Ontario storm knocks out power for thousands
Heavy winds, rain, hail and possible funnel clouds batter region

Nearly 50,000 customers were without power across southern Ontario after an intense storm battered the province on Sunday, bringing heavy winds, rain, hail and possible funnel clouds.

The outages were spread over an area from Lake Huron to Toronto. The utility company Hydro One said it hopes to restore service to many of its customers by later Sunday night.

Toronto Hydro was also reporting multiple outages across the city including one at Yorkdale Shopping Centre.

I AM COINING A NEW TERM: WRITER’S BLIP. IT’S LIKE WRITER’S BLOCK,BUT INSTEAD OF A FULL POWER OUTAGE, IT’S JUST A SHORT FIZZLE IN THE ELECTRICITY, LIKE BEING UNABLE TO FIND EXACTLY THE RIGHT WORD OR PHRASE THAT YOU NEED. WRITER’S BLIP. 

Please fire me. The power went out at work today, and my boss asked me if I could fix it. I thought he was joking—apparently he was serious. I’m a part-time secretary.  He’s a member of MENSA with a PhD.  

Imagine there’s a power outage, but since the sun is finally up, at least you can now read.  Loki barges into your apartment, bored out of his mind, and he sits next to you on the sofa, but you are so absorbed into the book you hardly notice.  His usual antics don’t get your attention, so he leans over and starts reading the text out loud.  You shift so he can’t see the book anymore, but he apparently memorized the page and keep reciting the lines you haven’t gotten to yet.  Eventually he slips a rose made from ice down the spine of the book as a peace offering. 

Tonight I’m having to suffer through one of the most terrible thunderstorms storms ever. And normally I very much enjoy the comfort of rain and the sound of satan’s roaring asshole. But this one really hit the spot. TMI warning. I was about to go unleash one of the largest and most uncomfortable dumps I’d ever had from this satisfying steak dinner we had the night before. Ooooh boy. I was sooo ready to just flush it out of my system. And then lights out. The power went bye bye. like Gee, thanks Atlanta. Won’t even let me do business in peace. So now I have to hold in a digested three pounder for god knows how much longer in the heat of a dim candlelit room because let’s be honest. No one wants to shit in the fucking dark.

The significance of this shot

The significance of this shot is vital to why I ship these two together.

First, she’s listening to him talk passionately and ardently about being The Flash, then she can’t help it, she looks at his lips out of nowhere! Wut wut?

Why or why would the writers think that was planned? Danielle and Grant have natural chemistry and this is one of the many shots that just proves it.

By doing this she was interested in more than just his friendship in 1x07. I don’t know about you but I never look at my guy friends like this. That subtly is crazy, it’s just pure. It’s something the other ship doesn’t have. None of this was thought out between the actors, it just happened. Snowbarry and Granielle have the best natural chemistry I’ve ever seen and it hurts.

She’s looking at his lips, then back at his face, just I can’t with these two. This is Olicity for me all over again. I just hope the writers are paying attention to what’s really there rather then what’s manufactured.
