94 freaking degrees, according to the device displayed by the bank across from K-mart. The device might have been exaggerating a bit, but not by much. Despite the heat, several cricket pairs again spent the afternoon doing the horizontal (or whatever position crickets use) bop in my back yard. chirpchirpchirp. Where do they get the energy? It was all I could do to drag myself back into the shade when I accidentally stepped into the path of the furious, deadly sunlight! I was but moderately burned and recovered in time to go get my head yanked. It went well.

Tonight the moon will be full here, and it's a calender blue moon (the second full moon in a single month.) You may or may not be having a calender blue moon tonight, depending on where you are. This is the second full moon of May in the western hemisphere. In the eastern hemisphere, June rather than May will have two full moons. Earth being round and revolving on its axis makes for much confusion. And I won't even get into the problem of the axial tilt. I'm sure we'd all be better off if Columbus had been wrong and had fallen off the edge. I blame him.

Oh, after nine o'clock. I think the house has now cooled off enough that I can shower comfortably.
