It's noon in July, kids are on summer vacation and yet all the streets are totally empty of both cars and people.

You actually burn your hand opening the car door.

Sunscreen is sold year round, kept right at the checkout counter.

You put on fresh sunscreen just to go check the mail box.

Some fools will market mini-misters for joggers and some other fools will actually buy them. Worse.....some fools actually try to jog.

You know hot air balloons can't rise because the air temperature is hotter than the air
inside the balloon.

I haven't journaled for a few days so time to make a few comments.

Work sucks.

I think my boss has gone crazy. He's up in Tempe on assignment for a new computer system that is supposed to start SOME time this year, and he keeps making phone calls and giving conficting orders for things he wants me to do. And the most irritating part is that he doesn't call me; he calls the team lead, or one of the other workers. I have a phone, I'm not an idiot, I can take direction. But he will call Sylvia N and tell her to tell me one thing, then call Sylvia T and tell her to tell me something else. AARRGGHHH!!!!!

Other than that, life is pretty good. I currently have seven stories in progress, and none of them are 'talking' to me right now. The good thing is that no new plot bunnies are bugging me either. I really hope to get something finished this weekend.

We're going to see HG2TG tomorrow. I wanted to see it anyway, but we have a friend who works at the theater and he promised that the Serenity trailer will be playing. To be able to see it on the big screen will be worth the price of admission.
