I hate summer.

Mon 6/11/2007

Technically summer doesn't begin for another 13 days, but we've already had weeks of hot, humid, fetid, crappy weather here in New York. And I'm already totally fed up with it. I think I could live here for the rest of my life and I would NEVER get used to East Coast Summers. BLECH!

I know, I know, I write about this every year. What can I say? I am a total whimp when it comes to humidity. I come from the beautiful humidity-free land of Seattle, and having spent the first 18 years of my life in that climate, I consider this to be totally uncomfortable and unnatural.

Also, I have been sick for the last two days which really sucks. Who gets sick in the middle of summer??? I guess I do... That combined with the heat, and the humidity, and my lack of windows is making me feel pretty miserable these days.

On top of all that, I couldn't sleep last night and I was driving myself nuts thinking about all this ex-girlfriend stuff. Under my breath I muttered "I wish I could just forget all of these memories" and no sooner had the words left my mouth than Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind came rushing back to me. It felt like being punched in the stomach.

Jeez, wasn't I not going to try and not complain in here or something??? I'm going to bed!

Better not come visit me in good ol' Indiana then... humidity is king here... completely awful in the summer. YOu can walk outside for a matter of a minute and be completely soaked. ridiculous.

Andy - Yeah man, I spent four years in Ohio. I'll never forget the first time I got out of the car there, in August. You could DRINK the air!

Jason - I've been to Arizona too. I don't know how you can stand it!

i have a completly unnatural ability: i'm not bothered by the heat.

yeah i sweat and get all sticky and all that stuff, but it never bothers me. not really sure why that is.

I always appreciate the opportunity to drink my air....
Alec, have you read "Tricked" by Alex Robinson?

Zack - My ex-girlfriend Kate was like that too, she just loved the heat. I can't understand people like that!

Stefan - Yeah, OHIO! I read "Tricked" after last year's New York City Comic Con, when I randomly ended up moderating a discussion panel with Alex Robinson and Aaron Renier. Alex's wife gave me a free copy!
