Hey Night, I'm the same. Just putting a second pot of coffee on, and turned the air conditioning down, to try and wake up.
How is it possible to be shivery and jittery, yet still half asleep?
I resemble a Chihuahua at the moment, hehe.

Hahahahaha! Those Chihuahua's sure are jittery little buggers.

Gah...Still can't wake up and I have pills to take. I'll probably end up napping. LOL

I always wanted a Chihuahua, and I want to name him Spike.


Ugh, I feel like napping too, but I committed to help a neighbour pack this afternoon. Seriously don't want her to find me asleep under a box somewhere.

Instead of logging off, I'm trying to get myself ready and still post here, lol. Kinda running back and forth...brush teeth, check replies...pour coffee, check replies....pick Sophie off the dining table, tell her she can be replaced with a Chihuahua, check replies....

That's funny! SPIKE was one of my nicknames at school!

I was in the School volleyball team and I once knocked an opponent out-cold with my "Spike" shot (like an overhead smash in tennis). It hit them square in the face (by accident) and they just keeled over, I think they were only out for a few seconds, and made a quick and full recovery, but after that everyone called me SPIKE!! LOL

I must confess, that this morning I just did not want to get up. I first awoke to an all pervading sense of stickiness, before collapsing back into slumber. This was at about four AM. A couple of hours later, I awoke to the pleasant sound of a garbage truck unloading an industrial sized container of refuse, into its hollow and empty depths, the cacophony smashing my unconsciousness aside like a train hitting an errant cyclist. No sooner had I come awake, than I realised the sheer level of heat in the room, the tower fan serving only to blow hot air across me as I lay there, gasping for cooler air.

I would like to say that I had been wise enough to store a spatula under my pillow, the better to lever my sweat sodden self from the sheet upon my mattress, however, in this I had been remiss. As it was then, I had to detach myself from the bedding by merely sitting up, and took the sheet, and the cover of my pillow with me. This was of course, more than I was prepared to put up with, and lead me to tear the bedding items from me, and throw them hither and thither, snarling in an animalistic fashion, and swearing occasionally, and with venom, rather than in the usual, enthusiastic fashion which is more common to me.

I proceeded directly to the bathroom, and risked some sort of thermal shock by filling the sink basin with what I thought was cold water, and plunging my skull into it. As it turned out, even the tap water was coming out tepid. Relief only came when I was all but ready to go to work, when I opened up the freezer section of our fridge freezer, and rested my wrists upon a packet of frozen peas! THEN I was ready for the day!

Aww....Spike....uncanny, Gordi!
I used to tell my kids "Spike stories", in a cartoon voice. Spike the Chihuahua, had a speech impediment, lol. They would beg me for more stories.
Now I'm wondering if I should call my Chihuahua....Gordi...?


True...sorry, but now you are Sweetums. It is what it is.
I believe the song lyrics are something like, "Sweetums lay your ugly head...down upon your wretched bed..."
NOT that you have an ugly head! No, more because of your Jim Henson reference earlier...and the last reply of yours which made your bed sound rather...wretched? rofl

HAHAHAHAHAHA!
Sweetums? Who'da thunk it?

Yes, the description I gave did lend my bedding area a bleak, and grimy aspect! It's actually quite nice, memory foam mattress and pillows, metal frame, cotton sheets.... The bed is lovely actually, but the bizarre creature which makes its pit there of a night, that is the cause of its only downfall

Glad I made you laugh!
Don't mind me, I make extremely weird associations in my head sometimes.

Here is Sweetums, in all his glory:

ahh...hahahaha....
He IS a handsome devil, isn't he?

Now, if I start writing some more storyline, and happen to call out for "Sweetums"...you know who I'm calling for, right?

Hmmm....trouble is if I call for "Spike". Who's gonna show up? Gordi, a Chihuahua...or a dragon?

Tsk, I do confuse myself at times.

OMG, you guys crack me up!!!!!!

I'm like you True, hate the heat and humidity with a passion. Good thing I have an air conditioner or I would die. When I am out in the heat too long I go beyond cranky, way beyond. It's like I'm a woman possessed and could kill something or somebody. LOL

I knew those pills would make me lazy. At least my little Cody volunteered to take my trash out. LOL I took some clippings from my plants and put them in a glass to root. Good Lord, some leafy plants were reaching to the floor. They got a haircut. LOL When someone comes over for the first the time they are impressed with all my plants.
I have silk flower arrangements I made as well and they think those are real. Big vases full. Gives a nice nature feel to the home.

Took the turtle out and put him in the caged play pen thingy. He just walked around the inside edge. He had all this area to walk in and he walked in circles. Dumb arse. LOL

I have bought the evaporative air cooler up from the store for the evening. It is currently running with a quarter of a 2kg bag of ice in the water tray, which has given me another couple of degrees of cooling. As we speak it is blasting on full power, from a distance of two feet. Since I am done with work for the day, I am sitting here shirtless, because otherwise I will more than likely die, or go nuts. Or go nuts, then die.

Hi True,
Worse is to come I fear - judging by the weather forecast?

I have a wee suggestion for you if I may?
Have you ever heard of a Bed Cradle Blanket Support?
It's a frame which sits/clips onto your bed and raises the sheets/blankets/quilt OFF of your body, so you are sleeping in a wee tunnel of fresh air. You are still "in bed" and "under the quilt" but none of the bedclothes touch you, so you stay cooler.

I'll try and find you a link...

One On AMAZON here

It's not the exact one I was thinking of, (The one I saw was like a tunnel tent or a row of "D" shaped hoops) but it''ll maybe give you an idea of what I'm on about?

cheers
G

That is very thoughtful of you Gordi!

However, I am somewhat of a paradox. I like a duvet over me when I sleep. It is very much like a very soft hug. Sappy, I know, but I like it. Frankly, its the only sort I will be getting for a while, so I am not very keen on giving that up. A duvet that does not touch ones skin, is pointless.

That said, I have not been wrapped in my duvet the last two nights, because the weather has been so warm that to even have a duvet over me, let alone touching me, would have increased my chances of spontaneous combustion, well beyond the normal percentile for a gentleman of my age and habits.

Furthermore, creating a tent or tunnel out of the duvet, merely creates a situation where heat from the body will build up in the top of the tent, rather than at the top of the room. The top of the tent would be closer to the body, than the top of the room. Therefore, although it may seem a wise idea, I cannot see, from a thermodynamic point of view, how that would ever be beneficial!

For now, I shall rely on the tower fan, and being a grumpy arse!

I'm the only person I know who hates a top sheet. Ever since I was a kid and had this really soft velvet blanket, I told my Mom I just wanted that and no top sheet. To this day I won't use a top sheet, I need to feel the ultra soft blanket on my body.
Well, in the colder months anyway. If I get a little chill from having a fan on all night, I'll just use a throw/lap blanket.

I used to do that in the Army while stationed at FT.Bragg. I feel cheated!

Oh well, that's what you get for not paying attention to what works.

Just had to swing by the Shed to relax after all of today's traumatic events around the world.

But I must be thankful, as my life is still going pretty good so far. I kinda feel guilty about that.

BWA HAHAHAHAHA! Attack of the hairy MOOBS!

So other than the fact that you are feeling guilty about living what amounts to a pretty good life, and rinsing how the hell are you?
