Monday Miscellany

We got our new A/C on Friday night! It's 12000 BTU. I'm in love.

The Troll & I start our diet today (South Beach). Of course, once we get to phase 2 & 3, I'll have to make some minor, celiac-oriented adjustments, but it meshes quite well with Troll's ADD diet.

If you like artsy martial arts movies (a la Crouching Tiger), you should see The House of Flying Daggers. Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. Lyric, even. Plus, tragic!

It's heinously hot here, and will be for at least the next week. And there are storm systems in the area (actually have been for the past TWO weeks, which explains a lot about my absence of entries...the migraines are coming hard & fast). So I don't stir outside unless necessary, I don't look at the computer much (eyestrain can trigger one), I don't look at politics (so can tension), and overall I'm less coherent & able to maintain communications well. Ugh. Looks like the summer will be filled with it. I can hardly wait to move to the cool, damp northwest.

Critters: Pan has a confirmed but non-dangerous hernia, Jeebee has gingivitis (and antibiotics) and Clump now has the cold that Jeebee had last week.

Work should be tolerably boring today, and possibly all week. I'm taking a book.

Edit: Can anyone tell me the TV show (a cartoon, I think) that had a character named Savoir Faire? Who ran around saying "Savoir Fair is EVERYwhere!"? And did he ever sing a little ditty including his quote to the tune of O Tannenbaum?
