The best laid plans of mad dogs and Englishmen ...

Today, I had A Plan™. I was going to get up around 8ish, head out for a bike ride around 9ish, when it would hopefully be not too warm, then come home, relax for a while, then run around doing various errands in our airconditioned car.
I ended up waking up around 9:30 (phone call from real estate agent), and then everything proceeded very slowly after that, possibly due to a little BG II accident last night [1]. I ended up starting my ride just after 1pm, when the temperature reached 40.1°C ... *facepalm*
Still, I melted mostly survived, and now I'm back in the relative comfort of our place, where it's only 29° inside, or 31° upstairs in the bedroom. *runs away to put a/c on*

[1] Baldur's Gate II, that is. A new party I started a few weeks back - this time, with almost no mods (since I've been playing more and more heavily modded versions of the game over the past few times, I thought it was time to go back to basics - well, except for a couple of essential components of the Ease of Use mod - because I'd be happy to never hear the message "You must gather your party before venturing forth" ever again :-) ).
