"An industrial capitalist society that does not recognize ecological limits but only perpetual economic expansion and has the profit motive as driver, will eventually consume and destroy itself."

A: K-S and I don't have an air conditioner and despite my horrible whining about the heat we probably won't ever get around to buying one this year. So the heat has been really a problem. Monday morning I wok up at 3am and couldn't get back to sleep until 4am because I felt like I couldn't breathe because of the humidity. I'm actually not sure how I ever did fall back asleep. I considered taking the 300 train and just getting to work ridiculously early.
But I've come up with a great new solution that I'd like to share with you. It's called "taking narcotics." See, I tried to avoid using my prescription because it made me really dizzy and drowsy, and cumulatively so throughout the day so by the evening I could barely stand up. Now I have a bunch left over, and that drowsiness side effect is just what I need! Plus, the narcotic effect slows down my breathing, so the "so humid I can't breathe" feeling doesn't bother me. I only take one a night and I've got a few dozen left, so through the power of modern medicine, I should be able to get through the rest of the summer without air conditioning.
Ooh here comes that drowsiness. Time to lay down now...
