Feelin' Hothothot

Fed up to . No, HERE. Or maybe even HERE.

Just spent my afternoon and evening working on a piece about male . I now feel slightly .

Temperature wise, it's also in the high 20s/early 30s *C (80s *F) here and I am and #sticky, melting unpleasantly.

I am very tired because of the heat - even downstairs it is muggily . No : this is summer in the UK.

Some nerk has hijacked the revshare article writing site forums and refused to , rather asking questions that would be completely and easily explained if they did RTFM. I think the founder has ejected them after a run of these inane bleats, as we do pride ourselves on being a small and bunch, with the capability to RTFM. (Bit like here, really!)

I have had a day at work, where one of the was , a had a mad moment and had to be taken to task (not by me) and everything just seemed as if it was taking 10% more effort than usual. Even my data cleansing was laborious.

So, if no one minds, I'll take my half empty glass of room temperature water and go upstairs to see if I can actually get some sleep tonight.

Wish me luck - I am beat!

Ewww, after reading this, I feel all grubby, too. You are a very evocative writer--that can be a dangerous thing, sometimes!

Rest well then. It sounds like you've had a hard day. And, water's healthier at room temperature, anyway.

I think that might have to be taken as a compliment, AliCanary ! Thanks. It's even hotter today but work is airconned to perfection (public buildings are) so coming out into the heat and humidity was like walking into an oven. Apparently there was a thunderstorm last night but although we knew it had rained both my husband and I slept through the flash'n'crash bit of it. I did say I was beat!

Thanks LoudMan . It was a hard day, but I think some of my colleagues had a harder one. Poor ol' newbie was in bits after being taken to task; she's only been in the job two weeks and the manager doing the telling off is very much a people person, so I doubt he enjoyed the experience any more than she did. The water eventually sat all night at room temperature because I was sparko as soon as I hit the bed.

It's always good to have a glass first thing too, as long as no fly landed in it overnight. And, if you don't happen to notice it, that's just extra protein. How can you lose?

I can not figure out what RTFM means. But sounds like (from comments below) that you did sleep after your frustrating day.

RTFM: Read The F*bleep Manual. And yes, I did sleep. Not long enough but it was proper sleep, not dozing.

Thank you for telling me. My husband and his coworkers had a term - FNG Bleep New Guy. I guess it's a common sentiment.
