Getting cut off from the web sucks.
That sounds really cool. We usually don't get power outages here though. My part of Seattle is usually warmer than the rest, so we don't get more than a couple inches of snow at most.

We get random power outages a lot, often because of car accidents knocking out power lines. It's really annoying if you sleep through it and wake up and your clock is wrong.

Ah, the "Home Alone" problem. At least you don't accidentally leave someone behind. Though honestly, Kevin is such a whiny little noob I'd like to shove him out a window.

Lol xD I think I'm more afraid to be in my own basement in the dark than someone else's.

Basements are creepy. I want to take a picture of me in mine holding up this big old road flare or something. That would look so cool.

'Twould :D The one good thing is that the lighting doesn't really change throughout the day, which is good for shooting videos and sleeping.

That does sound rather useful. Few things annoy me more than light interrupting my sleep. You could probably throw epic parties down there.

I've had a couple decent ones, but I don't host parties often. My parents are obsessively anti-noise. A girl on the other side of the cranberry bog at the end of my street has some pretty cool ones, I usually go to hers.

Oh, a cranberry bog! I'd love to slog through that.
Parties really aren't all they're cracked up to be. Well, the huge ones anyway. 5 or so people in someones basement just chatting about nerdy things and watching bad movies? Thats what I'm talking bout

Those parties are the best. Same with the bonfire and riding around in a golf cart kind. Also the throwing snow at each other in tank tops at 2AM on New Year's kind.

Those rule. Don't forget the 10 at night squirt gun fights in the summer. Crazy mindless fun.

Absolutely. And they're much easier to feel comfortable in if you don't know anybody, which happens to me a lot. I have a lot of friends who don't know any of my other friends.

Same on my end. Hell, the last party I went to I only know one person, and I'd only met her face-to-face once before (at the Westefeld meeting, actually). And clart, was it fun. Best night in a long while.

The last party I went to, I didn't know anybody but the girl hosting it and a few people who spent most of the night dancing, so I started talking to some guy from her school (the conversation was almost entirely one-sided). The next day my friend told me that he told her he was going to ask me out and I freaked out because I didn't want to have to say no but I didn't know him at all. I felt so bad, but his friend convinced him not to do it anyway.

Woah. Most complex relationship I've ever heard from ANYONE. Guess that shows how lame and autisticy my life is. Ironic you should mention that...the girl who I met at the Westerfeld meeting eventually became my girlfriend. Valentines Day, to be exact. We went to downtown Seattle to laugh at couples, and ended up as one.
