Excessive Heat Warning

According to the Style section of the Washington Post, the prediction for 101-degree heat in the Washington area for today is "Satan-in-a-Speedo hot."

I don't know about you, but this alone renders the 2000, Brenda Frazier remake of Bedazzled, with Elizabeth Hurley as Satan, superior to the 1967, Dudley Moore version, with Peter Cook as Beelzebub (though Raquel Welch was appropriately cast as Lust in the earlier version).

UPDATE: This might be a wonderful opportunity for a PhotoShop illustration, but: (a) I can't find a photo of Peter Cook; (b) I'm not competent to use it; and (c) the aesthetic horror would be unfit for viewing.

It is hotter than anything out there. But the good news is my blender is still good and I got ice cubes a plenty. Let the smoothie making commence!
