I wonder who's left?
*sets water-bomb-laden traps to catch people*
*Walks in. Gets soaked. Groans loudly before turning to trudge back to ship*
Only just got back from my transport duties: Congratulations, Runner!!!
Quite the hot day today. sweltering down here.
of course, the computer/laptop does make it worse.
Whats the temperature there mate? Just hit 45C here......we're roasting...
one of the guys who i work with says its about 42.
but its about 37, according to various websites.
Yeah, the news over here just confirmed the temp as 45 in adelaide. Poor girl.
And on top of this extreme heat, they've closed down our train services for a month (completely city wide) and the buses they bought in to replace them DO NOT have air conditioning.......people are complaining big time. Me? I figure 20 years ago, or less actually, no trains or buses had air con, neither did cars. I remember driving home from work only 17 years ago in 44C without Air Con in my car...windows down. I was raised with none. Dad used to set up fans in teh passage to blow into our rooms at night and that was all we got in the summer.....so when I hear kids of today complaining about lack of Air Con I have to wonder if this generation are a bunch of wimps.
EDIT: Dont feel sorry for me, I cleaned the carpets today and stripped all the beds and washed their sheets/quilt covers. Cooking a roast for dinner....heat is meaning little to me.
I'm 24, and i can tell you we can't live without technology.
I can, i know that. I think its great when you go on holidays, or out to regions where there is no phone service, no computers, or anything like that.
I like my computer, but that's about it. I hardly use my mobile, hardly watch TV and read or sew alot. Oh, did some sewing today as well! Watered the veggie garden and made hot dogs for lunch for the kids! Husband has lay on the lounge complaining about the heat and watching the cricket all day! He's asleep now and I just put the veggies in the oven to be roasted. Its hot....so what?
can't sleep and feel kind of extra warm. I just want to sleep
and you are from where now? judt curious
Shes in the US in the cold, but she's ill.
ah!. makes sense then.
Morning, Guys. It's 25 degrees (F) here. Just found mom and sister are ill.
Feeling any better, Falcon?
And here in the UK it has'ent rained for a couple of days, which is a record for us, especially since it rained all over Xmas
Hope you feel better soon Falcon
Thank you and sorry Falcon.
And Joe? Stay away from them or you are next!!!
I think I actually gave it to them, from my sickness last year/week. In that case, Typhoid Joe is safe.
LOL Typhoid Joe! Thats cute! Careful, this is how nicknames are created around here!!!
not really feeling slightly nauseated. and down another half pound, a bright spot
Some bright spot.
Just went out for a walk here. Below freezing for sure. I don't mind the cold though.
