Heat, however, is an entirely different thing altogether! We're undergoing another heat wave on the East Coast. I'm not sure the news isn't overdoing it a little bit, but there is a chance that temperatures today will be suitable for melting Iridium. (Look it up if you must, but that's hot!)
(Look. It's another one of my really crappy illustrations!)
Well, we're totally prepared here. We went to the grocery store and stocked up on everything yesterday.** We have new discs from Netflix. The gist of this is that we may not leave the house again before Monday. Truth be told, I have no plans to get further than 15' from the air-conditioner aside from sporadic, hastily executed forays to the refrigerator for survival supplies (and frozen smoothies).
So, all of you thieves who follow blogs and Facebook, waiting for someone to announce that they won't be home and that their place is ripe for plunder, you'll just have to keep looking.*** We'll be right here the whole weekend.***
*Why are people so concerned about bread? I never see stories about everyone panicking about the supply of beer and Fritos. Uh...priorities people?
**There didn't seem to be that "stocking up for the blizzard" rush on the store shelves and there wasn't anybody from Channel 7 News waiting to ask us if we managed to get enough ice before the store ran out. Once again...I just don't understand these people's priorities. It's like they're from another planet or something.
***I don't know whether or not our neighbor has anything planned, but they're that annoying out-doorsy type, so it might be worth checking them out. Just sayin'.
****If you are part of a gang of nefarious takers-of-cats, just ring the bell. Teufel's been bugging the crap out of me since 6:00am. He might be available.
