Drat. The nights are terribly short now, and I shorten them further by unintentionally napping away big chunks of them. I end up seeing too much morning, and being chuckled at by woodpeckers. It's only in the last couple of years that I've begun taking unintentional naps. They are happening more often all the time.

There's a new tiny spider on my wall. It looks as though it's going to take up residence near the same spot the other tiny spider lived last summer. It might catch some of the gnats who've been buzzing my lamp, and another one of which just drowned itself in my water glass. A lot of them do that. They might as well feed a spider as commit suicide and thereby inconvenience me by forcing me to remove their tiny cadavers before I can take a drink.

The heat has not entirely left the house. This is the first morning of the year on which I've had that sunburned feeling I get when the room is too hot. It's going to be difficult to get to sleep, especially as the edge has been taken off by the nap.

Other people have real problems. I have discomforts and inconveniences. So, I'm lucky to have no life. Having thus cheated fate so far, I'm probably doomed to suffer its vengeance. Maybe my somewhat fevered state is a symptom of West Nile Virus? I do have a recent mosquito bite. Ever the optimist, huh?
