Hot enough for ya?

How hot is it?

So hot that ascending each floor to my third floor apartment is the climactic (and moral, perhaps) equivalent of descending to a lower level of Hades.

So hot that people aren't even using the vile cliche "It's not the heat, it's the humidity" because when it's 100 degrees, it is the damn heat.

So hot that the Red Sox are issuing warnings to fans after a pregnant lady died at the game over the weekend (although her death was probably due to a heart condition). Yikes.

How incredibly sad. :(

At the risk of being the epitome of poor taste, here's a pic of Affleck pulling a Reverse Bartman at Fenway over the weekend.

Yeah, I feel like a Debby Downer for posting about the dead lady.

But that's hilarious that Affleck was the one who missed that foul ball. I bet the Sox's creepiest celebrity fan, Stephen King, would have caught it.

I understand wanting to illustrate just how bad things are: When I moved to Seattle after graduation they were having a "heat wave," meaning that the temps got over 85°. Coming from both the east coast and midwest, I scoffed that it wasn't legit heat wave unless elderly people were dying in the cities.

I was wondering how you were doing with the heat at the apartment. I remember how hot and miserable it would get up there last summer, I can't imagine the misery with a heat wave. You and Ern are welcome to visit and stay over tonight if it becomes too unbearable up there. We have 3 window units and plenty of extra sleeping room plus Comcast.

Ooooh, Comcast
*drools*
Thanks, MJ! Ern has an AC in her room and I might sleep in the living room (where the other AC is) if it gets too hot tonight. So, I think we'll be okay, but thanks for the offer.

100. Ha. Last week it was 107 in my fridge...

Seriously, once it gets past 90...it's just HOT, humidity or not. (rhyme unintended)
