Pony flop
I think Foal accurately expresses how a lot of us feel as this heat wave heads into its fourth week.

The bloke and I both worked full days. Afterward, I raced around and collected the children in time to catch a train into town to meet him and his students, who had their graduation ceremonies for their PhDs today. We had a tasty meal at a gigantic Asian buffet. The adults refrained from eating our body weights in curries and pakoras, but the children showed no such restraint, particularly with respect to the endless fruit platters and the chocolate fountain with marshmallows.

By the time we caught the train home, it was well past the children's bedtime, and although technically it is a little too early to be mine, I will be going to face-plant into a pillow moments after pressing the "post" button.

Much as they're enjoying it, all the Brits are a bit panicky, like, "Where are we? What's happening? This isn't Spain, for pity's sake."

Oh yeah, it was so tasty. Also overwhelming trying to choose! Also also, very spicy. I got some of the nibbles (pakoras, samosas, bhajis) for Keiki before I'd tasted them, and as soon as I had a little bite of each, I was like, "Yeah, I know you can take a bit of heat, little dude, but Imma remove these from your plate. Enjoy your papadum." :P
