The heat, I'm not able.

Way behind on this thread too, all I feel at the moment is apathy and no end in sight to covid this, covid that and covid the fcuking other.

Im spending my time these days in two cities, the desert city where it gets to 45 degrees but the humidity is 10%, thats actually rather easy to deal with, and the coastal city where today it was 38 degrees with 54% humidity, thats a PITA, but in the winter the desert city goes down to 2C at night whereas the coastal one usually never gets below 16C.

Biggest difference between here and Europe is that we have air-conditioning everywhere, and at least in my case I don't pay for electricity so they can stay on 24x7, although we tend to only keep the bedrooms cold at night.

It's also very easy to get a sun tan

And I've just described it! I thought it was great - and definitely not as off-the-wall as some of the things that I've seen in paint threads!


Today has been horrendous. One two hour faculty meeting and 24 individual meetings with the first year undergrads I'm tutoring this term, all with the sun shining through the window and mocking me. Another 32 to get through tomorrow, but now I'm going to forget that and myself and the madra are going to go for a bit of a gallivant across the fields. We may be gone some time...

Went out to walk the mutt and had the pleasure of watching 3 airlines (777/787/A320) running along the sea front practicing for next weeks National Day, sky was too murky for photos unfortunately .

Mutt appeared to be leaking little drops of blood from his penis, so took him to the vet where the poor guy got his penis shaved. It appears that he got bitten by some type of fly so we some ointment for him, also going to have his urine analyzed just to make sure.

Ah, the poor fella with the nudey nob. Who has got the short straw to apply the ointment? Hope his bloods come back clear.
