>So hot, so very very hot

>Went to see my dermatologist today, she was very happy with how my face looked, no red flare ups even with the heat. By the time I walked to work however, my face was so red you would have thought it was a sunburn, I was a little worried my sunscreen had stopped working. It hadn’t, it was just heat flush.

When I left work, I walked across the parking lot, down the block and across the street. I had to wait for traffic, and I put my hand on my head. My hair was so hot, it was almost to hot to touch. I looked across at the temperature about the State Farm office. 105⁰F, 40⁰C. I don’t remember ever being in temperature that hot, the sun was so hot it felt like it was burning my skin through my clothes.

Fortunately, since my bedroom is in the basement and the lights were off all day, it is relatively cool in there. I shouldn’t have any trouble sleeping tonight.

>My new tattoo

This is not a very good picture Logan took it with my phone right after he was done. It already looks much better. It’ll look absolutely fabulous when it is completely healed.

After the tattoo appointment I was walking around looking for a place to eat, I ended up at this bar and grill in the East Village. I sent a text to a friend, “I am eating in a place recommended by a homeless person.” She replied, “Hey, you never know.” The place did have a minus about it from the start, no baseball game, just World Cup. Soccer fans are loud. Then while I was eating I kept hearing this buzzing noise, like a bunch of bees. Vuvuzelas!

The burger was o.k., just a burger and I missed the game, but by the time I got there it was almost over anyway.
