it's the heat

Well, I missed Minnetokyo again, but not without good reason - Scott's TransSport blew a hose, so I gave him a lift over to WalMart since I figured they might have hoses to go with all the tires & filters. That was a no-go, but they did have plumbing tape and clamps so he can patch the hose back together long enough to get to a parts place tomorrow and get a real hose. Got that, got bread and stuff, and headed home.

On the way I realized that one of the reasons my bedroom was so damn hot was because I had the laser printer hooked up, and since this is an extremely simple model with no off switch or powersave, it's running all the time. I unplugged it when Scott and I got home, and I swear it's 10 degrees cooler in here already. Yay! Can't believe it took me so long to figure that out.

Early bedtime for me, even though I woke at noon...tired and a little out of sorts. Couldn't find a couple of books I was looking for over the weekend (though I did find my missing Paglia collections) and made little progress on the background for Blood Red Skies, which at this point is what's holding up the story. Can't do gigantic star-smashing battles until you build the fleets, after all...and you have to have the background built up to support those fleets.
