Let me preface this by saying, I am NOT an air conditioning sorta girl. If I was the only one who lived in this house it would probably never get used. Artificial, cold,  recirculated air when it’s beautiful and sunny outside…yuck. No thanks. But today when I walked into the house I was rather appreciative that my BF cranked up the cold when I wasn’t looking (this happens all day long…he gets hot and turns it down, I get cold and turn it up. Repeat, repeat).

Here’s the thing. His car was leaking radiator fluid and has been at the mechanic for the last few days, so I’ve been driving him to work. Wouldn’t you know it, yesterday as I’m getting off the highway, my car overheats and dies at the light. Luckily we were able to restart and pull over into an office parking lot, and one of his friends was awesome enough to come to the rescue with engine coolant. Even after the refill though, I had to blast the heat at full strength or the car started overheating again. We’re pretty sure the fan died, and we can’t get it looked at until Monday. Fun, fun, right? After driving back in 85 degree weather wearing flip flops and scalding air blasting through the vents I’m pretty sure I have burns on my feet. And this is coming from the girl with a crazy-high tolerance for heat. People tease me that I’m part lizard.

In other news, I made the drawing above a couple of days ago. I rather like it. The original drawing is pretty big, and a lot of the details get lost in the picture above, so I included a couple of detail shots below. I would love to blow it up big and cover an entire wall.

So that’s my life lately. How’s yours?
