*Crackle* *TSSssssss!*

Stupid heat! We have more than a week ahead of us with temperatures forecast for the high 90s or 100-plus. There might be a brief respite tomorrow of ONLY 96o, but OTOH, I see that the projected temperature a week from now is 107!!! Gads, I hate this climate. :(

It is so hard to bike outside when it's this hot—namely, to be up early enough to get out before it's hopeless. HalfshellHusband manages, but he's an early bird. I'm a night owl, and with being isolated at home I keep drifting toward the sleeping hours of 2am - 10am that I had the second semester of my Freshman year of college (when there were no early classes to drag me out of bed). I keep trying to migrate my bedtime earlier, but end up going to bed really late 2 or 3 nights a week, so it never gets there. When the daytime high is in the upper 90s to low 100s, it's already 86 or so by noon and goes up 4 degrees an hour. I think I've acclimated to being able to finish a ride at about 90o at the hottest, which isn't impressive. We've taken to opening up the garage door early in the morning to let the cool air in, and then shutting it up so it takes longer to heat up. That gives me more flexibility for biking in the garage at least. \o?

In other news, thanks to everyone who voted for me in Idol this week! I have another story due Monday night, which is a quick turnaround. No idea what to write yet. :O

Did anyone try out that music link I posted yesterday? It was for youtube—I tried linking to Spotify, but when I tested it, there was some weirdness with wanting a sign-in and other annoying stuff, so nope. I tried out the American Gods playlist on Spotify yesterday, but mistakenly clicked something that caused it to sort alphabetically by title. And then I could not get it back to sorting in order of when the music appeared in the series. I tried leaving and re-adding the playlist, but that didn't work. :(

Now if I could just get it to stop auto-launching songs on my phone why I click "Open in Spotify." I just want it to ID the song, so I can add it to my ListenLater list and see if I actually like it. Not start playing it while hiding the pause button, so that I flail with the phone like a n00b trying to find a way to mute it! :O
