It’s 114 degrees outside today…

…and I’m going to a Christmas party tonight! I think we Arizonans have “Christmas in July” parties in order to trick ourselves into thinking that summer really isn’t that hot, or unbearable, or long, with clever distractions like holiday movies, white elephant gift exchanges, and yummy treats that usually only get served once a year, in the hopes that these cooler climate activities will make us feel cooler. Um, yeah, it totally works *cough, cough*

At least it’s a good excuse for the knitting to come along.
