I am pleased that...

     The weather forecasters totally botched it on Monday. The humidity was ghastly, but it was cloudy most of the day, and didn't quite make 80. Made for a much more bearable walk home!

     I got to talk to the caretaker last night; the work he's going to do to try to ward future flooding is all outside--so I was able to start moving stuff back into my room at last! After five days, I can use my computer again! =D (The whole rest of this week will probably be catch-up and clean-up, but at least I have the option of doing creative/computer stuff now.)

     And I'm only 228th in line at the library for the 7th Harry Potter book--already down over 100 places from where I was a week ago!

I finished it again last night, and enjoyed it just as much the second time. And I have to say, I no longer think five is so bad. I've read it four times now, and actually quite like it. Through my last read it was GoF that got on my nerves and I couldn't wait for it to be over ^_^

Yay for getting to move stuff back in, so sorry to hear that you flooded :( Definitely no fun.

Here's to hoping the weather continues to defy the forecasters.

Looks like the heat wave won't be as long or as hot as originally predicted--I'm glad for that!

Is the flooding affecting your area?

I'm very pleased to hear that things are getting back to normal in your apartment and that the weather is good.

Just can't get into the HP hype, I'm afraid. 5 did a pretty good job of killing it for me. Maybe I'll get around to 6 & 7 one day.

Every day of reprieve helps in the weather department. =P Will take a while to get 'back to normal' but at least the kitchen isn't so cluttered with stuff anymore.

You should! 6 more than makes up for 5, and I do believe it's my favorite at present.

Ack, your place flooded? :X That happened to my grandparents' flat once - the smell was hideous! You poor thing. Hope everything's drying out and coming good (though if it's humid heat that won't be helping much, will it? argh).

Potter *twitch* Afraid I'm with Beth, there - 5 & 6 left me so cold I'm in no hurry to rush to 7. One day, maybe. (Or maybe if I get really desperate for something to read in English!)

Here's to quick-drying apartments and fast-moving library queues ;)

The smell was hideous last Thursday and Friday. Thank God the weather was cool and not humid until Sunday noon, and by then all the drying was complete. =)

*shakes head* I can't comprehend leaving a fun story unfinished. (Well, unending stories like Jordan and Goodkind are a different matter ;)

It's dry! I just have oodles of catch-up with money stuff, downloading stuff, and putting stuff back while trying to do some sorting and purging.
