I’m writing for tomorrow.  I had to rearrange furniture to give the maintenance man a clear path to the window.  That blocked my access to my computer.  I figured I’d be able to get to it by midday.  I skipped my morning sleep to let the maintenance man in.  Unfortunately, his previous stop took longer than expected, and he did not get here until mid afternoon.  He installed the air conditioner.  The trim that came with it would not work with the platforms they use to make sure an A/C doesn’t fall on a downtown pedestrian’s head.  He had to jury rig the enclosure, so the installation looks tacky, but is very efficient.  I rearranged my furniture and went to bed, so there was no time to do research for articles for tomorrow.  Day 23.  Back to today’s serious activity (see graphic).

Jig Zone Puzzle:

Today’s took me 3:20 (average 4:33).  To do it, click here.  How did you do?

  1. 3:03 I'm definitely not over-wrought by this puzzle.


  2. 4:27  Isn't it a little bit – well – ugly?

    Yeah, that's Hofstadter's Law (one of the corollaries of Murphy's Law) – everything takes longer than you think it will, even after you have considered Hofstadter's Law.  Probably the only "Law" that's in the form of a strange loop.  But it's in, and it works, and you probably have some sleep catching up to do.  And the supports to keep it from falling on pedestrians (and incidentally so you don't lose it) are more important then the trim.  Catnap without guilt!

  3. A tacky installation is better than no installation especially considering the warm weather we have been having on the west coast..

  4. Glad you got it installed.  No airconditioning man, plumber, or electrician has ever shown up at my house withing the time frame I have been quoted.  I just don't expect it anymore.  I am just grateful when they do show up.  Of course, I love the graphic, looks like Oreo's mom, Gracie.

  5. Glad to see you back to normal TC – I was worried when your fur turned ginger the other day – must have been the heat!
