What happened to spring?

Yesterday it was 88 degrees.

Today the forecast calls for 92. It's not even 10am and we already have the a/c on.

Last week it was in the 50's and 60's, even low 70's.

Can't Mother Nature make this an easier transition?

Yesterday Gina and I went to the 101 Cafe for breakfast. She had eggs, I had french toast, and we chatted and got all caught up. Then, because it was so hot but so lovely outside, we went for a drive around the park and in the hills, trying to think about how you'd fill all these rooms and how all the the houses that had greek statues in front were really just very silly.

She dropped me off at Vermont Street where I spent about 1/2 hour in the little neighborhood bookstore waiting for Mary (who had forgotten about the time change). She arrived, and we found a cute little french bistro for lunch, since the sushi restaurant we originally planned on was closed. It even had decent prices. We sat outside in the shade and talked away about her job, my lack of one, plans for kids, husbands, and the trip to Vegas this summer with our husbands plus Kurt and Emily (2 more writers from AFI). After lunch, we went to see Breach with Ryan Phillipe, Laura Linney, and Chris Cooper. Fabulous spy movie. Highly reccomend it.
