36C

It's almost too hot to move...even now, when I suppose it must have cooled down a bit. You see, since I live on the top floor of an apartment building, and the whole thing has got a flat roof, here's where all the heat gets trapped: inside my flat. It's like an oven in here. Opening doors and windows doesn't help much, as there's no breeze of any kind...These days, I'm even glad to be going into the office, because at least there's a fully functional airco system...I can keep cool for 8 hours a day!

And suddenly, it seems as if all my friends are moving onto MySpace. Some even prettify their pages there. Wonder how they did that? If mine were prettier, perhaps I'd spend more time there, too.

we don't have aircon at work so it's sweltering every moment of the day :(

myspace has a section where you can choose a background :)

I'm so glad to hear that!

I'll see if I can find that section you mention when I visit MySpace next -- which may be in a week or two...three...I really don't have much use for MySpace, if truth be told.

Yeah, I do go to myspace daily, but that's just because I have some friends on there not here, and I like to know what they're up to!

It took me months and months to start using it, and I still don't blog there!

Well, I've copied a few posts over into my blog there, just to have it stop saying (something along the lines of) "this person has not entered anything in their blog". But I might as well not have bothered...

MySpace is great for discovering new music. But it's not very user-friendly and you can't keep a conversation going there (which btw, is one of Vox's drawbacks as well: you can comment, but you can't get a thread going).

I still like lj better. It is easier to use, and has some features that myspace doesn't.

So far, I've found LJ to be far superior both to MySpace and Vox, that SixApart are trying to flog...elfgirl gave me an invite a couple of weeks ago, and I've had a look around, but I don't think I'll ever be leaving here in a hurry.

Are you still going to get those boots you saw?

Absolutely! I have been mentally putting together outfits to wear them with. I love boots...and heels.

Hee! I believe mentally putting together outfits to go with a pair of shoes/boots you've seen is already more than half the fun in actually getting them.

I love boots...and heels.

And me...You do realise I will want to see a picture of your purchase, don't you?

Of course there will be pictures of them. :) Probably in a week or two. Considering the type of boot they are, I am trying to come up with outfits that can be worn in more places than just going out (which happens so infrequently).

Good, I'll be on the look-out for them! ;-)

Oh no - don't go to MySpace, we love you here!

You do? Well, that clinches it then: I'll stay!

Seriously, I was never going to go anywhere else: LJ is my home.

Yuck. It's been awful here, too, but everywhere has air conditioning, so we've at least got some relief. Probably horrible for the environment, but there are days I don't care.

I used to hate our aircon systems because they always made me sick or, at the very least, gave me a stonking headache; and I have often cursed the present system for lowering the temperature in the building too much, but for this week at least, I'm grateful to be working in something that I would normally call a fridge. It's just too darn hot outside, and we're not made for this.

I kind of really hate MySpace, but it suffers greatly by comparison to LJ, which I love (and I hope SixApart don't ruin it).

So I'm trying to just think of MySpace as a whole nother animal and a different way to keep in touch with people. I may mess around with prettifying it as well, just because. But then I expect I'll forget all about it for weeks on end.

I don't actually need to be there at the moment (ref: this post) so I'm not paying a great deal of attention ...

I know; I saw your post on the subject last night. So glad your friend's decided to step in and take the boy home with her for a while.

I've got one, but mainly so I can find new bands and stuff. It's not all that great for meeting new friends.

Yup, that's why I got mine, too. It sits idle mostly, though...

I could feel myself heating up when I read your oven comment...! I wish it would just rain and rain, or at least be cold for a while. Holland and the UK just aren't well equipped to deal with this kind of horrible heat...we think we can carry on as usual, instead of taking things slowly and having siestas! Roll on Autumn, I say. ;)

Never a truer word was spoken! Roll on October and autumn, I say! ;-)
