The Power of Heat

I could expound on the different types of heat... dogs in heat... the Miami Heat... a race heat. Our little part of California's Central Coast was abnormally warm the last few days. With normal being 65 degrees, 110 is a tad out of character, leaving the majority of us to swelter and do odd things like affix heavy blankets to large windows with packing tape to keep out the HEAT.

Yes, heat brings out the white trash in all of us. (Except those living in the model homes, where the builder installed A/C.) Some of the amazing powers of heat:

Evidently soccer balls that are accustomed to 65 degrees don't fare too well when things pop into the triple digits. The kids thought this was the coolest thing EVER.

Heat brings the lovely little outdoor creatures inside to co-habitat with us. In our kitchen. With our food. And, this morning, in my dishwasher where they died a perilous death. Yes, those black dots are ants. I hate ants. Hate them. Ants. Hate them. Although, they are rather mesmerizing if you crouch by the counter's edge and observe their ways.

Heat also makes some of us forget our fashion sense, and others of us forget our manners and take pictures of the ones with lost fashion sense. The picture doesn't show the offense as proudly as it was displayed in person. But if you look around this poor girls hips you can see a disparity between the white tank top under her dress and the rest of her dress. PLEASE remember that if you're going to wear white under white, you need to do it under the ENTIRE item of clothing. The other option is to wear nude underpinnings, or none at all. (You think I'm joking. I'm not.) A see-through-y dress is only made more see-through-y when you make 1/2 of it not. Does that make sense?

I totally agree. There is nothing worse that seeing polka dots before your eyes...

But I win, A woman in the store I was in today was wearing a very undersized matching tank and short set. Yes, it was Baby Phat, but there is a limit...Stacy London where are you!!!

Perhaps the lady in the snazzy white dress was inspired by your new cooling/economic window treatment!

Long live the Bundies!

For some people it's snakes. But I, in all my glory, freak out with the common ant. Refuse to see them. We found the most wonderfulest product. Ever. Home Defense. Spray it around your house- I do inside and out for super protection- and you won't see moving things in your home. I haven't had a sighting in forever:)
