I dont know if you have heard of Cafe del Mar, but they do a series of great chill out beach music.

Of those only the Mungo Jerry take on summer really captures it for me. And the 59th Street Bridge song and about half the Beatles....

Summer is tight turns in a hang glider just for the sensation of it, and jumps in a cool river, and dew spangled berries.  It's long days and mint juleps and fluffy clouds.

Don't get enough of that now that I run two summer camps. Mad  But I usually have a chance to take kids to the beach, and body surf over and over down the length of the beach as the crosscurrent carries you from riptide flag to riptide flag.

You dont know annoying agony until youve got a few million midges coating you and all biting at once. Evil or Very Mad

This is one of the main reasons I actualy prefer camping here in dec/Jan- cold you can fend off with with wise clothing and a well tended fire- theres nothing will stop the midges however.

Love this song ! summer to me is nights so warm you have the window open all night, early sunrise that smells of perfume, walking barefoot in the cool grass, & tons & tons of foreign students in gangs, backpacks to trip over, pushing in front of the bus queue & seagulls screaming & shitting on you ! Very Happy

Love the kitten picture. I love you 

Is winter better or worse than the crazy heat wave you guys had six months ago, though?

Fuck mosquitoes.

In related stories, we had a wasp get into the building last week.  Fortunately I managed not to freak out in front of everyone but it sucked.  Eventually someone swatted it down and then I jumped and stomped on it to make sure it was dead.

Have I mentioned that I'm afraid of bugs? pale

Yeah it's a fairly crippling phobia. A few years ago I would refuse to enter rooms if I saw bugs in there (even ones without stingers) which would impede my ability to do normal everyday things. Thankfully it's not that bad anymore.
