UGH - Hot and Humid... Day 12 :P  
It's incredibly HUMID days like today that make me wish Sydney didn't have such a habit of sleeping on our bed. Aside from the fact that she insists on leaning up against us to sleep (and in this hot weather, it's like leaning up against a furry heater), she loves the air from the fan and will lie down RIGHT in front of it, blocking the air from the rest of us. :( Part of me knows that's what would happen if we got a portable air conditioner. I could see her sitting in front of it all day long, clogging it with all her fur... :( I love Sydney enormously, but it's days like today that I wish she wasn't so affectionate. :P

It was so hot today that Mark & I decided to get out of the house - just because. When I opened the door to the garage I was shocked to see a new, clean Corolla parked there. My first thought was - Woo Hoo! How the heck did we score this great new car?....until I remembered that Mark's car was in the shop and he had borrowed his Mom's car for the weekend. Drat! :)

We ended up eating at Ronnie's (that fantastic restaurant/ice cream parlor place that reminds me of Farrell's) then we went to Circuit City to look for a new computer... I was lukewarm (at best) about the ones I saw there... I know I need to get a new one eventually, but I'm in a current "love" stage in my love-hate relationship with my current computer. And the thought of transferring all the crap that I have on this one is enough to make me dread a new one. :(

The Tony's are tomorrow night and okay, I admit it - I'm getting a tad bit excited about it... I have to try to stay off the internet (I'm sure that's possible) ;) until I watch the awards so I can at least be moderately surprised at who the winners are. I hate being 6 hours behind everyone else on the East Coast! :(

Before I forget, I want to welcome some great new LJ friends to my friend's list;
starryeyed113, allheart808, rush2112, and nikki42 who all seem like wonderful people. :) I look forward to getting to know you all better. :)

It was downpouring on the H2, while I was driving home. It was a muggy, day on the Windward side. Such a difference when I drove home to the horrible rain in central Oahu.

Ronnie's sounds good right about now...ICE CREAM! Yep, you're right it's just like Farrell's. Just the name is different. ;)

I probably won't watch the Tony's tomorrow. I am having guest over, but I am definitely going to tape it.

The ice cream at Ronnie's totally hit the spot! I had to eat the sundae...just because of the hot weather, you know. ;) The Rocky Road sundae, it's one of the best! :)

And yeah, I guess I AM excited about the Tony's. Hard to watch it totally unaware of who won the awards, though living so far away and being so behind time-wise. I will have to fight the urge to jump on the MBs to find out who won...

I will definitely have to try that out, is Ronnie's usually crowded when you go?

You're right about the 6 hours difference. For A.I. I wouldn't wait for the show to air here, I would go online and look at the results. *LOL* So bad...

Pretty crowded - I was surprised. And lots of kids, like you'd expect - but I was also really surprised to see so many adults there - without children. :) You have to try their desserts! It's a must! :)

I don't like humidity at all. I don't know how you stand it. Have fun watching the Tony's. :)

Thanks Carrie! :) The Tony's should be a lot of fun this year, whether or not my favorites win - I'm just happy to see theatre performers get the recognition they deserve. :) Hope your weekend is going well.

Even if Lauser doesn't sleep on my bed when it's so hot I can imagine what it means that Sydney is doing that. I'm not sure if I could sleep then, at all.

Hope you will get better weather, soon.

Take care.

Thanks, Sabine! :) I hope for better weather too... :P And Sydney will probably be confused in a few months when it's cold and I want her to sleep next to me. ;)

Take care! :)
