It's been a hell of a day! Really and truly... an absolute heatwave... and it's reminded me of the song
as it's about heat. I love how it keeps being remembered by people everywhere (I even sung in quietly while shopping one day last year when I heard it come over the radio at Coles). However today, it was so very hot, I nearly just laid back down in bed and went back to sleep after breakfast to ignore the day. But I didn't.
I jumped on here instead - as usual - and ended up getting off at midday... to get outside. However, it was very hot and so I jumped back on here at around 1pm and the computer quickly overheated! So, I took the side off and angled the tower towards the air-conditioner... however it wasn't doing it any good. The temperature kept going up. So, I turned it off and then took the opportunity and cleaned it out of the dust and crap with cotton buds and a washer sprayed with glasses cleaning fluid (which has alcohol in it; so it dried quickly and yet cleaned well).
While I was waiting for the computer to completely cool off, I worked on a painting for an hour and a half, read some of the stories of 'Brief Interviews With Hideous Men' by David Foster Wallace and began reading 'The Dreaming Void' by Peter F. Hamilton. By around 4pm or so, I wasn't bored, but I was all read out and Mum and Dad had smsed me telling me that they had had a storm down at Brunswick. So, I called Will. We chatted for a good long while... talking about everything from pets, birds, lizards, spiders, parents, books (and he was shocked at how many I have) then we both had to go... it was good to talk to him.I felt as though I didn't get a lot done, but yet I did... seeing it was so hot, I found I was reading a lot; and with the computer out of action for such a large part of the day, I felt kind of useless without it. But I did find that having the time to read was quite refreshing. Well, until my next post, take care, keep warm (or cool) and remember, I'm always here.
