Backwards Cats

Attempting to cheer myself up by listening to The Budos Band and dancing (wiggling) in my chair at work. Safely within the confines of our air-conditioned workplace. Outside there would be no such dancing in this heat and humidity. Nearly need gills to breathe outside. It feels like standing in the mouth of some massive warm-blooded beast. Yes, we are in the thick of my least favorite Minnesotan weather…and we have nowhere to run to. But there are the usual distractions. Last night it was in the form of a 1+ hour long phone call to Qwest to reconfigure my randomly rogue modem, followed by an evening spent camped out in my bedroom with the one working window a/c unit. My son slept on the floor in his sleeping bag. The boy has been enjoying summertime slumber party mode and that is a-ok.

Today’s five good things:

Today’s escape from the heat will involve leaving my office’s central air to get into the car’s a/c to chillaxing in movie theater a/c. Finally going to see the much discussed sci-fi thriller Inception, from Chris Nolan. Maybe it will inspire some dream incubation and lucid dreaming in which I can convince myself I’m really enveloped in perfect Fall-like sweater weather. If only. All right, enough with the whining. Fyi…I made a non-whiny post to my other blog this morning.

    Seems like we had a momentary respite but the mucky yuck is back. Sigh.

    In the 1970s, Mattel sold a doll called “Growing Up Skipper.” Her breasts grew when her arm was turned.

    What the hell?! Well those were some interesting facts.

    I love your flickr gallery. There’s so much inspiration online, it depresses me and makes me feel so insignificant. Yet it’s all so incredible and uplifting at the same time! It’s a thin line.
