No electric when key is turned...

When I turn the key either direction nothing happens. I've had no problems, drove it all weekend. The battery terminals are a little crusty, but I cleaned them a bit and they should be good. Fuses look good...any ideas? I need to get to work, haha.

craaaaaappp, just went out there to check the things jerryjeeper mentioned and noticed my headlights switch was turned on. They were on from around 6pm yesterday. I have a friend coming to jump me, that should do it I think.
