I Didn't Melt!

Saturday, June 26, 2010

But it was a close one.

Show of hands -- Who knows it's hot in Texas?

Now, who among you knows how much hotter the hot gets without a working air conditioner?

Just in case you're among the uniformed, it gets hot enough to make the ceiling sweat. (Not literally. Literally what happens is when the AC decides it wants to be backed up, it sprays water in the air until it soaks through the ceiling and drips on the floor leaving not-so-lovely water rings that have to be repainted... yay me.)

This all happened Thursday, which is why there was no Teaser Thursday. (I know, I know, you're devastated ;-P )

Anywho, now that I can breathe without danger of spontaneous combustion, and my "finish" date has been pushed into July (Phooey!) I can get back to finishing my MS.

Thanks for all the wonderful comments you left on my last post.

Glad you didn't *really* melt! I could not make it two minutes without air conditioning.

So ... you really think if I dressed up like an elf and posted a pic, I would get more followers? 'Cause I'm ready to do it ... ;)

Our AC went kaput nearly two weeks ago. We're still waiting on the landlord to replace it (if it doesn't arrive this coming week, blood will be spilled). Fortunately, the unit of the building I live in is half underground (our windows are at ground level) so all I have to do is keep the windows closed during the hottest part of the day and open them back up late night/early morning. This makes it *bearable* but still not comfortable.

Also, it helps that we do not live in Texas. :P

Good luck finishing your ms! Don't let this minor setback bring you down.

Now that's hot! I'm glad you didn't melt and can get on with your writing. Go get 'em. :)

We've been to Houston and Austin, and Houston was so much worse for the humidity. Austin looks a lot like where I live now, but thankfully we have a dry heat.
