all dressed up.....

...but i'll get to that in a minute.

after spending five hours this morning sitting in the aisle seat while a small-bladdered couple occupied my window and the middle seats, i was somewhat relieved when our plane landed at the phoenix airport around 9am local time.

relief was short lived, however, because at 9am this morning, sunny phoenix was already at a "balmy" 88 degrees.

but "it's a dry heat," as people keep telling me, which i guess is somehow supposed to make it all okay.

the forecast called for 110 degree temperatures today. i have no idea whether or not the mercury rose that high, mostly because i've spent most of the day bonding with SO's mom's air conditioning vents.

we did venture out long enough for lunch with his dad, and afterwards we stopped by DSW (designer shoe warehouse), where for some strange and inexplicable reason, i decided to purchase what will inevitably turn out to be the implements of my demise.

the next time i feel like being social and dressing a little girly, i have killer heels to wear. these 3" tall shoes surely qualify as "catch me, f*ck me pumps", and while i doubt either of the two actions will take place when i wear them out in public, surely i'll at least have an embarrassing anecdote or two to share when i get around to penning my best-selling autobiography.

assuming i don't hit my head on the way to the floor, that is.

Don't know if you'll get this in time or not, but is there a possibility this time around to meet up? Email me!

i'm afraid i won't be able to get up into montana (beyond the west yellowstone airport, that is), but i'm supposed to come visit my college roomie again sometime next year- we're going to try to get over to glacier national park.

Look at the bright side...once it gets past 100 you can't really tell the difference! Plus your kinda heat is like walking around in a sauna all day for us!! Have fun on our coast!!
