It's really hard to work with it so hot, here, in that I have to drive in a hot car from place to place; the car never really cools off enough to be comfortable, and not all of the facilities that I have to visit have reasonably functional air conditioning. So by the time I got home, I was pretty wiped out. Still, I had an essay to write for the Listening to World Music class. I think my beloved was also wiped out by the heat, because she recommended we go out to eat, and I readily agreed.

We stopped at Applebee's, primarily because we were too soggy/heated/fatigued to go farther afield, or wait for seating. We plopped down at the bar, had a drink (rum again, in my case), and ordered what turned out to be a solid meal. We then toddled off to Tutti Frutti for dessert, and then home for me to get my work done.

Since I wasn't running the TV (which I usually do, but I couldn't concentrate on writing with it on), my wife logged onto her computer, and started watching some educational videos to help her formulate her plans for our niece's Bat Mitzvah quilt. However, I found the sounds distracting and ran upstairs to get her a pair of headphones, which worked a charm. I have to thank her for being willing to put them on, it made a world of difference for me to get the essay done.

I stayed up too late, after posting it. Dumb.

We're off to have lunch later today at a pizza place in the city with friends; I don't think I'm in the mood to order a deep dish pizza, though, with our impending trip to Chicago on the horizon. It's Edwardo's or bust!
