Heat wave in Wisconsin.

Randy and I are two very sad and unfit people. The last two days we’ve walked all over Ashland and today, well, today was just horrible. Both of us took on too much and pretty much died from heat exhaustion trying to get back to campus. I’m so glad I brought a water bottle with, even if it was really hot by the time we started walking back.

I’m in a wicked (hah) mood, so we went to the bookstore and I bought a copy of Wicked by Gregory Maguire, which I’ve been meaning to do for awhile. I love that book, and rivals two books for my favorite book of all time (Peter and Wendy by J.M. Barrie and The Neverending Story by Michael Ende). If you haven’t, read it.

I’ve been listening to a lot of the music from the musical as well. I’ve been feeling wicked.

In other news, I’m knitting and have no clue why. It’s way too hot to be knitting anything. I need to take Emry out, but it’s so hot, I don’t want him to get overheated. He will be coming with me when I go home now, so I’m excited. The plan was for him to stay with Tiff originally, but since I’m staying home longer now, I’m bringing him with.

I cannot Bear this heat. Remind me now to leave food in an open car.

Walking and Hula Hoop Crossings

I feel like Shawn Hunter right now from Boy Meets World when Cory and Topanga were getting married.

Not many people are going to know what I mean when I say that I think. But it’s true.

In other news, went for a much-needed walk with Matt and Randy today and brought back with me some pictures!

Hoola Hoop Crossing

Watch out for those Hoola Hoop crossings. They’ll get ya.

Wishing For Rain & More WoW Time

There will be tons of people showing up in my building in the next few days. I’ll be busy and hiding at the same time, so we’ll see how much WoW I’ll get to play.

There’s a serious problem when I’m up till three trying to level up. Oh woes.

I haven’t gotten a chance to take any pictures lately so my Flickr account is sadly unupdated. Hopefully this weekend I’ll be able to get out and take some pictures of more random things. Went for a walk in the ravine the other day and found the remains of a baby fawn, but I doubt I’ll post a picture of that. It kind of spoiled my outing.

We need rain. Badly. The creek in the ravine is nonexistent; it’s nothing but puddles and dead fish. The grass is dying and all the flowers are already wilting from lack of water. It’s way too hot for anything to thrive. Including humans. I need rain.

I’m gonna play WoW. I lead a sad little life (but at least I can do magic and turn into a bear!)

Introducing: Emry the Frog-Rat!

I haven’t posted any images of the newest member of my life. He’s furry, hops like a frog, and likes to chew things like no one’s business. He’s also smarter than most people I know.

I'm ready for my close up.

Say Hello.

His full name is Myrddin Emrys, but we fondly call him Emry. He’s a fawn hooded-rat and likes to hide in hair.

In other news, I’m still working on the blog. No worries.
