It's About To Get Warm

Hmmmm, might even have to turn the a/c on this week. Either that or jump in the pool. I'll let you decide!

Before I give you the weather forecast, how's about some pics of my new girlfriend? She's giving me the eye... a studly bloke like me can tell :)

Right now the temp is pretty darned nice. A cool 33 C in the shade, a light 48 C in the sun, and the water temp is an icy 29 C.

That will all change this coming week...

Keep in mind, that these are shade temps measured in Celsius and that our place is usually 3 or 4 degrees C higher in the shade than the airport. I figure that the temp in the sun should pretty easily get into the high 50's.

Sigh...

What's a bloke to do?

I'm putting a poll up for some much needed feedback to let me know what all my Alaskan "friends" (and folks from Outside) think I should do during the small heat wave this week.

Oh, and for the person from the frigid north who sent massive pyschic waves down here and caused this sheila to jump into the pool to terrorise me:

Better luck next time!!

Do me a favour and throw the name of that beer at me again, eh? I accidentally sent my to-do list through the laundry. Now how am I supposed to know what to drink?! I might end up drinking Bud Light if I don't get something written up fast. Very dangerous situation.

No worries, mate. It's James Boag's Premium Lager, or sometimes called Boag's Premium. It's one gold medals ten years in a row in Belgium with Belgian judges! In fact, that earn it a special gold medal award.

It's, ah, just *slightly* better than bud light LOL.

I don't know if this place ships outside of Aus, but it's worth a look:

that would be "won" gold medals, not "one" gold medals...
