There are people that revel in the summer heat... I am not one of them. This Memphis helter-swelter has been dragging me down. Our air conditioner has just not been able to cope, even when I walk into the house I'm not getting any relief. Last night, I took a cold bath. That's right, as much as I like a hot-boiling bubble bath soak, I reclined back, basking in the chilly water until I felt like my body temperature had significantly reduced.
Also, I don't know if it is partially the heat, but I have just been drained of all energy. I've been Dog Tired... I don't feel like moving. I wake up and just want to lay there, not moving a muscle. But I force myself out of bed and drag my 'zombified' ass through the house, searching for clothes to wear, and knowing I'm going to sweat to death and smell like a swamp by the time I get home. I can't take it anymore. I am so ready for fall.
Mr. J says I have been "extra-cranky" and irritable the last few days. He thinks I'm a lazy whiner. I don't mean to be, but I'm just miserable and tired, and hoping that it isn't a symptom of something worse... So you guys help me out here, is it hot in here or is it just me??
Shiny Happy People
Shiny Happy People is a song by R.E.M.. It takes me back to the early 1990s, and some very cool memories. Not my favorite song in the world, but the sentimentality of the feelings I guess, although I do like R.E.M. pretty well. I never did like the "Man on the Moon" stuff though, I don't like the movie, and I don't like Jim Carey's work much anymore. He's gotten far too morose. Not that I mind "morose", I just don't think Jim Carey should be doing those roles. He's never been one of my favorite actors anyway. At any rate, just sharing... have a great evening.
