>Mike, follow my moves. 

I'd follow you anywhere, Carol, you know that -- as long as it's San Francisco 
or Seattle.  Portland is iffy.  Both times I've driven through the city I've 
seen vans with signs advertising that they pump out basements.  Not even 
Seattle has such businesses.

As I recall, you lived for a brief spell in Mississippi and know how hot and 
humid it gets here.  But then you go and live in Fresno?????  You're not to be 
trusted.  Let me know when you're moving to Seattle or San Francisco.

in Memphis where at 4:20 pm on July 29th it's 80 degrees and 85% relative 
humidity, skies are overcast.  Life is good.

  Would somebody please TURN OFF THE SUN!  Jeez, 107 degrees in Portland, 
Oregon? I'm cursed. Cursed, I tell ya. Mike, follow my moves. I'm clued into 
global warming, big time. Hell, maybe I AM global warming...

    way down,
    way, way down.
    No AC's are breaking under strain.
    Can you feel my pain?

    Our bodies struggle to maintain
    ninety-eight point six degrees
    when it's only eighty-five outside.
    God has his reasons, I know,
    I just wish that He would slow
    down his retribution against mankind
    for fucking up his grand design.
