Thursday Thirteen Again

Thirteen Things I Like and Don't Like About The Heatwave

1. It's just too hot - too darn hot.
2. But it get's me singing songs from the musicals - it's too darn hot...
3. Drink so much water that my skin looks great.
4. But am a big sweaty beasty.
5. The Tube in a heatwave is just horrendous.
6. As are South West Trains, come on guys, just one day this week I'd like to get home without problems.
7. It's nice to wear pretty, flowing clothes rather than suits and trousers all the time.
8. But why can't I look as fresh and as unconcerned as some other women you see.
9. Leaving the office early because it's just too hot to work.
10. But being too exhausted to enjoy a couple of hours in the sun by the time I get home.
11. Ugly naked guy in the flat opposite the office insists on sitting out on his balcony - this is not a good thing.
12. Wonky sunburn - how come only one of my arms is sunburnt? I look dumb.
13. Nothing better than listening to good music in the summer - current favourite is Nina Simone.

I'm trying not to moan too much about the heat, but I'm sure I would enjoy it more if I was by the pool in Barbados with a cocktail rather than in an office on Gray's Inn Road....

I love Nina Simone too. And I know what it's like to be in a heatwave after most of the year of English greyness. Here, it's raining and cold (very unseasonal for a tropical winter here). When I say cold, it's the low 20s. Enjoy the evenings with Nina and a Pimms with lots of fruit and mint in it for me. Happy TT

It's been pretty hot here too and my AC decided it doesn't want to work anymore.

I know how you feel bout the heatwave.. I hate heat... I always look forward to it's end, even though we have our vacations in the summer and we usually go to Goa in the Summer, but the heat when I have to go to work, especially since my journey is by train... is really horribly suffocating. But I doubt very much your trains are as bad as our.... The crowds make our 10 times worse, esp is summer...

Knitting Maniac said...

LOVE your list! I LOVE London, too!

My TT is up, too.

Karen said...

bleh- I always look melted in the heat, too. tomorrow we are supposed to break, but 100+ today. I won't complain, a storm came in last night & left 400000 people without power, but we're good.

Susie said...

I certainly feel your pain! I'm sooooo ready for October!

My T13 is up if you'd like to drop by.

Reverberate58 said...

The heat is bad this year! We all need some rain to cool us off! And someone needs to tell naked guy he is not the hunk he thinks he is!! Drink more water and sit in a different window to even out your tan!
My T13 is up! I hope you have a terrific Thursday!

Carmen said...

Ah, but I'd much rather have hot than cold. But that's just me. :)

Mama Duck said...

Ha ha ha ugly naked guy. Happy TT, mine's up ;).

Tracie said...

I believe in the cold....that is all I have to say--come quickly winter, please!!

My TT is up!

armywife said...

i think only one arm is sunburnt because of riding in cars/trains/buses etc. its been hot here too but i've been trying really hard to not complain (at least not out loud) since my cutiepie is in the desert with 130F. anyway, great list both pros and cons.

i've posted 13 too at
