What is the best to way to stay cool?

I have returned home from a weekend visit to my parents' home, and my Central air unit is not working. I live in a singlewide mobile home, so it is sweltering hot. I have been quite fortunate in the fact that I have not had to endure the heat this summer until now. But my friends be assured that I am sharing the pain today. I guesstimate that the air probably stopped working late Friday night or Saturday before lunch, because it was registering over 100 degrees on the thermostat and 112 on a thermometer hanging on the wall. Whew! I am dripping sweat over my nose as I type now. I have raised all of the windows that have screens (4) and there's is barely a breeze, so I also placed a fan into one of the windows to try to pull in the cooler air from outside, but now I am thinking (after an hour of no relief), maybe I should be pushing the hot air out the window? Any suggestions?
