It's Not the Heat, It's the Humidity

This outside my window:

This mere steps away:

Great food and cold beverages:

And great friends to share it with:

Yes, during my girls' weekend in Florida I toyed with the idea of running away and embracing the sun and sand on a more permanent basis. A little cottage by the sea, perhaps?

There's only one problem, and it's a biggie:


Christy said...

Think of it as fluffy - NOT frizzy! That's what headbands and pony tails are for!

Made me smile - great post!!

Liz said...

Ha ha ha ha. Sorry - couldn't help it. Remember that Friends episode though with Monica and the frizzies? Go get braids :)

Mags said...

LOL...I'd stay at the beach too, so just put your hair up!

Christen said...

You are so funny!! I second the idea of little braids. (Perhaps you could have a Monica moment where you swing your hair around to the tune of "No woman, no cry"). When I went to London with my husband, my hairdryer blew out (even with the adapter thingy!) I still grimace at the picture of me and my frizzies in front of Big Ben...

Anna, you make me laugh.

ohmygracious. i can soooo relate. after living in the south for the past 27 years, i had forgotten what life with no humidity is like. just spent a week in the denver area. i would fix my hair in the morning, and at the end of the day? it STILL looked the same!! amazing!

C. Groves said...

Oh Anna - I so feel your pain too. I live in Richmond, VA where the humidity does the same thing to my hair - every day. But on a recent vacay to Portland, OR my boyfriend commented daily on how great my hair looked. and we thought men didn't notice the details

PaperCourt said...

I grew up in FL...I totally get it.
Love your blog!

Debbie said...

Oh yeah! I have the opposite problem - flat to my head hair.

purejoy said...

i nominated you for an award on my blog. i hope you'll have time to spare from straightening your hair to take part. i admire your writing very much!

Heidi said...

Hahahaha!! I'm sorry. It's not funny. Well, maybe a little funny? And cute. Let's not forget, cute.

Kate Coveny Hood said...

Reminds me of the Friends episode when Monica gets cornrows on vacation.

Bonnie said...

Hey, you've copied my summer look!

I spent the last couple of days in Baltimore in 90 degree humid heat. I feel your pain.

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
Generic [url=]Viagra 100mg pills[/url] is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.

Viagra Performance
Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
