So, here's the situation. It's basically bedtime. Just got home -- desperately need a bath -- really tough boxing class was few hours ago now -- eating cottage cheese because there was only one remaining piece of bread for peanut-butter toast, now consumed, and I could probably use a little more in me, but ... it's bedtime, need a bath, just can't be bothered for something warm, which would be nice. Because, OK, let me tell you, it has been FREEZING in my home as of late! FREEZING! freeeeeeeeeeezing. OK, I'm done emphasizing that, it just happens to be true.

The thing is, springs and falls in my home are chilly (freeeeezing). Winter it's toasty warm with the radiators sizzling, summer it's lovely to have a house that holds chill, but those in-between months ... brrrrr. It's not cold enough to switch the radiator thermostat on, and I have yet to break down and request thermostat lowering from the owner who controls it for all five units (generally, it's warmer than I'd keep it) because let's face it, it is kinda lame.

I can't remember what my point was anymore. I think it was just about warmth. And how as of late, even tho bright & sunshiny out, it's cold, highs in the 50s, and while usually I think that would seem warm after a winter, our winter was so lame, plus we've had these hot blips, so it just feels like it's about time for summertime, thank you very much. I think I've come to realize that spring is my least-favorite season, which really seems crazy. But there you go.

Anyway, point is that warmth and warm things are good right now. Like a bath. Where I'm going. Since the semblance of coherence has dropped away. Because the raditors are on, and that makes me happy. And the gatos, too. The gatos love the radiators. As you know.

Oh! Wait, the title. That was another, unrelated point. Magic. After more than a week of my neck just fricking hurting, like every day, way too much (I had this massage that I swear squeezed all my body tension into my left neck) ... it's gone. Why? Acupuncture. Magic. There you go, squared.
