Cooling Due

The banking transfer is done, and two of three stores have been visited and various comestible items and libations purchased, all this accomplished in spite of the appalling heat. But it is supposed to get much cooler tonight than it has been lately. I've already got the fan on and the windows open, and shouldn't need the air conditioner again until sometime tomorrow afternoon. I hope I can sleep better tonight, as it's been very difficult for the last few nights, and I'm exhausted.

In the last few days I've gotten three phone calls for some guy named Gary. I know he isn't the previous owner of my pone number, as that guy's name was Joe, and I had a few calls for him earlier in the year. But since I've been getting calls for Gary I've had to consider the possibility that I've developed multiple personality disorder, and the reason I don't feel rested when I wake up, and I'm always nodding off during the day, is because I've been out partying all night and just don't remember it. If I'm Gary I must be pretty popular, to be getting so many calls. It would be nice to think that I'm actually out having a good time instead of just moping around this apartment and writing journal entries complaining about the crappy weather.

But I'm probably not Gary. If I had another personality I don't think he would use that name. For one thing, I just don't look like a Gary. I look more like a Zach, which is why when several years ago I started getting emails for a guy named Zach I also had to consider the possibility that I had developed multiple personality disorder. The problem that time was that Zach was a recent high school graduate, and the emails were invitations to apply to various colleges and universities. I reluctantly had to conclude that I was not Zach, since I was much too old to pass for a recent high school graduate. But if I did ever develop multiple personality disorder I'm sure one of them would be a Zach before any of them would be a Gary.

Since I'm probably stuck just being myself for the rest of my life I should make some plans for at least the rest of the week. It's going to be several degrees cooler this week, though still in the nineties every day, and I could probably go out and do something, if I wake up early enough. I'd still like to get down to the library to see if they've got interesting DVDs. Also I'd like to get downtown and check out the CSUC bookstore. I wish I had
Gary's energy.
