power outage

Around 10:54AM today, our building had a power outage that lasted about a minute. At 11AM, an announcement came over the PA system (yes, a PA speaker is built into every apartment—Orwellian, no?) to the effect that a test of the electrical system had just been performed. I'm imagining something like that scene in "Airplane!" where the guy in the air-traffic-control tower unplugs the runway lights, cackles "Just kidding," then re-plugs the master cord.

ADDENDUM: the power went out again for about two minutes while I was brushing my teeth. No announcement came over the PA this time. Whoops.
