"It's Gettin' Hot in Herre..."  
So, it's been in the 90s all week and guess what decides to happen. That's right, the AC completely shut down. It's been so freakin' miserable since Sunday, and I've been trying to stay out of the house as much as possible.

At first, I thought it might be the filters, so I changed them out. It was still acting wonky, so we turned off the AC and then turned it back on again. That seemed to work, so that's what we've been doing this whole time. It'll switch on for a little bit, long enough to cool down the house, but then it shut off again. Now, the whole flipping the switch thing doesn't work at all. It's soooooooooo hot. 

The landlord is supposed to come by with an AC guy today. Cross your fingers that he can fix it today. I wouldn't be complaining, but we usually keep the house at 70 degrees (I like it cold. We can bundle up that way) and it's about 80 in here right now.

You bundle up when it's 70 degrees? That seems really hot to me.

My body isn't exactly acclimated to cold temperatures. 70 degrees means 3 blankets on my bed at night :)

Hmmm. We keep ours around 17 degrees, which (I just checked) is about 60. I guess it's all about how your body is trained!

So take off all your clothes! You and your roommate could have a naked Wednesday!

Fine, I'll admit it's not one of my better ideas, but it's an idea ll the same.

How awful do you think it would be if I did my Body by Lulu session naked?

It's an elliptical, right? I think you'd be okay. Just... just don't sit on anything until after a shower.

Yeah, that could work...Oh, but then there's absolutely no support for my boobs. I gotta think this one through a bit more.

I always forget about the boobs. Mine aren't usually an issue.

My poor D cups wouldn't be able to take the pressure.

Oh man - I know a comment like that shouldn't trigger a memory, but let me tell you about my freshman year college roommate.

She slept naked, and was totally unashamed about her body. I think she delighted in shocking the rest of us. When she was ready for bed, she would just announce, "it's naked time!" and take her clothes off, then climb into bed. And it really didn't matter who was in the room.

True story.

Ew! No way! I mean, it's cool to be comfortable and all, but wow. Naked time, snort!

Let's hope none of your roommates are like that now. Because that would be just plain awful considering what you've been going through.
