the great gatsby

As is typical of DC, we've made a sudden transition right past spring and full on into summer. I guess that is what happens when you build a city over swamplands. Not prepared for the change (as usual!) we have yet to get our air conditioners out of storage. Miss Audrey Superkitty and I have been lazing around the house today, her in her fur coat and me in a vintage slip, doing our absolute best to function in the unexpected/expected heat. Who knows why it popped in my head, but this morning while catching up on some of the blogs I follow I caught myself thinking of the beginning of The Great Gatsby where Daisy and Jordan are lounging on couches, "They were both in white, and their dresses were rippling and fluttering as if they had just been blown back in after a short flight around the house."
