A/C Down and the Problems that go with it!

With 100 degree temperatures looming, my a/c unit has decided to commit seppuku and yesterday was an absolute nightmare since both my wife and I work and cannot get home to sort things out. Here’s hoping that the management company can pass on relevant information…I cannot take another night like that. 87 degrees indoors if the thermostat is to be believed, but I think that’s on the fritz too.

My wife decided that I should have our cats at the office yesterday so we bought along a litter tray, food and water bowls and they spent a very aggravating day bothering me,  growling and fighting with each other. We were babysitting yesterday evening and left the cats at the office. As soon as we were done babysitting, we returned to the office to pick up the cats with the intention of driving over to my mother-in-law to spend the night, but my wife decided that it was too late (it was 9pm) so we went home.

After getting the cats unpacked we watched So You Think You Can Dance (I don’t get contemporary dance, and my wife was having a great laugh trying to explain it to me.) and do people really think that the judges will fall for these sob stories and ignore the bad dancing? To me contemporary dance is like modern art. You either understand it or you hate it.

Following SYTYCD was an hour of hilarity (which would have been funnier if it was cooler and we weren’t melting) with Whose Line Is It Anyway. Eventually we decided on trying to get to sleep…not an easy proposition.

I really hope the A/C is fixed today.

Writing Begins Here!!

Tonight, I am going to get off my a** and take a serious look at my original fiction timeline and see if I can find a good starting point for a story.

The only dilemma I currently have is whether I write a short story or a novel.

The timeline covers approximately 250 years of human history and there are several possibilities…
