Yes, I *would* like some cheese with my whine.


My lips feel like the bark of this dead tree.
There is not enough ChapStick
in the world
to make me live in Arizona.


This isn't a real post because:

A: it is so hot that my brain hurts and I can't bear to look up the cool things I've seen on the Google right now. (Trees with green trunks, a unicorn chicken, and some alien crop circles, for example.)

B: it's so windy that gritty dust is getting everywhere, especially this keyboard and I am not liking to touch it. (yes, English is my first language, thanks for asking.

4: I am trying to figure out how to get out of acknowledging people that are nice to me by giving me awards. (I'm squinting at you Vanessa and Robyn.)

7b: it is so hot.

We are getting loaded in Superior, Arizona at a place that makes calcium something or other and we aren't allowed to idle to run the a/c and our little a/c is broken and the sun is the devil. The devil. And you have to wear a hard hat to go to the bathroom.

And, I had to take Jas on a walk because she refuses to cross her legs. Did you know that in Boxer math, 10 minutes in 100 degree weather equals 3 bowls of water and 2 hours of heavy breathing? She's such a wuss. I only drank 1 bowl.

  1. We could start a NEW blog award, and call it the White Elephant Award. Or maybe the Hot Potato?

    That little picture of a pink flower does kind of cause anxiety doesn't it?

    You have my total sympathy on the heat. Speaking from the experience of living in a place that turns into a steambath right after we shut our furnaces off. (Sometimes in the same day)

    1. Yes! I don't know why it's so hard to take compliments. And I like the idea of promoting the good blogs out there. And also the possibility that I could one day take over the world as long as I don't have to hear nice things about myself. I'd probably make a good dictator.

  2. Poor Jas. I had to go down 3 quarts of water after watching that video and I'm still feeling parched.

    1. She's pretty pitiful, isn't she? She likes to do most of her loud drinking at 3 am, where 10 minutes of slurping is guaranteed to wake me up make me want to smother her with a pillow.

    1. Hey Lady! ( I just screamed that out like Jerry Lewis)

      Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to comment and the kind words. I hope the future posts I do don't suck horribly now that there is all this pressure. ;)

  4. I had the same thought as Vanessa, but I propose we call it the Unicorn Chicken, because who WOULDN'T want someone to give them the Unicorn Chicken???

    1. Holy Unicorn Chicken, Batman. That is the best idea ever! If only I had gotten a picture of the elusive Unicorn Chicken. I need to get the Science People involved in this.

    1. Thanks JF! It is every mother's dream, isn't it?

      If dog slobber were a relief from the heat, I would be freezing by now. I'm glad to have you riding along!

    1. Hey Marie Nicole! Thank you, that's high praise coming from the Queen of Adventure!

      The Jeannie Bottle thing is funny, even non-girly girls need a girly place to crash sometimes. Thanks for riding along!

  7. Living all the way over here in the sunny tropics, I share your dislike of the heat. I try not to complain too much but sometimes... DAMN!

    1. I know! When did the sun go and get all HOT and stuff?! At least you're surrounded by water, though, something the desert is seriously lacking.

  8. If only the award were an air conditioner or large block of ice. Your dog is very cute!

    1. Ha! She is *pretty* cute, but she is A LOT crazy.

  9. I was just wondering - does curling the tongue help to speed the cooling? If so, she could just skip the H2O.

    Sending some clouds & rain your way (since we have an over-abundance here.) Just sayin'...

    1. She's so dramatic about getting hot. She looks the same way after 10 minutes in 70 degree weather too. I think she was a polar bear in a previous life.

      (today we are in Portland, OR so we are getting plenty of the rain!)
