murphy's lecky law

(october 24, 2007)

tonight i wanted to make a cheezey bean jacket potato but we had no electricity (i also wanted a hot shower after my run this afternoon but that has been temporarily postponed), so i resigned myself to pasta as we have a gas stove. but then, as if god himself was listening to my pleas for the beans and the cheese on the baked potato, the electricity came back on and i cleaned and popped two potatoes into the oven and busied myself while they baked away. midway into the cooking time, the electricity went out so i was stuck frying them until fully cooked by candle light only to finish just in time for the lights to come back on so i could enjoy my meal in the full light of the irony that is kenya.

" full light of the irony that is Kenya." Incredible. You must be terribly dedicated to be so far away from the comforts of home.

it is not so bad, i quite like it here contrary to my complaints at times. just a little frustrating now and again!

and to be able to bust a move down to tanzania or to the indian ocean on a weekend more than makes up for all the hiccups along the way.
