Do I really have to leave the office?

This morning, weather.com said: 7am, 74F feels like 74F (85% humidity). I was uncomfortable in my apartment, though better outside. Sweating when I got to work, but not unduly so given the time of year and all.

I have yet to venture outside again, though, and don't really want to.

One weather.com check:
3:35pm: 97F, feels like 100F (37% humidity; wind W at 13mph)

The current one is not any better.

Eric had one window open in the conference room during lunch, and that was okay but I'm not eager to go outside in that. Especially not eager to go to my second-floor un-air-conditioned apartment. Really glad they're predicting thunderstorms for tonight and (more importantly) an end to the heat wave. Of course, "good" is still hours away [the temperature under the picture is the "actual"; the one to the right is the "feels like"]. Sigh.

Edit: 6:15pm and I'm heading out (in part because I'm getting hungry) and recalling that I got here at 8:30 (when the doors open) also due to the heat. [weather.com says 6:00pm 93F feels like 95F]

and lo there was much rejoicing

Not dead.  Wasn't even dead when I walked home (low 90s, 40% humidity... very bearable).  Wasn't even dead when I got to my second-floor non-air-conditioned apartment.  Am glad it is cooling down, though.

Today's edition of I Heart Eric:

e-mail excerpt:

I have The Adventures of Brisco County Junior with me if you’d like to watch it at lunch :-D.  I went to the Square earlier so I wouldn’t have to go after work.  Its sooooo hottt. [ed. note: IMDb: Out Today on DVD: "The Adventures of Brisco County Jr": Complete - DVD]


I was thinking last night about your threats to that effect.  (I totally would have brought Firefly but I left it at my parents’ house.)



Or you could, you know, not.
We watched the first half of the pilot during lunch, and of course we recognized-but-could-not-place various people.  Afterward, I e-mailed him the IMDb page.  One of the people had a minor role on BtVS (though that's _not_ where we know him from).  Eric said, "They should really do a Six Degrees of the Whedonverse."  ♥

So of course that's what we did.

Tom Cruise is freakishly easy (2).
Winona Ryder is easy (2) but I wasn't surprised.
Anna Faris from Scary Movie (to which my reaction was: who?) is why IMDb is your friend (3).

I'm actually kind of impressed by long lists (because my media illiteracy means I so fail at this game).  Eric offered the following as an alternative for Winona:
     Winona Ryder was in Edward Sciscorhands with Kathy Baker
     Who was in Nip/Tuck with Julain McMahon
     Julian McMahon was in Charmed – and Bruce Cambell was a guest star on charmed
     Bruce Cambell was in Brisco County Jr. with Christian Clemenson who was in Buffy

Jorja Fox: 3

Eric offered:
     Jorja Fox
     Was in Momento with Larry Holden
     Who was in Charmed..and we’ve already done the rest
(ed. note: I win that one, of course; I'm just amused by his fondness for Charmed)

Also: So many Boston Area people at WriterCon!  Who knew?  I'm literally making a list of people to seek out.
