No Air, No Blog (Plus Another Get-Together)

My air-conditioning suddenly stopped working yesterday afternoon--the unit still appears to be running, but no air is coming through any vents--so I've spent the past 12 hours or so sitting in an 80-degree house. Between that and the Twins' ugly loss to the Blue Jays, I'm far too sweaty and annoyed to blog, although I was tempted to shoot some video of what the scene at my new house looks like right now. It's really quite pathetic, but probably best left to the imagination (plus, I had to conserve my energy).

In addition to me sweating like Albert Brooks in Broadcast News while sitting on (and sticking to) new leather furniture, there are a dozen half-empty bottles of water strewn every few feet and the constant hum of a cheap oscillating fan provides just enough breeze to remind me how miserable I am every four seconds. Oh, and I busted out in 53rd place in a 1,000-person poker tournament when ace-king didn't improve against a pair of 10s, so I narrowly missed making several thousand dollars too.

Now if you'll excuse me, I have to go sweat myself to sleep (or death, either works at this point).

The boys from Nick & Nick's Twins Blog have planned a "get-together" to watch Saturday afternoon's game against the Tigers. I'll be there, along with Nick Nelson, Nick Mosvick, and what is likely to be several other Twins bloggers (if you fit that description and plan to come, let me know and I'll add your name to the list). The first blogger-sponsored get-together of the season was a lot of fun, so if you're interested in attending No. 2--I'm told there will be air-conditioning!--here are the details:

Who: Gleeman, Nelson, Mosvick, and various other bloggers, blog readers, and Twins fans.

What: Eat, drink, be merry, watch baseball.

Where: Park Tavern in St. Louis Park (3401 Louisiana Avenue South, to be exact).

When: Saturday, June 30, at 2:30 p.m.
