A powercut took out all our PC's and shut down all of central Bristol.

Thanks, God. That's one I owe you. I buggered off home and took Mrs Gimp out to lunch instead.

Shit, it didn't make it up the hill into Clifton. :( I could have done with the break today, it was fucking madness, but at least I don't have to work until midnight like some of those other poor saps.

Sounds like he's hedging his bets. Maybe this Pope thing is getting to him.

Twas my first thoughts as well. ;)

Congrats to you, Laz! Sounds like a nice, unexpected break.

So, downtown Bristol was blacked out...

... did anyone notice the difference?

The Pope dies and Bristol blacks out.

Must be some holy relic there. Goodbye the Turin Shroud and hello the Bristol Electrician's Screwdriver......

Perhaps the Holy Grail is buried somewhere under Bristol...spooky. Well, not really...
