Too *pant* Hot *pant*

The heat just kills me.

I admit it, I was built for northern climes, with snow in the winter and summers that reach, oh a balmy 75°. I got close. There’s rarely snow, but Portland has a pretty mild climate. There’s just a few weeks during the summer that fill me with malaise and lethargy. So much so that I can barely think how to make it stop.

For example, it’s 9:00pm on the fourth day of a heat wave, and I just now thought about soaking a singlet and wearing it. Such sweet relief, and it has the added bonus of being sexy (wet t-shirt? hubby says). I gotta make notes about what to do on hot days, like I do about flu and other illnesses, so when I can’t think, I have a handy list. I’ll keep it with the sunscreen.

    Glad I’m not the only one dying from the heat. My friends in Vegas think I’m a wuss, but in relative terms it’s too darn hot here!

    I bet Bill isn’t looking forward to leaving that beautiful heat for our extremely chilling climes at the moment. Tuesday MIN 12C MAX 22C.

    Cat, could you contact me by email? I’m very much interested in participating in the Blogathong 2003, and your email contact returned a server error; plus there’s sparse info at (and a lot of dead links).

    I hope I can still participate.

    Uh, the preview button is there for a reason. Too bad I was in such a hurry.

    It’s, not Geesh!
