uneventful hot day

Well, unlike the lucky ones living in beautiful Boston, picturesque Quincy or reputable Rochester enjoying beautiful snow, I had a hot and uneventful day.

As mentioned yesterday, the wheelie bin was back yesterday, and after writing the address on all four sides of the bin, I decided to give it a clean. Because of water restriction, I simply can't keep hosing it. Instead, I got a few buckets of water, a brush and some detergent. The bin was quite smelly, on top of the high temperature, it means flies all over (certainly not as pretty as picturesque Quincy). Well, someone has to do the dirty task.

Because still the lacking of the car, I had to walk to the Post Office in Annandale to pick up the mails in 32C heat. According to Google Maps, the walking distance to the Post Office is 1km. So I walked 2km for the mail during lunch time.

I was overdue for a hair cut, in order to get one done. I had to walk to the bus stop, wait for the bus, get off the bus, and walk to the barber (to Don: it's a cheap place to get my hair cut, Antony is poor.)

Since it was only 3 more sleeps until the important presents opening day, I of course did not waste my time doing a bit of window shopping.

You don't know what you've got, Ant! Bondi Beach at Christmas looks much more appealing then freezing snow. Lucky!

Geez, you treat 2km in 32C like it's the end of the world. Today I walked 6km in -7C weather, despite the sidewalks being covered in slippery ice and the temperature being low enough to freeze your skin off, and didn't care all that much.

DON, Antony is a very sensitive soul, and if things don't come easy, he is usually out of sorts! His under-developed limbs are evidence of lack of use.
If window shopping and credit card spending were Olympic sports, he would be a gold medal champion!!

Bondi Beach in summer is guaranteed to be packed, and there are sand and flies there. Plus, people get burned. I can assure you that many people would prefer to have a 'white Christmas' than the scorching heat reaching 40+C easily.
I have a feeling that you don't get your body sweaty and smelly after walking in that temperature.

You would be surprised. You can either sweat or freeze, depending on how much you're wearing. There's really no happy medium.

Yes, DON, it's hard to find a happy medium, they are always so gloomy....LOL!!

Rev. Dr. Wu Yi,
You are getting nastier and nastier. What do you mean by under-developed limbs? And the gold medal for window shopping and credit card spending???

You mustn't be so thin skinned Antony, there are important messages in all of the things that the Reverend Doctor says. I think that it might be correct when applied to all of us sometimes.
