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

Comment by Darren

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?

Comment by Derek

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)
