It's already 72° here in Tampa, and either the humidity is 90% or my cell phone is almost fully charged. (Note to self: check data locations on new Droid screen layout.)

Challenging work. Sometimes I have to stop, take a deep breath, and ask myself, "What would MacGyver do in a situation like this?"

The hotel vending machines are reasonably priced, but have an interesting customer gouging approach. My first purchase in any of their machines never dispenses; it gets stuck in the chute. The devices appear to be bolted to the floor so I can't shake them. Rather than waste time calling maintenance, I buy a second one of whatever I previously purchased, and both then fall successfully from the twirly-thingie.

Local television news is stupid everywhere. Saw a segment on how to deal with the high temperature and humidity. In Tampa. In September.

Time for breakfast and the free scrambled eggs and sausage patties. As Tom Lehrer sang, "To think of all the marvelous ways they're using plastics nowadays..."
