A selection of words from my vast vocabulary, including the ubiquitous "the," the always versatile "and," and the more obscure "incontrovertible," arranged in frequently meaningful, sometimes profound, yet often pedestrian sentences and statements, designed with one goal in mind-- that being, to communicate; keeping in mind the oft-used bromide, "Never use two words when one will do the same job as two or more words would have done, unless you just want to take up space and sound important," which is, I must concede, too often a secret objective of mine indeed. And yet, now, the secret is out.

Rear Window

One of my favorite movies is Alfred Hitchcock's "Rear Window."

And it has to be watched in the heat of the summer. Because the whole movie is set in a sweltering New York summer.

Before I had air conditioning, I used to love watching this movie on a Saturday night, sweat dripping from my forehead, as it did with Jimmy Stewart in the movie. There was something about watching this movie in the hot evening hours...

But when I got air conditioning, well, it just wasn't the same. Modern technology has taken something from the experience. Rear Window isn't quite the same if you're not sweating while you watch it.

This summer, though, I was greeted with a dead AC unit when I got home from work yesterday. The repairman won't come till Monday.

SO, I availed myself of the opportunity, and as I type these words, Jimmy and Grace are gracing my television, in that NY apartment, as they stalk Raymond Burr-- the murderous murderer who lives across the apartment complex.

Thank god for special AC outages. Very good memories, actually...

Very good.
