Dear Diary:

May 30th:

Just moved to Dallas...Now this is a city that knows how to live!!
Beautiful sunny days and warm balmy evenings. What a place!
Watched the sunset from a park lying on a blanket. It was beautiful.
I've finally found my home. I love it here.

June 14th:
Really heating up. Got to 100 today. Not a problem. Live in an
air-conditioned home, drive an air-conditioned car.
What a pleasure to see the sun everyday like this. I'm turning into a
sun worshipper.

June 30th:
Had the backyard landscaped with western plants today. Lots of cactus
and rocks.
What a breeze to maintain. No more mowing lawn for me. Another
scorcher today, but I love it here.

July 10th:
The temperature hasn't been below 100 all week.
How do people get used to this kind of heat? At least it's kind of
windy though. But getting used to the heat and humidity is taking
longer that I expected.

July 15th:
Fell asleep by the pool. (Got 3rd degree burns over 60% of my body.)
Missed 3 days of work.
What a dumb thing to do. I learned my lesson though. Got to respect
the ol' sun in a climate like this.

July 20th:
I missed Morgan (our cat) sneaking into the car when I left this
morning. By the time I got to the hot car for lunch, Morgan had died
and swollen up to the size of a shopping bag and stank up the $2,000
leather upholstery. I told the kids that she ran away. The car now
smells like Kibbles and ****s.
I learned my lesson though. No more pets in this heat.

July 25th:
The wind sucks. It feels like a giant freaking blow dryer!! And it's
hot as hell. The home air-conditioner is on the fritz and the AC
repairman charged $200 just to drive by and tell me he needed to
order parts.

July 30th:
Been sleeping outside by the pool for 3 nights now. $1,500 in damn
house payments and we can't even go inside. Why did I ever come here?

Aug. 4th:
It's 115 degrees. Finally got the air-conditioner fixed today. It
cost $500 and gets the temperature down to 85, but this freaking
humidity makes the house feel like it's about 95.
Stupid repairman pissed in my pool. I hate this stupid city.

Aug. 8th:
If another wise ass cracks, "Hot enough for you today?", I'm going to
strangle him. Damn heat.
By the time I get to work the radiator is boiling over, my clothes
are soaking wet, and I smell like baked cat!!

Aug. 9th:
Tried to run some errands after work. Wore shorts, and sat on the
black leather seats in the ol' car. I thought my ass was on fire. I
lost 2 layers of flesh and all the hair on the back of my legs and
ass. Now my car smells like burnt hair, fried ass, and baked cat.

Aug. 10th:
The weather report might as well be a damn recording. Hot and sunny.
Hot and sunny. Hot and sunny. It's been too hot to do **** for 2
damn months and the weatherman says it might really warm up next
Doesn't it ever rain in this damn desert??
Water rationing will be next, so might $1700 worth of cactus just dry
up and blow into the damn pool.
Even the cactus can't live in this damn heat.

Aug. 14th:
Welcome to HELL!!! Temperature got to 115 today. Forgot to crack the
window and blew the damn windshield out of the car. The installer
came to fix it and said, "Hot enough for you today?"
My wife had to spend the $1500 house payment to bail me out of jail.

Freaking Texas.
What kind of a sick demented idiot would want to live here??
LOL, I can totally feel his pain on the car over heating. I had some trouble with my car doing that when I lived in TX and I once lived in a place that didn't have A/C. But I still loved TX. Guess I adjust better than he does. :D
Dang unknown, it's not the heat, it's the humidity:p :D

but y'all have this available too:D PURRRRRRRRRRRR
Sounds normal to me! ROTFL

Except here in Houston, throw in 75% humidity with the high temps. hehehe

You walk out to the mailbox and have to take a shower.
My ex-boss moved from Westchester to Houston a couple of years ago. She never left her office to go to lunch when I knew her, and she says she never leaves the house unless she absolutely has to now. Won't go anywhere without quick access to air conditioning.

I could never live in a place with that kind of heat. I don't do too well in heat, especially since I got used to icy weather when I lived upstate. I nearly died in Phoenix last fall. I didn't wear a hat for the Busch race on Saturday (see gallery photo), and got really sick for most of the day. The grey hotdog didn't help too much either.
I was literally writhing in pain for 3/4 of the race. My friend had to drive me back to the hotel, where I slept for four hours before I felt better. NEVER AGAIN!!!
