    Hmm, the longer I stay out here, the more I am beginning to envy you wolram. It is getting more humid by the minute, what we need is a good thunderstorm to clear the air:biggrin:

    Alright, no posting in metric/centigrade/celsius. :grumpy:

    Wolram, that sounds miserable, you don't have airconditioning, do you? I finally turned mine on last night.

    Not much better in L.A. I am going right after work to look at portable air conditioners. I've got a feeling this is gonna be an extra hot summer and I'm not gonna spend the next couple of months sleeping with wet towels over me.

    Little units start around $100, well worth it. I can't tolerate heat, I break out in welts, my body temperature and blood pressure drops and I stop sweating, it's dangerous, so it's not even an option for me.

    As soon as I turned on the AC, the fruit bat found a stream of cold air and just stood there motionless letting the cold air hit him for about 15 minutes. Poor thing, he's just like me. We also pigged out on cold watermelon last night. :approve:

    Cold watermelon is a great idea. I was munching on so-cold-they-were-almost-frozen cherries last night.
    My boss has something called a "chillow" for her little dog. http://www.chillow.com Maybe fruitbat would like that? My kittycat is not liking the heat too much either. She looks like a boneless cat puddle sprawled out on the floor.
