What is up with the humidity???

Being someone who was raised in the desert like air of Los Angeles and having spent a few summers in certain tropical places like Hawaii and the Philippines, I am no stranger to heat and humidity. But I don't know why I was unprepared for the unbearable humidity and heat of this weeks New England Humid Heat Wave. It wouldn't be so bad if there were trade winds like in Hawaii or the Philippines but the air STANDS STILL out here!!! I'm so hot I feel like dying! Ok, I'm exaggerating. But it is damned hot.

Maybe it's because I went from rain rain rain out here in Massachusetts before going out to Los Angeles for a two week visit where it was June gloom gloom gloom and then plopped myself back here on the East Coast to this humid heat hell. I guess I was unprepared. Wow. I couldn't even imagine what it would be like on the T right now. All the crazies could be out in force! I'd hate to be on a train with no a/c like one day a couple of months ago where it got to about 80 degrees unexpectedly and I had the unfortunate luck of getting on a train with no a/c. I could have gotten off and taken another train. But I didn't. I subjected myself to the stifling air and suffered with others too lazy or too hot to take another train. Luckily no stinky people on the train that day. But the fact that it was so damned hot and no one complained about the broken air conditioning on that red line train was pretty interesting. Why didn't I say anything? Too hot. Too lazy. Most likely, too tired.

Anywho... took a break from blogging to go to LA. It was nice but I was bummed that I couldn't lay out and work on my tan. Too cold. I'm turning into the Pasty Philippina!!! Time for some (gasp! dare I say it?) self tanning lotion!!!! EEEEEK!!!

Next post I'll tell you about Nail Clipper Lady. I'm too hot to write anymore. I'm waiting for a thunderstorm to cool off this melting Flip Chick...
