It is 1.35am and 31 degrees at my house.

I was so slaughtered by the day that I fell asleep when I came home, and thus did not manage to go and buy a big bag of ice, which means I cannot have an iced drink as Mr Brammers does not love me and did not psychically intuit my need. Also, I failed to dig out the ice cube trays and make use of the freezer, due to the aforementioned slaughter.

And yes, I have had sorbet or gelato for dinner two days in a row. Given the weather report, this may extend to four by the end of the weekend.

And in case Barnaby Joyce or Ian Pilmer are secretly on my flist, solar activity is currently at a fifty-year low. Also, I really hate both of you.

No, though it looks very good and I have heard that he is very interesting.

You know, I have dozens of ice packs in this house, do you think I can put a hand to any of them?

I will hunt down a copy! Your rec is good enough for me! I quite like Huxley and Orwell (the latter a little more for his journalism), so I will probably love this.

Eh, it's all the protein. People will go back to a more vegetarian diet one day and we will be closer to global average again!

Club him to death with your handy footstool!

I survived July and August in Milan by taking lots of cold showers and running nude in the apartment, since any clothing at all was too much. Unfortunately, you don't live somewhere where frequent cold showers is a responsible option. I am *so* glad it has cooled down now, and laugh at how rugged up the locals are getting for what seems like nice, cool, but not cold temps to me.

The nudie run is a popular thing in this house. If you drink a glass of water and dribble some down your front, it is not a bad thing ;-)

sends cold thoughts your way
(ugh that sounds terrible)

*thinks ice pop, penguins, and snow*

No, it sounds great! We do have indigenous pengiuns in Sydney, you know. Poor little buggers on days like this ...

*Sends you some of the hot*

It is so weird to hear you talking about heat. Last Sunday we went to Costco for the only purpose of buying an electric blanket with dual controls. It is getting really cold around here.

Hopes you get some type of cooling breeze.

Alas, more hot and humid, and tomorrow up around the old-school hundred. I plan to stay inside!

It was quite warm here for a few days!
Of course, now it is cool again, and bucketing down with rain...

Is this the bit where I sniff and remind you that you're escaping all this in a matter of days?

Do NOT be complaining about how wet and cold it is in the UK, or there will be a pirate assassin waiting for you at the airport on your return.

38+ here yesterday - and we didn't get your pretty lightning storms. However, we do appear to have had something - won't call it cool, let's call it warm, damp facecloth - of a change come through.

I hate lots of things right now - Barnaby and Ian are somewhere in the list.

TWO WEEKS! ARGH! I have given up the sewing anything new plan and must now finally remember to book my Eurostar tickets. Sigh. I will be REVELLING in the cold and any wet to hand!

That lightning? 100+ fires. Sighs again.

I cannot believe people listen to men as physically unappealing as those two, with neither of them having the redeeming virtues of charisma or intelligence!

This gave me many smiles.

*Air hugs back* -- is too hot for real hugs. And today is the 'cool' day in the middle. Out to buy a cool top and big bags of ice!

I am so sorry you are melting.
I could not help but chuckle and smile
at your post. Esp. about the hubby.

Hot and humid temps. here in the summer
are like a blizzard to me.
All you do is stay inside in the air
conditioning, and little else.

I would try to do things in the early
morning or late at night when it was

Be careful in that heat, (sends you
cooling air and gentle breezes)
