live! Beautiful, sunny days and warm, balmy evenings. I watched the sunset
from a deckchair by the pool yesterday. It was beautiful. I've finally
found my new home. I love it here.

September 13 - Really heating up now. It got to 31 today. No problem
though. Living in air-conditioned home, driving air-conditioned car. What
a pleasure to see the sun every day like this. I'm turning into a

September 30th - Had the back yard landscaped with tropical plants today.
Lots of palms and rocks. No more mowing lawns for me. Another scorcher
today, but I love it here.

October 10th - The temperature hasn't been below 35 all week. How do
people get used to this kind of heat? At least today it's windy though.
Keeps the flies off a bit. Acclimatizing is taking longer than I expected.

October 15th - Fell asleep by the pool yesterday. Got third degree burns
over 60% of my body Missed three days of work. What a dumb thing to do!
Got to respect the ol' sun in a climate like this.

October 20th - Didn't notice Kitty (our cat) sneaking into the car before
I left for work this morning. By the time I got back to the car after
work, Kitty had died and swollen up to the size of a shopping bag and
stuck to the upholstery. The car now smells like Whiskettes and cat ****.
I've earned my lesson though: no more pets in this heat.

October 25 - This wind is a *******. It feels like a giant f**kn' blow
dryer. And it's hot as hell! The home air conditioner is on the blink and
the repair man charged $200 just to drive over and tell me he needs to
order parts from f**kn' Perth ....

October 30th - The temperature's up around 40 and the parts still haven't
arrived for the f**kn' aircon. Been sleeping outside by the pool for three
nights now. Bloody $600,000 house and we can't even go inside. Why the
hell did I ever come here?

November 4 - Finally got the ol' aircon fixed. It cost $1,500 and gets the
temperature down to around 25 degrees, but the humidity makes it feel
about 30. Stupid repairman.

November 8 - If one more smart arse says 'Hot enough for you today?' I'm
going to f**kn' throttle him. F**kn' heat! By the time I get to work, the
car's radiator is boiling over, my clothes are soaking f**kn' wet and I
smell like baked cat!

November 9 Tried to run some errands after work, wore shorts, and sat on
the black leather upholstery in the ol' car. I thought my f**kn' arse was
on fire. I lost two layers of flesh, all the hair on the backs of my legs
and my f**kn' arse. Now the car smells like burnt hair, fried arse and
baked cat!

November 10 - Weather report! It might as well be a f**kn' recording. Hot
and sunny. Hot and sunny, Hot and f**kn' sunny! It's been too hot to do
anything for two f**kn' months and the weatherman says it might really
warm up next week.

November 15 - Doesn't it ever rain in this damn f**kn' place? Water
restrictions will be next, so my $5,000 worth of palms might just dry up
and blow into the f**kn' pool. The only things that thrive in this
hell-hole are the f**kn' flies You don't dare open your mouth for fear of
swallowing half a dozen of the f**kers!

November 20th - Welcome to HELL! It got to 45 f**kin' degrees today. Now
the air conditioner's gone in my car. The repair man came to fix it and
said, 'Hot enough for you today?' I had to spend the $2,500 mortgage
payment to bail me out of jail for assaulting the stupid f**ker F**kin'
Barnsalee! What kind of sick, demented f**kin' idiot would want to live

December 1 -
