WCB 107 - Prison Heat

Kamikaze found himself imprisoned in his carrot when I rescued my clothes horse full of laundry from the rain that was starting to pour outside. I plunked the drying rack right overtop of him, his carrot, and his fancy leg warmers.

Downstairs there was a racket. Holy YOWLINESS! What's up with all the noise? Can you spot the culprits?

I've heard other parts of Korea have had their share of hot muggy weather, but down here I can't complain too much. We've has a couple short spells of hot, but generally it's been very nice - sunny days and nice breezes. The night temperatures have been cooperating and dropped down to provide pleasant sleeping weather. This past week was the first real taste of summer we got, and the air conditioner was finally turned on at work. Now we get to have the battle of the temperature setting, though. My co-workers seem to like a setting of 25 which makes the machine constantly cycle off. It only takes a couple minutes in the classroom to realize there's no air, and within ten minutes I'm breaking a sweat. So I sneak out and set the air conditioner to 22. Ah, that's better. Constant coolness. Then one of my co-workers notices the revised setting and bumps it back up. We'll continue this battle for the next three months or so.

But, speaking of a taste of summer, what's better than ice cream?

Nothing. Nothing's better than ice cream, I tell ya!

Kamikaze agrees. When he spies something that resembles an ice bream bar or cone he manoeuvres himself to be right beside me and then looks expectantly from me to the ice cream to me to the ice cream.
Gimme!

Mmmmmm! Pistaschioliciousness!!

Ice cream bars and cones are anywhere from fifty to eighty cents here. T'ain't nothing wrong with that, eh?

Now I order you to go see other kitties at this weekend's hosting spot Scamperdude.com. Check out Scamperdude, the rock star super-hero!

Kamikaze, did the ice cream taste good? In my house, my humans call the flavor they eat, "No, no Kitty, this is my ice cream."

Jen,
Soon you will have to buy Kamikaze a new carrot. Loved your post. Hope your summer stays cool. Keep adjusting that air conditioning. I like to keep the temp cool too.

I LOVE this post! Kamikaze is one of the cutest BIG boys I've seen in a while, reminds me of my oldest cat Ozzy (big and plump like Kamikaze). The pics of him eating ice cream are too cute! Thanks for your entry in WCB.
