end of june sweating like....

a hot end of june. not pleasant to work in. lots of water going down nice. ice packs help. some people took today off to take a four day break with canada day tomorrow. with the euro ending yesterday and the dog days of summer in baseball and the cfl season already underway, june came and went in a hurry. plus my vacation to start june. its been a good month and with july on the doorstep, hopefully its not as hot. the rexall grand prix, the mlb all star game at yankee stadium (the yankees start next year at new yankee stadium), more nascar, more cfl and tomorrow is free agent frenzy tomorrow. oh yeah, hells kitchen's last two episodes of season four is a two parter between petrozza and christine for the title of head chef of a new l.a. restaraunt. and im nearly done watching frasier (im in season nine there), the simpsons (im almost done season 8 and the first 10 seasons were released) and the muppet show (almost done season one, the first three seasons out there and two left). july will be good.
