Manawolf vs. the Smoke Detector - Part II

Hmmm. Well I thought Part I was up on the News section of my site, but I don't see the news section. I don't remember taking it down. Hrm. Well for those who aren't familiar, I'll have to upload it to my LJ.

Later.

Because the smoke alarm woke me up again. This time with "chirping." Thing is, we replaced the batteries just a day ago! So I'm all WTF, but I go looking for the other battery in the pack, but I can't figure where it got put.

Well fine, maybe I'll just climb up there and look. It's a fresh freakin' battery, it must not be a problem with that. So I pry out the battery case, shove the battery around a little, and push the case back in.

STILL. BEEPING.

I remember what mice said about her iPod, not that a smoke detector is an iPod... Still, I gave it a good smack, then waited to see if it would dare beep again.

And waited....

SUCCESS. (If I may be so bold as to potentially jinx myself, as the night ain't over yet.)

But the only problem is... now I'm awake, and I realize I'm awful hungry. A smidgen too hungry to go back to sleep easily.

So that brings me full circle back 'round to here, drinking pineapple juice and nibbling otana's homemade inari in front of the computer at quarter 'till 5 in the morning.

*yawn*

Edit: Thank gawd I don't have to go to work tomorrow. Thank you, President's Day.

At my old apartment I got so tired of the nonsensical beeping that I removed the batteries for good. And oh yes, I remember reading the story on your website about the smoke detector!
But hey, didn't it beep worse when you took them out? When ours was without batteries for the short time we were changing it the thing went nuts.
Hmmm, no. Perhaps it was an older model. At any rate before I moved out I stuffed the batteries back in so that the landlord would not be suspicious.
*evil grin* Well it turns out the more-frequent beeping only lasted a little while.

Of course, now I'm REALLY awake.

Nnnnnng.
