Problems and solutions.

Dig the tan line. In real life it's even worse, but the flash washed out the contrast of the thing. This is after ONE MONTH of driving around in a convertible.

This is the convertible.This is winter in Paradise. Count the clouds.More clouds for you to count. (Notice the sharp detail of the shadows.)The solution! I really recommend this to everyone out there. It doesn't block my pores so I don't look like a 15 year old (I wanna look youthful, but that'd be ridiculous) and it keeps me from looking like ancient crocodile luggage to say nothing of minimizing my chances for getting somethingnoma and having to get things zapped off my face.

It even smells all citrusy, which is nice.

    I'm not making a joke about having your arms waxed, okay?

    Badger might though.

    Dude, my arms are twice that hairy. I'm not saying shit.

    Oh, and I am a fan of that Coppertone Spectra-3 SPF 50 crappe in the white bottle. I think Jujube likes that one, too. So you should be using THAT. But you do whatever. You will anyway.

    But I already got the bottle.

    You'd better get some of Badger's stuff, though. Yours isn't working. I mean, look at your tan line. When you're wearing SPF Gazillion, you're not supposed to get them.

    yep, I love the stuff Badger notes. but Joe, being of that southern European heritage probably doesn't need the Spectra stuff for the same reasons this northerneastern European descendant does--for he is probably not allergic to the sun (literally) like I am.

    also, as a side note on the Spectra stuff: my mom is also allergic to the sun and on her last trip to Bermuda she went to her MD to get some kind of magic sunscreen. he told her to buy this stuff that was $3890548905 per ounce. I had her email the ingredients to me, and guess what it was? that's right--Spectra with a fancy name. that stuff rocks--and I paid DEARLY for not using it in FL last month (lots of sun poisoning and 2nd degree burn on part of my face).

    Um, Poppy.
    It's because I took note of the tan line that I began using the stuff.

    Yesterday.

    I do not want to read about sun and tans and warm weather.
    You are mean.

    Erica,

    I point you to Exhibit A:

    Look at the bottom of the comments.

    HA! Could you make it any more obvious that you want me to reread your post? Like, "um, Poppy, read what I said again so you can see the part where i mention getting all SPF'd because of my tan line."

    So I reread your post, and guess what, it wasn't there. Unless between the lines counts.

    Life being short and free time being scarce, you're just lucky that this post was mostly pictures.

    Or I'd complain.

    [rolls eyes]

    I meant that I have the tan line because I have driven topless and unprotected. The Neutrogena thing is what I am now using for protection.

    HTH,

    Henh henh henh.

    He said "topless."
  • Blogger Badger posted at 11:30 PM, March 18, 2006  
    And I thought Catholics weren't supposed to use protection!

    Since I apply it with a dispenser, it only follows I have a dispensation.
