My brain is melting
I can't stand this heat. I am not leaving the house except to dash out and give my nephew a ride to football. I sit in the house, ready to watch crap on tv. My brain is melting. Of course it is Bush's fault.
The heat, ahhhh, I'm melting here! We even have an air conditioner in one room and I still can't take it. Jo went out today and bought a kids pool to sit in. We put fans in every corner of the house. But do I get relief???? Nooooo. I keep imagining what it would be like to have gone through menopause in New Orleans in 1850, complete with petticoats. No wonder women swooned.
Ok enought whining, there is war going on in the Middle East and I am sure it is much hotter there. Thank God for Jon Stewart in the midst of all this. He makes me laugh about all this crap. He can do such a good job of slapping the Repubs upside the head and still get a laugh. He doesn't translate to the Oscars but he is still a national treasure.
Consequently I can't think, can't write, have read almost everything in the house and feel the need to go sit a theater for a few hours with Keira Knightley complete with kettle corn.
In the meantime, here's a picture from my family party this weekend.
