Long Story

But the short version is this:

Drew has decided that the Saga of the Air Conditioner should actually be named after Star Wars.

Air Conditioner: A New Hope
The Air Conditioner Strikes Back
Return of the Air Conditioner

Yes, we are on the third AC today. And no, it also is not functional. It's completely bashed in the back. It looks like it fell off the back of a truck and was assaulted by a team of angry Little Leaguers. It's so bad that we don't even dare plug it in to see if it works; it truly looks like it might burst into flames if we did. So it's sitting on my bed in pieces.

Yes, we'll be going back to Sears tomorrow. No, it won't be a pleasant experience. For anyone.

Air Conditioner: The Phantom Menace

This is what my summer vacation has been reduced to. At some point I will write out the whole story, but right now I just don't have the energy.

Guess what?

According to Drew, the AC is still not blowing cold air. Sears is sending a repair technician to my house.

Next Friday.

At this rate I'm figuring it will start working just around the time it cools down. October, maybe.

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls...as of 2PM PDT, we have achieved air conditioning!

Drew isn't entirely sure it's working properly (do AC units need to "warm up", so to speak?), but it is installed in the wall and is not a lemur.

He has informed me that I owe him. A lot.

Oh give me a home where the chilled air does blow,
And the cats do not pant on the floor,
Where seldom is heard an obscene curse word,
As the heat wafts in the front door...




I am beginning to think I am not meant to have a functional air conditioner.

After finally convincing P. of the necessity of having air conditioning; ascertaining that there is only one exterior wall where AC can be installed; ordering the unit; working out a schedule for repayment from P. and C.; scheduling an appointment for installation; rescheduling the appointment when the unit wasn't delivered in time for the first one; debating with P. about the aesthetic placement of the unit; finally reaching agreement on placement; rearranging the furniture to accommodate said placement; and asking Drew if he'd be willing to camp out at my place on installation day since I would be out of state, you would think that I would have a nicely cooled apartment right now. We've earned it, right?

Apparently no. Apparently I've offended the God of Cooling or the Goddess of All Things Chilled.

A story that will be funny someday—ah hell, it's probably funny to anyone not involved now—behind the cut. For the sake of clarity, all times listed are Pacific.

And who knows? Drew may eventually be willing to sleep with me again. Someday. If I'm lucky and the lemur doesn't bite him when they shove it into the hole in the wall and try to make it cool the house.
