Cranky from the Heat

It is going to be nearly 80 degrees here today. Yesterday, we were forced to turn the air conditioner back on. Air conditioning. In October. Grrrrr.

This is the time of year I look forward to most. Crisp, cool air. The turning of the leaves. More apples than you know what to do with. It is during this season that I am the busiest in the kitchen, but turning on the oven is just a cruel exercise.

Just a little more than a week ago, it was 90 degrees. 90!! In October. Instead of wearing turtlenecks and sweaters, I am in t-shirts and capris. Blech. We had a brief reprieve temps in the 60s and low 70s for nearly ten days. Now we are back to this. It is making me cranky. Last night Corvus and I were ready to pack up a moving van with everything we could fit and just leave this city behind. But reason took hold and I came into work today (let us not even discuss the levels of torture that exist here).

Anyway, we are currently making our way through The Sopranos again, where we are in the middle of Season 5, which is when David Lee Roth shows up in one of the high stakes poker games. Awesome. In addition to that, I recently rewatached the NewsRadio episode where Bill gives Dave a copy of David Lee Roth’s Crazy from the Heat, hence the title.

I have nothing constructive to say, just that I can’t wait for the next two weeks to fly by and deposit me in Portland for a reprieve. Even if it is only for a few days.

    Yuck! 80-90 degrees in October is wrong, wrong, wrong! Stupid Al Gore, had to go and invent stupid global warming. 🙂

    Do pack a cozy sweater or two for the visit, and your thermal PJs. We had to give in and turn on the furnace last night when I noticed the tip of Modhran’s nose had gone remarkably icicle-like. Today we’re having lashing rain and gusty winds–lovely to watch, from inside!
