So yesterday was the day from hell. And I'm pretty sure that I mean that literally. 35 degrees Celcius, and 48 (!!!) with the humidity. Which translates to about 120 degrees Farenheit. I was dying, just trying to get home from work, and my apartment felt like it was hotter than Hell itself. I coulda cried. All red-faced, and drenched, and the picture of despair itself. It was not a pretty picture, let me tell you.

Which is why I thought that I actually *had* died and gone to Heaven, when my best friends (with the air-conditioned car and house) swooped down and plucked me out of my misery. They took me home, and set me up for the night. Now, I would have been happy just being in the cool. And they had stuff that they had to do for the evening. So how great was it for them to say : Here's a MAC laptop for you to use. And here's how you work the TV, and the TIVO-type PVR. And there are some frozen dinners in the freezer, and Diet Coke in the fridge. And you can put your stuff in the guest-room. It was Nirvana, I tell you. Sheer bliss.  I actually got a  full  8  hours of sleep, which would equal about 14 hours for a normal person. *g*

These are wonderful, wonderful people. Not because they shared all their stuff with me, or were thoughtful enough to rescue me. But just because they're some of the best friends a girl could ask for. And I am a lucky, lucky, lucky girl. So I'm back home now, and I'll be heading into work for the evening shift. And it feels like it's going to be better today than yesterday. Let's all cross our fingers that cooler temps will head our way. Because I've got the family coming on the week-end, and I'll need all the help that I can get keeping myself calm, cool, and collected. *sigh* I need a drink... *g*
