EBEW, baby! It’s back, and it’s monochromatic!
It took me a long time to figure out which color I wanted to swath myself in for this month’s challenge; I initially jumped to orange, because it’s fast becoming my favorite color and I do enjoy being as visually obnoxious as possible. I also considered white, because I just got a pair of awesome white linen trousers (notice how calling them trousers sounds way fancier than just plain old pants?) over the weekend, and doing a white-out outfit would be a challenge for me. I ultimately scrapped those ideas, though, and went with yellow, because who couldn’t use a little more sunshine in their lives?
Plus, yellow’s just a great color, and I thought it might be a little underrepresented over at the ol’ EBEW roundup. Of course, it wasn’t until I was already halfway through the day that I realized I’d worn this same yellow pencil skirt for last month’s EBEW. What can I say? It’s extremely versatile!
It was an appropriate day to be sunshiney, too–temperatures climbed to 104 and I spent most of the day being sunshiney indoors so as not to collapse from heatstroke. It’s not quite this hot, but at night, when your house is 93 years old and doesn’t have central A/C, it’s like trying to sleep inside an oven.
Seriously, though, I can’t complain. It gives me an excuse to stay inside and catch up on Legend of Korra with Mike. (Pabu the fire ferret is my new favorite, although he’s no Appa.)
It does make cooking a bit of a pain, though; even something simple like simla mirch paneer cranks up the heat and I can barely work up the appetite to eat it after it’s done. What are your favorite things to eat when it’s too hot to cook? Me, I can hear an apple and a jar of cookie butter calling my name…
