They want us to think that's all it is, but really the lizard people who really run the world just wanted to have a nice outdoor BBQ in Hyde Park today, so they turned up global warming thermostat a few degrees.
Don't laugh, there are wacky and weird websites out there that will have worse reported as fact. This, however is not one of them.
So it's a bit hot, it's not the first time, it didn't even set a record. It is early in the season for weather like this, but it is not unheard of, is it?
Personally, I'm not a big fan of warm weather, especially here in sunny north London. Where I grew up, we had very hot, humid summers, but just about anywhere you would go had air conditioning.
Ahhh, aircon, it might be destroying the environment, but at least you could stay comfortable in this kind of weather. It's not very popular here in the UK and practically unheard of in people's homes.
I've looked into purchasing one, but they are either too expensive or cumbersome or both. Last summer, we had a heat wave in August that was one of the worst on record. I don't know how I'm going to deal with it if it happens again this year. I'm suffering already.
The hippy house seems to retain the heat for some reason. Right now, in my living room, with windows open and a fan blowing, it's already 31 degrees Celsius. My bedroom is about the same temp. The house is around 100 years old and I guess the brickwork turns the whole place into a giant kiln.
Enough about this heat, writing about it is not cooling me off at all.
Perhaps I'll make a hippy iced-coffee. Here's my secret recipe for an iced vanilla latte:
Pour a large, fresh espresso over ice into a cocktail shaker. Add vanilla syrup, and cold milk, then give it a shake. For extra coldness, put the cocktail shaker into the fridge for a while, or pour the mixture into a glass packed with ice. Kick back, sip and enjoy!
I guess it's not that secret. And what do you mean you don't have an espresso maker or cocktail shaker? They're both cheap additions to your kitchen toys, so you have no excuses.
