Man, best heat wave ever. The other night, the guy on the weather mentioned Seattle's all-time record high temp being one hundred degrees, all ooky-spooky like I was supposed to wet my pants hearing that.It was 115 degrees on my wedding day. This weather is absolutely perfect as far as I'm concerned.
Im with ben. 100 as the hottest is a joke!
They think they are New Yorkers.
That's why they're in black.
If they thought they were from Santa Barbara, they'd be wearing light-colored shorts and jaunty tops.
They're required to wear black is my guess.
Hahahaha, "heat wave."
I dressed up as an Aveda girl for Halloween. No one noticed.
They wear black on the outside 'cause black is how they feel on the inside.
And they're still smoking? In 2007? To still be ingesting that poison, in this day and age, with all that we know about it now.... Insanity, truly.
Maybe they think it's slimming?
Which? Smoking or Frying in the sun?
Hairdressers always wear black. Doesn't show the hair, or something like that.
if it is to look slimming it obviously failed for that hambeast on the right. i bet shes a vegetarian to boot.
and when I was 10, it was 110 degrees in the shade in Texas at one time ... so 100 is not that hot ...
Vegetarians are "hambeasts"? I don't get it. Vegetables make you fat?
Fat women who are into fashion opt for the veggie route to lose weight but accomplish nothing!
They didn't go to the beach in all black, they're at work/school.
Wow, aren't you the fella that doesn't know anything about fashion or something? And, fat women that go veggie and don't lose weight aren't really truthfully eating veggie or healthy or light. They're probably slipping in a shit ton of Oreos on the side or something. Or not exercising. Besides, eating meat doesn't automatically make you thin. That's just stupid.
someone who works at aveda is self selectively saying they are into fashion. how hard is that to understand?
i never said anything about eating meat making you thin. i was merely pointing out the folly of career, clothing, and eating habits...
I wonder if there is some sort of cosmic connection between Aveda schools and altweeklies...same situation here in Milwaukee. Just down the block from the Shepherd Express; hoards of people in black with overly coiffed hair.
uh they are required to wear black while working there.
Let's spraypaint this in front of the academy:
Fuck wearing black, bring light clothing back!
ha that was horrible - I need help in the rhyming dept. maybe I can find the eric grandy spraypainters...
June 26, 1990 - Phoenix. It was 122 degrees. And I survived that. (Right now, is where I'd spit a watermelon seed out and say "By cracky")
I live in Tucson. You guys are all wusses.
That said, since I'm moving to Seattle, feel free to laugh at me when I complain about freezing my ass off in 6 months.
Why does that one girl have a cane?
I live in Seattle and I think you guys are all wusses. this is nothing. trust me. Try throwing humidity in the mix and THEN you'll start to know heat. Enjoy it while you can because in 6 months you'll all be whining and dreaming of days like this.
man i hate fatphobic people. "hambeasts"? "slipping in a shit ton of Oreos"?
get a life.
In all those weird places like "Arizona" or "Texas" most every residence is air-conditioned.
The high today in San Francisco was 70 degrees.
It is snowing in Buenos Aires.
are you fat kim? or just afraid of becoming that way?
ive had sex with all body types and fatties are no worse than skeletons when it comes to rocking the sack.
Post pictures of women, get stupid misogynistic comments. THE POWER OF THE INTERNET
This was South Dakota, I think I should note. Meaning 120 in the summer, -60 in the winter. I am not exaggeratingThis is why we moved here. I laugh at your "hot" weather, I laugh harder at your "cold."
What @4 and @20 said. They are required to wear black...
i wouldnt post comments like that unless i knew it gave you purpose to post here.
you need a villian to justify your very existance, just as a donut needs a cop to exist
Just because this isn't the hottest I've ever experienced doesn't mean I'm still not uncomfortable in this heat and can complain about it. I don't get what all these dick-measuring contests about how hot you have/had it where you are/were is all about.
YA, we Seatleites cn make comments and observations about how we feel about the weather.
But when people FROM SOMEWHERE ELSE offer their perspectives, boy that makes me mad! How dare they presume to have any feelings that are valid. They are intruding into my little Seatle bubble of ignorance. WHY SHOULD I HAVE TO KNOW WHAT OTHER PLACES ARE LIKE -- OBVIOUSLY THIS IS THE ONLY PLACE WORTH TALKING ABOUT!!!
