Not Only Freaking Hot, but OMG FREAKING HOT

Okay, it seems to me that when I kept raising my debt limits and not increasing my income, I ended up ass-over-ears in really deep shit. Just sayin'.

It's the most wonderful time of the year -- Shark Week!

I can't remember the last time it got this hot in late July/early August. Yes, this is normally our hot/muggy/monsoony time of year, but it's not usually accompanied by the 113+ degree temperatures, which are more normal in the drier weeks of mid-to-late June. I took Bo out for his walk this evening; the sun was already pretty much down and it was so hot I couldn't really give him the kind of walk he should have (about a half-mile or so, rather than a full mile or more) -- at least he, too, is apparently collapsed from heat and isn't agitating for more. There was apparently a rather sizable fire in the condos across the street from us -- at least four or five trucks, the fire chief, and every local news station were all over there.

A strange thing I've noted since starting to go in for the early shift, and that is a surprisingly large number of people who hang out on street corners smoking at 4:30 in the morning.

We're working overtime again, so I put in an hour and a half this afternoon and still made it to the gym. I may have to skip the workout tomorrow, though, 'cause I have some things I need to do I didn't do this weekend.

And while I haven't quite finished Nightwalker, I continue to make progress. Haven't started fixing Ring of Fire, but have started thinking about scenes from the sequel, which has been boiling away in my head for a long while now. (Some of it has been written, but I got stalled with other things.)

Who would have ever guessed we'd actually yearn for the days of Geo. H.W. Bush?

Me, before the weight loss (at around 240, I think):

My trusty cohorts:

I'm not quite as pissed at Obama as some folks are for being a total wuss and caving to the Tea Party, but lord, I ain't happy about it. I really want to know why it is those extremist freaks are running everything these days? (I've just started reading American Eve, which is the story of Evelyn Nesbit -- and the story of the excesses of the turn of the last century--the rich getting richer and the poor getting poorer--and what it eventually led to, hammers home again just how little people learn from history.)
