It started yesterday when I wrote that ridiculous post while I was still half asleep. Lord, someone make sure I never do that again. This is where the story starts though, because I had been coming off of a weekend when I got very little sleep and then Monday night I woke up every half hour because it was so stinkin' hot in my apartment.
See, I'm cheap, thrifty, poor, whatever you want to call it and I was determined not to turn on my air conditioner this year until absolutely necessary. Also, I just like having the windows open. So I've had my heat and my air conditioner off since early March. I've used a portable electric heater when I'm cold and a fan and open windows when I'm hot. When I woke up this morning and it was 75*-78* in my apartment at 8am, I knew it was time. So before I left for work I closed all of my windows and flipped on the air conditioner.
When I got home (with an arm full of groceries, of course) and opened my front door, I almost died from the heat wave. I could hear my air conditioner running, but it was 90* in my apartment. It was like a hot box. The humidity was unreal.
Called my landlord, who said he obviously couldn't get anyone there until first thing this morning, so I was going to have to suffer through the night. Yea, easy for him to say. I was also ticked because my air conditioner had probably been running all day long trying to cool my apartment. Which means I'm going to pay an electric bill for an air conditioner running for an entire damn day.
I flipped open my windows, put my groceries away, and changed into shorts and a tank top. I decided that I was only going to concentrate on cooling one room, so I grabbed both of my rotating fans and took them to my bedroom. Kept the lights off, so there was no unnecessary heat and laid on my floor and laughed hysterically for a good 10 minutes. Because.. of course this happened.
Then I put Harry Potter and The Order Of The Phoenix in my dvd player, got my laptop out, and worked on bloggy things.
Crappy and annoying things happen, sometimes you've just got to lay on the floor of your wood paneled hot box and laugh them off.
