Even air conditioning is insufficient

I can't be a responsible adult and clean all the things when it's too hot to do anything. Even inside, if I start DOING anything, I start sweating. The humidity has kicked into full gear and it's supposed to top 111*F today. Blerg.

On the other hand, it's the best time of year to go to Costco and roam around inside the veggie cooler.

The cats got out when we came back from Costco and stayed outside for about twenty minutes before screaming to come back in, and now they are both camped out flat on the coffee table. Dummies.

I want to go to Trader Joe's and Total Wine, but that would require going OUTSIDE again.

Of course, I have to go outside and hang up the rest of the clothes. The laundry was not the horror I expected, considering I didn't do any of it last week. As often happens, I hang out a load of black t-shirts and wonder if all geeks have at least one of those loads per week...

I REALLY need to vacuum. And mop the floor. And get a laptop desk so this HOT COMPUTER isn't sitting directly on my legs...

Way to go, Argentina. I bought some Argentinian Malbec (recommended last week by Snooth) to celebrate.

is it supposed to be this humid in Phoenix or is this a result of all the environment tampering those temperate grass yards retirees demand on having?

I'd be curious to know what you think of the Malbec. did you get it at trader joe's (planning a trip there next weekend)

Oh, yeah. It's monsoon season. Theoretically it's the "rainy" season; what's been really bad about it is there actually hasn't been any RAIN (nothing measurable in the city since April). It's actually only about 30%, but when it's over 105, it just feels a lot worse.

I'll let you know. I got it at Costco, so it was way inexpensive; hopefully that doesn't mean it's cheap.

yeah the humidity is what really sucks.


Ah, see I'll never get that one. My parents' costco is in PA and no alcohol allowed. hope it's good

No alcohol??? What kind of Costco is THAT?

Anyway, the label is Che Gaucho, and claims "since 1890," so you may see it around, if it's good.

No store can sell alcohol in PA. ONLY state run beer distributors and state stores can sell alcohol. WHat it lacks in convienence it usually makes up for in variety

My goodness, all the family I've had in PA and I never knew that! (Of course, the last time I was there, the only alcohol I had was at a wedding, and didn't buy anything myself...)

yep. it can be a pain. then again you have variety. I'm stuck here with like two brands of any liquor. You can't even find regular rum here, just the flavored crap

Oh yeah. It's stupid hot here too. 100+. Which for us, really hot. And we have no central a/c. We survive with 2 window units (on the west walls) and a honking big fan.

Blah.

I do feel for you folks in the lands where central air is rare and precious. Here it's a lifeline; most historians agree that Phoenix wouldn't have been populated like it is now if central air hadn't been invented (they used to send the women and children north for the summer).

It is MUCH too hot to clean all the things.

I hung up the laundry inside. It was the delicates, anyway.

{hugs} and ice!

You have all my sympathy. It's miserable here, too. And my brain is dead, which only makes it worse. *sigh*

PS - Use a bed pillow under the computer 'til you get a desk thingie.

Brain definitely dead. I'm just glad I found the Hyperbole blog. Brain needed the laughter. *g*

I have one of those pillow-bottomed laptop desks, but it's mighty hot, too. ThinkGeek has some really nice light ones that allow more air circulation.
