Holding Me Hostage

It is the hottest day of the year in Toronto.  I have no idea what the temperature is right now, just know I’m melting.  You can imagine my extreme frustration (or perhaps panic is the better word) when my tupperware container was holding my last lemon slice hostage.  How on earth was I supposed to have my morning lemon water you SOB!?!?!

Okay the truth is it may not have been all his fault.  I did also have that morning strength situation going on.  You know – morning strength – which actually means you have no strength at all and your arms are jello and your hands don’t seem to be moving in the direction that your brain is telling them to.

Also – the internet is holding this blog post hostage.  When Brad woke up this morning to go to work he had internet, but when I woke up the internet was down.  If I had to guess, I would say that the router didn’t get his lemon water this morning and overheated and stopped working.  But alas I have a solution – Starbucks!  Starbucks where there is delicious coffee that’s made for you.  Starbucks where there’s air conditioning.  Starbucks where there is free internet!

When I get home, maybe I’ll bring the fan into the office so that it can cool me off while I try to unplug the one million cords and restart the router.  But then again maybe I won’t.  (I have a REALLY special treat for my garden this morning.  I actually screeched when I was telling Brad about my plan, you’ll have to stay tuned.)

I have no other way to transition into the next part of my post except to play this video … yes again.  Learn to like it!

Soooooooooo goooooooood!  I had a “believe in yourself” moment myself while studying for my final marketing exam on Tuesday.  I was at the park with my text book, notes, and a highliter and a woman walked up to me and started a conversation about studying, since she was a teacher.  Then she told me to go to bed early and that she knew I could ace the exam … “80%!!!!!!! no 90% or higher!!!!!!!!!” she proclaimed as she and her dog walked away.

I was left giggling but realized that I should probably just go ahead and adopt a better attitude about studying for my exams.  Remember that midterm exam I had to write on the Sunday of the long weekend?  Well I got the highest mark in the class :) .  Ah man I was so excited.  Now, I feel pretty silly for beating myself up about not working hard enough leading up to that exam.

In going with my new effort at having a good mood about studying, I figured that I better celebrate having finished my second final exam of the semester.  After I wrote it yesterday I headed over to Lily’s for pizza and beer … and potato wedges (because if you’re going to go dirty just go all the way dirty am I right?)

Two exams left to go over the next two weeks.  What a perfect excuse to take advantage of the library’s air conditioning.

Go ahead – tell me how bad the temperatures are at your house.  But …….. you have to use metric system because I only understand Celsius hahaha :P

  1. I heard your forecast this morning on the news, and felt so bad for you. That is going to SUCK.
    You can always come here, its 14 right now, and its only supposed to get up to 18. Oh, with rain.
    Awesome.

  2. LOL! I hate when my arms don’t function :D

    It’s so HOT everywhere. INSANE! I’m not a heat person either. Blah. Stay cool out there!

  3. I don’t know the metric system but it’s like 100 degrees here. Ahhhhh!

  4. I’m in BC – so I’m a Celsius girl too! We aren’t supposed to get our dose of the heat wave until this weekend, it’s only about 20 here. But I’m bracing myself!

    Don’t melt!

    Yup. Feels like 45 degrees in ottawa today. needless to say i have not left my air conditioned apartment once! My poor boyfriend is doing physical labour in this stuff though! Yuck! Good job on your exam, that is awesome.

    I walked 30 seconds to the bank and my sunglasses almost sweated off my face
    its like almost 40 out here

    48 degrees with the humidex in the Hamilton/Oakville area – I like heat but might be a little too much!!!!!!

  8. Ugh it’s so hot here, too. Probably about the same:) Great job on your test!

  9. I am so attached to internet. I must admit that I get very pissy when ours acts up. I would have been trucking it to Starbucks too!

    And thats really nice of that lady. I agree with her. You’re going to do great on your exams.

    I got really lucky – my brother stopped by on Wednesday night and installed a window a/c unit. I was more worried about my poor dog than myself but I’m so glad he did it. I had to cancel my boot camp class last night (something I’m not proud of) because of the heat. Don’t get me wrong – I like warmer temps. Just not THAT warm. Sheesh.

  11. The heat is insane!! I hate complaining about it though…it’s good for like reading in – but not for any strenous activities! Good luck on your exams – I LOVE your dinner! Finally a blogger not afraid of eating take-out or pizza or cheese or whatever! :) I haven’t had Pizza Pizza in ages – I used to order a thin crust chicken-veggie – good!

    I’m not going to lie…when I first looked at that opening picture, I thought is was a canary in that jar and freaked out a little.

    Thank god it was a lemon!

    And it was 87 in my living room last Monday before I bought the last window air unit at Home Depot. Now even though I installed it upstairs, it’s 76 degrees downstairs (and 150 degrees outside.) Score!
