human squeegees

The heat will make you do funny things. Like sit in the dark for 2 hours because it somehow feels hotter when the CFL light bulb is buzzing overhead. (Okay, they don't buzz, but the heat makes my head buzz, so it's basically the same thing). I'm even typing in the dark because I'm one of those people that doesn't look at the keyboard when they type. I also take free typing tests for fun, which could contribute to the reason I'm always at home typing. The broiler known as our apartment caused a mouth breathing episode earlier in which I sat on the couch for a solid 20 minutes, unable to get started on any of the projects on my to do list. All I could do was stare at the little boxes beside each task and fantasize about making big fat checks in all of them without actually peeling my ass from the couch cushions. I finally made some progress after eating dinner and basking in the 2 minute chill of a sugar free Lifesaver popsicle.

Apparently some people react to the mugginess by throwing plastic bottles at cars, which is what happened to charrow on her way home from that place this afternoon. I hope it was full fledged Coke because if the guy thought he could do damage with a Diet Coke bottle, he really has been touched by the heat.

Damn I wish we had some watermelon right now.
