The Heat Wave continues, although temperatures are a little cooler where I'm at, its still triple digits inland.
Using the misters have helped a lot cooling things down, Doyle and I slept in the screened in back porch, so did Coralline and Chris and my sister in law Maureen, my brother had to go home and guard the house, the twins are at their Aunt and Uncle's place he has air conditioning and a pool.
Sorry, being an elder Goth I will not go pool side during the heat of the day, give me the evening with the stars and the moon(if it's out) soft candle light and the pool as a reflecting pool of serenity, playing soft music and drinking chilled Chablis. I know what I like.
With this heat I've not been able to really hunt for Goth like things, the hot sun drives away the Fog and the bats, however Doyle needs to get a new vehicle, he's been using the company cars since his own car was shot up by a very angry criminal culprit, the insurance company totaled it out. I am so Glad he didn't borrow my car.
So he will use the company cars while on assignments, take public transportation to work, but at my insistence I've been encouraging him to look at the Nissan Rogue Midnight Edition in Magnetic Black, I mean everything all black, black wheels, black body, dark interior and good gas mileage.
Very Goth if you are car shopping, I like it. In a way it has a sort of Bond-like quality.
And I also got lucky and found some of my favorite nail polish in "Bite the Bullet" Sally Hansen, I will not wear the tropical colors, although I did find a few summer cotton dresses in black with white tropical flowers, and a new sun hat in black. I mean the lightest color I will wear is "Wet Cement" which reminds me of burying the bodies when I want to get rid of them (sorry my fiendish mind is working).
Doyle and I started watching the Dirty Harry series with Clint Eastwood, we are in those hot vengeance mind thoughts of late. I think it has something to do with the heat.
And I'm still devastated, another icon passed away earlier this month, Adam West T.V's Batman, he was 88, the last time I saw him was when he made a guest appearance on "The Big Bang Theory" He managed to keep working even after being typed cast as Batman, but frankly I liked his tongue in cheek performance, a friend of mine gave me a copy of his "Back to the Bat Cave" autobiography, I think I'll read it this weekend.
But the City of Los Angeles has done a beautiful memorial, they lit the Bat Signal on City Hall. He will always be remembered.
