So, woo hoo! We broke the record! Remember, if it’s going to be sweltering hot, at least let us be part of history. Also, yesterday afternoon, about the time it hit that record, our air conditioner started to give up. We’ll be calling for, hopefully quick, service today. We slept in the living room last night. Bedtime temperature in the lower level was 82!
1. What's your favorite childhood snack that you still eat as an adult?
Fresh fruit. Mom was big on fruit as a snack and my parents were both fans of trying new fruits, so from a very young age I enjoyed not just apples and bananas, but persimmons, pomegranate, kumquats and a few different varieties of pears. I still love fresh fruit and many different types of it.
2. What food will you not eat the low fat version of?
Cofffeemate. There is little difference in the stats between the low fat and regular, but a huge difference in taste. I don’t use enough of it to make a big difference anyway and we’re talking about messing with my coffee!
3. What's your favorite way to cool off during the summer?
Ponytails. Seriously, aside from air conditioning, which I usually set cooler than I find comfortable, I have very thick hair and just pulling it away from my neck can make a huge difference. Last time I got my hair cur I told Jamie that I wanted it left long for ponytail season. It also shows off my earrings, but it also means that I really should make a point of wearing earrings!
4. What's your favorite summer read?
Hmmm, as in a book about summer or one I read every summer? If it’s the latter, I tend not to read many books again because there are so many waiting to be read!
Okay, so there was a radio script I read in high school that was an adaptation of the Twilight Zone episode, Midnight Sun. The earth was thrown off its orbit and moving closer to the sun. People were attacking each other for water or fans or anything to get a little cooler. The town where the story takes place is part deserted from people crowding the road to go north to look for a little relief, as far north as they can. I actually read that script before I saw the Twilight Zone episode, It’s just a great story, with a surprise ending.
5. What are you doing to stay cool in this awful heat?
Um, ponytail, getting the AC fixed!

** With the heat in the house I worry more about David because I handle the heat better. If it was 10 below and we lost power, it would be worse for me. No, it would be devastating for me. But as it is now, 82 degrees is just a little warm for sleeping ad muggy in the house is not good for existing during the day!
** If you didn’t see my post explaining what I call hot dogs, please read Snouts and Tails.
** My overdue coffee order should be in this weekend. It’s not anyone’s fault but mine on the overdue part, I just ordered it, finally. I broke out of my PVSD, Post Vacation Spending Disorder and my spender’s block has cautiously gone away. That means I’ll have K-Cups in the house!
