Trying to stay warm in the 71-degree Mac Lab. Absorbing the heat from the computers.
That's me trying to stay warm. How foolish of me not to think of carrying a jacket around in July, so during my two-hour training I was sporting goosebumps and finally resorted to hugging my computer to share in what little heat it was producing. I bet we could save a pretty nice chunk of cash if we didn't keep the office at 71. I read that each degree below 78 will cost you 3-4%. I keep my house at 78 and I realize some people are just warm blooded and I'm sure being sweaty at the office would be a bad deal, but that's a lot of money we're spending to keep LW chilly. That Mac lab could use a couple of ceiling fans and I'm sure we would all do just fine at 74.
I came home from work and noticed that Miles had puked on one of my rugs. I wish he would start puking in less discreet places; the middle of the kitchen floor would be just fine with me (linoleum = easy clean up). I'm not sure how long this had been there but it was completely dried and I hung it over the fence and sprayed it down with the hose.
We are starting off July well here in Nashville. For lunch I went to the LW plaza and ate with Jennifer H. and several interns. It is currently 83 degrees, 33% humidity and looking at a low of 60 tonight. I am very thankful for and looking forward this three-day weekend. Newfoundland is coming up in a month and I have a lot to get done!
