It’s been over 100°F where I live in LA this past weekend and conveniently my living room a/c is broken leaving only the one in my bedroom. The problem of course is that an a/c in a separate room isn’t enough to cool the rest of the apartment. Uni and Ebi seemed pretty unaffected by the heat but I still worried about them. I assumed they’d go to where it was cooler in the apartment but for the vast majority of the time they preferred to be where I was. Awwwwww…

I think since last Saturday it’s been 100° F or over and will be through Tuesday or Wednesday. Sufficient to say that my a/c has been getting constant use and for the first time since I moved into my apartment complex I’ve actually seen people using the pool. I was pretty happy that I made it through the Summer without having to constantly blast the a/c since I heard stories about how hot it can get. But this is making me think that it’s too soon to celebrate that victory.
This weekend I found out some more about Los Angeles’ weather from some friends of mine. Apparently Summer isn’t a June-July-August thing. It goes into September and possibly October and in some cases November. So apparently there are several months ahead of me where it could potentially be getting hotter each month. Visiting San Diego is starting to make some more sense. I still can’t imagine going down there just for a day or two to get to better weather but I understand more now. Also yes, dry heat feels like a hot oven or putting your hands to a fire.
I haven’t opened my balcony door until now because even though I know there’s a screen on it I was paranoid that the cats would either claw it or try to open it. So far so good though and it makes a significant difference at night time when heat has just been slowly building up in my apartment while outside it’s gone down to 60-70 degrees.
Yesterday and today are the hottest days of the year so far and it’s only May. I’d like to believe it won’t ever get hotter but what I do believe is that this Summer is going to be HOT.
Whenever I go out and take a walk that’s going to be maybe 20-30 minutes long I have to make sure that I have water with me. Even with the water though, I get super faint and feel like I’m going to start seeing mirages. Yay Souther California weather…
OH and BATTLEBLOCK THEATER IS OUT ON STEAM TODAY!!! 😀 I’ll post the launch trailer here as soon as it’s up on YouTube.
If you didn’t play it on Xbox 360 this is definitely the version to get. The textures are significantly less compressed so the artwork looks even better. While doing capture for the Steam trailers I was noticing details I never noticed before on the Xbox version. Also the cutscenes I animated are now at full 1080p! There’s also a new video loop for the main menu that I did with a friend of mine that I’m actually quite proud of. We managed to stick in a lot of fun tricks people might not know you can do in the game.
The West coast is getting some crazy heat right now but I haven’t caved into using the a/c just yet. When it’s just myself then I’m even more reluctant to bother turning the a/c on. If I thought that it was becoming super unpleasant for the cats then I’d turn it on in an instant though. They’ve been hanging out in the bedroom the past couple days because it feels like it’s 5-10 degrees cooler than the living room area.
Actually if you’re reading this on the day it was posted then the temperature in NYC should be around the 80s, but most of the weekend and last week was in the mid to high 90s if not 100s. We have air conditioning but our bathroom we had the window open which meant that it was at least as hot in there was it was outside. Later we realized this was silly so we just closed the window and opened the door to the bathroom and it didn’t feel like the armpit of our apartment anymore.
Last week we got some popsicles from Sunrise Mart and even though the cashier was nice enough to give us a bag of ice to prevent the popsicles from melting too much, I think they had melted and refrozen before they were even in our hands. Though unlike the Reese’s chocolate, these refroze in their original shape. The only issue being that the syrup had shifted such that the top and side rim of each popsicle was just ice.
Oh and the title of today’s comic is just a small reference to the Xbox Live Arcade game Bastion which I finished my second play through of over the weekend. If you like action RPGs, beautiful artwork and a good story then I’d very much recommend it. I’ll post a full review once I’m finished with it to my satisfaction. I think I’ll probably beat it one more time and try to challenge myself with its arenas.
I was at a Duane Reade yesterday because we were finally going to go see Super 8 (it was great!) when I was looking at the Reese’s minis they had on a display at the cashiers. I hadn’t seen them in the wild but I’ve been curious because I’m a fiend for small peanut butter cups. As soon as I picked it up I could feel that the whole bag’s worth had melted and then solidified in the arctic temperatures of the Duane Reade air conditioning. I was kind of curious, but decided not to buy them.
Yep, it’s pretty hot over here right now. Luckily I don’t have kung fu class Friday, but it’s still going to be really hot on Saturday when I do. It’s a good thing that it’s only July because that means we still have an entire month of potential record breaking heat.

Actually I do the comforter hug where at most half of my body is underneath. Then I let my asleep self decide whether it’s too hot or cold by moving the comforter as needed.
