As much as I’d love to share all of our humidity with you, that technology isn’t possible yet. But thanks to the 21st century innovation known as blogging, I can share my world with those of you who didn’t even ask for it in the first place. It’s time for The Nest to do another two days late response to Melanie’s SYW questions for this week… which are all conveniently about the absolute worst season of the entire year….. SUMMER! Like, yay and shit, I guess. I’ll share my world and melt with you…
Are you a Summer person? A Winter person? Or one of the other seasons suits you best?
I prefer the more temperate seasons of Spring and Fall, with a strong preference for the latter since I do slightly favor colder weather (especially after it’s been HOT). I get that a lot of people don’t like winter… snow gets a little old after the third or fourth time it dumps on you. But I will never understand why summer seems to be so beloved. I’ll take Too Fucking Cold To Go Outside over Too Fucking Hot To Go Outside any day…
What is your favorite summer time clothing?
My wardrobe doesn’t change during the year…. other than maybe adding a jacket or coat if necessary (I’ll spare you the image of any clothing, or lack of clothing changes, that may occur in the privacy of my own nest).
The Shelf critters do get their summer fashion on, though….
And Hung Lo…
I’m so very sorry for that……… no, I’m not.
Do you find yourself eating out more during the summer? Or making ‘cold food’ like salads and stuff you can heat in the microwave?
No, I’m a routine person… and weather doesn’t affect what I eat. It can be 100 degrees in the house, and I’m still going to fry my chicken, dammit!
Do you like watermelon? What’s your favorite summertime treat?
I haven’t eaten watermelon since I was a kid… but I did like it. Except for those damned seeds that were buried in literally every square inch of watermelon flesh. Mom always told us that if we swallowed watermelon seeds, we’d grow a watermelon in our bellies. And being kids, like with all that Santa Claus bullshit, we were stupid enough to believe that. Of course, it could always be true. Remember folks, the next time you see a woman who looks like she might be pregnant… never assume that she is. She just might have a watermelon growing in her belly instead…
Are you thankful it’s finally (sorta) dry and warm?
Sorta dry, as in it’s stopped raining every other day… but the humidity is still about 6900%. Warm…. no. The 90’s may have been an alright decade, but as a group of temperatures, they suck.
