Time to commence "Operation: Punch the sun" I think. 25 degrees in the shade for crying out loud...

Time to start employing "Punka-wallahs" a la "It Ain't Half Hot Mum".

You're showing your age relative to mine I suspect, I have no idea what the hell you're talking about :)

BAHHH!! Damn you, unstoppable passage of time! I curse your non-reversability in all but the best comic-books.

Surely you'd *like* a Punka-Wallah, even if you didn't know what one was??

Perhaps if it was called an iPunka-Wallah....


...I would...

Cheer up Boys,
'Cos the Boys are here
The boys to entertain you.

Ah the good old un-pc days of calling drag artists pooftahs and having white guys blacked up to play Indians.

I'm lucky enough in that where I work theres good AC and the room is kept pretty cool at all times but I can barely stand to be outside for more than a minute at a time, or in bed, or in my room or anywhere that doesn't have AC blasting down on me keeping me at about ten degrees.

That's a REALLY badly designed building...

What if you want to pee out of the window? All you're going to get is get hot-pee, and nobody wants that.

...except if you were like, an eskimo, trapped in a frozen pack-ice type trap, with nothing but your trusty husky to save you. Then you'd be saying something like "uooouuoouoo-iuuuu", which means "Hey, dog, wee on my frozen shackles so that I might escape these bonds and return, with you, to our igloo beyond the tundra" in Inuit.

Hmmm...but the problem with that would be that there are so few words in Inuit, many of which have multiple meanings...oh, and also the fact that you're talking to a dog.

No, you're just in a really badly designed building.

Sounds like a plan, once I've done the shopping, burned off DVDs, reinstalled windows, cleaned my room, done the laundry and finished whatever the hell it is I've forgotten but still have the nagging feeling I should have done.

It isn't the heat, it's the humidity. I was at a barbecue yesterday (INDEPENDENCE DAY! AMERICA! WOOOO!) and it was about 30 degrees and it was pretty comfy.
