Where are redwoods? Northern California? I don't know why I am thinking Oregon? I don't even know where Oregon is...

I think my being glandular might be more likely to make me relatively heat tolerant and cold intolerant. I suppose that is correct. I complain about the cold more than most people do. I complain about the heat about as much as most people -- but I tend to over-dress more than most people because I am self conscious about being hairy.

It's a silly sort of self conscious. I'm not hursit. I probably would be really hairy if I was a guy, though. I think I was maybe 5 and some kid pointed out that my arms were really hairy (and theirs were hairless) and then I got self conscious about it and never wore short sleeves again for the next... Few decades. Or similar...

I just mean that the heat knocked me in Canberra similarly to everyone else but they were in short shorts or short skirts and tank tops while I was in jeans and t-shirts or layers of gym gear.

I actually quite liked the Dunedin climate. If I had a house with a heat pump then I didn't mind that climate at all.

It is hard to compare to 'sunny sunny sunny sunny sunny' Canberra, though. And, again, those summer nights where the air temperature is just perfect.

But it would get so hot during the day that you would get mirage distortion. And the air would get sucked out of your eyeballs. Yeah.
