Circuits and Doughnuts

Filed under: Blog — Roman @ 2:35 pm

Today I took two pass/fail lab practicals in my Basic Electricity class. I created a “dead-short” in the series circuit with a switch but had no trouble making a parallel circuit with two bulbs on a switch and a third wired directly to the power source. Even if you know nothing about electricity, you’ll probably guess that the first is easier to do. So why did I screw it up? My brain is definitely out of shape when it comes to this sort of thing.

On a totally unrelated note, Laura and I were in Louisville, KY for a wedding over the weekend. Neither of us had ever been to that state. The grass really is a shade of blue…so crazy! The reception was held at a place called Yew Dell Gardens, in the horse country. The scenery was so lush and the grounds were impeccable. Though La and I never seriously considered a Big Wedding for ourselves, we had a great time being guests at Tony and Christine’s. Just at the end of the party, before the bride and groom jetted off in a vintage Thunderbird, all the guests were treated to Krispy Kreme doughnuts. Totally delicious. Totally sinful. Later that night I figured I’d also have to try some KFC, because when in Rome… Let me just say, Double Sin = Double Delish.

Oh and did I mention it was the end of Bourbon Week?

So now five pounds heavier, it’s time to start jogging again. Sigh.

  1. Congrats on the electricity test – you’ll do fine on the future ones. The Wifey and I have been getting up at 6AM to run a few miles before work. I know the feeling you’ll be going through soon enough.
