熱中症気味

まだPC部屋のクーラーが壊れたままなので、暑くて何もやる気がしない。それでも、何やかやの更新はせねばならず・・・かといって、それが何かの得になるわけでもなし。全く、何をやっているのだろう?と疑問。

こんなことをしている間に、あんなこと、そんなことをやったほうが、よほど自分のためにはなるだろうに。でもサイトの更新って、今や日常生活の一部になっているので、突然やめるってわけにもいかないのが困りもの。ていうか、やめても誰も困りゃしないってことはわかってはいるんだけど。。。(汗

ああ、それにしても暑い!今日の室温は32度ですからぁ~!もう熱中症だ。ウォーキングをして体が燃焼しているところに、夕食にお酒というガソリンを入れてしまったので、余計に暑い。明日はクーラーを買いに行く。なんで今日じゃなかったのかな?早く買いに行けばよかったのにとも思うが。夏バテには憧れているのだが、その前に熱中症には耐えられないなあ。

というわけで、もうやってられないので以上終わり!

From Publishers Weekly
Thirty-something Aletta Honor, the protagonist of screenwriter Dunbar's quirky debut novel, is so pregnant she can't fit behind the wheel of her borrowed pick-up truck, and her husband, a drunk, cheating former high school basketball hero, Jimmy Honor, has left her and their three children. Stuck high and dry in Okay County on the Oklahoma plains in 1976 with a stack of bills piling up and no financial windfall on the horizon, Aletta resorts to peddling burnt, homemade kolaches (fruit-topped pastries) and powder-mix lemonade at the Okay Czech Festival parade. This fails, but when she inadvertently saves a woman's life through a psychic vision, Aletta reluctantly reconsiders using the gift of prescience that she first discovered at age eight to save her and her children from destitution. But her unwieldy supernatural powers often seems more of a curse, and she is never quite sure what someone's passing touch might reveal ("She didn't have any control over what came through. All she did was report it"). Her forecasts of future contentment or visions of painful past events unsettle Okay's upstanding citizens and earn her epithets like "Indian witch" and "psychic sorcerer." As Aletta embarks on her new career as a psychic reader, she's ostracized by Bible-thumping neighbors and forced to confront her mother's shame and an indirectly related family tragedy. Dunbar's no-frills writing style, engaging pacing and cast of kooky saints and sinners make Aletta's unconventional story about taking control of her life a pleasant, all-too-rapid read.
