I think I will go curl up in a corner at the home of a friend with air conditioning. Or the bookstore. It's okay now, but the hazy smoke from forest fires affecting air quality is gonna get worse and the heat is going to be record-breaking. Can't even *go* places to beat the heat because it's too hot and smoky.

I know I know it could be worse. I could be in the hospital because of the smoke, or trying to cope without even an apartment to stay at, or much more sensitive to heat than I am, or living someplace much hotter, or in one of the places actually on fire, or or or... This still sucks!

ETA: I can taste the smoke in the back of my throat though it's still only 85. Going down the street to the grocery and bookstore; will be out indefinitely. Bringing compy obvs.

ETAA: I can handle the heat but not the CAN'T BREATHE gods. Considering falling asleep in a corner between bookshelves in the air conditioned store. Even if everyone else from MTG night who was interested bails I'm driving up Mt. Hood tomorrow. This is NOPE.

*gives everybody limeade and wet handkerchiefs*

Air conditioning. Running water. Freezers. Water bottles.

Food I can eat. Fresh fruit in particular.

Medication that helps me breathe and medication that helps me remember why.

Friends I can spend time with. Thank you.

The ability to buy a cold drink and a snack (and an excuse to sit in air conditioning).

Bookstores. Clever new (and old!) sf&f books that interrogate the problems of the genre with deep love and rightful anger and snarky humor. Used books. Sale books. Read-it-all-and-put-it-back-but-I’m-gonna-need-to-buy-a-copy-to-re-read books.

Instant access to information and communication via the Internet.

Trees. Thank you, trees.

Pillows.

Ceiling fan.

Views of the sun and the moon, however, hazy.

Things that smell of mint (or catnip!)

The coffee ice cubes turning out to be tasty.
