    That works for me. I am avoiding going to bed because I'll just be waking up every 10 minutes from the heat. I need to be up early. There's a problem here.

    Clearly you should shamble to the beach, strip of your clothes and curl up on a damp, dank and fetid rock and sleep.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 31,970 ✭✭✭✭ Sarky


    They all dried out :(

    I have to sit on a train for 2.5 hours this evening in this heat...
    I was on 3 trains to-day, 2 quite long journeys and a short one ...

    They were the new ones though, and the AIR-CON WORKED ON ALL THREE!! :eek:

    They were actually very cool and pleasant!

    What on earth has happened to Irish Rail?! :confused::confused:

    It's actually the humidity that gets to me, I cope grand with dry heat ...

    I've been able to keep the outdoor activities to a minimum, but Terminator Salvation must be seen today. And there's no sun cream to put on my head. And it's too hot to wear my beanie.:mad::(


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,422 Tirabaralla


    Baseball cap?


    Am I forgiven if I love the sun? My blood is too mediterranean not to love it.
    Forgiven? Eh? Yes, right? ^_^

    *looks out window* Oh good another cloudy, somewhat chilly day. We had a frost warning the other night actually. Should the evil sun return I shall be retiring to my basement to sleep.

    Got burned, then a bit of tan...had to train and play a hurling match in it so far, with another match tonight. Sleeping...what is that? humidity is too much:( Drinking at least 3 and 1/2 litres of water a day now, along with 3-4 portions of fruit to stay cool:)

    Weather is meant to get a bit cooler from today, it might help somewhat...

    Might not be so stuffy when the beers come around, and as it turns out i cant go yet again...have to keep cash aside for Planetlove on Sat:(

    At least i got to stay in a nice cool cinema on Sunday while loving every minute of Drag Me to Hell:D

    I have retired to a Server room with dual aircon and no windows to escape the heat and rays.

    The IT office has a wall of full length windows facing the sun?!?!?!

    Yeah, that's gonna be real healthy for the sensitive equipment.


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,228 ✭✭✭ Crumble Froo


    quite easy for me, really. it's winter here. ski season's officially started too, actually. but ive actually taken to, while at work, following my boss to the outside door for her fag, cos there's actually sunlight there - and NO i dont love it for its light... it's the bloody warmth. i never know if it's sunny or raining or snowing or light or dark from my office. no bloody heat in the thing. just stay in there all day and you miss the sun easy enough.

    after that, it's dusky by 5pm, entirely dark by 6. im up in the mornings at 6.30 and it's dark too, sun's starting to rise when im heading to work at 8.
