|10:00 pm - I'm too lazy to come up with a witty post title|
Melbourne Weather >:(
I know I said a while back that I was looking forward to Egypt because it'd be a cool change compared to here, but there's something seriously wrong about a universe in which this is actually true.
I mean, four 40+ degrees Celsius days in a row? The hottest week in 100 years? DO NOT WANT.
Today was bad enough, and it was only high 30s (and I was inside shopping centers for most of the day).
But yeah, finished last minute shopping for Egypt type things. Important things like comfy sandals. And less important things like a back-up Sudoku book.
Which leaves tomorrow for packing, which ought to be ...interesting.
At least I can sleep in.
Incidentally, why is shopping so tiring? It's not like you're doing anything particularly energetic.
Current Mood: hot
Maybe we could average the two out. That would be nifty.
There is something wrong with the universe right now.

At least you get to stay inside. I decided to be a
chump Samaritan and help a friend with her morning schoolbus route while her reg. assistant is in the hospital. The same weather, except I get to wake up at 4am, babysitting a bunch of whiny brats and - o hai - it's starting to snow again. *cries*
I don't know if that makes me feel better or worse about the heat.
God my parents used to live in Melbourne. Whenever I went to see them it was never that hot. What is wrong with the world?
Oh happy belated Australia Day and all.
*shrugs* Global Warming?
Can't say I did anything particularly patriotic this Australia Day.

Despite all my pissing and moaning, I actually can tolerate the cold better than I can the heat, so it's you I feel for more. The last time I was in weather as hot as yours there was at least booze and gellato to take the edge off (Vegas baby).
The heat's actually liveable if you are somewhere with air conditioning.
It's only when you are doing anything remotely energetic that it sucks horrendously.

There's supposedly a heatwave coming in today as it's supposed to get up to -3°C this afternoon. yay. Although right this second, thanks to the wind chill, it feels like -28°C.
