My least favorite day of the week. I did catch a bit of a break tonight. I was allowed to hang out somewhere for well past how long I thought they would let me stay. So that was nice. A much welcomed extra 90 minutes of air conditioning.
The heat has been pretty brutal. But I have figured out a few ways to make it a little more bearable. I have some small face clothes with me. I get them wet and then wrap it around a bag of ice. I put the around my neck so that helps. I can at least fall asleep for a while.
Since I have not been in this situation in the winter I can't say which is worse full summer heat or full winter cold. I would think they both equally as dangerous. I can't imagine I will still be in this situation when the winter comes. But, I will tell you I would welcome an end to this heat wave.
I realized today that I had my soap with me, I thought I had put it in my storage unit. So that was another piece of good news. I don't have spend money on it, and I can get my hands back into shape. They feel like I have little needles sticking in them. I also have all this peeling skin. I never realized my skin was this sensitive. I have never had these issues in the past.
I treated myself to a movie last night. I found a coupon online and only had to pay half price. I went to see Friends with Benefits. I fully expected it not to hold my attention and I would take a nap. It was a funny movie. A lie of a story line that sex and emotion are mutually exclusive of one another. They are not. But it was funny all the same. One of things that I liked about it was how they mocked romantic comedies in the movie. Justin Timberlake is a good actor.
They seem to play movies in this theatre almost all night. So I hung around in there until late. I went into where Bad Teachers was playing. I don't feel bad because I did fall asleep so I didn't watch a movie I didn't pay for. I also think they expect people to do that and that is why they charge so much. A box of Thin Mints was $5. Who would pay that? You can go to the Safeway and get them for $1 sometimes. I didn't have any candy with me, but I did bring in my own drink. They must have a huge profit margin.
I should look that up sometime. If I ever get rich I am going to invest in multiplexes.
In any event, it was nice to feel like a normal human being for a night. I just a girl out to the movies. Granted I was alone, but I have been to movies on my own before. I also got some sleep in a dark cold room for a while too. Bliss.
Have a good night
