Last night, Martha and I went to Havana Grill in Cary. I had a "Living Social" gift certificate where I paid $10 for $20 credit. If you haven't used Living Social or Groupon, you need to do so! They really benefit you by exposing you to new restaurants and events and by saving you money in the meantime! That's how I found The Twisted Fork, which I just love.
I got home about 7:30pm; it was raining and thundering. My power was out--and that's when I remembered that I hadn't paid the electric bill! Argh! So I spent the night in darkness--my laptop had enough power to get me through a few Bejeweled 3 games; I read a little on my Kindle (by flashlight) and listened to a little music on my iPhone (but not much because I needed it charged enough to wake me up this morning!!) I just called the town, and by paying a FEE, I was able to arrange to have it back on in the next hour or two. Phewww. I still had hot-ish water this morning with which to wash up, so it wasn't truly "roughing" it. I'm really annoyed with myself because I HAD the money--I simply forgot to pay it!
