Hot, hot, hot and did I mention...it's hot

Another day of 90 degree plus temperatures! It's rather mind-numbing. Nothing is worse than trying to go to sleep while it's still daylight outside with a fan blowing hot air on you. All the things that need to get done in the yard that don't because it's unbearably hot. Maybe I'll just stay inside and brew a batch of beer with my Mr. Beer brew set! My last attempt didn't turn out. I think it didn't get warm enough because I brewed it during the winter and I don't believe the brew keg reached or maintained a temperature of at least 70 degrees.

That sounds like a really good project for today! I will have to simultaneously mix up a batch and record the TNT mini-series "Into the West" for my buddy who will be coming by for dinner this week. He's single and doesn't cook so when my wife makes spaghetti with a jar of Prego sauce he thinks he's at a gourmet Italian restaurant. His refrigerator contains at least one of the following at any given time:
  • Pepsi - not diet!
  • Ketchup
  • Taco Bell hot sauce packets
  • Monster energy drinks
  • Budget Gourmet frozen dinners
Quite the culinary delight there!! I'm not sure he even makes toast because that would require using an appliance. I better lay off or he won't come for dinner and he may starve to death because of it.

Time Warp (or at least I would like to blame it on one!)

Amazing how quickly the time flies. My last post was right around the time that we got a new supervisor at our warehouse. I used to have plenty o' time for blogging!! He unfortunately comes in at 5:00am and normally hangs out all morning until I leave for my other job. It kind of puts a damper on my posting frequency. You say to yourself "why don't you blog at home?". To which I would reply, "I don't get paid for blogging off the clock."

Actually it seems as if my free time is spent doing the things around the house that I can't do because I'm working two jobs. My free time is really the time I use to do things that otherwise don't get done.

I have to tip my hat to Joe at Joe's Big Blog for getting me off my duff and posting again. He verbally berated me for being a lousy blogger. At the time I had to agree with him because I WAS/am a lousy blogger!! I hope I've reconciled with this post. There is a certain lack of content to this post, however. I am not exactly sure if I can be credited with an actual "posting" or just a puff piece to satisfy my detractors (read: Joe).

I'm striving to create a substantive post...really...I am!
