Roll Your Own Blackout:
How we observed it

CLG was the third story on KFMB in San Diego this evening. I held a RYOB party at my apartment (we had a number of people through the evening but the film crew scared some of them off.) The reporter and cameraman hung out with us for about 90 minutes. I had about thirty seconds of air time but they cut out all of my anti-Bush commentary, although the piece overall was very favorable. I think the coolest thing was hearing the anchors say "a group calling themselves Citizens For Legimitate Government are holding a nationwide blackout to protest the Bush administration's energy policies". That was sooooo cool. My phone's already been ringing off the hook in support, since several of my friends were participating in their own homes.
Way cool.

I would be interested in how many people took part.. I know I am.. As I sit here trying to type in the dark, it is a rather interesting experience, but no lights on in my house.. I just took my dog for a walk and I would (estimate) at least 75% of my neighborhood here in San Diego is participating, the city has even turned out the street lights.. WAY TO GO!!!!





I just listened to CD's (with battery-operated CD player), lighted some candles and read books. My cats were having a blast romping and frolicking in the dark. I turned off my fans and my air conditioning and opened the windows, letting the fresh air in: a quiet evening in the dark.





We had a good time in our house with the blackout. It was actually pretty dark the whole time as it was rainy. We went out on the front porch and played rummy. When the mosquitos came out and threatened the baby, we moved to the kitchen table and played by candle light. It was just a nice relaxing evening without interference from electronic media...tv, or computer.
