Too Freaking Hot

Missing Photo! A photograph was here! Don’t know where it went!

Finnair.jpg It’s so hot I can’t sit at my desk, even though the air conditioner hasn’t been turned off in three days. That’s my desk, with the curtains drawn, also for three days straight. The only place that’s bearable is on the couch, in front of the air conditioner. It’s insane.

I’m so glad I got past my reluctance to change and upgrade things. I’m sitting comfortably on my couch with my Powerbook, on a wireless network, with my digital camera, which took the picture of my desk, which I uploaded in seconds to my blog (can’t upgrade the blog software, alas, but that’s a $$$ issue) and I’ve got my HDTV running the non-stop, hell-in-a-handbasket news, oh! It’s one of the PC guy and MAC guy commercials! I love these. AND! I just got email from my British editor congratulating me on my publication day (for the UK paperback)!

Life is good. For a moment here and there. Fuck. IT’S A TRICK. Isn’t it? The universe is messing with me.

Update, 3:25PM. Finney joins me on the couch. Rumsfield is on CNN, so I have to turn the channel. Ugh. Jennifer Lopez on another channel, can’t stand her. Oh good, Rumsfield’s gone. Back on CNN. Hello little Finney. Thank you for joining me on the couch.
