It's Too Effing Hot!

But despite that dramatic headline, I'm actually feeling fairly cheerful. My horoscope today claimed that my social life should be looking up and that many of my goals are within reach right now. This is promising. Certainly my social life just now is busy and bodes to be busy for the next few weeks.

This evening was "Black Wednesday," as lidocafe, superfoo and friends have dubbed it - we have instituted a kind of film noir movie club at lidocafe's apartment. Tonight was "Strangers on a Train" which I should write about but haven't had time to synthesize my thoughts about. Suffice it to say that it was campy, clever, surprising and interesting in turns. Despite the heat, Kelly, Brianna, Baz and Brianna's sweety Josh and I had a very delightful evening, and another is planned for next week. marri - if you're reading this and wondering why you weren't invited, you were, it's just that I don't think we were very efficient about doing it. You're on the list of the email messages that went around, but B said that you might missed it somehow. This is regrettable, as we would have welcomed your company - next week, perhaps?

I am also in the process of arranging a kayaking expedition with vaframenti at the end of the month, which will be delightful, I'm sure.

AND I've just had email word that my friend mkb is coming over this weekend, so no doubt she and kp and I will get together and do girlfriendy things, which will be wonderful. The three of us have been friends for thirty plus years, so good times are always had when we get together.
EDIT: I've just done the math in my head, and it's not thirty plus years for the three of us, but it is thirty that I've known mkb, and I knew kp in high school, though we didn't actually travel in the same circles then. I was a mysterious artsy type, and rumoured to have been cool, though I didn't realize it at the time; kp was on the student council and hung out with the popular crowd - this also seems bizarre if you know her now, as she's more the mysterious artsy type and much cooler than I am.

AND I've been invited to a party at B & J's next weekend...

And I've won a couple more challenges on Flickr, which is always fun.

Now, if the temperature would just drop to more civilized levels... (can temperature be civilized? It's certainly uncivilized right now - rumour has it that it was 37 this afternoon, which is absolutely unheard of for Victoria)
