Dog days

This August/ summer's end doesn't feel like August's end because of all the humidity and monsoons. No sense of approaching coolness, much less any autumn preview. Cicadas sing, but faintly; leaves go brown at the edges, but that could as easily be from heat. As with last year, one expects only a continuation of August into September.

Which said, today's 28C with blowing breeze was very pleasant.

Summer-hyper mouse is still hyper. Impossible to single click on anything. Always back two pages if not three, always highlight whole paragraphs instead of inserting cursor into the middle of a word. Have taken to clicking with my middle or ring finger even, but even that doesn't always work.

Wore shorts today, shamelessly. Don't care if my lily-white thighs and knee flab shows. There is nothing cooler than shorts. What I *want* of course are the super-long baseball things the black guys wear but those are all made of polyester shudder.

Still there's the bath dep't: there's still Serrano ham wrapped around chilled mango slices.
