A few days ago I had a dream. It started out with me arriving a bit late at a con. The con was being held in some hotel that had a bunch of "themed" areas.

Anyway, after spending some time with friends I went to check in (I think I was going let one of there friends share the room). Amazing the line at the desk was short.

Then came the fun. The elevators were somewhat camoflaged, and the other ways of transition between various areas had a lot in common with them park rides.

I was having increasing difficulty trying to find my room. and kept winding up back at places I'd already been. Mind you, this sort of "maze" behavior isn't that uncommon in my dreams. But this time I was getting cranky because I was tired and just wanted to rest.

Finally had a major league meltdown

About then I started coming awake and just before I woke up, I took one last glance at the paper with my room number on it. and proceeded to heap impreciations on my subconscious.

Why? The room was number 404...

I'm working my way thru the stories on the Torn World site, and I'm wondering if the site has had some sort of major problem.

Most of the stories available to non-supporters aren't actually there. Or rather, anywhere from a few lines to a couple of paragraphs are, but then they end in the middle of a sentence. Some don't have anything and show a word count of zero. Heck, one had a word count of -1!!!

I'm also seeing things like part 2 or even 3 of a story and no trace of the previous parts.

Anybody know what's going on?

.. it *burns* us.

Ok, I'm not that opposed to sunshine. Record high temperatures on the other hand.

The official high at the airport (2 miles away) was 98 or 99). My apartment *only* got to 97.

Currently, at 4:30 in the morning, 84 (86 at the computer). It's 78 outside but even with the fans running full blast, it's still 84 in here. Bah.

And today is supposed to get even hotter.

Looked at the website and the portable air conditioner I want is still available. But they'd have to ship it. Free shipping wouldn't get it here until July 7th. I can't afford he 2-day shipping at the moment ($69). But I should get my pension sometime this week, so that'll let me order it and *still* get it quicker than the free shipping by *days*.
