Whole lotta labia.
[how ya feelin'? |productiveproductive]

Five things make a post, eh?

1) I have put the following up on my whiteboard at the office:
Yes, I am still here.
No, I have no idea when.
I feel fine, thank you.
August 1st.

In hopes that it will save people some time.

2) I finished a meeting this morning by taking pictures of all of the whiteboards. I was congratulated for being a very clever geek. Now, months from now, we won't be all "Oh that wasn't included in the estimate.. you never mentioned that.."

3) When talking to my friend Mike about the breastfeeding class he went to with his expectant wife it's probably best if I don't refer to it as "Boobsapalooza", eh? Oh well, too late now.

4) Tomorrow my goal in life is to be able to utter the phrase "I can't believe I slept until noon." ST is going to Gettysburg, I am settling in for a long day of fucking off.

5) Once upon a time there were two fairy godparents. They were kind and generous and sweet of spirit. They looked around them and saw one who was suffering. We'd like to say that she was suffering valiantly, but the reality is that she was a bit whiny about it but trying to be brave. The fairy godparents said "Now this is silly. We have the means to end this suffering, at least temporarily, and then the whining will stop and there will be peace." They were selfless, they were trusting, they were angels walking among men. lalartu and cussata loaned me C's car so that, at least until Pennsic, I could drive something with a/c in it. I love my car and I haven't had a problem with the no a/c thing for years. But this year? People, I cried so hard the first time it cranked up and started blowing on my feet. I don't dread driving places. In fact, I'm a little in love with this car. It's peppy, it's fun, it's cute, and I think it's what I'll get when mine finally goes tits up. You guys, there aren't thanks enough.

Oh, Melly, I am so, so glad about that a/c car. I send bouquets in their direction and yours. I hope you sleep and sleep and sleep and get to enjoy your nest a bit this weekend.

My mother was consoling me the other night by reminding me that she's an August baby too and they were living in Orlando when she was born. Without a/c. I'd have shot myself in the head, Kilties. I would have.

My mother had Collette in September and promptly took her infant self TO SWELTERY STICKY PANAMA. Because who needs autumn, really? In her infant passport photo, Collette already has the OH GOD NO, NOT THE SUN look on her face. It's never gone away, really.

A kiddie pool full of ice cubes is what's required here, I think.

Yes, you have hit that point. The evil point. I can say that I understand and feel your pain and am so sorry you are going through this. AC is your friend. Also the cool showers they are very nice. I used to take one before going to bed every night. oooh the cool showers.

One night, when I was living at the in-laws and the AC was out and it was humid and 90 degrees I woke up at 3am and got hysterical because I just couldn't get cool. OMG it was the worst feeling ever. Literally I went outside in my nightie and sobbed and woke up the whole house I was so miserable.

What I can tell you, is that the AC is your best friend right now, and that eventually, THIS WILL END. It will. I promise it will end.

I love you. Feel free to call and bitch if you need to. I've been there, and while I can't haul you out, I can listen and empathize and reassure you that it will end.

Love the mellies.

Thanks for the garb tips. I'm going to chain myself to my sewing machine this weekend.

Good lord, woman - I can't imagine driving pregnant without air conditioning. When I was in my last couple months, it was the middle of winter and I was opening the windows and walking around without a coat. I'm so glad you've found some comfort. Hope you're well. Posting my boobie icon in your honor.

Whee! Boobies!

I have to surrender the car on the 25th I think so I'm enjoying it in the mean time. Sometimes I let the a/c make me all cold. Why? Because I CAN! :D

I'm doing quite well actually. I think over the course of the weekend I slept for 36 hours or something. It's a shame I can't bank this stuff for later. We also made more meals to freeze, I did some putzy stuff around the house and I spent hours just reading with my feet up. Divine.

Tonight we're off to see that Potter kid's movie. How was it?

first off, you aren't "a" clever geek, you are "THE" clever geek. :D
Second, I find "Boobsapalooza" a very nice way to put it, it could be "The Fun Bag Fair" "Hooterstravaganza" or "A Titmizfa".. ya know, something else classy
And Third, it also amazes me what wonderful friends/family we have, we all love you so much doll
