The "H" factor...

...And by that I mean Humidity. Simon Cowell may be looking for the X factor, but I'm more concerned with the oppressive H factor at the moment.

The air has been so waterlogged here for the last few days you can almost drink it. My Puppy is drooling nonstop, the lights in the bathrooms are acting wonky, my middle child woke up feeling unable to function (or go to school) this morning, the fog was so thick on the way to the oldest child's bus that it was like being in a horror movie where zombies might emerge from the fog at any moment...

Humidity sucks. And sucks the life right out of me... just like a zombie, actually.

So unable to think of anything clever on my own, I'd like to direct you to some blogs not suffering from the high humidity...

1. Check out this awesome video that Jennifer Shirk posted for her Motivational Monday - I watched it with my oldest son before school this morning. Awesome.

2. Oh, and I need to go find this book Lisa Gail Green featured this morning - Anna Staniszewski's MY VERY UNFAIRY TALE LIFE! Sound like something my daughter and I would both enjoy ;-)Link

3. Rosemary Gemmell at Reading and Writing has posted a link to the Mills and Boon New Voices contest - if you're an unpublished, unrepresented author you can enter before October 10 - check out the M&B FAQs here.

4. Sommer Leigh at Tell Great Stories reminds us that this is BANNED BOOK WEEK, now through October 1st. She has a link to a video by Judy Blume and promises personal posts this week about banned books... at the Banned Book website, there's a list of the 10 most "challenged" books of 2010 - which I was shocked to see includes the Hunger Games series, one of my favorite series of recent books. Not that I should be surprised, but did the people wanting it banned actually READ the series??

What blogs are you reading this morning, and how do you handle humidity? (or did the zombies get you first?)


  1. Thanks for the linkage!! :D What a nice surprise. Oh and we must live around each other because my daughter told me on the way to school this morning that I should watch out because Vampires will be out in this weather.

  2. Thanks for the mention!

    Yeah, I hear ya on the humidity. Even my carpets feel wet when I walk around. Bleh.

  3. Ooh, I don't do well in humidity, either. It makes me feel sluggish and gross! Luckily, living in the northwest, we don't get a lot of humid days, but when I was Toronto, summers could be disgusting.

  4. The humidity is bad here also. I can't wait for the cold front coming through later this week so we can get back to my 70s.
