I won't complain about the temp here anymore, then... Right now it's 11pm and it's at 26 ºC (78.8 ºF) with 87% humidity. But during the day it can get and has gotten as high as 39 ºC (102.2 ºF) with as much as 90%+ humidity. The weather is all sorts of crazy. It's the rainy season, so you never know when it's going to pour, and I do mean POUR. The other day there was an electrical storm and there was even HAIL! Hail in the tropics. Scary.

39MrsLee

#40, 41 Kitty likes to lie on top of the TV. Well, since I don't have cable anymore I've never turned it on once since I moved two months ago, so there's that... (*)

The other cat that lived with me up until three months ago liked to sit on top of the TV too. And whenever I was watching DVDs and I paused for a while and the Samsung logo screensaver came on the screen, the cat would paw at the bouncing logo, looking at the TV upside down from where he was perched. It was adorable :)

(*) When I trade my old CRT set for a new flat screen in a couple of months, I don't know where Kitty will sit, but mos def *not* on the TV!

What is news is that I've heard rumours recently of new software preloaded with the editorial requirements of almost all journals. Dump your text in (with your headings marked as Heading 1/2/3 etc.) and it'll format it automatically. Combine it with your favourite bibliographic software and editing just became a whole lot easier.

I loved the balloon animals - so often cartoon animals are too cutesy but aren't affected by the way they are drawn - these ones behave as they are shaped. I love the crocodile that can't submerge or even reach the water to paddle with his stubby little legs.