So if they comment I will call them dickwads.And yes we're the Nicest People in the World (we just don't give a shit about you).
They remind me of the idiots in Phoenix who own black cars (one of which was J.D. Hayworth, former US Congressman (R-Scottsdale)).
@21 and 22. I lived in Phoenix for 29 years. There I didn't consider it hot until it hit 105, but with the humidity and the lack of a/c, the bar is much lower here.
Also, my kids complain when it's not cloudy.
When I first read this on my RSS feed, I thought Mudede wrote it.
Also, since most Seattlites don't have air conditioning, the threshold of reasonable comfort is far lower than it would be elsewhere. It's 108 degrees here in Las Vegas, but all I can really say about that is Fuck It's Hot. The A/C in my current lodgings offsets that agony when I'm indoors.
I can't imagine what it's gonna be like to return to Seattle and these 96 degree days tomorrow. I'm gonna seek out some air conditioned locales this weekend.
Is a shit ton heavier than a ton? or an assload?
I saw those same girls in the park where I spent a beautiful afternoon enjoying the glorious heat.
Not as hot as Conejo heat, obvz.
The sad part is they are better dressed than most of the people in Seattle. Seattle: the city that has no clue how to dress comfortably, classy and tastefully all at the same time
Seriously. If you've been watching these girls from The Stranger offices for a while, maybe you should have already guessed that they have to to wear black to school. Christ, you could even have asked any one of these very nice young ladies and they would have told you how not a fashion statement their dress is. Black is required, so get the hell over it because at least you don't have to wear it on a hot, unairconditioned day.
Fucking unobservant dumbass.
PS -- I'm on a working vacation in KCMO right now. It's much hotter and more humid here (though I have central air). I am fully aware of how lovely Seattle weather is and I can't wait to get back to it.
I don't care about people from AZ or other hot places. This is western WA, to western WA, this is hot. You live in your 110 degrees (in a fully air conditioned home) and you're fine because that's what you're used to. But when you grow up here, like I did, you're used to MILD temps. I like 60. I love 70. I get uncomfortable with 90 and I HATE 100. I know it was 103 last summer and I was miserable. I live here because of the temps. If I liked hot, I'd move back to Hawaii or go someplace like Florida or AZ. But I don't like hot, so guess what? I can fucking complain about it if I want to. It doesn't make me a wuss. When you come here and freeze your ass off because it's 20 degrees on a winter day, I won't call you a wuss, I'll just call you a tourist.
Hairdressers always wear black. Doesn't show the hair, or something like that.
But it DOES show the dandruff. ;)
-- I nickname them "Bats of the Hill".
I'm pretty sure the color choice is mandated by the academy.
why is this so bizarre? it is a uniform. black hides the hair and most color stains so the potential stylists don't look like too much of a mess. it also makes it less likely that they would wear something that would be considered unprofessional.
i am required to wear black or white at my work, and yes it does suck in the heat, especially on the bus, but come on. this is just weird to me that people find this weird. it is like finding the fact that the employees at target all wear red shirts and khaki pants.
Yo, y'all....black is supposed to mask all the fat.
Sometimes it don't work.
That poor girl didn't ask for her picture to be on the Slog. I can't believe the comments that are being made about her. God forbid she actually cross the street.
As a fat chick who gets yelled at on the street WHILE EXERCISING, I ask, what the hell do you want us to do? Go to a nunnery until every ounce of extra fat you deem disgusting is gone? Starve ourselves thin without moving a muscle until we meet your standards? Buy me a fucking treadmill, asshole, and pay my rent so I don't have to go out in public to go to work, and maybe I will.
This is fucking disgusting.
I agree with this last comment from "fuck you guys". This girl didn't ask to have her picture thrown on the web and have some assholes point out her weight. All the Aveda girls are hot and they work their asses off. They pay a shitload for the program and don't get paid to cut hair all day so let them have a smoke if they want. I've got a friend going to school there and having to wear black everyday isn't her favorite thing.
All the aveda girls wear black and that is the only objective statement you can make.
She has the cane because at the last employee party, she lost at Charlie Craplin.
