Recommended Posts

LOL! First of all, LOVING the Anchorman quote from Mr Jason!!

 

Second, thanks for the explaination Lizz! I was wondering what that was. My first thought was maybe shaved ice/sno cone type thing...but this sounds way better!

I am dreading having to leave work today. We don't have AC at home and its about 97 degrees out and humid as fuck.
I LOVE Ron Burgandy!!!!!!! Milk was a bad choice!

This is the one time during the summer that I'm happy to live in an "oven". It may be over 100*, but the humidity is a measly 7%.

most schools up here closed early today ...mine has a/c so we were open all day, but i just got a recorded call from the superintendent that both schools in the district (i know, tiny district) will close at 1:30 tomorrow...which would normally be great but tomorrow is the 4th grade pool party, and we (the 4th grade teachers) need to make an appearance at 4.

My building is A/C'd but we still got out at 12pm. I was mad because my classes trip was canceled and they were upset. 12 tomorrow

It was 100 degrees still at 5pm today. Has since cooled off. I LOVE hot weather, but this is even too hot for me. Oh and I work at a restaurant and the ac went out and so did the exhaust fans for the ovens we had to stop taking orders. The whole place was filled with smoke from cooking and it was hotter inside than outside! I got sent home at 7. My eyes still hurt from the smoke. Apparently the hot weather and all the power being used made some electrical thing blow up in the street. All the businesses in the area were having the same problem. smile27.gif

MY AC JUST CAUGHT UP!!! I know I am a little late with the post but I started my day running a few errands and then spent the "hottest" part of the day painting my basement. I think this is the first time all day I have been comfortable! (Can we get a smiley that is sweating... I am sure it will be appropriate at other times than this)

Here in Dallas it's like being in a steam room! YUCK! One of my friends from CA came to visit last year and she felt like she could barely breathe 'cause the humidity makes the air feel so heavy. It's a shock if you're not used to it.

We've got upper 90's + thunderstorms today....ick! My hair is a MESS! lol!
Ya, our humidity BITES!

Dang you guys sorry it's so unpleasant in your neck of the woods. Drink lots of water and use that sunscreen!

 

I think the South gets it the worst, but I can't lie in L.A. it's hot and sticky like you describe all summer. Our first apartment had no AC and we used to sleep on the balcony with no covers because it was so hot at night...haha

 

You get used to it and come to embrace it, it's summer!!!

i totally forgot to post about the wedding we went to Saturday night (06.07.0cool.gif in the Heat Wave here....

 

it was a small wedding, maybe 50 or 60 people, VERY small venue and guess what?

 

the A.C. BROKE just before the wedding started! oops.gif

 

It was so freakin hot - we spent 4.5 hours basically sweating like pigs...i had my hair done earlier (blown out straight and curled loosely) - um, yeah that was a waste of money - i had to wear it up smile105.gif.

 

all the women wear complaining b/c their make up was running, their feet were swollen - it was crazy!!!!

 

it was cooler outside than inside - i wound up getting so drunk b/c i just kept drinking white wine (don't know why water never seemed like a good idea) and never ate anything - the food was sitting out sweating and looked disgusting!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
