Tom and I had a very enjoyable labor day weekend. We took it easy Saturday and Sunday (Tom has been sick), and I had to work this morning, but we spent the afternoon wandering around Hollywood. It has been VERY hot and our apartment seems to be at least 10 degrees warmer than it is outside at any given point, so we decided we had to get out of here.
In other news, we are battling a smoker who lives directly below us. He is Turkish and he chain smokes. The smoke goes directly out his window and into ours and, since it has been so warm and our apartment is unbearable if we shut the windows, our apartment is frequently filled with smoke. We have recently been blowing air out of the window instead of in which appears to be helping, but the smoke combined with the heat has been quite unpleasant.
Here are a few pictures from today:
