Not so fun in the sun

It's way too hot. Stepping onto the sidewalk makes you instantly feel like an ant under a magnifying glass. You wonder if you're going to make it all the way to the grocery store or the blessedly air-conditioned mall without bursting into flames. I might cave in and set up the air conditioner tomorrow if this continues.

Demi and Cosmo the cat are here for the week. Demi's having fun, but Cosmo is absolutely terrified of Sophie and spends a good deal of time hiding from her. She mostly just ignores him. Last night, though, she hopped onto a pillow he was resting on and nearly gave the poor guy a heart attack.

The Taste of Edmonton event is on right now, and although there are a couple of vegan offerings (which I think is an all-time record), I'm not too impressed. It's not so much a treat for epicureans as it is a treat for people who like to snarf their food while standing in an elbowing mob of sweaty strangers, listening to mediocre-to-bad classic rock cover bands.

The heat is horrible - I agree. We have a breeze today, which is more than I can say for yesterday. But I got out to the lake so it's all good. This is supposed to go on for about a week...Grrrr...

It's sposed to turn hot here this week too. We've been spoiled by all the nice cool weather. :(

Poor Cosmo doesn't understand that Sophie's best friends are cats. What happened to Bandit?

Your aversion to "booth food" must be inherited. There's something about it that just turns my stomach. The only thing I've ever eaten from a booth is a snow-cone.
