Call me crazy, but I think I am one of those Texans that absolutely hates the Summertime.

Yes, I am not a fan of Summer. When a Texas Summer can reach over 100* every day, all you want to do is sleep in a tub full of ice. It’s too hot to do much of anything outside without being drenched in sweat. Even Zeus and that kitties complain that it’s too hot. I guess if I had fur, I would too.

Then again, I do look forward to a few things every time Summer tolls around. I love the 4th of July fireworks. They’re so beautiful against the Texas sky on a hot Summer night. I also enjoy getting into water fights against Manders with the water hose. EVERY Summer, we have water fights and have been doing so since we were little. It’s a great way to cool off and it’s super fun! We end up getting soaking wet but it’s a small price to pay for family fun!

Other than that, I prefer to stay somewhere there is an air conditioner. If I have to go out, I always have shorts, flip flops, and sunglasses on. I live for the day I can wear flip flops once again. I would wear them 365 days out of the year if I could. I know it’s not exactly stylish but when the temperature reaches 110* in August, you can’t exactly go out in public in your skivvies.

I am counting the day until I can put away the shorts (keeping the flip flops) and put on a sweater. I live for the Fall Season and even though it’s not even June yet, I cannot wait until the first cool front comes through to make my body send chills down my spine and my nose tingle with the scent of Fall. Maybe that’s something to look forward to.

Too hot! May 13, 2009

I know Twin has already posted about this, but now it is my turn!

Is it just me or does it seem to be getting hot a little too early here in Texas? Forget the fact that it isn’t even in seasonal temperatures! It’s not even summer and we are hitting 90’s as a high! That is entirely too early to be getting that hot! We are even having heat indexes in the triple digits! I am not kidding! The house is hot and therefore, everyone else is hot. Zeus pants to cool himself down and the poor cats try everywhere to find a cool place to nap. I even gave Smokie a bath (besides fleas) to cool her down! She hated it but didn’t do as bad as she did one time: escape the bathroom and trek soap and water all over the house.

I expect this kind of weather come June into July, but not when it’s the middle of May! 80’s, sure. If you ask me, that’s seasonal! I would gladly welcome any 60’s or 70’s for the day! But not 90’s! We aren’t prepared! We have one air conditioner in the bedroom and one in the living room. I don’t think we even had a Spring! We hardly had any Spring storms, and hardly had any rain.

I know I shouldn’t complain because there isn’t much I can do about the weather. But c’mon- it’s way too hot for May and with mediocre air conditioners working full-time, it doesn’t help! You just want to fill the bathtub with ice water and sink into it. You just want to run around in your skivvies just so hot clothing doesn’t touch your sweaty skin. You just want to stand in front of an open freezer door for an hour or two.

I am not looking forward to this summer. Nope, I surely am not!

Thanks to Manders, I am now following a fad. Oh you means, beside Twitter? I’m the one that started the fad within my family.

But I am currently reading the first book of the “Twilight” series. Manders wanted to read it to see what all the fuss was about. Now she knows. She eventually asked me to read it. I thought “Oh great, I am following a fad. I hate fads.” but to much of my surprise, the first book is so far good! Granted, I am only on Chapter 6. I would fall in love with Edward too! Something about being a Vampire and stealth is sexy to me. I checked out the 2nd book from the library as well so I can read it when I’m done with the first.

I also check out “Chicago” and “Now and Then” from the library. Both of them happen to be one of my favorite movies! I tend to lean towards musicals every once in a while (don’t act so shocked!) so I knew I would automatically love “Chicago”.  And Renee Zellwegger is one of my favorite actresses. Not to mention the soundtrack and music is just awesome! I even have some of the songs on the old iPod. Love iPods. I like “Now and Then” because I used to watch it when I was a teenager because Mom would watch it. It’s just a funny little movie where you can escape to another time and place.

Oh yea, and obviously, even though computer screens, people can tell we’re twins. Conley Isom, a meteorologist from KXXV (the place I went before. Remember from “My awesome memory!”?) is following both me and Manders on Twitter. I don’t know what my sister said, but Conley asked who her sister was. She said me. He replied with “I thought ya’ll were sisters!”. So me and the twin are either so memorable, we resemble each other. Or people can just tell no matter what. That was very cool!

I wish it wasn’t 90*. It’s too early to be too hot. I’m going to take a cold shower.

No, I’m not going to post the WHOLE DVD video. That might make you watch 15 minutes and never come back. But there are 2 parts of the DVD that I found side-splitting hilarious (though all of it makes me laugh until I wanna barf.).

This is not intended to offend anyone. Only to brighten your day!
