"Didn't I offer less than I lost?"

Day before yesterday was astoundingly hot. I think the heat index reached 108˚F. It was cooler yesterday, and cooler today, but we're looking at an actual temperature of 100˚F on Saturday. Currently, it's only 92˚F, with the heat index at 93˚F.

One of the many reasons I'm grateful that I got to go to grammar school, junior high, and high school in the 70s and earliest 80s is that (at least here in Alabama) we got more than three full months of summer vacation, late May to the start of September.

No work. I could write an entire book about how I'm not working, only I couldn't because...well...because that would, after all, be writing, which is work, and see the last sentence.

Tuesday night was a momentous bit of Second Life RP. Don't begrudge me that much. It and the heat are the only notable things of late.

Today, I read two chapters of Light in August and did some cleaning in my office.

Please have a look at the current eBay auctions. Thanks.
