Hot as Hell

Our air conditioner is shot. Thankfully we live in an apartment and don't have to pay for a new one; but it could take a few days. By the time I got home from work yesterday it had to of been 120 degrees inside my apartment. The maintenance guy said he would have a portable a/c unit in our house in an hour. So we took our kitties and went to a friends' house for a while. When we got back he had put the a/c unit in our room. I wasn't thinking he would do this, and now I am embarrassed because there were dirty clothes all over the corner of the room, underwear showing and all. The portable a/c was blowing cold air but it was still 91 degrees in there and the rest of the house was over 100 degrees. So we grabbed the kitties, their food and litter box, water and snacks, some dvds. We put a towel under the door to keep the air in and didn't leave the room for the rest of the night. We wet wash clothes and so it wasn't to uncomfortable. My kitties slept in the bathtub; at one time I wet a sock and laid it on my kitty, she didn't move, she loves water, crazy girl!

By the time I went to bed it was 89 degrees and when I woke up it was 79, not bad.

Simulated Life

I played Sims 2 yesterday for like six hours. So now I keep thinking that in real life I should be able to get pregnant after woo hooing once, then get married in about four minutes and have a roof raising party with just two guests before I start showing, then have the baby appear in my arms three days later, then quit my job and hire a nanny sometimes so I can have time to myself. All the while my husband keeps getting promoted everyday because he is awesome.

In real life though, I played the Sims while I stayed home from work, felt sick all day, did nothing productive, let Brad clean around me, cooked dinner, and am no closer to having money for a baby or getting married.

New Shows

I like TV and I'm not ashamed. I hate commercials though, and don't watch a lot of TV that isn't recorded. Since most shows are on hiatus, there is little to watch. So I have added some new shows to my rotation that I am excited about.

My Unique Family on TLC. I haven't watched it yet, but it is set to record. The first one I'm watching is about a woman who has started a Wiccan Church in a town that thinks witches are evil.

Miami Ink on TLC. I just started watching this and I love it. I only have one tattoo now but I want more and this show helps give me ideas.

Cash Cab on Discovery Channel. A great trivia show that takes place in a cab when people get in.

Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip. This one is so so so good and it was gone for months and I was scared that it would never come back. Thankfully they are showing new ones again, but it seems just to finish up the season. Supposedly it is too expensive to make. So they will cancel it and replace it with two more reality shows, great :*( Stupid!

I have started watching the baby shows again: A Baby Story, Bringing Home Baby, House of Babies. I get obsessed for a while and then stop.

I am returning to HGTV again too. There is a new show about green decorating that looks good, Red, Hot and Green. Not such a good title, but I am recording it.

Dance by the Light of the Moon

I work in the same building as this guy Jordan. We used to sit near each other but now I only see him every few weeks. He sends emails to the whole building and I see his last name at least once a week, but every time I see him I go blank. I ask myself, "What is his last name?!" but all that keeps coming to me is, Catalano, and for a second I convince myself that that is totally correct.

Birth Control

I have taken hormonal birth control pills off and on since I was 15. I should have always been on it because if I'm not then I have a period about once every six month. I just started Yasmin again after not being on it for like a year (no periods during that time). I remember how much I hate it. I get really sensitive to smells and threw up in a public restroom the other day, head aches, nauseous, loss of appetite, tender breasts, and aversion to sex. Sucks for me and for Brad. But hey, at least I have periods and cramping to look forward to now! That is what was missing in my life.
