104F. Very, very humid. These are the days the city disappears. The suburban malls are packed because there's air conditioning. Where i live (downtown) noone is around. Hardly any cars. A handful of people walking around, the younger ones in bikini tops or with their tee shirts hanging from the back of their shorts. I walked down to the grocery store and sweat dripped off me like rain. Groceries cost me $50-60 now instead of $35 because i'm buying a 24 pack of Diet Coke. The theory is it'll make me less inclined to buy the $2.50 20oz bottles that usually get me through the week.

No cabs. I waited in the sun with cold meat and Coke and cheese and the cab line at the front of the casino was empty. And now, home. Fan on full blast, not that it helps much. Changed into shorts, which is a once-in-a-blue-moon occurrence for me. And i am going to call T in about five minutes. Tomorrow i take a driving lesson to get comfortable with Australian roads and to learn how to drive a stick. I hope the car will be air conditioned. I can do this, i can make it through the heat and the hate and the exhaustion and the cockroaches and all of it. If the immigration lawyer i emailed doesn't reply soon i will call myself before work some time. I'm going to make things happen, i'm going to be with my baby and everything is going to be alright.
