My mind is a dangerous place. Make sure you wear a cup.

Danger, Will Robinson, Danger!

I live in Gainesville, Florida.
Today is June 30.
It is going to be sunny and 95 degrees today.
Gainesville is pretty much surrounded by swamp.
The humidity is going to be brutal.
And the air conditioning in our house broke overnight.
Plus...I was in a bad mood to start with.

Do the math.

This is not good.

Good Gawd, Mr. Fab!!!
I feel for ya, buddy - I'm over here in the Oldest City, & I know from experience that fans just don't cut that stuff.
Can you get it fixed fast? Like, now?
Poor guy!
I'm crossing my fingers for ya that you don't have to suffer through the weekend & holiday before someone will come out to fix you up!

Great Blog! Easy to read. Well written. Great colors!

That is sooo not a good way to start a weekend... positive side to this - you live in Gainsville - most likely there is someone there that can fix it. (tell them your elderly parent is coming to visit you or something - and you need to be at the top of the list to get it fixed!) Where I live - not always someone here to fix those things, especially if he goes on vacation. Just saying.

Poor Mrs. Fab.

Poor Mr. Fab too. I would be staying in a hotel until the AC was fixed. Then again, I hear the humidity in Indiana is worse than New York. I don't know, I only heard.

The. Coolest. Guy. Ever. 16% 15

Clearly a misunderstood genius. 19% 18


Yes, but survey says you're the coolest, guy ever,a misunderstood genius and a playful sensitive guy- so book yourself into a nice air conditioned room with Mrs. Fab and have a honeymoon till the air's fixed. ;-)

Don't forget the flowers!

I feel your pain, brother; you know I do. Gainesville in summer is like the 10th circle of Hell.

Well, at least you can go to work, right?

I'm not sure what 95 is, but that sounds hot. Hope you get it fixed now before the long weekend!

All I have to say is, "Go jump in a lake!"

Or the pool, or ocean, or whatever you have handy.

Really, it'll make you feel better.

fill your tub with ice and jump in, though don't fall asleep as you might wake up minus a kidney!

HA!

You have my sympathy. We didn't have air-conditioning in Glendale, which, while not surrounded by gator filled swamps, got hotter than hell in the summer. We used to go the grocery store and hang out in the freezer section to cool off.

May your air-conditioner be up and running by the end of the day. Or sooner.

Oh. My. Gawd. I am SO VERY SORRY FOR YOU AND YOUR FAMILY. Time to get on the phone to the AC companies!

Coming from the desert of Arizona, and ours quit on us two years ago in July, trying to withstand the heat is not an option.
Gotta get that fixed Mr. Fab.

I don't know whether to offer a bottle of Pamprin and an icepack, or a gun and list of people I'd like to set you loose on.

Which would you prefer, dear?

Oh My!!! I hope your 4th of July weekend gets better!!!

Wooden shoes can also serve as a great ventilator: just "wave" them up and down vigorously (mind Mrs Fab's beautiful face), and feel the wonderful cool air (unless you were just wearing them of course)

Blogger Mr. Fabulous said...

Spidey--You can get kinky in a bathtub of ICE?

Lori--Good point, you are only a couple of hours away...

Pup--I think the ship has sailed on my sanity...

Megan--I thought there were just 7 circles of hell...

D--LOL. I am cautiously optimistic...

Blogarita--Eventually the toilet bowl will look inviting...

Nobody--Maybe you could come fix it with those big muscles of yours...

Jen--I know all about your mean streak LOL

Webmiztris--That IS a consolation!

Ms. M--That's okay, I keep a spare kidney handy for just such emergencies!

Zhadi--Freezer sections are neat!

Michele--Girl, you gotta tun it on!

3T--I hope it is fixed by the time I get home...

Dutchy--But I ALWAYS wear them :) Why don't you come over here and fan me :)

CP--Turn me loose! I assume we are talking about certain family members? :)

Pud--I am sure it will!

Go to a motel with a vibrating bed!! But don't leave your beer on it. (CLASSY, HUH?)

Sorry about your air conditioning plight. Do you have enough deodorant?

Blogger Dick Small said...

Ouch! Sorry, that's all I can come up with... it's nice and cool here in upstate new york though. We're having wonderful weather. It's so cool I may turn my heat on. My heater works, by the way, like everything else in my house. Yes, life is good here. So sorry Fab!!! Hopefully you can get it fixed in the next week or so...

It always seems to happen that the A/C breaks on a hot day. Sorry to hear. I say just kick the shit out of it and get a new one!

I'm doing the math & I came up with 125. Is that right? Did I do better than I did on the quiz?
