Dammit Summer!


I think the sun hates me right back.

Oh fuck, here we go. Yesterday when I went out to feed the cats at 9am it was already 83 degrees outside. All hot, heavy and sticky. We are now officially in summer. No more cooling down at night and then getting ridiculously hot during the day, oh no. It will now be ass-the-fuck tropical damn hot 24 hours a day and seven days a week. Joy.

My deep hatred for summer is well-documented on this blog. I literally cannot stand it. Yesterday morning's heat sent me into a deep, summer-is-here related funk. I had things to do, but couldn't. All I could think was "Jesus' ass, it's hot out there!" I took a nap three hours after waking up because of it.

Summer just takes the life out of me. I can't concentrate. I want to move even less than I normally do. The very idea of things makes me tired. Anything other than sleep is exhausting. It's a miserable way to live.

Really, can't we stagger the heat? You know, have an 85 degree day on Monday and then a 65 degree day Tuesday. Wouldn't that make more sense? I bet less people would kill and be murdered during summers if we worked it like that.

I used to be like you. Nothing I hated more than Summer. Then I got my first air conditioner. Things are better. I actually enjoy the sun and the heat now because I know I can get relief indoors. I may be taking that all back in a few weeks, but for now, I wish it were hotter. It's still kind of frigid here. Everything is all effed up weather wise. Al Gore was right!

That's an interesting perspective, Tracey. You know, I don't think I've ever lived in a place without air conditioning, and yet, as I get older I hate summer and heat more and more.

I really am a beautiful freak of nature, aren't I?

I know what you mean, I cannot function very well when it's THAT hot!! Ugh.

Luckily in SF the temps do stagger themselves quite a bit every day...

Hope you get some respite soon!

Staggered temps? Oh...That would be lovely...
