It was 100 degrees F outside yesterday, people. I don’t know about you, but that’s too hot for me. We just got an air conditioner installed in the bedroom and Jenny loves it. A nice 74 degrees all day long. I’ll leave my sweating to my daily workout.
My regular exercise, by the way, has shifted from running outside to getting on the stationary bike inside. I don’t like getting up and exercising outside first thing upon waking. I mean, for one thing my hair is a giant frizz-ball when I wake up. If I am to run outside in the summer here in Albany, unfortunately the morning is the only good time to do it. I suppose I could run in the evening but young people this town seem to love to shout obscene things to runners from moving cars. I prefer to exercise in public only when the idiots are sleeping off their hangovers… What is it about a moving vehicle? Can you imagine the same person yelling “PENIS!” at me while I run by them and they’re standing still on the sidewalk? It’s like certain people get this high from being assholes while traveling at 20 mph or more. I just don’t understand. Ah well. It’s not like this didn’t happen in San Diego either. Assholes abound where there are moving vehicles and runners on sidewalks I guess.
Another great thing about air conditioning – I get to knit more. Last summer when we were here and had no AC I didn’t knit much of anything. Any part of the knitted item that rested on my lap was like wearing a blanket. I’ll get much more accomplished this summer.
Last night we had a bug problem and I really really hope they didn’t come in through the AC unit. These tiny little katydid moth type of flying bugs that are attracted to light. Well we had a couple dozen in the room last night – Joe and I opted to sleep in the other bedroom… Between the spiders and the wasp that got in through the closed window (eek!), this is an interesting bedroom. But I love the AC! And room is nice and bright and open, very nice for a living space. Buggy bugs, stay outside!
