Based on the fact I keep seeing friends posting about their A/C problems, I'm beginning to think there's a conspiracy.  Thank goodness that it's down to 59 degrees Fahrenheit outside so I can have the windows open and run the risk of a home invasion but at least not die of heat while otherwise pretending I'm sleeping. Guess I inquire about getting my A/C fixed tomorrow when I'm also inquiring about just why there's tar paper still hanging just below my kitchen window outside my place.  There was a big to-do Monday morning about needing to immediately get into my kitchen to work on replacing this section of the outer (They were unclear) wall which has apparently being acting as a buffet for termites.  Cause there's rain coming!  So, on Monday there lots of banging noises and the like.  Then, later on Monday, I get a note on my door saying they'll be by on Tuesday at 9AM and coming into the kitchen again to work more.  No show all day.  Needless to say it rained today.  So, I'm really curious if management screwed up or if the workers did.  Most likely a combination of the two.  Ever since the woman who'd been managing my townhouse community for the past near-30 years retired, things have really gone down hill here.  In that sense, I'm very happy to be moving.

Which segues nicely to me trying to escape all the townhouse problems by driving up to Blacksburg for a Home Shopping Trip either today (Wednesday, since I'm a literalist about time) or tomorrow if I can't get any sleep tonight.  Except I still probably get to have fun with A/C since I forgot to get the car's unit recharged yet.  *sigh*  Anyway, with the way I'm feeling about things right now I might have a lease signed by the end of the week.  Heck, tomorrow even!  I also just hate knowing that come the end of June, I will be out on the street, figuratively speaking, unless I get a place RSN.  I actually figure I could find friends or family  to sponge off for a while, but I really need to have a place that's my home.  Kinda like the way most people need to breathe their own lungs to breathe.  Anyway, I hope that my desperation to have a place will not mean that I end up living in some Kafka-esque place where my roommates are giant cockroaches.  Though, admittedly that would be different from the big ants that wander around my current place and scoff at the exterminator.  And, if the A/C works and maintenance doesn't keep needing to come into my place at ridiculous times like before afternoon, it certainly could arguably be a step up for me.  I guess I shall see once I get there.

Anyway, if you live in Blacksburg and I know you, I may see you.  Otherwise, I may not.

Do you think it's reasonable for me to ship something to your current abode considering its impermanence in that status? Or considering you will be moving and more shit is exactly what you DON'T need?

Excellent questions. And me with no sleep and all, so I'm kinda duh-ing at the moment. I didn't make it to Blacksburg today because of the no sleep last night so it's not like I'm moving ahead at top speed on having a new place.

Uhm, ehr... Must think semi-coherently. I can always put whatever you send me in my car, unless it's HUGE. I also have here until the end of the month, so I'll be checking mail at the end of the month anyway even if I've otherwise actually moved elsewhere. If nothing else, I don't have a better address to give and if what you're sending is as helpful as what you already loaned me then I'm all for you sending it here.

Does that make any sense?

Oh, and since I'm still mostly clueless about how LJ works, I assume you were informed of my LJ token of appreciation to you that appears on your Profile page for several more days?

I must go to bed, but in short:

1. I will send tomorrow and likely it will get there in mere days, so yay

2. Yes! Thank you!!!

1. Thank you. I look forward to it.

2. You're welcome. It certainly was easier than some of the other alternatives and definitely would not cause any problems for domestic tranquility. Wouldn't want anyone, like, uhm... my cat, suffering from existential angst or any such thing.
