Earth Hour

We did that Earth Hour thing last night. It was really nice. Baby Squish and Baby Squish's Steve (BSS) were round for dinner (steak pie, since you ask, followed by Irish Academic's excellent cheeses). We sat around the fire singing the old folk songs (mainly Rodgers and Hammerstein), as our ancestors did in days of yore. It was not really dark, as light poured in from all the streetlamps. When we switched the lights back on again at 9.30, they seemed so hard, flat and prosaic, we immediately switched them off again. I'm planning to set a 9pm curfew from now on - we'll get some tealights and dispense with the electric lighting. Saves on utility bills too!

We went to see Monsters and Aliens instead. Probably used a kadjillion times as much energy as sitting home watching television. I'm surely going straight to hell.
