Boiling in California

I know I'm spoiled because I live in California and the weather usually stays under 80 degrees, but when it rises above the 80 mark I become miserable.

I do not own an air conditioner, both of my employers do not own air conditioners and I'm stuck with one crappy fan to keep me cool.  I feel awful for my plants and 3 cats who are stuck in the house.  What blows the most though is how I cannot go anywhere because traffic is backed up for miles to the beach and it effects all the major freeways.

What did I do today; turn on the fan to blow the hot air out, watch South Park, try to go somewhere cool with air conditioning, cleaned my house when I returned, watched more South Park, took a shower, went out for ice cream and lastly I watered my wilting plants.

No wonder the Native Americans moved to the ocean or hills during the summer, it's freakin hot!  I'm sweating while I'm just sitting here writing, I'll be surprised if I haven't lost weight from sweating.

My boyfriend did order a pool, thank god, it's just a little kiddie pool, but it will be nice and cool in our backyard and I don't care if I turn into a prune.

At least my tomatoes are starting to come in and I probably don't have to worry about the watermelon too much if the heat stays up.

Father's Day is going to be a pain in the butt though because it's just so freakin hot, where can we go? The beach is out, the city is going to be packed, anywhere with air conditioning is going to be a nightmare.  I know it will all be fine, but I'm just cranky because of the heat.

I feel like I didn't do anything productive today, but how can you in the heat.  Lions don't even hunt in the day, so I'm going to follow suit and move about at night.
