RTT: Summer Again?

They’re Random! They’re Thoughts! It’s Thursday!DSFRTT Froggie

This week: Summer Again?

  • This Memorial Day weekend marks the unofficial start of the summer season.
  • Or as I like to call it The Beginning of Hibernation.
  • I am nocturnal and like it cold, so having the sun shine for 16 hours a day and the external heat on high for three months (at least) — not my cup of tea.
  • I’ll go out if by going out you mean from one air conditioned location to another.
  • I’ll still drink tea, but only iced.
  • One thing I won’t do in the summer that normal people do: go to the beach.
  • Though I love the beach, I’m opposed to any location with several thousand people there at one time.
  • I won’t spend time in the woods either — though they love me, I’m also opposed to bugs.
  • Memorial Day/Summer gets me a three-day weekend, though, so I’ll stop complaining now.

  • Another plus: if everyone flees to the beach the way they always do, I’ll have the whole town to myself. *rubs hands together a la Snidely Whiplash*.
  • On the holiday weekend agenda:
    • Writing
    • Reading
    • Nothing-ing.
    • Wishing you a happy holiday! Or if you’re not in America, Happy Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday!

(This shall be a third Thursday staple).

  • Dear Library:

I’m sorry I’ve had the books due today for 6 weeks and have only partly read one. My to-be-read stack is soooo big! I will get to them. If there aren’t holds, why can’t I renew indefinitely? Please?


She who will pay the fine and return the one book a day late after speed reading it today


  • Dear Netflix:

I haven’t watched the latest DVD you sent yet, but I will, and will return it before the upcoming date my next month begins. Gotta get my 2 movies for $4.99 money’s worth.

Cinematically yours,

She who watches movies every blue moon


  • Dear Universe:

You know at this point that I notice weird things. Every now and then this week, I still try to figure out the meaning of, on Sunday, having two young women named Ashley wait on me at the two different locations I visited that day.


The woman who also can’t stop singing “He… likes girls…. with names… like Ashley…”


  • Dear People Who Don’t Speak Movie:

That last signature references a movie. Anybody know which one?


The woman who’s faux movie boyfriend used to be John Cusack (HINT!)


  • Dear Free Time:

I haven’t forgotten you. Don’t you… forget about me. After this week, you and I will become best buds again. Just needed to do some things and after Friday, I’ll be back to a more regular schedule. I miss you!

With love,

She who’s working for the weekend this week in particular as she fulfills the needs of three gigs


  • Dear Bed:

You. Me. An extra long visit. Can’t wait.

Anticipationally yours,

Sleepy Me
