A bunch of clouds spilled over from a northern Pacific weather system today, but they brought no cooling that I could notice. It was ungodly hot again, but as it will get ungodlier hotter starting tomorrow I made an evening trip to the Plaza— probably the last such I'll make for some time. The Goodwill store provided me with an interesting book published by The Onion, The Onion Book of Known Knowledge (183rd Imperial Edition) which, I am sure, once read will make me one of the most knowledgeable people to possess this book. Quite a coup, if I say so myself.

After buying the book I stopped at Trader Joe's to pick up a pint of whipping cream. I bought some strawberries and angel food cake Tuesday, which might be the last I will buy this season. The berries are not looking as good as they did earlier. Strawberry shortcake with whipped cream will be one of the things which I hope will make my upcoming confinement to the apartment by the horrendous heat endurable.

The windows are still closed tonight, and though I've got the thermostat set to a fairly warm 77 degrees it still feels considerably hotter outdoors than it does in here. It feels about eighty out there, and it most likely won't cool off enough to open the windows for at least a couple more hours. I'm going to drink icy drinks and read until then, but I'm not expecting to sleep well. The long range forecast has highs of 96 (which it was today) and above for the next ten straight days, with six days of triple digits. Even after that the highs will remain in the nineties. Most of the nights will be unpleasantly warm as well. I don't think we're going to get a break this summer at all.
