Sweaty Nipples

I am so blasted hot that I can't write like I want to!!!
There was a band "Sweaty Nipples", (from Portland, Oregon. Popular in the eighties.) and THAT's what's goin' on in P-town lately.
Portland has been going through a heat wave and it messes with my mind. It mushes my brain. It creates a lethargic Ann that is not the kind of Ann I enjoy.
Our computer is in the hot part of the house so that definitely draws me to the air-conditioned room and a good book. (TWILIGHT!!!!!! I'm just getting started!!!!)
As of this very moment it's 90 degrees in this room and it's 9:45 at night!
(For those of you in the hot part of the world please don't laugh at me. I'm an Oregonian. Most of us start sweating when it's 75 degrees.)

I would like to know if you have any tips/tricks for staying cool on the hot days.
I've learned some things in my day but, if there is some good stuff out there I'm all for it.

I miss my blog friends! I'm doing my best to catch up!

  2. Pillow cases in the freezer! It's the best...doesn't last long, but sure feels good. I also love taking a cold shower before bed and sleeping with a fan and wet hair! Hope that helps!

  3. We get the hot and humid stuff here ALL summer long. For a few weeks it was about 100 degrees every day. You can fill your bath with ice and live in it. haha. We live by the ocean and even that gets WAY too hot on a blazing day. There's no easy solution other than air conditioners and constant showers.
    I'll wish for cooler weather for you!

  4. Head in the sink a bunch of times or several cool showers

    Wet bandana on your head

    Mop the floors and let it evaporate (an electric fan makes this even better)

    Hose down outside pavement to cool it off

    For little kids fill up the sink and give them some cups and tupperware and little plastic animals to play with

    cotton housedress and NO UNDERWEAR 8-)

    Best of all go to the library, free + ac

  5. Ice cubes on the wrists does the trick every time! Even better if it is from a yummy drink of choice. Hope you cool off soon - you are missed!

  6. Honestly I just sweat. I have the same problem about a non-optimal computer location. I really need to get with the program and get wireless.

  7. We just sweat, too. But, the 100degree weather is in my blood. I am used to it. Sweating at 75? Thats when I bitch about it being too cold!!

  10. put a wet towel on the back of your neck (around the base) (there is an acupuncture point which helps clear heat there) and also run cool water over your wrists...and have a fan on!

  11. Popsicles.... lots and lots of popsicles.

    Hope you enjoy the book. It's on such heavy demand at our library they can'y keep them on the shelves.

  12. Don't forget the baby wipes! They cool you off, especially if you are taking a cooler along with you, keep them in there or in the refrigerator. Awesome!

  13. Once you get involved in the Twilight series you won't even notice the heat anymore. I started reading a couple weeks ago and I am almost at the end of book 4, which is so sad because I don't want them to be over. So enjoy!!

  14. Gosh, I remember that band! Saw them perform at PSU.

    It's too late for any tips now, but it's almost no use. I just shower at night, then powder, then keep a spray bottle with water handy and a fan. Doesn't help a lot, but it's nice relief for a moment. What I'd give for air conditioning!

  15. Couldn't resist reading this post! I love to use a wet tea towel with ice around the back of your neck and cold water on the wrists - it really works! Stay cool!

  16. Is EVERYONE reading Twilight? I feel like such an outcast for not wanting to read it!

  17. Drysol... it's my favorite friend for those hot sweaty summers (or year round for me lately...). It's prescription therapy, but when used regularly, it helps stop the sweat (and smell).

    Thanks for stopping by yesterday. Beautiful blog you have here!
