My summer has a shape.

For a while there it was just floating out there in the ether. I knew it consisted of Phoenix and New York, but I wasn't quite sure in what amounts. Now I know. Here she is:

May 15th-June 13th- Phoenix. Enjoying the rapturous concept that is a pantry, as well as my family. Drinking to excess/smoking to stupidity with the condofolk. Hopefully doing something improv-related with MP kids. Listening to classic rock on the truck radio with my arm out the window. Finding some way to pay for gas. Watching TV. Reading. Maxin'. Relaxin'. Raisin' hell.

June 13th - School- NYC. Meeting my summer roommate (mates?). Continuing to babysit, getting a day job (Starbucks?) Hopefully starting Level 2 at UCB if I have the money to register right when I get back, if not, working for a couple of weeks at said theoretical job THEN registering. Basking in the irony that I was actually cooler more hours out of the day back in Phoenix, as my housing won't have any air conditioning (same building I'm living in now.) Hopefully slipping back into the Hammerkatz run at UCB, if, comedy gods willing, we get extended that long. Hanging out with likely temporary New Yorkers Alison and Chelsea. Adding -ing to the end of verbs, after remembering how much fun it was back in April.

Not bad, all in all. Not having air conditioning in the supposedly sweltering New York summer is going to be...uhm...interesting. If anything, it'll be a good reason to get me out of the house.

I just made popcorn and a workable portion of it isn't scorched. God bless America.

I just offered Ryan the roommate some. This makes sense; as eating popcorn is an activity which is not slumping in a chair he stole from the study lounge playing NCAA Football 2004 on PS 2, one can see why he would be hesisitant to undertake it.

Life is full of teases, and the worst of them is spring. Like, the season. Spring Break was sopping wet, which made it hard to drink straight from a bottle of mid-range tequila by a bonfire on the beach and simultaneously score with three sorority sisters named Nicole (though, in fairness, not impossible.) Then it was INSANELY nice for three to four days. Fifties and sixties nice. Uncomfortable inside because heaters still weren't turned off nice. NICE. And though we'd already had one False Spring, everybody, even people who've done this Winter shit before, figured this was the real deal.

We are idiots.

The worst thing about these few-day periods of deceitfully nice weather are the way, for a few days afterward, they leave you wearing a little less in the way of warm clothing than you would under normal circumstances. Combine this with contrast, and the cold seems a little colder. Nature punishes you for your optimism/naivete. Nature reminds you who's boss. Your little brother and grandma who are in town from Arizona remind you that it's ninety back where you used to live.

And while ninety's a little hot, at least it has the common deceny to STAY ninety. Hell, it gets hotter.

'Course, if it were nice here year round, it would be perfect, and perfection wouldn't be very interesting, would it?

(Another window open on DC's computer: The Weather Channel forecast for zip code 10003, full of highs in the low low fifties and little icons of clouds dropping cold rain and in one bracket, the words "AM Snow Showers")

Y'know what? Fuck interesting.

Very useful article. Myself & my neighbor were preparing to do some research about that. We got a good book on that matter from our local library and most books were not as descriptive as your information. I am very glad to see such information which I was searching for a long time.

@Markus I get your drift on where you were going there. I often think of my past and use it as a means to analyze where I am and where I want to get to. Where I struggel is balancing it all out. How do you guys balance things out?
