OMG. OMG. OMG. It was so hot on Tuesday. So so so so hot. My office was 90 degrees, and there was no air circulation. Anything that was "cool" in comparison (the bathroom, the stairwell) was covered with a layer of condensation. My building is one of those tall, 70s deals where no windows can be opened, and it was not meant to be inhabited without the HVAC system. The lawyers got sent home Tuesday morning, and the transportation office got moved. I lasted until 1:30pm and gave up and went home to lay on the floor in front of the AC. I had to take a 1/2 day of vacation to do it, but it was totally worth it. I just pretended like I was on vacation at the Sun and had gone back to my hotel room for the afternoon.
Yesterday was MUCH better. I borrowed someone's desk fan to get a little air circulating because I still wasn't getting any actual AC in my room. However, there was AC coming into the rest of the building so it was cooler and smelled less like asbestos and bathroom.
Unfortunately because of the heat, the gym is still closed:
THE SERF AND NIELSEN TENNIS STADIUM WILL BE OPEN THURSDAY, JULY 21. THE SHELL AND NATATORIUM WILL REMAIN CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. GENERAL PUBLIC MEMBERS AT THE SHELL MAY USE THE SERF WHILE THE SHELL IS CLOSED. REC SPORTS REGRETS THE INCONVENIENCE OVER THE PAST SEVERAL DAYS. THANK YOU FOR YOUR UNDERSTANDING AND PATIENCE.
The SERF weight room is closed for maintenance, but I'm hopeful that because the temperature is a bit cooler the rest of the week, they'll open the Nat again in the next couple days.
I saved the best news of the entire day for last. Here's an e-mail from our apartment complex:
Residents of XXX:
Due to the extreme amount of millipedes migrating through your part of the neighborhood, our pest control contrator, Anderson Pest Solutions, will be spraying for millipedes behind your buildings today. They will be spraying the exteriors of the buildings and the stairwells to the basement and some of the vegetation directly behind the buildings.
The product they use does not have an odor and is safe to be used in residential applications. Hopefully this will help control the millipedes so they do not continue to come into the buildings.
Normally I'm anti-killing, but when they write "extreme amount of millipedes", they aren't joking. The whole walk to the laundry room through the basement is "crunch, crunch, crunch" because every step crushes at least 20 of them. Plus they were all over the walls. And the dead ones smell horrible! After three trips down doing laundry on Tuesday, I thought I was going to vomit. So yes, death to millipedes! I only hope that they've contracted someone to get rid of the dead millipedes.
Well, I'm off to run while it still "feels like" it's in the 80s. What's the best news you've heard lately?
