SUMMER!!!! like, for FOR REAL. or at least for this week.
thanks to dr. hargrove's tales of t.s. elliot always crossing the thames bridge in the dark, i came to london expecting gray skies and constant darkness- which, well, no. it was only upon getting here that i realized london is a land of temperatures rather consistently located in the 50s, which meant the summer might actually be the hardest part.
yesterday- 30 june- was the first 'real' day of summer, wherein the temperature hit a blazing seventy-nine.
SEVENTY-NINE, people! seventy-nine. a full 20 degrees cooler than the average april to august temperature in the land of my birth, but it'll more than do.
how did i celebrate? by sitting on a park bench for twenty minutes and tanning a deep shade of burn.
