I can't stand the rain

Enough, already! I've had it with this summer that just won't hurry up and get here. I'm so sick of all this rain and wind and more rain. Here we are in July, and I'm wearing jumpers, for pity's sake! Could those two or three sunny weeks we had back in April really have been it for this year?

Tomorrow's going to be my last day at work before my surgery. Yay! I've taken the Friday off to give the flat a really good clean, as I don't want to come home to it after two weeks at my Mum's and, hampered by my cast, be unable to do anything about my dirty kitchen floor. The weekend will be taken up by me ferrying stuff (clothes, books, mp3 player, phone -- and chargers, mustn't forget chargers!) over to Mum's, and saying teary farewells to my cats who Mum won't let me bring. Poor darlings! They know something's up; they've stuck to me like glue the last couple of days, and seem to get upset when I move out of the room and their direct line of vision. I hear them meow as they go looking for me, and Manasse has gotten into the annoying habit of trying to bar my way to the door each morning, dancing around my legs until he almost trips me up. Whatever time remains will most likely be spent here, as this will be my last chance to get online before I come back.

And although I tell myself it's too early yet to notice any change, I can't shake the impression that my jeans are starting to fit better. I don't feel like my belly is straining against their waistband as much -- but that could be wishful thinking. I still don't see a supermodel looking back at me from the mirror.

Happy birthday, diachrony! I hope your day is fabulous!

Funnily enough humanity coped without air conditioning for many hundreds of thousands of years, surviving in all areas of the globe including equatorial forest etc.

If the whole world switched off the air conditioning it might actually be beneficial in the long term as it would reduce energy use. And oddly enough we have not had time to evolve into a state of physical dependance on it, so we would all manage!

You may not have meant it, but your reply reads very snarky.

In principle, I agree with you, but I personally think the likelihood of staving off global warming is very low because people like their wasteful ways. I guess I'm one of them, because I'm not willing to give up mine if no-one else does. And I've been to America; I think the likelihood of that is near-zero.

Though I must be more honourable than I thought, as I live through the Australian Summer without a/c. :P
