Guys? I just need a hug.

Like the kind where I can tuck my head under your chin. I'm 5'6", so if I need to get you an apple box, I can.

WE ARE BACK, by the way, Hey, Don't Judge Me, I mean. Crazy security breach/server farm issues, all resolved, migration hiccups, all resolved, and I miraculously still have a head of hair.

It would be super keen if y'all clicked on various links on the page to give me an idea of how much we can take. (Also, we got a pretty sweet mention on the FRONT PAGE of METAFILTER, um, right when we crashed. D'oh! But still. Pretty sweet.)

Our pool was NINETY THREE DEGREES yesterday. Doesn't that sound awful? The air was 115, so it still felt good. Kinda. We're contemplating buying a bunch of bags of ice and throwing them in. Feh. This has been the second hottest summer (and driest) in Texas history. That's saying something, y'all.

I'm on pre-'ritas, moving on to ACTUAL 'ritas. I'm a mom, I can write you a note so you can start drinking them at work, too. HERE:

Dear ( your boss's/name ),

(Your name) has a medical condition that requires them to consume massive quantities of margaritas, hourly. Thank you for your understanding, and you have a little something right there. *licks thumb, wipes cheek*

A Mom, imbued with Mom Authority.

You're welcome.

Does Mom Authority work for other moms? I'm inclined to believe it does.
Being a mom, I have all the answers. I say it does. Hmmm.

Aug. 4th, 2011 08:38 pm (UTC)
Oh, absolutely! Then again, I say your mom authority has you grandfathered in, so. (Grandmothered?)

::hugs::, ::hugs::, and more ::hugs:: (and lots more where those came from!)
Aug. 4th, 2011 09:17 pm (UTC)
And I'm imagining they're the kind where you rock back and forth, too. *LEANS*

Oy, this week!

We're on our way to hottest summer. REAL SOON NOW. I keep looking at WEatherunderground.com and the record reports because I'm a masochist.
Aug. 4th, 2011 09:19 pm (UTC)
IDK, I was here for the summer of '80, and that was something like 63 straight days of 100+. Oh, and our A/C was out for two weeks. And my little sister was something like 1.5 years old. MISERABLE SUMMER, miserable.

I've stopped watching the weather, because I gets a sad. We had a tree die, it's so hot and dry out there.

You supply the apple box and you've got a big chin-tucking hug from me!

mr. muse and I disagree loudly and at length over whethe pool water can be too warm, and I say ice it up, baby! We have hardly used pur pool here this year, because it has either been way too hot or like 70. Ugh. Lovely useless water feature.
Aug. 4th, 2011 09:21 pm (UTC)
I shall! I shall supply one! <3

I'd say 95 is too hot. That's the hottest it got last night at 7pm. (It cools down several degrees overnight, but as soon as the sun hits it...)

The Mr. brought home 8 bags of ice. I think we need 20.

Sorry if I'm sweaty. *turns fan on us*
Aug. 4th, 2011 10:54 pm (UTC)

I would give you a hug, but my week is so crappy that it would turn into me *taking* a hug and we'd end up all "Give me the hug!" and "No, you give me the hug, dammit!", followed by us either having a big fight over hug selfishness or bursting into tears.

I think we should just skip right to the drinks instead. Cheers!

You supply a stepladder and you can have a hug (5'2"). Otherwise it'll be like when the daughter (5'9") and I hug and my head rests naturally on her 'cushions'. When did she get so tall that she can't rest on mine!?

Hot water swimming pool kinda defeats the object of having one, yes? You need some sort of internal water wheel to scoop the chillier deep water up to the top or a platoon of otters might do it! See I'm not imbibing but the margarita fumes are getting to me, hmmmm :)

Did you manage to get the purple stains out btw?

Aug. 4th, 2011 11:34 pm (UTC)
Haha, that's how it is when I hug my daughter, too. I try and find a step. :D

I did get them out! Enzymatic cleaner and the sweat of children were what it took.
Aug. 5th, 2011 12:23 am (UTC)
You did it! You lived to tell the tale of bandwidth HORROR. Margarita IV, stat! Much love to ya, baby.
Aug. 5th, 2011 12:26 am (UTC)
I did!! Oh, the horror...

Here! Have a hug from an internet stranger! I'm 5'7", so you might just have to plonk your head on my shoulder. Maybe we'll do a short post-hug polka as well!
Aug. 5th, 2011 01:28 pm (UTC)
I shall take it! Oooh, I'll squinch down a bit and feel short! :)

Thank you!!!

AWESOME, it'll be like hugging my daughter. I LIKE TALL PEOPLE. I ASPIRE TO BE ONE OF YOU SOMEDAY.

Oh my god, you have no idea, Sam. ME, TOO. Whew.

YES, THIS! Oooooh, natural springs feel amazing. There's a massive one in Austin, Barton Springs, and it's always 68F year round. BRISK. But when it's toughly the temperature of Satan's taint? That feels lovely.
Aug. 5th, 2011 08:48 am (UTC)
*hughughug* but I'll pop myself in the fridge for a bit first, so I'm nice and cool.

I'm going to not only print the note, but have it laminated. Thank you!
Aug. 5th, 2011 01:30 pm (UTC)
Ooooooooh, you win for most efficient use of hug! (Support AND cooling!)

Oh, you are more than welcome. I can write all sorts of notes. Oooh, stay tuned, I'll post some today. ;)
Aug. 5th, 2011 02:17 pm (UTC)
I would imagine the pool felt a little bit like swimming in pee... ICE, ICE BABY!

Thanks for the note. I printed it out and gave it to my boss who isn't going to be here most of the day and she said, "Go for it."

I think I will. hahaha

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.

Time Wot It Is
