Summer of Sweat 2016

Postby Prey » Sun Jun 05, 2016 10:00 am

Here we go again then -

Back to long ass sleepless nights covered in your own sweat. Kids screaming at the top of their lungs as if it is still the middle of the day until gone 10pm. 100 knocks on the door a day asking if my kids are playing out starting at 8am every single morning. Going out and buying the best mobile cooling fan I can find to keep me feeling moderately sane. Neighbours playing horrible music at ridiculous sounding levels and no matter how high you turn up the tv there's no escaping it still. Not being able to enter a room for hours because your windows are all open and a huge bee/wasp somehow found its way in there and now refuses to leave. Drinking more liquids than your body can physically handle. Dropping all the graphical settings in games because your graphics card is cooking itself slowly and you still wish to game just as much as you did in Winter. Tackling the yearly garden chores only for you to cut through a brand new hedge trimmer wire within the first five minutes of use (actually happened yesterday and is a new record for us) Being forever pestered into doing silly summer only tasks such as water fights, blowing up the outdoor pool that takes six hours to fill, family garden picnics and barbecues you just cannot be arsed with and overall just generally feeling agitated and restless because it's just too damn hot and everyone else is loving it but yo...JUST LEAVE IT OK I WILL DO IT IN A MINUTE I SAID!!!!!

I hate Summer already and it's only been a day or so. What are your summer pet hates? I know I should enjoy it deep down and I'm a complete grumpy git for posting this but hey I'm a heavy rain everyone indoors and cool weather kinda guy. :mrgreen:

I was in New Castle for a few days last week, fucking Baltic it was! We kept making 'It's cold north o The Wall' references.

Not being able to sleep is my worst thing about summer. And the flies, I really hate flies.

I used to get really bad hayfever but a couple of years ago I started taking allergy tablets and it more or less doesn't bother me anymore. That was the worst part about summer.

Other than that I like the long, bright days and the walking around in less clothes. The students across the road from my flat all clear out during summer so it's actually quieter around my area than the rest of the year and I live quite high up so when I open the windows I get lovely cool breezes. Inevitably we get days where it totally pisses it down but is still warm outside, which is lovely too.

The only thing that really bothers me now is overly humid days because our office turns into a microwave.

Automatically put on jeans to go for a walk earlier.

Should have chosen shorts..... :(

Summer is the best. Thankfully I have a nice cool flat which is north/south facing and has high ceilings. Sucks in the winter, but means it doesn't get too hot in the summer.

Summer is shit. Bunch of fannyheeds polluting the lovely parks with fucking disposable barbeques, leaving their junk at their arse. Summer brings out the worst people. Every other season is better.

Summer dislikes:

1. Afforementioned wasp invasion.

2. What eVoL said -- particularly the ones who look like they live at the gym and have tattoos on every spare inch of flesh. Which seems to be pretty much EVERYONE. Where do all these people come from?

3. Needing to change one's shirt twice a day.

Had an awful time trying to sleep last night even with the bedroom fan on and the window wide open wearing just a pair of boxers I must have spent a good three hours trying to get to sleep in utter vain.

Word is it's only for two more days though after which temps will drop, thank god.

Can confirm Edwin's observations, summer is definitely here. Walked past a Wetherspoon's earlier on and saw a small group of late-middle aged men all sat topless drinking pints.

Living in Scotland means you get the pleasant warmth without the unbearable heat. Still need to change my shirt twice a day though...but that's mostly because of all the walking I do (I don't own a car).
