This morning was a bit crazy. I accidentally hit the Dismiss button instead of the Snooze button on my alarm and nearly overslept!

I hurried back to my room to get ready. I heard some men coming down the hall. I thought, "Oh, yay, they're going to fix my A/C." Heh, no. One of the dorm ladies comes in my room, followed by the two men, doesn't even look at me as I stand there in my little pajamas (it's a good thing I hadn't already taken off my pajamas), and goes around the room shaking the beds. I was thinking, WTF? One of the men tightened one screw and then they left. Interestingly, the dorm lady thought it was a bit warm in my room and turned on the A/C. Apparently she didn't get the memo.

So I quickly finished getting ready and ran to class. Had a great class with my student. I really adore her.

Right after class, I went to the store and got three drinks: two cold jasmine teas and an Ahhh! tea. Then I got my standard brunch of late: Chinese burrito and sweet flat roll.

It was really hot in my room (A/C still not fixed), so I ate in my sleeping room. When I went in, I couldn't turn on the lights. Hmmm. The lights were on in the hall. Oftentimes, they don't even bother to turn on the hall lights, not even at night, but they were burning bright now. The doors to the other rooms were unlocked; I suppose because of the screw tightening procedure that morning. So I checked the lights in a couple other rooms. All fine.

So I didn't really need lights; it was daytime. I ate my food, then took a long, much needed nap. Later I went back to my real room to do some things. I heard the normal clicking of the electrical box and it dawned on me. I went and opened it and looked in it--a bunch of breaker switches. Ah, ha. I mentally took note of the position of them all. I then went back to my sleeping room and opened that one. One was off. I flipped it on and VOILA! the lights magically turned on.

You lose Dragon Lady. What will she try next?
