Oh my god. It's like a million degrees out and someone somewhere in the neighborhood is mowing the lawn. At least I think that's what that sound is, though there isn't a whole lot of lawn to mow in this neighborhood. Maybe someone's finally attending to the grass outside the school across the street.

Anyway, my point is: It is a million degrees. Why would someone do that? Because in an hour it will be two million degrees? Okay, but in the evening it will probably only be half a million degrees. What is so urgent about mowing a lawn that it can't wait until you're less likely to get heatstroke doing it?

(As I type, the sound has ended, so it probably wasn't that, but I need an excuse to post, dammit. Maybe it was just a really small lawn.)

The first thing I did today was crawl into the bathroom for a cold shower. I don't think I've ever done that before in my life. The heat: I do not handle it well. At least I'm not living in any of the places where it's worse.

Hey, guess what? I finally got around to figuring out how to use the webcam on my computer! Yeah, I knew it was there, and that there was doubtless some extremely easy way of using it, but I couldn't be bothered. But today I was, and entirely by happenstance, I got one of my favorite pictures of me to exist in a long while.

Not to hype it up too much or anything, but I managed to duck the washout of the flash AND not appear too shiny despite today's heat. This is worth noting. )

My wall is not actually that shade of green.

It's turquoise. I bet you're jealous now.

I am also excited that I can finally take pictures of myself like everyone else on the Internet. Not excited enough to have made an effort to be able to do it before now, but it crops up more than you'd think.
