Awww buddy I feel for ya!!

Your post did make me think of this email & LoL!!......

DIARY OF A POM IN WESTERN AUSTRALIA

August 31 - Just got transferred with work from Leeds UK
to our new home in Karratha, Western Australia ...
Now this is a town that knows how to live!
Beautiful, sunny days and warm, balmy evenings.
I watched the sunset from a deckchair by our pool
yesterday.
It was beautiful. I've finally found my new home. I love it
here.

September 13 - Really heating up now. It got to 31 today.
No problem
though. Living in air-conditioned home, driving
air-conditioned car.
What a pleasure to see the sun every day like this. I'm
turning into a
sun-worshipper - no blasted rain like back in Leeds!!

September 30 - Had the back yard landscaped with tropical
plants
today. Lots of palms and rocks. No more mowing lawns for
me! Another
scorcher today, but I love it here. It's Paradise!

October 10 - The temperature hasn't been below 35 all week.
How do
people get used to this kind of heat? At least today it's
windy though.
Keeps the flies off a bit. Acclimatizing is taking longer
than we expected.

October 15 - Fell asleep by the pool yesterday. Got third
degree burns
over 60% of my body. Missed three days off work. What a
dumb thing
to do. Got to respect the old sun in a climate like this!

October 20 - Didn't notice Kitty (our cat) sneaking into
the car before I
left for work this morning. By the time I got back to the
car after work,
Kitty had died and swollen up to the size of a shopping bag
and stuck
to the upholstery. The car now smells like Whiskettes and
cat sh*t. I've
learned my lesson though: no more pets in this heat.

October 25 - This wind is a bast**d. It feels like a giant
blow
dryer. And it's hot as hell! The home air conditioner is on
the blink
and the repair man charged $200 just to drive over and tell
me he needs
to order parts from f**king Perth ......The wife & the kids
are complaining.

October 30 - The temperature's up around 40 and the parts
still haven't
arrived for the f**king air conditioner. House is an oven
so we've all been
sleeping outside by the pool for 3 nights now. Bloody
$600,000 house
and we can't even go inside. Why the hell did I ever come
here?

November 4 - Finally got the f**king air-conditioner fixed.
It cost $1,500 and
gets the temperature down to around 25 degrees, but the
humidity makes it
feel about 35. Stupid repairman. F**king thief.

November 8 - If one more smart bast**d says 'Hot enough for
you today?' I'm
going to f**king throttle him. F**king heat! By the time I
get to work, the car
radiator is boiling over, my clothes are soaking wet and I
smell like baked cat.

November 9 - Tried to run some errands after work, wore
shorts, and sat on the
black leather upholstery in my car. I thought my f**king
arse was on fire. I lost 2
layers of flesh, all the hair on the backs of my legs and
off my f**king arse. Now
the car smells like burnt hair, fried arse and baked cat.
F**k. F**k. F**k.

November 10 -- The Weather report might as well be a
f**king recording.
Hot and sunny. Hot and sunny, Hot and f**king sunny. It
never f**king changes!
It's been too hot to do anything for 2 f**king months and
the weatherman says it
might really warm up next week. F**k!

November 15 - Doesn't it ever rain in this damn f**king
place? Water restrictions
will be next, so my $5,000 worth of palms might just dry up
and blow into the f**king
pool. The only things that thrive in this f**king hell-hole
are the f**king flies. You don't
dare open your mouth for fear of swallowing half a dozen of
the little bast**ds!

November 20 - Welcome to HELL! It got to 45 f**kin' degrees
today. Now the air
conditioner's gone in my car. The repair man came to fix it
and said, 'Hot enough for
you today?' I wanted to shove the f**king car up his
f**king arse. Anyway, had to spend
the $2,500 mortgage payment to bail me out of jail for
assaulting the stupid pr**k.
F**king Karratha! What kind of sick, demented f**king idiot
would want to live here!

December 1 - WHAT!!!! The FIRST day of Summer!!!! You are
f**king kidding me!

Oh my gosh that was too funny. Everyone here in the southern US is complaining about the mild winter we're having but I love it. After the horrible bitter-cold of last year this year is a blessing to me anyways. I just don't think I could have tolerated it this year. I think I would have ended up in the "nervous hospital". Thanks for the laugh cause I haven't laughed much lately.

I really feel for you in Austrailia the media here doesn't even mention your plight with the extreme heat. We had a very bad summer here with alot of heat, sorry can't think of anything that might help ice in the bath tub or the hole sounds good. Sorry to hear about the heat. I can't stand extreme heat either and I'm not that old . Older people feel it more. Good luck hope you get a cool down soon!
