fail....

The Unbearable Banishment said...

What? The sign said they apologize. And it's essential. I'm sure they feel quite awful about it.

mago said...

ZZZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzAPPPP ....

Is that Murphy of Murphy's Law?

xl said...

Hope your Smeg is OK!

Oh Hai Ponita!

Dave said...

Most essential appliances are battery operated, are they not?

mapstew said...

Ah Murphy, thought he passed on years ago! He'll be on the tea-break now.

Comment of the day to GEOFF.

Kate Lord Brown said...

Sounds painful. Shall we all give Mr Murphy a ring and tell him to extract his dirty cable from Miss Scarlet's box immediately?

B-u-x said...

Oh dear, I assume this means you are blowing cold today then?!

MJ said...

I thought you had a drawer full of powered-up, fully charged batteries on your night table for ... emergencies.

Wow, that was awkward said...

Looks like nothing a little duct tape couldn't fix.

BEAST said...

Finally Miss Scarlet has been arrested for fiddling her Leccy Meter
Its shocking(GEDDDDDITTTTT!!!!??!!!!)

I should be on the stage
****tapes up splitting sides***

Ava said...

I'm envisioning a team of tireless hamsters running on wheels powering your computer right now. It was thoughtful of them to face the apology sign right into your window, however. It's almost like they mean it.
Sending you some opium to get through this weary day.

Chairman Bill said...

Let me guess - they asked if they could plug their road drill into a convenient socket?

Scarlet-Blue said...

I am back... until???

Ponita: It is a pain, and they are digging up the lane [which is closed for the week!]

Mr Whirly: I have a mammoth something...

Mr Beastie: Well, you've got to get it where you can.

Mr Marks: Indeed!

Geoff: Foolish of me, I know.

Mr Auty: I am becomming infamous for blowing fuses.

Mr Banish: Hello and Welcome! It's quite surreal looking at that sign through my kitchen window.

Mr Mags: My life is blessed/cursed by Murphy's Law...

Mr XL: I gave the Smeg a good licking. He seems fine. Thank you for remembering him.

Dave: I have no comment, Dave. I don't know to what you can be referring.

Mr Maps: Agreed! And yes, Murphy does seem to spend an awful lot of time scratching his head and looking down holes. Oh... and drinking tea.

Kate: Goodness me! I should be so lucky...!

Bux: I have a nervous twitch. And my sense of humour has been stretched to places it shouldn't really be stretched to.

MJ: I do. But the extra shot of electricity adds to the frisson.

Mr Awkward: Duct tape and a jet of water... it will be fine.

Ava: Elf and safety! I think the drugs might work, at least they may help calm down my nervous twitch! Much gratitude.

Mr Chairman: Frankly nothing would surprise me...!

Eryl Shields said...

Oh dear, I hope you have wellies and a rubber frock to protect you, X

Gorilla Bananas said...

I hope everyone notices that Miss Scarlet is too much of a lady to say "fuck".

CyberPete said...

Must be a pain. Not only is the electricity thing annoying but Royal Mail aren't able to deliver your mail.

Scarlet-Blue said...

Eryl: Do you think my wet suit would work? It has fringing.

Mr Bananas: You have set off my nervous twitch... because I think this word has passed my lips over the last few days... I am a smidge stressed! You are lovely in thinking that I am lovely!

Sx

Scarlet-Blue said...

Pete: I cheat. I have a little postbox attached to an outside wall. My dog used to eat the mail... dread to think what he would have done with the electricty cable?!

KAZ said...

I can't afford cable :)

Scarlet-Blue said...

Kaz: I can't afford electricity...

Kevin Musgrove said...

The second picture looks like you've been over-enthusiastically following Ms. Cake's appliance reviews.

When the dust has settled down eventually you must tell us the process of negotiation involved in procuring this outcome.

Scarlet-Blue said...

Kev: I can feel the currents flowing through me. If I had any wherewithal I would google 'electricity' and come up with a witty reposte. But I am powerless... cut off...

Moot the Hoopla said...

If you lived in Albania everybody would think that you have E-mail..
la-di-da.

Kevin Musgrove said...

If you get the power back on in the wee small hours there'll be a midnight snack waiting for you.

Scarlet-Blue said...

Mr Moot Coppens: You are looking magjik, Z. Coppens. Por ju jeni duke kërkuar edhe pse tuaj si kreu i ka shumë të energjisë elektrike në vazhdim e sipër!

Kev: I am about to collapse... but I will enjoy a midnight snack for breakfast ;o)

Madame DeFarge said...

Are you having to make the handsome and mustachioed workmen endless cups of tea and give them hobnobs as they fiddle with your supply?

ChrisV82 said...

I hate to ask where they parked the truck.

Moot the Hoopla said...

KazzA!!
Oh piffle, who needs elektrike to energjisë në vazhdim..
which I am sure is quite sipër!

Juaj shqiptar..mprehtë!!

btw:
I used the Klingon Translator it's suprisingly similar. :)

Gadjo Dilo said...

You could also run a pipe from the gas mains through your letter box and hang an official-looking "Warning: Gas" notice on it and nobody would think you were doing anything illegal! (Seriously, hope you get reconnected soon.)

Son of Incogneato said...

Is that really ’your’ door, Scarlet? That’s quite risqué of you to show us your very own personal door. You know what they say; doors are the eyeways to the soul. Of course it could be a stage prop, right?
I also like the little danger note. I’d swipe it if I were you - for possible future use. You could make a neat little badge out of it and wear it when you go out on Saturday nights.

Scarlet-Blue said...

Madame D: My supply is back! Actually EDF men are rather nice... especially the ones they send out late at night... well I presume he was an EDF man?

Chris: In my overgrown bush...?

Mr Z.Moot Coppens: Mes žaisti odgadnąć kalbą?

Gadj: I am reconnected... I was on a flipping noisey generator. But they are still digging up the lane...
Hmmm... colonic irrigation by post... my brain is slowly beginning to work again!

Son: Hello! How's you?
I wish it was a prop! I didn't choose the door.... and I wish it was all some kind of inventive art installation, but alas no... it is all horribly true.
Good idea about the badge...

Lulu LaBonne said...

Bloody Heck - disaster - I see you've been rebranché but the noise ... the mess...

Dave said...

Welcome back commenting at my place. We missed you the last couple of days. Particularly as I was hoping people would think the mystery woman I pictured on saturday was you.

savannah said...

*ack* no power? or power via an extension cord? i don't even know where to begin, sugar! xoox

Scarlet-Blue said...

Lulu: I was given my own personal generator, but now I'm reconnected. Yes... a lot of mess and a lot of noise. One Jolly big drill.

Dave: I will pop over to see what I missed!

Savvy: A personal generator and a personal service to light me up!

Dave said...

In answer to your comment at my place yesterday, I couldn't possibly comment. I always keep the details of what young ladies have been up to confidential, as you know very well. After all, I didn't publish the photos I took during your visit to Norfolk, did I?

Scarlet-Blue said...

Dave: I was 25 when I was last in Norfolk... so it was you was it, that kept following me around with a camera?
Sx

Dave said...

Ah, yes, it was me, last summer. Cromer pier if I remember. Bit draughty, wasn't it?

Scarlet-Blue said...

Oh how I wish I was only 26!!! *Falls about laughing*
Sx

laughingwolf said...

what kind of idiotic contractor did that??? GRRRRR

Scarlet-Blue said...

Mr Wolfie: British workmen at their very best!!!

Memphis Steve said...

Um, what the hell? Who DOES this?
