|11:42 pm - No longer eating chocolate biscuits in the dark|
You know, I was going to do a post here about the busyness of work (and the mild melodramas therein), and the temporary housemate, and how the book I just finished reading was so totally inspired by Watchmen despite being an entirely different genre (Vaguely steampunk fantasy, in this case).
But then just before 10pm one of my fuses exploded, so I've spent the last hour and a half trying to find the emergency electrician contact number, (which failed miserably, even after calling both my housemate and my old housemate), and eventually calling one number, which directed me to another number, which directed me to the actual number for the electrician. All of which was done in that dark.
Of course once he actually showed, it was all fixed in about 10 minutes, so that's life for you.
At least I can sleep in tomorrow. And the day after, huzzah long weekend! And I think frabjously has her meetup think tomorrow, too.
Current Mood: tired
No, it was The Kingdom Beyond the Waves by Stephen Hunt. The main part of the story isn't precisely Watchmen-like, but the villain is kind of WHY HALLO THAR OZYMANDIAS. And one of the heroes is a morally dubious, secretive and highly violent rebellious type who has a mask, and when it gets taken away starts screaming at people to give him back his face.
