6:30: Wake up at 6:30, exhausted and bleary-eyed.
7:00: Eat a huge breakfast of cereal, hash browns, strawberries, and coffee cake.
7:45: Kill time, sitting around with the (even more) impatient kids until 9:00.
9:05: Get into my newly repaired car (which I picked up only yesterday), to find that the AC is, once again, not working.
9:07: Curse, rage, and storm at the world, especially VW service techs from Maine who don't have enough experience with air conditioning.
9:08: Decide to have my day off anyway, and drive to Freeport.
10:05: On a tip, visit the Wilson's Leather outlet.
10:30: Perk up when I find - and buy - a $300 leather jacket for $50.
10:45 Hang jacket in my car, hoping the scent will perfume the interior.
10:55: Buy a Ben & Jerry's ice cream cone, half Phish Food and half Turtle Soup, for lunch.
11:00 Wander into and out of shops, browsing and eating my ice cream.
11:40: Get into the car to leave Freeport.
11:41: Discover that my AC is working. Rejoice.
11:42: Drive to Target in Topsham.
12:00: Stock up on granola bars, fruit snacks, razor blades, and dark chocolate.
12:10: Find, try on, and add to my basket a shirt I'd looked for in Jacksonville and failed to find. Rejoice again.
12:15: Grab A Million Little Pieces, since the first 90 pages of another counselor's copy have gotten me hooked. (So what if parts of it are made up? It's still great reading.)
12:20: Sit on the floor in the book section and have an almost-hour-long conversation with Mom about money, loans, old people, and other similarly gripping topics.
13:15: See the movie Hook for $9 and impulsively decide to buy it.
13:20: Check out.
13:21: Get some (but not enough) cash back for the Boston boat pilot.
13:23: Get into my car.
13:24: Discover that the AC is now, once again, not working.
13:25: Groan, roll eyes, then turn on music and drive to VW dealership.
13:54: Arrive at VW dealership only to discover that Billy ('my' employee) is not there.
13:55: Attempt to explain the situation to the man behind the desk, stressing the fact that $750 and two weeks is more than enough to spend on repairing an air conditioner.
13:58: Achieve a 'probably' as to whether or not a free repair can be gotten. Rejoice (cautiously).
14:00: Am told to call back on Monday, after he has spoken to the tech.
14:01: Get back into my car - AC still not working - and drive back to camp with a headache, planning to go to sleep.
14:29: Arrive at camp.
14:30: Decide to break the rules for once and just park behind my dorm, rather than a quarter-mile away at Alfond.
14:36: Fall into bed and sleep for three hours.
17:45: Wake up to the sound of a storm outside my window.
17:47: Realize I'm hungry.
18:00: Get back into the car - once again, no AC - and drive to Panera in the pouring rain.
18:30: Arrive at Panera and sprint through the rain to the door.
18:40: Get my Greek salad and Frontega Chicken panini.
18:41: Spot two more Powerbook users in the corner, and head over to join them.
18:42: Am asked whether I have ever connected here before, and if I know why they can't seem to get online.
18:43: Boot up my own computer.
18:44: Realize that they're doing everything right - the wireless Internet is just not working.
18:45: Internally curse, rage, and storm at the world some more. Try a few different computer things, to no avail.
18:50: Ask two different employees why we can't connect, and are told that everything is working as far as they can see, and that it's probably due to the storm.
18:52: Mutter some more curses and proceed to eat my food, plus a cookie.
19:15: Start typing this post in Word, for lack of other options.
19:51: Try Firefox one last time before shutting down computer.
19:53: Realize the Internet is now working. Rejoice.
19:57: Hurriedly post what I've written before it makes like a VW air conditioning and blows. (In the figurative sense, mind... only the figurative sense.)
