i want to take you through a wasteland i like to call my home

So, when it's 104 degrees outside, and the heat index is like, 115, and you live in a 7th floor apartment with windows facing north and east that got full sunshine all day, and no fan and no air conditioning, well, it's like, impossible to sleep. Were it not for Ellie and her suggestion to take a cold shower last night before bed, I wouldn't have slept at all. I actually went to sleep at about 11 and woke up at 1:30 and took a cold bath, and was able to sleep through until 6.

And it's supposed to be worse today. Gee, I look forward to going home tonight.

And does anyone else think that the fact that my desk at work has all of the A/C in four buildings directed on my head so I freeze all day long is something that will make me sick? The extreme cold to the extreme heat.

Sure it can make you sick especially if you aren't getting a good nights sleep. Can you buy a small fan or something for your room at home? Like a misty fan?

Get yourself a fan, lady! (That is, assuming there are any left for sale anywhere in the city....)

I told someone today at work that there are starving children in Africa that would love to have some of the air conditioning in my office. It's cold enough that I have to wear a sweater, I can feel the drop in temperature as soon as I turn the corner to my new office.

I think it is very hard on a person to shift from one extreme to poor thing.
