Oompa Loompa Syndrome

We have scientific proof of the damaging effects of the sun to our skin and eyes and those of you/us with any sense will decrease our sun exposure.

But, pasty ain't cute and I'm too old to cultivate a Goth look.

Self-tanner has rescued me from glow-in-the-dark whiteness, inherent to my Irish heritage. Application can be a little dicey and if you are at all reckless about it, you'll develop a horrid, orange streaking that no amount of acetone nail polish remover or bleach will undo. Tan palms? Unless you're using latex exam gloves, they go with the territory.

I confess. I didn't do a great job last night. I was the very definition of reckless. But bronze stripes can be hot, right?
