Heatwave in L.A.? Here’s where you’ll find locals and tourists cooling. Santa Monica Beach on a hot, hot, hot afternoon.
I understand Waldo was hiding in Santa Monica last Sunday, when Los Angeles was going through another heatwave… 🙂
Would you rather live where it is always hot or always cold? If I had to choose between extremes, I’d rather live where it’s always hot. But we live in Los Angeles, where we have a desert climate, which means it’s mostly hot/warm all year long, but nights are usually cool and humidity is low. To me, that’s perfect. No snow to worry about, no shoveling, no frigid weather to deal with. Here we just worry about wildfires and earthquakes. By the way we just had a shallow 3.0 magnitude earthquake here in Santa Monica about 2 hours ago. Just a big jolt and a bang. So far, no aftershocks…
Do you prefer long hair or short hair for yourself? Definitely not short. Have had it and wasn’t happy. These days I like a longish but not too long hair, in a modern bob.
What is your favorite month of the year? When I lived in Washington, D.C., October was my favorite month. That’s when autumn hits the region, the trees start changing colors, the air is cool and delightful. Here in L.A. months are very similar but autumn months are also nicer. So, I guess I’ll stick with October, which is also my birth month. 🙂
What is the easiest way for you to learn something new? By reading, by seeing and doing, in a classroom? I am definitely a visual learner. I also learn from listening to interesting lectures and conversations. I have no patience for reading instructions, for example, which gets me in trouble sometimes. So I guess I can say I learn better by seeing and doing.
Optional Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up? I’m grateful that last week, Kaya, our family dog (she is really our daughter’s but we think she is ours), recovered quickly from an injury she suffered (we don’t know how it happened) that left her unable to climb stairs and with difficulty running. She was very depressed… Some acupuncture and muscle relaxants helped her recover quickly. And for next week, I’m looking forward to visiting beautiful San Francisco! We’ll spend the whole week there, starting this coming Sunday and returning the following Saturday. I’m very excited about that!
