    Albert Einstein's definition of insanity went something like this:

    Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

    Well, it's official people, I am insane.

    See, for the last three years I have lived in the exact same room. 12' x8'. Window that looks out onto nothing but the interior air shaft of our building (that's right, interior - aka, it is approx 3'x3' and leads nowhere. The top is closed off by a skylight). Basically - an oven. And yet, every summer. EVERY SINGLE SUMMER. I think "Huh, this summer will be fine, I don't need an air conditioner!"

    Stupid. Stupid. Stupid.

    I am sitting here now, at 3am, wondering why, just like last year, I'm awake all night. Crying. Wondering if it is possible to die of heat stroke in your sleep. I doubt it. Because if you're THAT hot - no way in hell are you sleeping.

    Add on to all of this that I am PMSing like there's no tomorrow, that I chose tonight to streak my hair blonde with an at-home kit, and you've got a zebra-headed-hormonal-sleep-deprived Finy, and let me tell you, it isn't pretty.

    At least the Sox won tonight. If we'd lost to the Royals ... I REALLY would have lost it.

      Hopefully Wakefield will be ok and won't join Clement and Wells

      Oh god you poor thing! Maybe you should ask for an air conditioner for your birthday.

      Darren: Crossing my fingers, but with the Sox luck lately I am not that optimistic. What I REALLY hope doesn't happen is that Wakefield tries to play through it. I'd rather him take a stint on the DL to rest than lose games because he's pushing too hard.

      Esther: Done and done. I took the day off from work today because I was so tired/at-wis-end. Bought the air conditioner this morning, already installed it, and mom offered to give it to me as my birthday present. I am now waiting for my room to cool down enough for me to take a nap.

      I forgot that Wakefield got hurt... I was too busy marvelling at Papi's base-stealing skilz.

      Dude. Sitting in the temperate weather in SD, I didn't realize that there was a nationwide heat wave. It's almost unbelievable.

      I hear ya on the hormones thing.

      I had a wretched day at work - now I'm home, it's hotter than hell in my room, and I have to read 60+ pages and write a 2 page essay for class tomorrow.

      The fun never ends!

      Glad you've finally got an AC to keep you cool.

      I know that air conditioners are a little expensive, but have you ever heard of a big box fan?

      I'd give you a hug, but I'm afraid that you'd A) Melt or B) Rip my head of in a hormonal heat induce insanity. Neither would be pretty. ;O)
