well, the heat has finally broken, and i'm flinging windows open wide, gulping in fresh air by the lungfuls, looking for a sweater to wear....my subaru's a/c that went kaput in july can just stay that way now until next summer--july's electric bill will no doubt bring us a kilowatt horror show that will surpass all previous box office records of this new millennium....

Oh yes, the horror of it all!!! Last month's bill nearly sent me into cardiac arrest with being even more than it was last summer. This next billing is bound to rival a significant portion of the national debt!
