Summer appears to be over. Wearing shorts anyway. Shorts of denial.

    Ha! That's what you get for living in SF.
    Here, in good-ole-boy country, summer has yet to begin! We can expect heat and humidity through the middle of August. (Yee-Haw!)

      Heat and humidity through the middle of August? What, are you from Michigan?

      • simoncion says:

        Neh, Northern Alabama!
        It's great! Really! (...not really...)

        • sir_bissel says:

          Can't be much worse than southern Louisiana... right? Right???

            I always liked this (incredibly accurate) passage from Tom Robbins's Jitterbug Perfume:

            Lousiana in September was like an obscene phone call from nature. The air -- moist, sultry, secretive, and far from fresh -- felt as if it were being exhaled into one's face.

            Much of the south feels like that in summer. Blech!

              Even after having spent many summers in places like Texas, Biloxi and South Carolina, I still never got used to the humidity. It's like a giant outdoor sauna.

              I'm convinced I'll have to move to Montana to escape the Gulf of Mexico.

    It'll get hot again. And if I liked the heat as much as you do, I would use it as an excuse to spend a week or two in the Caribbean. Even the water is like 85F there! (There are some parts of the Gulf of Mexico that get up to ~90F. And the sand is actually white sand, not this bullshit dirt we've got here.)

    Tragic indeed :~(

    Similarly, I am eating ice cream of denial.

    Don't forget the Wistful Flip-Flops of Waning Hope.

  6. So much for commando. Glad I had a chance
    to get the longjohns into the wash, though.

    I thumb my nose at the weather in all seasons.
    Every Friday is Hawaiian print day.

    I too am still wearing shorts of denial. Maybe, just maybe, if I wish hard enough it will change.

    It's sad to think that even if we bubble-domed the city people would still complain and demand that we turn the climate control down to a foggy 62.

    At times like these I almost go so far as to start envying Oakland.

    It was toasty today in Dolores park. Shirtless weather, even.

    this was especially shocking to me as i arrived in town in 90 degree weather and just a day or so later i was freezing my nads off. fun times, especially when your public transit system shat itself this morning. i can't complain much about that though, where i come from we don't even try to have a working bus system.

    your san francisco climate confuses and bewilders my midwestern sensibilities.

    still, you have nice museums with decent climate control.

    on another note, what happens at the dna lounge on nights where there is no event scheduled?

    I approve of the use of LJ to publish this twitter-like content.

    Someday, you will venture to the east bay, where it will be summer through September.

    We also have good coffee shops & a Burma SuperStar here. :)
