I purchased a book on bread making from Barnes & Noble after going to see Kill Bill on Saturday. As far as I know, there's no bread in KB, but I like bread, so I bought a book on how to make it. Anyway, I made the "First Loaf of Bread" recipe on Sunday, and it came out pretty well! I had peanut butter and marshmallow cream sandwiches for dinner to celebrate! For Saturday's dinner and Sunday's lunch and Monday's lunch, I fried up some chicken tenders with parmesan and oregano added to the dredging mix, and it was good.
Based on their actions, I can only conclude that Pepco is a company of liars and thieves who use their monopoly status to defraud their electricity customers. There is no possible way that I am using as much electricity for cooling and whatnot in my modest 700 square foot apartment as someone I know who owns a 6000 square foot multi-story home less than a mile away. This is completely irrational.
Maybe it's those 12 computers you have on all the time? ;) Well, my power bill is lower than ever before, now that I have the a/c turned off... I'm still waiting on my cable bill, so I can see if they left any of my refunds out and then pounce on them! Comcast's customer service at least answers the phone quickly enough that wasting their time (money!) with requests isn't so boring.
It's actually less than that; when I switched to being responsible for my own electric bill I switched to only leaving constantly used computers on all the time. I also disabled all of my DC apps, so that they wouldn't be constantly loaded. My A/C hasn't been on even once this month, so I'm hopeful that they might actually send me a reasonable bill this time. But I'm not betting on it.
