Due to the +48°C temperature here (that's about 118°F for the Americans), and the extremely high humidity, I am currently existing in the form of a liquid. I am a puddle. As you can imagine, being a liquid makes it exceedingly difficult to type. What with the keyboard being a solid. It's all very scientific. I believe the risk of electrocution is greater, as well.

Also. More storms. Big, fat, juicy thunderstorms. Which in a more normal part of the world would bring relief from the heat. But not here. It just makes it hotter. And increases the risk of electrocution. Assuming of course that we don't lose power all together.

So, I am turning off my computer. No, not standby. Off. Stop gasping. It happens sometimes. I'll be OK. I went to the library and got some books and movies.

I'll be back. When I regain the solidity of my limbs again.

Hang in there woman. We finally got a reprieve from the heat (that went on for 2 months straight). I will be sending you buckets of virtual ice cubes right snappy.
