Hot days ahead

My horoscope tells me today: "You are feeling more flexible than ever -- in your mind and in your body! This is a great day to explore a new physical exercise, like pilates or tae kwan do. Or even salsa dancing! Your quick mind will enable you to get the hang of it in no time, and you just might find the next great obsession in your life. Integrating new and different things will be a total snap for you, today, so it's a great first day on the job and a wonderful night for a first date." That's what my horoscope says. I don't think so. Not today. But then, it's early still.

The forecast calls for a string of 90-degree days ahead. High humidity too. Oh joy.

I woke up retching again. Understandable though. I didn't fall asleep until 5 am and woke up at 6 am, for no particular reason. Didn't really need to be up before 7:30 or so this morning. I'm thinking it was a one-off though, rather than a real return of the insomnia.

We had good chat late last night. We got some things out on the table, and I passed along some information that probably would have gnawed at me had I not shared it, for whatever it's worth.

Btw, it hit the news this morning that "grease gangs" are out stealing waste grease from restaurants to convert to bio-fuel on the black market. Wasn't that an episode of the Simpsons?

Hey Rachel,

Yeah, actually, there are no formal credentials to be a Supreme Court Justice, you just need to be nominated by the President and confirmed by the Senate. Hillary could be the first person in history to serve at the top of all 3 braches of government: Legislative: US Senator, Executive: First Lady,
Judicial: Supreme Court Justice.

Wouldn't that be something?

Thanks for stopping by to comment!

I'm so dreading the hot weather. I'm in NY (not sure where you are), but the humidity is the worst!

Are you kidding about these "grease gangs"? OMG... Whoever drives behind one of their vehicles is going to reek of McDonald's fries.

Unreal.

Have a ***cool*** weekend!

Horoscopes are crap. You'd be better off believing in yourself and your inate ability to take care of your own problems.

It's a curiosity - nothing more. I know I AM the only thing I CAN believe in.

And yes (sorry I missed it earlier) the GREASE GANGS items was completely real according to whichever 24-hour news channel I happened to be watching at that moment (I tend to surf among four of the them)
