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.

Check neutral safety switch or jostle the shift lever while trying to start.

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.

You'll need to put the battery on a charger. Just jump starting and expecting the battery to recharge itself as you drive isn't going to work well and you will most likely have problems; low idle, rough running,...
