85 degrees

Our local time is 4:36 PM and our temp. is 85 degrees. I have to say Mr. Global warming, though I despise everything you stand for, today - well, I might have a bit of a crush on you. I'm dizzy with glee from the sunshine sweetly kissing over my face today and after a week of gloom (California term for rain) this sunshine is greatly appreciated.

My 45 minute drive to school was wondrous, the sunroof open and Blondie blaring from the speakers - almost made me want to ditch school tonight and drive to the beach. If I didn't have a presentation on Phonics, who knows where the freeway would have taken me.

OK - class is ready to start - Good bye from sunny, warm California :-)

What is your favorite warm weather music/song?

85 degrees? I think I hate you.

Io - This will help, we have some of the highest priced unaffordable housing and a bodybuilder turned bad actor as our Governer.

Trust me when I say the grass is always greener.

We should do a house swap - especially around Fall/Winter?

An Addendum - Our nickname for where we live - Surface of the sun. It's MISERABLE here for most of July and all of August. We are 60 miles east of Los Angeles and about 40 west of Palm Springs. Oh, the best part - growing up we had smog days instead of snow days but we still had to go to school however P.E. and recess were not allowed.

Why Am I living here? Oh yeah - family, good friends, we just bought our first home (FINALLY) and the occassional sunny day in February.

Favourite summer song: (that's actually a difficult question) I think it would be Girl's just wanna have fun!

I am so jealous. Lets swap weather lives?

I think you got it right with Blondie ... "Heart of Glass" just seems to be the perfect song for summer. I also think of "I Want Candy" by Bow Wow Wow. Probably not the most - ahem - appropriate song ... but it's probably because I always think of the video. ;P

But dang ... 85 degrees? AND the ocean close by? If I had that, I wouldn't need to talk about grass being greener!

Yeah...I suppose it is cheap to live here and it is near our family. (Of course, being near family can be bad too.) We could do a house swap, but ou might want to wait until we move out of the ghetto! Autumn here is really gorgeous.
And our governor used to be part of the Bush administration. So he's not so great either...

Io- Hope A is feeling better today! Keep us posted on the bar results. I have a feeling good things are around the corner for you guys!

If you ever want to come visit - you and A are welcome!

Grrrr. Growling at you now. I miss the Texas winters, which, as I recall, were not too different from the SoCal winters. I loved LA...
