  • I read a lot, and I have a lot of opinions, so I can't believe I haven't made a list like this before. If you are even a little bit like me or you want to get a peek into my psyche (you probs don't), these are the books to read.


Hot child in the city

Posted on June 5th, 2010 by annakjarzab

DUDES. It is SO HOT IN MY APARTMENT. Because I’m poor and I live in New York, my roommate and I have an apartment that has no cross breezes (because all the windows are on one side) and no air conditioning. So as soon as the temps started climbing into the eighties, we broke out the fans and I’m now sitting in front of my computer with two trained right on me so that I don’t melt while I’m typing this.

I look ridiculous, too. I’m wearing a white camisole and this pair of giant man sweatpants I picked up at Target last weekend because I’d forgotten pajamas when I went to Long Island. They are the most comfortable things I’ve ever warn, and I have to be told that no, Anna, you cannot wear them out to dinner or to the movies or to work. I did wear them to the grocery store, but I checked with my roommate first before I left the house, just to make sure. “It’s hot, people get it, right?” I asked. She just laughed and laughed and laughed at me.

Otherwise I will default to never taking them off, ever. But they’re really too warm for this weather. So I now have them rolled up to above my knees. I’ve been walking around cleaning my room because I’m expecting an impromptu visitor, which also requires laundry, which requires me to walk through the living room where my roommate has been reclining on the couch for several hours watching Step Up and fanning herself. She took one look at me and died laughing. She’s dead now. The funeral is on Monday. Psych! She didn’t die, but she did laugh, for a long time. These pants are making me a joke in my own home! Although, they’re still comfy.

What else am I doing besides laundry and getting mocked by my roommate? Watching BSG (OF COURSE), and writing! With Untitled Book 2 off my plate for at least the next couple of days, I have turned to Book 3. I spent yesterday rereading what I’ve already written, and I kept thinking, “This is so good!” It’s nice to have that feeling after, um, not having it for five months (almost six!). Today I started writing more of it. I’m not rushing it, I’m just writing what I want as much as I want to. I’m loving this book so far–whether others will love it, well, that’s for me to find out later.

I hate hot. Unless I’m at the pool.

Giant man sweatpants are the best, and as a home office person, I have to remind myself that really, I should change out of them occasionally… I’m hoping that reminding myself of this fact is enough for now… I’ll change eventually…. eventually.
