91 F with 38% RH. That's 91.5 on the Heat Index. Which is Extreme Caution level.

And, of course, a High Pollution Advisory as we experience Temperature Inversion in the Valley.

Pfft, try 94F with 90% humidity. And alligators. And Florida Man... Riding an alligator!

Right. I had to get up in the morning at ten o'clock at night, half an hour before I went to bed, (pause for laughter), drink a cup of sulphuric acid, work twenty-nine hours a day down mill, and pay mill owner for permission to come to work, and when we got home, our Dad and our Mother would kill us, and dance about on our graves singing 'Hallelujah.'

Truth is, the going theory is that the PHX Valley may very well see 130F temps in the relatively near future (as in within a decade or so).

I mean, the problem is less you whining about the weather you chose to live in, and more other people whining about weather and then you turning it into a game of one upmanship.

So much for my “weekend.” Microburst yesterday knocked power out at around 3pm. It’s still out. So no desktop. No internet. I ended up going to a coffee shop to do the audit this morning just to have something to do.

Eventually power will be restored, and I can finally see what mods broke after sims 4 patch day.

Said in Discord, but if you’re wondering how long it takes to drive a wife and child from Chicago to Boston, the answer is 21 hrs.

Also thanks for being such a nightmare to drive at night, Vermont.

I spent Monday, Tuesday and yesterday either barfing or thinking about when I’d barf next. I feel awful. Like too awful to come up with a clever way to say how awful I feel. I dragged my sad self to work today and my damn laptop died.

Wow. I drove from Omaha to Boston in 22. Y'all are slow as fuck.
I drove from Huntsville, AL to Grand Rapids, MI in just 10, but I was by myself in the car and so didn’t need to care about anyone else’s needs.

Oh, and for this trip I apparently had my directions set to avoid toll roads. We go back on Mon, maybe we’ll switch that off, maybe we won’t. But when you avoid tolls in Vermont, the GPS thinks it is hilarious to take you up and down mountains at 55MPH on back roads that look like they came out of a Lexus commercial BUT in total darkness.

PROTIP: Avoid US 250 in the WV Northern Panhandle at night. It's all of the above, but with no cell signal.

Yeah, VT had no cell signal, either.
Fortunately GPS still works, and the maps are already downloaded, so all I missed out on was live traffic/weather data.

On the day we decide to do some cleaning, the vacuum decides it no longer wants to work. Granted, it was about 20 years old, but really bad timing.

Add to that internet connectivity issues and I'm already pounding my head on the wall.

The fire alarm where I work has an intermittent fault. That's not the whine. We had people out looking at it last week & they're coming back this week to fix it. That's not the whine either.

No, the whine is that I got a phone call today telling me that there was a fault with the alarm. Yeah lady, I know. It requires professionals to fix & even if it didn't what exactly do you expect me to do about it at FIVE IN THE FUCKING MORNING! :censored:

Arg! The thirst is real!
And totally inappropriate - I'm in a relationship, my eyes and mind should not be wandering this much!
How do I make it stop?!?

You can't control how you feel. You can only control how you act in response to those feelings.

Yes, I know, it sucks.

Some stuff that's worked for me in the past: deliberately put distance between you and the other person; focus more on your partner; distract yourself with other hobbies or interests; and if all else fails, LOTS of porn.

Plenty of masturbation and trying to keep your in-relationship sex life adequately fullfilling.
But honestly, the sentiment "my eyes should not wander!" is exactly why people invented burka's and "a man should never be alone in a room with a woman" rules.
Your eye is allowed to wander. I'll happily stare at any woman's ass that passes in front of me, and admire it. I'll also happily stare at a cute doggy with a smile and think about petting it. And I'll do neither.
