Define "a Life"...

... still searching for a clear definition of that thing people keep telling me I need to get...

This post was supposed to be titled 100000, dead on even, to reflect the recent turnover of my Ford Ranger’s odometer to… well, you can figure it out.

Of course, that was more than a week ago. Obviously, I didn’t get around to the post very quickly. I’m not getting around to much of anything very quickly these days.

On a note that has almost nothing to do with my Ford's tipping the 100000 mile, I hate hot weather. The temperature's been tipping the 90 degree mark the past couple of days, and I feel rotten. No way around it, I hate the heat. I'm a through-and-through mammal and I like the ambient temperature well below my natural body temperature (which, incidentally, runs a little cooler than is generally considered normal for my species). The airconditioning at work, although inarguably preferably to the heat and humidity, has that problem of feeling somehow fake or unnatural. (Yes, I know -- it IS unnatural.) I just have not felt comfortable at all in the past few days.

What little does this have to do with my Ford? The airconditioning in the truck is, I discovered when the heat hit, busted. The expense is bad enough, but I don't even know when I'll have time to take it in to get it looked at.

Bleh! :-P

Definitley feeling sorry for you there, buddy. The 1985 Jeep Cherokee I drive for Civil Air Patrol doesn't have A/C at all and man, was I wishing it had it Monday night. Oy!!!

I think this qualifies for "the suckiest suck that ever sucked."

I'm with ya, I don't care for this heat either. My old Benz has AC, but it's now at a point where I have to clamp a hose under the hood in warm weather, and unclamp in cold for heat.

To replace the part is just too expensive, gotta love it.

I'm thankful for real chrome and a car that's built like a tank.

Here's hoping you get it fixed soon, or the heatwave breaks.
