Aloha Friday: Thermostat

7/23/10
blogging memes, writing prompts

Here is how Aloha Friday works from Kailani's blog An Island Life:

In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So I thought that on Fridays I would take it easy on posting, too. Therefore, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response.

We're going through another heat wave here in Maryland. It's about 98 right now and only going to get hotter. We've been keeping our thermostat set on 73 to try to save on energy. Hoping not to get hit hard by the electric bill this month.

My Question for You This Week: What do you set your thermostat on during the hot summer months?

My Teaser:

"It worked my suspense up to the highest point, and just as I was thinking the tree and I should fall together, my teacher seized my hand and helped me down. I clung to her, trembling with joy to feel the earth under my feet once more. I had learned a new lesson-that nature "wages open war against her children, and under softest touch hides treacherous claws."

I have been browsing eBay lately to see if I can find any maternity deals. I especially looked for a maternity swimsuit because I know mine may not last the summer with how my tummy keeps popping. But most of the swimsuit deals that I find are on USED swimsuits. Which led me to wonder.....

My Question for You This Week: Would you buy a USED bathing suit on eBay? What do you think about it?
