Summer[Editor's Note: living in an area where broken air conditioning is
considered an emergency, I can *so* relate to this...]
Now this is a state that knows how to live!! Beautiful sunny days and warm balmy
evenings. Mountains and deserts blended together. What a place! Watched the
sunset from a park lying on a blanket. It beautiful. I've finally found my home.
I love it here.
Really heating up. Got to 100 today. Not a problem. Live in an air-conditioned
home, drive an air-conditioned car. What a pleasure to see the sun every day
like this. I'm turning into a real sun worshipper.
Had the backyard landscaped with western plants today. Lots of cactus and rocks.
What a breeze to maintain. No more mowing for me. Another scorcher today, but I
love it here.
The temperature hasn't been below 100 all week. How do people get used to this
kind of heat? At least it's a dry heat. Getting used to it is taking longer than
Fell asleep by the pool. (Got 3rd degree burns over 60% of my body.) Missed two
days of work, what a dumb thing to do. I learned my lesson though: got to
respect the ol' sun in a climate like this.
I missed Tabby (our cat) sneaking into the car when I left this morning. By the
time I got out to the hot car for lunch, Tabby had swollen up to the size of a
shopping bag and exploded all over $2,000 worth of leather upholstery. I told
the kids she ran away. The car now smells like Kibbles and shit. No more pets in
Dry f***ing heat, my ass. Hot is hot!! The home air-conditioner is on the fritz
and AC repairman charged $200 just to drive by and tell me he needed to order
Been sleeping outside by the pool for three nights now. $1,100 in damn house
payments and we can't even go inside. Why did I ever come here?
115 degrees. Finally got the air-conditioner fixed today. It cost $500 and gets
the temperature down to about 90. Stupid repairman pissed in my pool. I hate
this f***ing state.
If another wise ass cracks, "Hot enough for you today?", I'm going to tear his
f***ing throat out. Damn heat. By the time I get to work the radiator is boiling
over, my clothes are soaking wet, and I smell like roasted f***ing Garfield!!
The weather report might as well be a damn recording: Hot and Sunny. It's been
too hot to f*** for two damn months and the weatherman says it might really warm
up next week. Doesn't it ever rain in this barren damn desert?? Water rationing
has been in effect all summer, so $1,700 worth of cactus just dried up and blew
into the f***ing pool. Even a cactus can't live in this heat.
Welcome to Hell!!! Temperature got to 123 today. Forgot to crack the window and
blew the f***ing windshield out of the Lincoln. The installer came to fix it and
said, "Hot enough for you today?" My wife had to spend the $1,100 house payment
to bail me out of jail.
Worst day of the damn summer. I'm not leaving the house. The f***ing monsoon
rains finally came and all they did is to make it muggier than hell. The Lincoln
is now floating somewhere in Mexico with it's new $500 windshield.
That does it, we're moving to New York for some peace and quiet.
