Summer Breezes

I'm melting. No, not really. I'm in a nice, air-conditioned office at the moment, but I will most certainly be melting later this evening. My dad, crazy old man that he is, doesn't believe in AC. He thinks it saps electricity. That may be true enough, but it's our first 90 degree day ALL summer, and the humidity and heat index and whatever is making it feel as if it were 99 outside.

Supercalifragilistic. My hair is preparing the rebellion now. Vive la revolution.

I can't stand it when the mercury climbs above 85 degrees. I get all sluggish and throw myself all dramatic across our couch, complaining that it is way too hot and I can't wait until winter. I think most Clevelanders do this, although the average Clevelander loathes our winters. A Cleveland winter is chock full of snow, wind, subzero-ish temperatures, snow, puffy coats that don't exactly cover your ass (I, however, own a L.L. Bean parka that covers my ass quite adequately--being warm doesn't mean being all cutesy and have to get a bit shapeless amd frumpy in order to stay nice and toasty), and snow. Talk to me from mid-November to late March, and I'm either threatening anarchy or moving to Hawaii, or both.

This type of weather calls for sand, surf, flip-flops, and a nice, big strawberry banana margarita. No salt, extra liquor. Yum.

But the beaches in Cleveland are questionable, I can't swim, and I'm broke til payday. So...I guess I can just put some flip-flops on and call it a day. Good enough.

So here's our muggy, 90 degree Sunday playlist. Enjoy.

  1. Wish it was the first 90 degree day here. Nope, it's a strange case of 70s until tomorrow, where it will be back in the 100s. Bleh.

  2. You should visit India sometime. It's mostly in the 100s here. I can identify with what you feel though. When it gets too hot, I cannot do anything at all. I just lie down and prepare to melt. Hehe.
    Keep posting! :)

  3. What is it with Ohio people and AC??? It seems like most houses my hubby and I look at dont have AC! WTH!!! Damn, you have indoor plumbing dont you, crap, get with the program and use some AC!! Its just crazy, living in VA so long and then moving to the north pole aka Ohio. No AC, and you will freeze your butt off in the winter. Oh well, I'd do anything for my honey!!

  4. come to texas sometime! always in the 100s in the summer.

  5. I miss hot summer weather! Love that Jem song. :)


I'm a shallow person, so I love to hear what you have to say about me...Lavish me with praise, or rip me up and make me want to cry.
