Oppressive Heat, Sad Day, Disney, and 128 Days?

A miscellaneous post, in other words.

I don’t know if you would even know this, but Dallas is in a heat wave.  102 degrees today, 103 tomorrow and into oblivion, for all the weatherman knows.  Add our lovely Texas humidity and you get a heat index of 105 to 106.  Too hot to think straight, certainly too hot to wield a hot wire tool.

Did anyone say 128 days?  Since I am sitting on my duff complaining about the heat, that means I am apparently not out in the garage working on props like I should be, with 128 days left.  And then something even worse than that scared me this morning.  As I’m planning for Disney in mid-September, and realizing that I have 12 weekends til we leave…. I realize that a few of those weekends will be filled with shopping for the trip, packing for the trip, being excited about the trip…. hmmm.  That cuts into prop building time a lot.  Then I thought…. OH HOLY CRAP… we will be setting up the weekend after we get BACK from Disney… that means I am almost out of time, and its only June!  Ok, more like July.  Called Jayson on the phone, he laughed because he had already thought of this.  Talking to him I got even more freaked out, I then started sweating and so I quit thinking about it.

But who can work when its this flippin hot? 

My grand prop plans are starting to dwindle, and I am already counting what I can absolutely get done before September. 

I can’t possibly end this post without some mention of the passing of 3 icons of my childhood… Ed McMahon, who’s “Here’s Johnny” became such a part of all of our lives for so long…. Farrah Fawcett, an original Charlie’s Angel, a kind and caring soul…. and Michael Jackson, a pop icon.  I believe today is going to be one of those “Do you remember where you were when Farrah and MJ died on the same day” kind of days. 

RIP, and prayers to the family and friends of the above mentioned.

PS.  Thanks to all for the funny comments – you guys just make my day.  I really adore my friends in the Halloween community :)
