We do for others because we don't know how to do for ourselves. We do for others because we feel it is the only way to make up for the damage we feel our craziness is doing to society. We do for others because it makes us feel good when nothing else in the whole world does, not even pills. We stay quiet and sit in the corner because others seem so much more needy. We require so little, you and I. A fact which does not sit well with others who would label us as too much to handle. When in truth, all those such as us really need is a bit of understanding, a bit of reciprocation, maybe a touch on the cheek once in a while and a sly wink. The rest of the world is needy. I'd rather be crazy. ~~Aimee

I Shit You Not

A few of my USA friends have mentioned the heat and that they are "hot". I laugh at them because they have no freakin' clue what hot is. If you don't need to do this, then it is not hot where you are. A little background info so that you can truly appreciate the situation.

Towards the end of last summer our fridge died, but during the winter it's no biggie. We don't really use the fridge for much of anything anyways other than keeping water cold, and during winter that isn't an issue so we weren't in too much of a hurry to replace it. We figured whenever we found a good deal then we would. So a couple months ago, my BIL* who owns a fridge/AC repair type business came across an almost new fridge and told us we could have it for basically next to nothing. Of course we said "gimme" and since then have had a wonderful fridge until three/four days ago when it decided it did not want to work. 

So we called a local repairman who fixed it but that lasted less than 24 hrs. That is when my husband called his BIL to ask him about the fridge. Well his BIL lives in another city kinda far from us and said he couldn't come by til next week. So for the last couple days we have been managing without a fridge but it's hotter than fuckin' hell here and drinking water that could literally be straight from hell it is so hot does little to nothing to quench one's thirst. My husband calls said BIL back and leaves a msg. He calls while my husband was sleeping and talks to my MIL. He gives her instructions on how to temporarily "fix" the fridge so that it will work until he can come to repair it. 

This is what I found when I woke up. IShitYouNot:

There was this:
sitting behind our

 I asked my husband why there was a FAN sitting behind our FRIDGE. He said this as if it was the most logical natural thing in the world. Apparently according to said BIL the fridge might be getting too hot and to put a fan behind it so that it could get cool. That would keep it working until he can get here to fix it permanently.  (although in defense of the fan, the water is frozen solid)

So now at this very moment, we have a fan sitting behind our fridge on high, cooling our fridge so that we can have water that does not taste as if it is from Hell itself. So if you don't have to put a fan behind your fridge to keep it cool, then it's not really hot where you are. 

I swear when I moved  I thought I would be leaving behind redneck solutions. I could not have been more wrong. Sigh.

* Said BIL is my husband's sister's husband's brother and if you can follow that, then you have more white trash in you than you admit to

Okay, so I'm almost certain this was at least in part a response to my current facebook status. In which case, I shall remind you that you gave me permission to bitch about the heat simply on the basis of me being the most awesome person you know. Regardless, I must say that I have never had a fan behind my fridge. I have, however, fucked on top of a deep freezer before.

I shall bitch about the heat anyway. I live in AR, it's hot as hell. It's I can't breathe it's so frickin' hot. It's lie naked on the cold kitchen floor hot. It's ice cubes in your bra hot. I hate being hot. I hate sweating. It makes me want to kill people.

Ok, that's all the bitching I have for you.

Aimee, actually no I hadn't been on facebook. This just happened and all I could think about was the duct tape we use to use to tape plastic to the windows of the trailer.

SD, you are also on my allowed to bitch list So I shall not send my wrath upon you but I too was niave like you. I would happily take your hot any day. It's still cooler than here.

It's the 3rd day into winter here, and quite a chill in the air. I hate the friggin cold despite originally being from a cold country. Give me hot as hell summers and fridges with fans behind them anyday...but lucky we've got 2 fridges(we had one each of course prior to moving in together...the smaller one he uses for a beer fridge). I won't rub it in anymore(lol)...hope you get the fridge sorted...and cool down soon!
