Open Thread – 1/11/2010

Yesterday’s religious experience was dismal.  I was wrong about both games.  Last night, after I had been asleep less than an hour, the furnace in my building stuck in the on position.  The radiator kept pumping out heat, and the temperature in my tiny apartment rose to over 90.  As a result, I got no sleep.  I tried to do my research, but could not focus.  Normally, I’d just sleep and post late.  But today I have to go to the X-Ray lab, get some pulmonary function test, and see a specialist.  I’ll be gone much of the day.  So today, there is just this and one article.  I’ll do better tomorrow.

Today’s Jug Zone puzzle took me 4:45.  To do it, Click Here.  How did you do?

Here’s your cartoon:

Well, at least it didn't get stuck off and you froze to death! I can't sleep when I'm hot either. The hubby and kids can sleep through a nuclear device being detonated next to their heads.

Yes, happy at least you didn't freeze, but I understand your frustration! Great comic.

I am slipping bad. 5:03 on the puzzle.

I hope that you studied for the tests today.

Lisa and Gwen, that was last year. Portland has had one week in the last 30 years in which the temperature never got up to 20. Five days of it, we had no heat. It was so bad, it was even on TV.

Otis, I did, but I still dang near passed out during the pulmonary function test.

Hang in there Mark!
