Earth Hour is Today! (March 31) between 8:30 and 9:30pm.
Everyone is encouraged to turn off non essential power for an hour to impact global climate change!
As usual, we will have every possible electrical implement going at the Bandito Lair. Hair dryers will be plugged into sockets and hanging from the wall - going full force. All the computers will be going... TV's... radio's... hell, the BLENDER will be going - and we won't be making anything but blended water.
I hope enviro family sits around.. hubby, wife and two kids (insert cat or dog)... playing scrabble by candle light. And I hope someone knocks the candle over and their house burns to the ground (with them all escaping of course).
I'll be making sure that even if 50 of you lemmings on BCSB participate, it will be completely neutralized by my antics.
This year I'm stepping it up a notch, I'm plugging in the outdoor Christmas lights... with a flasher attachment so the blink on and off for the full hour. I've got my range hood going right now, just for fun... to waste a little extra juice. Half my house is lit up right now and nobody else is even up. The outdoor lights are on and it's light outside.
Gotta run... my 22n'd slice of toast just popped up. I'm not eating, I'm just toasting loafs all morning.
Are you an earth day supporter? Tell me your story. On second thought, don't bother... I don't give a shit.
I want to hear from all of you who think this is complete rubbish. Tell me what YOU are doing to waste as much power as possible. Wash and dry your entire clothing today. Do the bedsheets. RUN EVERY SINGLE DISH YOU OWN through the dishwaster today. Turn the garberator on for like... 3 hours straight. How creative are you at flying in the face of the enviro peeps?
Turn your heat up to 35 and open all the windows. I'm going to turn my oven to clean in a few minutes... and I'll repeat that cycle at LEAST 5 times today. The amount of power it wastes is astonishing!
