Whinge

This weather brings out the worst in me. I hate it. Anyone who states 'the hotter the better' should be shot in the head.

Trying to exist in 43 degree heat (celcius not fareinheit my North American amigos) is near impossible and bloody frustrating.  My hair is as frizzy as Yahoo Serious's do from the eighties and I feel about as sexy as a road fatality with cascades of sweat running down my face and body. Frocking up has become a nightmare and putting make up on is almost not possible due to said Niagara Falls on my face and the heat melting my cosmetics.

The only way to sleep is wrapped in a wet towel with the fan on you after downing several troughs of beer or/and cider. I drank 2 bottles of Monteith's apple cider (bloody lovely BTW) and it did fuck all. I think I just passed out due to sheer exhaustion.

Today is another 40 degree ball buster and I won't be leaving the building until much later when I hope the temperature has dropped 15 degrees and we hopefully have torrential,tropical rain.  What a treat I'm gonna look in my red & white polka dot dress,cycling home-rain soaked... I can't think of anything better.

Just pray I don't get barbequed by lightning.

It must have been that and more at mine.
If it happens again, I'm filling the bath with ice and packing myself in it.

sounds like a plan Mags. Even sleeping nude in front of the fan did not help enough

Hopefully by bedtime, the cool change will have come and we can open all the doors and windows. I dream of a cold blast ripping through the house. I will fall asleep and not hear a thing!

I agree on the cool wind.. It will be very welcome.

I remember back in 1998 when I was living in Canada-we had a week of 30 below zero. I dream of that!

dam buster said...

wowsa that is incredible.

I cannot believe that.. You were in Canada? he he only kidding.

I cannot imagine how cold that would be.

Margarita Milonguita said...

Very but I loved it!
They are prepared for it.

dam buster said...

Well you would have to be wouldnt you.. Certainly would be more suitable for staying inside or your eyeballs would freeze if you went out....

My eyelashes froze one night- it was the weirdest feeling.I kid you not!
It was so cold I had cuts on my hands that didn't heal till I got back to Melbourne.
My big toe was numb for a couple of months as well. At least I had a white Christmas and that was pretty spesh...

dam buster said...

That is offically cold.

Margarita Milonguita said...

It was.. but it was great to do snow angels..

dam buster said...

I bet the snow would be awesome in such conditions. I thought a few -7 or so where i grew up was cold enough.

Margarita Milonguita said...

I was born in Winnipeg and is renouned for being cold like Melbourne. The rest of Canada call it Winterpeg. I guess I was just born with the snow in my bones and never liked the warm weather.
I've never got used to it and have always loved cool cold days/nights and adore it when it rains.

So for Aussies, anything below 20 is freezing for them!

dam buster said...

So you are Canadian?? (I wont hold that against you)

Margarita Milonguita said...

No, I'm Australian. I was born in Canada.
Actually I consider myself a citizen of the world.
Fark this patrotism to one country thing!
