Dear horoscope writers,

My horoscope for today was:

"Oh dear; the water-based moody influences could make you appear a little high maintenance. A tendency to be a glass-half-empty type will not only drain you, it will drain others too. Maybe your ideas will be a little too cautious and guarded, but taking a risk today may not be worth the stress!"

I don't check my horoscope regularly, but todays was pretty well suited. A more fitting horoscope for Cancers would be "You have a 50/50 chance of being electrocuted."Or in horoscope-ese it would be something like "Your half empty glass will almost kill you."

I spilled water on my surge protector as I was walking into the room & tripped over nothing. My natural grace & all. It was turned off at the time. I unplugged everything from it, including my pretty pink computer. Then came the philosophical question of..."It should be ok to turn it back on right? It's supposed to protect you from surges. That was a surge." I'm now in limbo, not really sure what to do. I am the reason why everything has a stupid warning label on it like "Do not use toaster to warm feet."

Sincerely,
Not sticking to a proper letter format today

Scary! Don't get electrocuted and wait till it's dry, although I'm not sure I know enough about electronics for you to take my advice.

are you a cancer!? I could have guessed. Pisces would be: Your half full glass of pixy dusted water isn't real, so don't look like an ass trying to grab it.

Hehe, if only they had been able to be more specific.
I'm glad you're still around to tell the tale :)

I'm not supposed to use my toaster as a space heater? Darn!

Could you ask at www.chacha.com? You can even text them. I'm a little jealous that you have a pink computer.

Who uses a toaster to warm their feet? And I think its awesome that you have a pink computer...hopefully it was all fine when you turned it back on!

i use the dishwasher as a heater. stand near it when it's on "heat dry" and it's insanely warm and toasty. :)

You don't use 'Clean Shower' spray as a bodywash, do you? I understand that warning is on the label.

Hope everything works out. Lucky your glass was half-empty--otherwise you'd have double the trouble!
