  • Mood:
The heavy, humid air the last few days has been like a magnifying glass for my nose. I'm normally reasonably aware of scents around me, but this is ridiculous. I feel like I could navigate the my neighborhood by scent alone.

Last night was the last session of my summer class. I think I mentioned in an earlier post that I'm not taking the second summer class, so I just have to write a paper and then I'm done, at least for now. This is very exciting! I also developed a sudden, brief crush on my professor when he put on background music for his closing remarks. Made of awesome.

For no reason that I can identify, I'm not sleeping late these days, despite being reallyreally tired a lot of the time. This morning, I woke up at 6, ridiculously, and couldn't fall back asleep. What gives, dear body??

I, like any good yuppy (or gruppy? green urban professional?), love my SIGG bottle, but in the summer, when I want iced beverages, I'm frustrated by the narrow mouth. And, in the winter, I can't fill it with hot beverages without burning my fingers. Cue the good old fashioned thermos! I mean, I know it doesn't have the cache of a SIGG bottle, but the designs are tried and true, right? I don't know why I didn't think of this ages ago. Idiotically, it took my seeing a SIGG thermos -- for $40 -- to realize, hey, I bet someone else makes a cute thermos for less. And, indeed, they do.
