And Then There Was Light!..Well... Sort Of

Okay so the electricity man finally showed up yesterday at about 9 o´clock and worked very hard all day with the occasionally appearance of my land lady nagging at him and griping about what he was doing. At the end of the day, about 5:30, he comes in the house and starts trying lights. We finally get one light to turn on and I, being quite accustomed to electrical problems by now, think maybe if we unplug the fridge we will have better luck. I did and we did. So last night, as long as we left the fridge unplugged, we could turn on the tv and one light. We could even turn on the stove but it shocked the heck out of us when we tried to make dinner on it so we decided against that. Evidently there is a ¨pole¨that is lacking at my house that is causing the electricity to not be able to enter very well. I believe that possibly that means it´s not grounded but who knows. My land lord is too cheap to pay for whatever is needed so on Monday my good friend the electric man will come back and I´m going to pay for whatever is needed to completely fix the problem. In the mean time tiffany and I will continue to eat out and watch tv with one light one. I´m finding this whole situation quite humorous and I¨m just extremely glad that we have light and the tv now. For those of you that don´t know about my reality tv obsession I have one and we in the middle of a very intense season. I recommend the show Beauty and the Geek to each of you. We were able to watch it last night and it is quite the tear jerker and laugh maker. If you want to know more just email me and I will be happy to rant. You guys are the best. Love ya!
