Perfect Conditions

Isn’t it wonderful to wake up to the dulcet tones of jackhammers outside your window? Absolutely conducive to concentration and creativity, right?


Our building has had sewer line problems for years and the Association finally decided to do something about it. Which is all good and fine, but the process sucks. (And I imagine it’ll be stinking as well soon enough.) Eight to five for the next two weeks, yay. Or longer if the job runs long. And since it’s 12:30 and they’re still at it, I’m wondering whether they plan to knock off for lunch. :/

It’s been incredibly hot here recently, so much so that for a couple of weeks we had to shut the computers down from mid-afternoon to mid- or even late evening because of the heat. It’s just started cooling off a few days ago and I’m trying to catch up on things that have piled up online, plus a few other things (like writing) and now this starts up. You really can’t win, you know? It must be something about this time of year.

I hope everyone else is doing well and having a more pleasant day than I am. [wave]
