Dear Karma Fairy,
cap, captain miss america
I arrived home from my trip to Minnesota and Wisconsin to discover I had no electricity and all the food in my fridge had gone bad.

Why, you ask? Why did this happen?

Because the previous tenants owed the power company $2000 and they had apparently not been informed that the previous tenants had been evicted.

So my power was shut off.

This prompted me to go cry in Kris' office for a bit, at which point he bought me ice cream. I have the best bosses ever, just in case you all don't know this.

In the broiling weather we had yesterday, this amounted to a sheer impossibility of sleeping in the city without AC, so I told my parents I would be on the 6:52 train to Mount Kisco.

Then, at 6:30, my A key on my laptop stopped working.

I restarted my laptop.

Then, all the keys except for bcghos and z stopped working.

Then, all the keys except for S stopped working. And the S key would not stop working. It kept typing and typing and typing away with no assistance from yours truly. It would not stop typing.

So Maciej tried to fix it. Still no luck. So Kris loaned me his old computer. Again with the best bosses ever bit.

Anyway, at this point, I could only catch the 7:52 and I was an hour late to my parents'. Which was fine, because the road was flooded out and I still spent about a half-hour stranded at Starbucks whilst they tried to figure out how to get to me in the rainstorm.

Then I got back to their house and there was a conflict with their network because the landlords put in a wireless network with the same name and IP address. So I had to fix the network. That was a minor problem.

Go to work today. Get set up with another computer (the one I'm on now) and our ops guy is taking care of getting mine fixed. Yay. Go home at lunch, check electricity. On. Yay.

Get home from work.

Electricity, on.

Water? No so much. I now have no water.

What evil, terrible thing did I do in a past life? OR was it walking under a ladder yesterday morning? Was I really, as katieupsidedown seems to think, Hitler? Did I kill babies? Did I wear white after Labor Day? Please, someone tell me!

I'm sorry karma and the world are failing right now. I kick them with boots and poke them with sticks for you.

(Deleted comment)
it was because you like old people sex!

but for real, I'm glad (almost) everything got better =) Tea doesnt deserve bad karma =*(

When I simply scanned the post I somehow, with a mix of text and your icon, got the impression that you arrived home to five owls bearing messages. Sadly I was disillusioned fairly quickly :(. I hope things get better!


They are obviously the owls they sent you at 11, 12, 13, 14 and 15 that just got horrendously lost. After that they gave up on you, I'm afraid.

I'm sorry things aren't going so well. You deserve better ♥


It's because you have sexual congress outside the holy bonds of matrimoy.

See icon for more information.

That's horrible. I'm glad Jeff fixed it!

I think your apartment may be cursed.


The last inhabitants were Death Eaters and jinxed you. It's the only explanation. (The maggots were an early present from Kreacher! I TOLD YOU SO!)

Sorry you had to deal with all that - sounds painfully stressful. :/

It wouldn't stop typing 'S' because it was trying to tell you that I'm taking over the world. =D
