Minnesota is currently 92, dew point 82, feels like 115.

It literally feels like being in a sauna. My clothes were damp with sweat after walking 200 yards.

The worst part for me is that I'm stuck running on the treadmill, which I hate. Boo.

I never realized before moving to CA that upper 80's could actually be considered enjoyable. This weather can't be for real.

Heh

I heard the song last night, and that line seemed appropriate to my work situation.

We spent some time in Sonoma County on our recent vacation and I was reminded how much I adore California weather! Upper 80's and lower 90's felt like heaven compared to the same temperature and the oppressive humidity that accompanies those temps here in VA. When hubby finally retires, California - here we come!!!

We live in Sonoma county and I keep waiting for the other shoe to drop. Certainly weather this nice doesn't actually exist?? At least I had no idea it could having lived my entire life on the east coast with humidity that will make your sweat feel like it's sweating.

I will say I miss rain which from what I hear is rare here and thunderstorms just don't happen.

I think they have a bit of a rainy season in the winter months. I didn't know that about no thunderstorms.

Sweat feeling like it's sweating......hehehe.

Only 29%? How does that make your curls act?

I just had two extra nipples cut off my stomach today, and it hurts like heck now. They showed up about 5 years ago and I thought they were moles. Very recently, they developed further, and there was no mistaking what they were. I felt so awesome...or not.

Now that I'm inspecting myself, I see that there could be other suspects. I hope they don't pop out and mature like these did. I blame my birth control pills...

Your post has incredible timing! I just this second closed out of an article about a 22 year old woman who has a fully formed nipple on bottom of her foot.

I never hear about extra nipples and now I've heard about 3 in less than 3 minutes. Incredible!

I'm more a wavy than a curly, I think if I lived in a more humid area & had a curly cut, I might make it to 3a, but I don't know for sure.

It does make my routine very easy.. co wash, condition, a little leave in, air dry, ta dah!!!

I saw a couple walking and they each had a snake around their neck. WTF, since when is a snake a piece of jewelry.

I have an extra nipple. I've always had it, since birth. My mother has one in the same spot, and so does my sister's daughter. I didn't think they just "popped" up, but rather are there at birth, as a vestigial trace of the mammalian ridge (or milk line)...a leftover from our human evolution. Are you sure you didn't always have them, and maybe the birth control pills just made them more prominant?

I've been on BC pills and have had 4 babies, and neither artificial hormones nor pregnancy hormones have caused any change in mine. It's a tiny thing, so I've always just left it alone. I don't think they are dangerous or malignant, but can be unsightly if they are large.

Wow! I think that's fascinating.

The hair on my arms is longer than it used to be, but no extra nip-nips that I can see.

I will admit, I'm one of those loonies. I love it hot and humid! My husband is like you and hates it.

DDHSJKFFJAKKFLRIHVDNXIDTIQPNXNCOPKHHGJBBXGFFFKFHHX KDU!!!!!!!!!

WTF? I left exact directions for the ****ing gazpacho and when I blended it today and tasted it, no salt (most important part of ****ing marinating a gazpacho), no vinegar, no olive oil. REALLY?!!! And upon questioning I get "well, he put in the liquid" and "you left him the recipe. Did you leave me the recipe? No!" Are you ****ing kidding me? You ****ing work together. I left you both the recipe, which is already more than I should have to do for you guys in the first place. You've both made the gazpacho, right? What, is my memory the only one that works on this ****ing station? Nobody noticed when putting it away that the vinegar and oil which are always visible and separate in the mix weren't there?

This after earlier today I got a "he cut carrots for this task instead of this because he thought that's what you meant; you didn't make it clear enough" even though we already had the carrots done for that task. Nobody has eyes? Really?!!!

I had new woman zest 25 limes for a dressing and then juice them. I showed her three times how to zest a ****ing lime, asked her if she was left-handed because she had the microplane in her right hand. No. Okay, hold it with you left, lime in your right. Nods, continues to hold in right hand. Explain many times that you are moving the lime across the rasp, continues to scrape the microplane across the lime. Show her the motion, slowly. Continues to do it backwards. Explain that it's very sharp, so you need to go nice and easy. Continues to scrape hard. Explain you only want the green, continues to scrape once all the zest is gone. Come by once more and explain that she is getting pith and that the microplane is sharp, so go easy. Chef takes at least five ****ing minutes explaining how to zest a ****ing lime. She ****ing cut the limes longitudinally to put them in the press. No wonder she only got a minuscule amount of juice. Upon seeing them and questioning, says that's how she always cuts them. Really? You've gone your whole ****ing life not cutting citrus across the equator like you should if you want to ****ing juice them?????

Everything good to go for dressing. Where's the zest. "What?" The zest. Confused look. The lime zest. Make zesting motion. "Oh!" Points to microplane. No, what you did with it. Confused look. WHAT YOU WERE DOING! The peel? You mean the rinds? No, the zest. Guy on prep says "the lime zest". "Oh, that's what that's called?! I threw it out." Why? "I thought it was to juice them." WTF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Why would I have you zest 25 limes before juicing them if I just wanted to juice them?!!!!!!!! WTF!!!!!! This is not about kitchen experience. You are so dumb. You are really dumb. For real.

Yesterday I had her pick and wash parsley for me. It took forever. Then I told them she had to spin it. "You mean just spin it around?" No, put it in the spinner to dry it. Oh!
When I finally got it, it was still wet. And bruised because she clearly wrung it with a towel.
Today she was using the small spinner which is missing its lid to spin some julienned scallions. She was using her finger to make the bowl of it go around. I can't even. This was right after the gazpacho incident with the other two cooks.
I explain to her that that won't work and that it's missing its lid, so use one of the other two (large, restaurant kitchen) spinners. Point to the table with the two large, brightly colored spinners. The only two of anything on the table. Grabs large immersion blender, which I had used a couple of times today to make dressing and the first preliminary blending of gazpacho. That's the blender. Kill me now.
Supposedly no kitchen experience, but catering. What on earth has she cooked that she doesn't even understand the concept of using a peeler to peel carrots. That citrus zest never existed in her world until today. Please shoot me. World, I fear for you if there are more people like this roaming you. Don't let them procreate, please.

Serenity now.

I'm glad you ladies liked my little story about my night. Yes, it is the flirty runner at work, TRBL. I just think he's adorkable. He cracks me up. His Eastern European accent and somewhat limited English (he lives in Poland and like a lot of other people here, works at Sunset Beach every summer; this is his fourth year) adds to the adorkability. He's just so cute when he tells cheesy jokes.
I'm meeting him at the beach tonight. Gonna go make my hair look fab in a little bit.
