We decided not to go to Roller Derby tonight. I think we're all kind of derby'ed out. If we had others coming, we would still go, but since everyone else bailed on us, we'll just kind of do our own thing tonight. Not sure what that is yet, though.

I've decided not to bug the property manager today or tomorrow, but come Monday if something still hasn't been done, she will be hearing from me again. The temporary solution to this problem is to take really long, hot showers. Today the temp raised 3 degrees because of it. It'll probably drop again by the time I get home, but whatever. It's a temporary solution.

Alright, I need to finish getting ready to head out.

Until tomorrow. . .

I can't think of an appropriate title for today's entry. I already used 'brr' yesterday.

The temp has dropped over 10 degrees since the night before last. I text the property manager again and apparently I'm not the only one in my tower without heat. Hopefully something gets done about it tomorrow. If it gets much colder in here, I'll get sick again. For once I'm hoping for a bright, sunny day. Or for the heat to get fixed. The latter is more favorable.

I helped out a friend today. He needed to get a tote for moving and I offered to drive him so that he wouldn't have to worry about taking the tote on a bus. We wandered around a couple different stores, got what we needed {I needed a hair brush; mine snapped a few days ago} and headed over to the mall to grab a bite to eat. We went to Red Robin. The food was tasty. Afterward we took a walk through the mall to assist in getting the food through our systems before heading back to the car.

Nothing else happened today. I've been watching The Walking Dead most of the day. I think I have two more episodes in season 2, then I just have to wait for Netflix to get season 3. Hopefully I won't have to wait long.

Anywho, laundry and Derby is tomorrow. I will probably be writing an early entry. Or tomorrow will be the one day I miss for this month. I guess we'll have to wait and see.

Until then. . .

Brr!

Having my heat break wouldn't matter if it was 30 degrees warmer outside. But since it's only 52 degrees outside right now, having a non-working heater sucks. I think the goosebumps on my arms are starting to become permanent. I also shouldn't have to wear a hoodie in my own apartment. This is ridiculous.

I've reported the broken heater to my property manager, but who knows how long until they'll have someone come out to fix it. If my thermostat gets down to 61 {only 4 degrees left} before they come out out to fix it, I will be contacting her again. I pay my rent, I should get my maintenance done in a timely fashion.

It also wouldn't be quite as big a deal if it was sunny outside. The sun beating on my windows would help warm the place up. But of course this is Spring time in the Pacific Northwest so there won't be much constant sunshine for another few weeks.

What makes this funny is that come July or August or even September, I'll probably be talking about just the opposite: how I wish I had A/C and that it was cooler out because it's too damn hot in here. Hopefully the summer isn't nearly as sweltering as it was last year.

Until then, I'm cold. I am not okay with the fact that my heater isn't working. Fuckers better fix this shit soon.

Until tomorrow . . .

98
Wednesday. 4.10.13 7:51 pm
98 days in to the year and when I have a day like today it makes this challenge a little more difficult. Don't get me wrong, I like having a slow, boring day at work. It just means I have to reach for something to type up.

Which means you'll get to read about the weather we had today. {Food and weather ... those are the go to topics when you're stretching for a conversation.}

The day started out cloudy and kind of drizzly. Then the wind picked up along with the rain and it made for a rather icky day. After that the wind blew the storm North and the sun popped out. According to the news, it will be about the same tomorrow as well.

Right now we've got about 13 hours of daylight. The sun is rising shortly before 7 and setting shortly before 8. Only a couple more months and it will be getting light out before 5 and staying that way until almost 10.

Anywho, that's about all I can stretch for today. We'll see what tomorrow brings.

Until then. . .

Feel good
Tuesday. 4.9.13 7:44 pm
If you enjoy watching animated films and have yet to see Rise of the Guardians, I would suggest you see it. It's definitely a feel good movie. I won't be watching it tonight, but definitely this weekend.

Have you ever had a dream that made you feel tired? I woke up from this dream feeling exhausted. I was at work for 20 hours, from 6am until 2am, but couldn't leave until 3 and had to be back at 6. I ended up just staying awake and going in for the next shift. The thing that happened right before leaving the 20 hour shift was very important. I had to keep emphasizing the importance of making sure a doctor understood that he had to lock his own door. I think it was the reason I wasn't able to leave until 3. I just had to make sure he understood that he needed to lock his door because I was leaving and wouldn't be able to do it for him.

Needless to say thanks to this dream, I spent most my actual shift today yawning. Thankfully it was just a dream. God forbid I ever end up having to work 20 hours straight. It's one thing choosing to be awake and busy for that long. It's a whole other ball park if you have to be at work for that length of time. 12 hours is difficult, 16 is worse. I don't even want to think about how much it would suck to have to work 20.

My actual shift today was busy, again, which didn't help in the tiredness department. Sure, it kept me up and going, but it didn't wake me up at all. It was nice outside, though. Overcast for most of the day, with some sun breaks, cool and breezy. Probably not what people would call the perfect Spring weather, but still nice.

Anywho, I think that's all I have to write about today. Especially since I just sat here staring at the screen for the last 5 minutes unable to come up with anything else. I wonder what tomorrow will bring.

Until then. . .

Yummy

That weird laugh you have to make when you know you'll cough if you laugh your normal laugh and don't feel like coughing. . . People are going to start thinking this is how I actually laugh.

After not shaving for at least a month, I decided that today was the day to finally give myself smooth legs. I know why I don't do this more often, but I really should. It's such a good feeling once I get it done ... I just lack the motivation 99% of the time. Perhaps I'll set a goal to not go more than 2 weeks without shaving again. It is getting warmer out ... not. It will eventually get warmer though and when that time comes, I want to be prepared.

I'm not sure if I mentioned this before; I think I have. During one of my doubles worked last week, I discovered that mixing Velveeta Shells and Cheese with Campbell's Tomato Soup is rather delicious and quite filling. Not sure about how healthy it is, but I've never been one to pay attention to my caloric intake. I decided that I wanted to eat that particular dish for the next couple days so I bought a family size box of the shells and cheese and a few microwaveable cups of the soup. I managed to make a box that has 6 servings turn in to almost 3. I ate a little more than I should have today, but I still have a decent amount for the next two. After that's gone I'll need to come up with something else to fix that will last me for next week.

Anywho, I'm gonna go do something to pass the next hour or so before I call it a night.

Until tomorrow NuTang. . .
