Lost

Last week, I went out for a walk (at night) and did a little magick while I was doing it. I only intended to be out for 20 minutes, but I wasn't paying enough attention and ended up getting turned around. I got so badly lost I ended up around 40th and Fremont (I live near 57th). I have no idea how I got that lost, it shouldn't be possible. I mean yes, there was a point at which, for 20 minutes, I couldn't figure out which way was north, but still... it was the first time I can ever remember getting legitimately lost.

Anyway, I finally found the graveyard on Fremont, though I mistook it for the street behind the Albertsons. Albertsons is right next door to my apartment. So you can imagine my confusion when I realized I wasn't where I thought I was. Then I continued not being sure where I was until I got to Fremont and realized I'd gone all the way to 40th and Fremont.

I was so tired I ended up taking the bus home once I got to 57th and Fremont.

Heat

The other day, I had to be outside in 90+ heat. I think it was 99 or close to it. I was out in that shit for hours, and I was with my roomie, who is from The South. I told her I finally understood why southerners spoke in that slow drawl: because the heat makes people slow and makes it hard to think. She basically agreed, saying that everything is done slow in the South because of the heat. And I responded that I find it astonishing that they managed to have any kind of civilization at all down there. If everyone was like me, the South would never have been colonized by anybody ever, it would be wilderness, and everyone would live farther north.

Truly, 90% of the planet is uninhabitable to me. Anything that isn't perfect is either too hot or too cold.

I also commented that I understood why the people of Traipah live mostly underground, because their planet is warmer than Earth. Then I amended the comment with "Well, it was warmer there when I first started writing the story. Not sure if it still would be now because of global warming."

(Traipah doesn't have ice caps. It's cold at the poles, but not too bad. Snow falls at the north pole sometimes but rarely sticks around. The south pole is open ocean.)
