Monday's musings

It's summer time so naturally it is hot outside especially when you live in the desert like we do in Boise. So I got that going for me on Monday, it's hot outside. Our dress code at work is business professional so I have to wear khakis, dress pants, etc. and a button-up shirt. So to recap it is hot outside because Boise's founding fathers decided the desert is a great place to live and I have to wear clothes that are not summer-friendly and generally don't hold up well when small animals are bursting into flames outside. Continuing onward with my "I Love Monday" speech, my office is doubling as a sauna as my c0-workers and myself are marinating in our own juices at an uncomfortable 83 degrees. If I was a turkey my little built-in thermometer would have popped out by now. This bird is done, come and get it. The AC appearantly is taking a long weekend and is not coming back to work until tomorrow. We are on the second floor and the windows do not open. I really love it when I stick to my desk and I have sweat running down the crack of my ass. That's a pretty picture isn't it? To help alleviate this problem we have 7 little fans running trying to cool us down but it feels more like I am on an airport runway preparing to board a puddle jumper.
So in summary it is very warm outside and if I had a choice I would be wearing shorts and my flip flops to better blend in to my environment but I am at work so I have to wear my fancy pants which is normally fine but today it kind of blows because my office has no AC and a rat who just got busy with another rat in a wool sock had to cancel his visit to our office because he said it was way too hot.
I am going mad, the heat is getting to me.

Ha! You think you have it bad Shif!
Perth, Western Australia is also situated on reclaimed desert (think dry LA etc). I have to teach 22 stinking sweaty 15 yer olds on a 40 degree celsius day (approx 105?? f) in a closed up classroom during our mid summer!!!

And no, we don't get the day off cos of the heat.

The thing is, the kids and staff are USED to it!

In the paraphrased words of Crocodile Dundee
"That ain't heat...now THIS is heat!"

Hi, I was out blogging and found your site. It certainly got my attention and interest. I was looking for under wear information and even though this isn't a perfect match I enjoyed your site. Thanks for the read!
