Too... hot... to... think...

Today it got to 45.6 degrees people! That's 114 degrees F.

And some parts of the state got to 47.5 (117.5F)!!!

What is going on?

The a/c at work did a beautiful job - it's always too cold in there but today - perfection! Chickie's school, on the other hand, isn't coping so well. Here they are, 2 days into the new school year and they're being advised to either stay home the next few days or only come in the mornings, as their a/c isn't coping. Luckily J has tomorrow off anyway and I'll have my usual Friday off, so that won't be too difficult to manage.

Anyone in the North Hemisphere want some heat? Would be more than happy to pass some on to you!

For those of you who like lolcats...

This from roflrazzi.com cracks me up:

PS: Zazzy, if you're thinking of getting a Roomba - go for it. Frogdancer's comment on that post was pretty close to how I feel about it!

Oh and Stomper - it appears the Lego-less floor means I now have Lego-full lounge... but at least there's no stepping on it in the middle of the night - sounds like Phos has done his fair share of that!

Another year...

Happy new year everyone. Hope you all had a lovely holiday season.

Ours was nice and quiet - a good thing after Christmas 2007's busy one with all my family here (way too hectic for me). New year's was pretty quiet too - I had to work at 7am new year's day.

I received some lovely pressies too - one big surprise from J and Chickie was a robot vacuum cleaner - a Roomba (looks like the third generation one shown in the link there). Normally I am not the person to appreciate whitegoods or household items as personal gifts. This however is like the best thing evah!! It cleans the floors - without me doing a thing (I don't even have to press the button since J and Chickie will be setting it off when they leave in the morning. So I can come home to a nice clean floor!

An added benefit is that all Lego has to be off the floor before they leave (cos it won't care what it picks up!). So not only do I get clean floors but I get Lego-less floors - bonus!
