11:16 pm: Another Orange Cat

After I got offline last night, I read the paper and watched the four hours of TV I'd taped earlier. By then, the sun was coming up and I put shoes on and took the trash and recycling out. When I backed the van to the bins and dumpster enclosure and got out, I saw a pretty little orange tabby with collar coming toward me. I talked to it and it headed for my open door. I told it that kitties didn't get in the car and beat it to the door and shut it. The cat went to lie down on the sidewalk while I put the trash and recycling in their places. When I got back in the car, it hustled under the end of another car.

I treated myself to a McDonald's breakfast again and picked up Tuesday's mail on the way in -- all stuff that went into the empty mixed paper recycling bin.

I was ready to read at 8am and had the acetaminophen and turned off the light at 10am. I had the alarm set for 6pm and didn't wake up until then. I'm sleepy now, but I plan to hold out until 2am or so and see if I can get back to normal. Most forecasters have us in the 80s for Saturday, Saturday, and Monday.

80s. That'd be nice. Forecasters have us in the high 90s, with chance of thunderstorms.

We had the hottest June and July ever, which meant I had to stay inside a lot. I'm not supposed to go out when it's 90F or higher, or Code Orange or Red. It's not usually a problem because the 80 and 90 days just intermix, but this summer, it's been really hot. I missed June and July bookgroups, and I hope I can go this month.

Don't move to Houston; you'd never go outside between May and October unless it was raining.

It can get toasty here in Albuquerque, but nowhere near as much as in Phoenix. (Now there's a city that deserves it name.)

I have a friend in Tucson, where it's in the 100s most of the summer!

We'll actually attending a con there, but in mid-November, by which time things will have cooled off, AJ Reardon would say.

Ha! I forgot you knew AJ! You should plan to see her while you're at the con.

I expect that AJ will also be at TusCon.

I don't think so. They've never gone to a con other than Comic-Con once. She's much more interested in bellydancing.

Yeah, and I'd never move to Minneapolis, as much as I'd like to, because I can't walk on snow. The only likely place I could move would be Seattle or near environments, and I can't afford that.
