Manual air-conditioning - a fan  
Today poor kiddo had to play soccer and it was over 90 degrees at 10 a.m. HOT. ugh. I don't have a/c because we live not far from the water, so we don't usually need it. But today? I NEEDS IT PRECIOUS. So we took the car and went to the mall and then various other errands, just to mooch off their a/c. Later we're going out to dinner, because I don't want to even walk into the kitchen.

Plus it makes me all sleepy being hot in my house, and uninspired to do anything. (though I think I'll somehow manage to watch DW later. Cuz not ALL fandom can be denied even when it's hot *g*)

I heard Comikaze was horrific too, making everyone wait outside to be broiled? Hopefully you weren't caught in that.

We did wait outside in line for about an hour and a half, but we were in the shade, so it wasn't bad. What was bad was in the afternoon, when we decided to walk to the LA Live Starbucks instead of waiting in the hellish convention center line, and by the time we got there we were DYING. And then on the way back we both finished our iced coffees and were clutching the cups with ice to our faces.

ugh. You have my sympathy. When it's hot here, I do NOT want to face the kitchen. Or cleaning. Or anything that isn't sitting in front of a fan.

Luckily it's supposed to break tomorrow. and it's very dry so at least it's not as horribly hot and humid as it was in Japan. But still. UGH.

You have my sympathy. I really don't like when it gets hot. We lived in West Lafayette, Indiana for 5 years, and that was hot, humid hell much of the year - I enjoy living in Northern Sweden now (latitude = Fairbanks, Alaska).

Do you have a small fan? Because then it works buying a large bag of ice (or two), put them in a large container, preferably metal, and then let the fan blow the air over that. I think that cools the room somewhat.
