HOT Friday Five

Just like everyone else said, its HOT here... and I'll be doing a graveside funeral in cassock & surplice this afternoon. So how can I skip these?

1. What's the high temperature today where you are?
According to my computer this morning, it gonna be 92 degrees... but with vestments, I'm guessing 97!

2. Favorite way(s) to beat the heat.
So... our house has A/C. Except it doesn't really do anything for the bedroom. So, we have moved our comfy pillow-top mattress downstairs into the nice cool living room. Sitting in bed, drinking beers, watching movies (a rare treat - we've outlawed TV in the bedroom as a favor to our marriage) - its quite loverly.

3. "It's not the heat, it's the humidity." Evaluate this statement.
Ah! So true. I've been to Albequerque, in August. Its nothing like the weighty, suffocating, humid air we get up here.

4. Discuss one or more of the following: sauna, hot tub, sweat lodge, warm-stone massage.
Yesterday's trip to the Y included both a hot tub and a sauna - but the second one only because I was curious. I went with Luke and our friend Hans though, and the sauna is single-gender, so I thought it was boring. I highly recommend the hot tub, especially after doing two miles on the treadmill and then kinda learning racquetball. (I know - go me!)

5. Hottest you've ever been in your life
Hmmm... when I was a kid, I was really sick and had a temperature of 104 - I remember, because it was my best friend's birthday and I had to miss her first slumber party.

Non-temperature related bonus: In your opinion... who's hot?
Sorry, the phone's ringing... maybe its Brad Pitt or Jonathan Rhys Myers calling...

Oh boy hope all goes well in the heat, and that you don't die in the heat.

Heh...I tried to learn raquetball once...I kept running into the walls. Something about having warped depth perception and all white walls. Not a good combination.

Hope your service went well
