Weekend Assignment: What’s Hot? What’s Cool?

Yes, we’re knee deep in Summer, and the Northeast (not where I live)  is now like a well-done burger left on a Fourth of July Barbecue for too long.  And the grass is always greener on the other side, as they say, so our thoughts turn to how to stay cool in our warmer climes.  And here comes this week’s Weekend Assignemt to ask:

Summer is well underway now. If you live in the northern hemisphere, the days are long and the sun is on its way to being about as hot as it gets in your particular climate. How do you stay cool when the weather gets hot?

Well, of course, I stay cool by being cool.  Because I’m cool.

But enough about me.

You’re here because you want to know about all of the cool stuff I say and do here.  Like, how cool is my writing?  And how cool is Fantasy and Sci Fi?  Oh… wait… that’s not what this Weekend Assignment is about at all, is it?

Maybe this is supposed to be about how I hit the beach every summer, or go the pool each week.  Well… I’m a desk-jockey and evening MBA student.  No beach for me!  (Perhaps more’s the pitty.)  And, I can’t swim.  (Dear Wife has threatened on numerous occassions to make me take swimming lessons after I finish my MBA, if for no other reason that to equip me to rescue drowning children.)

Is it about how I use AC?  I use AC.

Bam!  Instant cool.

(Thanks to B.T., we actually have to keep it cooler in our house than we normally would, because we don’t want the poor tyke to overheat.)

Or maybe this post should be about how Dear Wife and I like to take weekend trips – when time permits (which it usually doesn’t) – up to the mountains, where it’s cooler (and where the views are much cooler) to get away from it all. 

Well, to be honest with myself… I’m quite frankly not sure what to make of this topic.  Mostly, I’m stretching, here.

But you know what is cool, these days?  Steampunk.  So… tomorrow I’m gonna drop some Steampunkery on y’all.  Stay tuned.
