Another rip-roaring "don't breathe the air, it's unhealthy kind of day" [Jun. 8th, 2007|06:39 am]

And of course, I thought I'd celebrate by spending 2 hours in the car commuting to the Faire site, hang out on the Serengheti Plain, placing vendors and trying to keep the dogs from passing out, then commute 30 minutes back to the hotel...in between, once again testing my hypothesis that you sweat just as much in shorts and a t-shirt as you do in a bodice, chemise and skirt....the latter just soaks up the sweat better.

Which reminds me of Memorial Day weekend driving down there, when the "very important message signs" had this handy dandy hint: Ozone Alert: Poor Air Quality Today. Consider car pooling or rapid transit.

Which is a really effective message to give to people driving down 95 South on a holiday weekend Friday.

Newsflash: if I'm driving down 95 South on a Friday, I'm either already car-pooling or it's a bit too late, isn't it? And holy smokes, you're right! Rapid transit, why didn't I think of that? Let me pull over right now and...

As long as it's too late to effectively change my behavior, why don't you just break down and tell it like it is, V-DOT?

"Ozone Alert: Poor Air Quality Today. And you're just making it worse by driving around, probably without maximizing your passengers. And with a hole in your exhaust system. And a low mileage gas hog. You selfish bastard."

Actually I find the bodice, chemise, skirt COOLER than shorts and a tshirt. I think it breathes better.

Poor babies all hot :( would they curl up next to a frozen 2 litre bottle of water? We used to do that trick with the rabbits in Kansas.

See you Sunday?

It's the lack of bathrooms and those nature signs with the bears on them.
