News Flash: I HATE Being HOT!

I finally made it back to my blog! This is a record for me not yakking it up and not having card making time! Too many end of the school year events to attend! Too many really bad re'sumes to review! Too many panicking seniors looking for jobs!

Six of 'my regular peeps' (students who frequent my office) are coming over for hot dogs and movie night tonight. They are all bringing side dishes and who knows what else. We are going to watch The Bird Cage which none of the students have ever seen. It is a classic in my book!

This should be fun...my family room has no furniture (long story)...(but they're kids...right?...they are used to sharing an 10' x 11' DORM room...PLUS my air conditioning is not working which they are ALSO used to as their dorms are not air conditioned...barbaric isn't it!).

Here is the card I put together over the course of many 10 minute intervals over many days. I just couldn't help myself - I saw her face and this is what popped into my head for a sentiment.

The sentiment is especially perfect considering we are currently without air conditioning the outside temperature peaked at 90 degree fahrenheit and aren't scheduled for a repairman to come until the week of the 23rd.
I need some serious uninterrupted Bubble time - just me, my paper, my Copics, and tape gun...in the MUCH cooler temperature of the basement.

Graduation can't get here soon enough!
