|Heat-proofing and how I'm summerin'
||[Jul. 8th, 2010|01:08 am]
So, living in the south means I'm developing some heat resistant powers. Well, that and the fact that my AC has run less that 48 total hours this year. I am stubborn and I want to save moneh, dammit. I do, however, still feel whiny when it gets over 90 and I'm expected to do something other than lay under the fan and make noises into it.|
Anyway, I'm going to visit the mouse in Orlando in August, and I've been looking up stuff that helps to deal with OMGTEHEATS. I will quite possibly take all of the following in a wee hip bag: frozen-but-thawing individual pack baby wipes, a wee fan, and a bandanna to wipe sweat and soak in cold water for the wearing. And a travel size thing of sunscreen because lordy, I will need to reapply.
Any other helpful hints, flist? Hot as it's been here already I may need to start doing some test runs . . . if I can get myself to stay outside for a reason that isn't getting into the pool. So, not likely :-D
On which point, summer vacay so far has been quite awesome. I have a pile o' alterations to do, some of my own and several for a paying customer (woo!). I've been watching Nip/Tuck on Netflix, which has 6 season up streaming. Clearly someone up there (by which I mean either God or Netflix HQ) knows that I love a good premium network dramedy with my crafting.
Other than that, I've been bunny combing and hanging out with friends between when I wake up (often late) and taking dips in the complex's pool (frequent). I've stopped eating proper organized meals and just sorta eat when I get too tired to keep doing what I'm doing. In short, I'm rolling along in an incredibly pleasant way :-)
