Well I’m awake though not necessarily bright eyed or bushy tailed. Still I’m up and, unlike the previous time I did a Blogathon, I was smart enough to give myself time to take a shower before sitting down and turning on the PC. I’ve got jean shorts and my Big Dog “Do I look like a freakin’ people person?” Hawaiian shirt on and I’m down in the SEB Batcave where I’ve already taken my first crappy webcam pic.
Not bad considering the only light is coming from the monitor. How would you like to wake up to that mug every morning? Note the tasteful tapestry I’ve draped over some of the boxes in the background that make up the Batcave. Most of the rest of the family is still asleep so I’m trying to keep a low profile. Once coffee is done upstairs I may sneak up there for a bit with the wireless laptop, but for now Melvin The Official SEB Cat has joined me downstairs having picked out a spot on the highest of the stacked boxes just out of the frame.
Update: Looking at the weather forecast it appears they’re predicting 93° temps and occasional thunderstorms. No air conditioning means I’ll be spending most of the day in the basement where it’s much cooler to that’s one problem solved, but the thunderstorms could be a pain if they’re even semi-serious because it doesn’t take much more than someone sneezing the wrong way to knock out the power out here in the country. With any luck it won’t be a problem, but I thought I should mention the possibility on the off-chance it does happen.
