Today doesn't count  
It was so stinky hot today that I could not sleep at all last night and failed to get to work today due to a thumpy head that lasted til 2.30. So I hatched a plan to do other useful things!

Of these, I managed eat ice-cream, play with cats, do physio and arm exercises. And buy peaches and more ice-cream.

I'm just going to write today down as cancelled due to adverse weather conditions.

I wholeheartedly support this day being cancelled. I spent most of it with one or two small children sitting on me and crying (I don't know what set them off), and would really rather just try again tomorrow, ta very much, without all the tears and the snot and the red-faced screeching. Bah.

No one on my flist has a Jan 27 birthday, I say we just bin the whole thing and start again in the morning!

That reminds me of a quote. "I am an excellent housekeeper. When I divorce men, I keep their houses!"

*sends you artic chill and snowflakes to soothe the heat*

Roofs are collapsing here because of the amount of snow. We've had something on the order of 1.5 metres in the last three weeks.

It's ALL CRAZY! The sea water is so warm here that we have had record rains and an area the size of France and Germany underwater. You are very welcome to take some of the heat! And thank you very much for the cool!

And I swear that the next person who tells me that there is no climate change is not going to receive a carefully argued and footnoted lecture from me, I'm just going to kick the fuckers in the shins from now on.

Oh, climate change is real, baby - maybe not the way the scientists are going on about it, but its real. I hate to say things like,"Well, when *I* was young ...(we had to walk ten miles to school over an arctic snow cap in socks)" but honestly, I've never seen such messed-up weather in my life. We either get buried in snow or its like spring all winter. (Alas, not this year, but last year)

As though life weren't weird enough ...

It really is the way scientists are going on about it, though. We are so thoroughly and deeply fucked and yet people are being fed the lie that there is no reason to panic by a general media that has less scientific sophistication than I have height.

If you send over some ten degrees my way, we might be approaching zero from below here and it will pleasant for you. Good plan, don't you think?

I totally understand the need to cancel everything when it gets to hot.

You may have 15 and we will both benefit immensely!

I would have coped if not for the headache, but since it was clearly a sign that my brain was moving from a liquid to gaseous state, I decided to keep it out of the sun until it resolidified.

Sounds like a wise choice. :)

I love the diversity on my flist! Some are complaining about blizzards, others heat... :D

It's so odd to read this when I look out the window and see the five new inches of snow we got last night/this morning and look over to see my pajama-clad kid happily enjoying his snow day. :P
