Warm (Or How To Be In A Movie Without Really Trying)

It was 98 degrees in Orange County today. 98 degrees! In April! In Orange County! Isn't that against the law or something? Whatever it is, it's unacceptable. And our air conditioner is broken. Also unacceptable. It has cooled down a bit since the sun set, but not enough. Not enough! And I should be making my hungry husband some dinner, but I can't bring myself to turn on the oven, because the oven raises the temperature in the apartment by at least 10 degrees. What can I make for him that doesn't require the use of the oven? We are out of microwavable food, except for my organic dairy-free, gluten-free tofu enchiladas, and somehow I don't think he'll go for those. Steve doesn't believe in eating anything organic. Nor anything containing tofu. Maybe I could make him a peanut butter sandwich with a granola bar on the side? A bowl of yogurt and some raw broccoli? A loaf of bread, a container of milk, and a stick of butter? Hmmm. Perhaps I'll eat a popsicle while I mull over the options.

P.S. There is nothing exciting going on in my life right now. Just in case you were wondering.*

*Actually, now that I think about it, there is something me-related going on right now that is interesting (at least, interesting to me). I've received several reports that I'm in the new Emma Smith film that is playing in movie theaters throughout Utah. I was surprised by these reports, as I'd never actually filmed anything for the movie. Inside sources tell me that the director used footage from the Joseph Smith film (including scenes that were left out of that film). So, I'm in a movie without even trying to be. I have many friends in it, terrific actors all, and I'm looking forward to seeing it. Alas, I'll have to wait until it comes to CA or is released on DVD. In the meantime, if you happen to catch the film, let me know what you think of it!
