And thank the forking Lard for the a/c. I keep having to go outside to manage doing a month's worth of laundry and every time I am sure I am going to start frying.

Oh yeah, and we have to go to an outdoor party for work tonight. I just love sweating in front of my employers.

Suck it up, Toots. It's going to be hotter than this in August.

It's been 100+ degrees here. The high today is 103. If we hit 80 I'd probably reach for a sweater.

Also I'm really annoyed today because I went to pick up two burgers and sat outside in the sun waiting for them for AN HOUR because the place is just so forking slow. I swear there must be one guy back there shaping and grilling each forking patty individually. By the time I got my food I had a pounding headache and thought I was going to fall over and die. I came home and pounded my burger in about 2 minutes. Good, but not worth it.

The week I spent in Edinburgh it was at least in the 30s C. We were on the third floor of a B&B there with no a/c and I was pretty thrilled to get back to London (where it was, for whatever reason, much cooler). So I do not believe ANY of this 'scotland is cold' nonsense.

We tried to go to the water park here yesterday and it was COLD. Low 70s and the sky was gray. I thought at least it would be empty but no, it's full of ComicCon tourists who are used to shitty weather, so it was just all bad. V was shivering and begging not to go in some of the pools, and after a while we just gave up and went back to regular Legoland.

Also we don't got a/c here and also I can barely open my window because Venger. And also Scottish. It's a true, scientifically proven by allularpunk's aunt, fact that Scottish people expire at circa 75F. So basically I am typing from the beyond.

I believe this is also true of Americans who have acclimatised to the Scottish weather. I'm in the same boat re: window opening, but at least I have lots of windows to open a crack, so it's not so bad.

Noooo! August is supposed to be cooler! In the 8 years I've lived here, I can't recall more than a few days in August that were too hot to bear. I now expect my birthday to be relatively cool, whereas I used to expect to spend my birthday in an air-conditioned room without moving because it was so hot.

Hahahaha! So much. Sorry, buds, but Scotland has the capacity to be a miserable ol' firey pit of sweaty misery too. And yeah: no a/c.

There is unexplained weirdness going on with the Apple dev center and some reports that could be just rumor mongering about unauthorized password resets being sent even to non developer accounts. I'd just be safe and, for now, if you are using the same password anywhere other than apple/iTunes, change it and change your iTunes to something you don't use anywhere.

My big plan for today was to go to a cookbook store but they were closed. I just need to share the awesomeness of an entire store of cookbooks.

I wanted to go to Books for Cooks when I was in London but managed to go on a day they were closed! It's a conspiracy of cookbooks.

It is finally cooler here! We just had a week long heatwave. I went out yesterday afternoon and I actually said to myself, "this is dangerously hot." But then it rained and it's down to 26-28C, which I can deal with. The local news was comparing our temperature to typical hot spots all over the world and our temperatures were hotter! fork that noise, I live in Canada and DO NOT WANT THIS.

Today was my last day at my job and tomorrow I leave for Boston at 6am. I cried saying goodbye to everyone and I'm crying again now. I really loved the people I worked with.

Right before we left for this work party we heard a huge explosion in the neighborhood and then had a brown out. It was a good moment to leave the house, cuz no a/c, and I did in fact sweat my heart out at this party. Like rivulets of sweat running down my legs within ten minutes.

I need to be up in less than 3 hours to pack up the car and head out but I can't sleep. There's so much on my mind.

I've just found out about my 10 year (high school) reunion, which is apparently in the planning stages and it solidified two things I knew in the abstract: 1) everyone has/is having babies! Holy moly! 2) I have absolutely no interest in seeing almost anyone I went to high school with. None. Zero. Zilch. The thought of attending crystalizes the meaning of ennui.

What is up with the goddamn seagulls around here?! They're flying around squawking and just won't shut up. They're so loud! It might be some kind of bird gang turf war. Mike thinks they're trying to intimidate him - apparently the seagulls near his office have buzzed him a couple of times. I just wish they would shut up. I can't get comfortable at night without the window open, but then they won't STFU and keep me awake.

Hah, I can commiserate! Since a couple of months ago, there's this super loud annoying bird around here. Like, pillow over my head, stupidly loud. There are like 5 million neighbourhood cats and they don't even scare him/her away. Do your job, cats!

I came in here to yell at myself. I'm a bloody idiot. WHAT THE HELL I DON'T EVEN KNOW.

the birds are hot, too.

but they don't have *real* internet to post their frustrations on, so for now the airspace around your home IS their internet forum.

The seagulls probably have nestlings or fledglings. They get really territorial and make a lot of noise protecting their young from intruders and other seagulls. Buzzing and divebombing are usually a sign that you've inadvertently wandered too close to their nest/young.

Fisticuffs, your noisy bird is probably protecting his territory from rival males.

It's funny. I'm never bothered by bird sounds. (Even the noisy asparagus squalking from the flocks of feral parakeets in Amsterdam.) I would so much rather hear noisy birds than noisy humans.

I started getting motivated by unfuckyourhabitat.com and made some progress in the kitchen but I am just awful at concentrating on things. I've been doing bits and pieces of cleaning/tidying all over the house and haven't really finished anything.

Do we have a tidy house thread? If not, should I start one?
