    foxbins - I also lol'd at your post yesterday.

    Hot here also. I already went running and then worked out at home, gave myself a hair cut, a beard trim, a mud mask and a hot shower. Then I doused on a whole bunch of this 80's powerhouse. I'm ready to watch "Wall Street" and put on a gold thick-chain bracelet.

    Making yet another attempt to figure out why I don't love it as I think I should.

    It's overcast and cool, so I'm fitting in a wearing of 24, Faubourg before it heats up next week.
    If you can't smell me from six feet away, I'm not wearing enough.

    Ugh, N.CAL, it's miserable when it gets super hot for days on end.

    I'd say you were a "walk-in closet nerd," ExtremeK -- ya know, classier breed.

    Other than our daughter, no one has visited our house in months and months. Keep this in mind.
    Being it's Saturday afternoon, we had begun our sci fi double-feature ritual. In the middle of "The Last Witch Hunter," we paused the movie to take a potty break. We're both thinking ... maybe it's actually a poo break. Seeing as how we have real-life, separate, adjacent girls and boys restrooms, we each retired to our designated area and settled in when ... the dog started barking. Our renter had mentioned he'd be stopping by this afternoon to pick up one thing and drop off another thing. Oh, gees. What are the odds?

    Now, back to the movie, repeating yesterday's Rose de Mai.
    The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago.

    It was sort of a race. Mr. Q got there first. The incident left me feeling biologically compromised.

    Murphy's Law Quarry. Hilarious...I could just see your face. lol

    The Balenciaga I wore this morning - just wow...it lasted all day. Those 80's masculines...no one makes them like those anymore.

    As an after thought I'm wearing Shalimar Eau de Cologne...just because I needed extra comfort & snuggliness.

    If you're home is well insulated like mine the heat will linger a few days after the heat spell dissipates. For me it's a double whammy! I'm expecting more than a few sleepless nights.
