Yeah, yeah, whine whine whine. I know for people who live in Alabama or Perth or other places that could be confused with Hell in the summer 44C (or 111F) with the humidity is just another day in paradise. For us up here? Ack!!!! Our buildings and system are not set up to cope. My office faces the sun in the morning and it gets so hot the air conditioning just can't keep up. Even my window air conditioner at home can hardly make a dent in the heat in my bedroom. I'm really surprised there haven't been more power outages as we all struggle to get ourselves cooled down. We're supposed to get a break tomorrow, down to 90 instead of 110. Oh joy.
So as a result I haven't done hardly any reading because when I'm hot I just can't focus. I don't think I've finished one new book this week. I've flipped (electronically) through some older books and done some rereads but it's just a big fat blah. I've cooked nothing in an attempt not to turn on the stove. Last night I stopped at the store to get a precooked chicken and some buns. Tonight might be frozen dinners. I have an internet friend (and his friend) coming to stay with us this weekend so I've been trying to get my house cleaned up a bit, but it's tough to get motivated with the heat and I hope it cools down a bit before they get here so they can actually sleep and not wake up in a puddle of sweat.
So there's that. Nothing exciting, just trying to stay cool, (metaphotically at work as well as it was pretty close yesterday - it's going to be a rough year I think). Here are some hot cookies to keep you amused until I get my act together.
