It’s hot here in Melbourne. Damn hot. And it’s going to stay hot for the next few days. But since we have no luxuries like air conditioning or even an electric fan, the only choice is to tough it out. These are my heat-coping tips:
- fill the bath up with water and paddle. A kiddie pool is better but since our landlords haven’t mowed the lawn in forever, I’d rather not risk the snakes and other critters (mountain lions, wildebeasts etc) in the yard.
- supersoaker fights
- singstar – it makes you forget you’re hot
- going to the local bar (with air conditioning). The cinema is good to but you can only stick around as long as the movie, at the bar you can stay until closing.
- lemon sorbet!
The worst thing to do is complain about the heat. It just makes you hotter.
I had to put on my suit and go to a job interview today. You can pretty much guarantee every Summer on the hottest day of the year, I will have a job interview. Oh yeah wearing a suit in the heat is so much fun. It was a weird interview and I don’t think I got the job but on the way home I bought an awesome dress reduced from $129 to $30. Will post pic later.
Must go… I need to make myself a facewasher hat.
