Default getting pretty warm in here...

so our power went out for absolutely no reason, theres no strom, its not windy, it hasnt snowed in over a week, just went out, and after it was out for about an hour i decided to start lighting candles, i lit about 60 candles in my room so as to be lit almost as well as electrical lighting, and mere moments after lighting the last candle the power came back on, needless to say i was pissed, and just to be stubborn since i tookt he effort tolight all those candles, i turned out the lights in my room and am typing by candlelight, ill blow them out if it tops 90 degrees in here

Just becarefull if you have any tea lights close together, when those aluminum bases melt down they turn into a very flamable liquid. Learned that one the hard way.

Had about a dozen of them stacked up like a pyramid, looked cool, even once the inferno started. Was able to put it out before it spread to the end table it was on.
