I have two settings: ghost and boiled lobster. I used to get so jealous of my sisters because they would get tan over the summer and I would not in spite of spending the same time outside. But at least I never have to worry about tan lines. ^.^

Glad you had a fun day,Aranna, and I'm sure the tan lines won't be that bad. :)

Thanks.

Hmmm... there is a skill involved in tanning. Perhaps your sister knows the skill and you do not? Really it is as simple as knowing what sunscreen works best for your skin type and applying it correctly. A skill I made a point to learn after going to Florida when I was six and ending up a boiled lobster by the time we came back.

I have no idea what tans are.

Mmmm. Lobster.... Homer Simpson drool

You were born tanned, the rest of us have to work at it.

Might lose another melon plant as the dog steps on it because I stupidly planted it where the rabbits come through the fence. Or as we call it during the day The Bunny Highway. At night it takes a darker turn as the owl turns out yard into a killing field. Also we have a Muskrat in the field, saw it trying to climb the fence. A big one too.

I love spring!!

sounds like a lot of commotion. Winter sounds much calmer.

I like a commotion, winter sounds boring.

Nah, it's just my phenotype. I've tried all the sunscreens. None of them can teach my body how to produce melanin. :P

Well I finally got to play a character last night as opposed to running the game. We started this last night. Good stuff


That's awesome! Way to go, TFY!

lynora: uh... sorry I've been slow to PM you! I've been super busy about now (school ending for my eldest and for my wife; end of the soccer season; we've been sick; I've been trying to run a game for my wife in the mean time - we've, uh, finished a prologue and one whole encounter -; and so on), and I'm suuuuuuuper flaky about online games anyway (it's why I put the scar of destiny on that character as a kind of self-joke). I'm sorry!

Me too. Fortunately ghost is sexy. Well, I think so. This may have something to do with the first girls I ever knew admit they liked sexual things being goth chicks when I was in middle school. That tends to skew your perspective at an early age. So yeah...sexy.

At least in women it is. Men it's sort of "you look sickly." I think it's because precedent has been set with women of all shades having good bodies in the media, but I've never heard of a ripped pale white guy. Every good looking white guy in good shape seems to spend hours at the beach. You never see porcelain abs.

Ah the English look (or as my French friend says; "the English lobster"). As for ripped pale guys; google 'Sheamus WWE', but he's the only one I can think of.

No worries. The offer doesn't have an expiration date. So you can get back to me in a couple of weeks if that works better for you. I totally get the whole end of year thing. Our school just lets out super late so we still have three weeks after this one. Two weeks from now I'll be all like ack! Why are all the things in the last week?! :)

Anyone else ever notice that Pachelbel was kind of the original one hit wonder? I mean, seriously, how many repeats of Canon in D is Pandora going to churn out for me? Did the man write anything else?

Some people put on dark metal when they're depressed. Not me. It's all about the symphony. Dark metal is for when I'm in a good mood.

...damnit I'm so bored.

Danny Elfman has some cool orchestra stuff.

LOL
No wait I shouldn't laugh.
Because now I know what those cords are.
Is knowing half the battle? No...
Knowing is now having to now recognize Pachelbel in SO many tunes and kind of ruining the magic.

I don't go brown or red. I go from Slightly Off White to Slightly Less Off White, and back.

Not trying to crab on anyone who does like it, but Pachebel's Canon in D drives me nuts. Endless, dreary, strung-out cycle of 5ths - agh!

Oh, no, I knew about that standup routine from long ago. It's great!

My roommates in college were three members of the FSU marching band, two of which were music majors, all three of them in the music-themed fraternity. You pick up a few things, even if you're musically challenged personally. I can't sing, and I'm terrible at picking up musical instruments, but I sure know a lot about it!

You do realize art gallery season is just ramping up here, the General hangs with the gallery crowd, they've been talking about going to more art galleries, and old eye glasses cost two bucks at vinnies.

There goes my summer.

Haven't used our A/C yet this year, it's been 80 or above every day for the last week.

What's our secret

We have a kiddie pool we fill up every day, when you get hot, stand in the pool for five minutes, lowers your body temperature right away.

I have to work tonight.

It should be illegal to make a person wear pants in summer like weather.

Edit: I should probably add I'd like to wear cargo shorts instead of pants.

What would they do if you went into work in a kilt?

Send me home I'm sure, they're very specific on pants. I could wear form fitting stretch pants. But then I'm just being obnoxious. :-)

Aren't you indoors with air conditioning for the one job that wants you to wear pants? What's the big deal?

Or is this the landscaping?


2 people marked this as a favorite.

I am amused that Captain Yesterday and I are complete opposites when it comes to pants: I find baring my legs unbearable. I cannot stand shorts of any kind.

Now, *if* I could get away with wearing a nice sun dress, I think *that* would be pretty styling.

But even this close to San Francisco, such attire is frowned upon among the middle-aged white male population.

EDIT: And let's be blunt: I suspect if I tried to show up at CY's job in my Chefwear pants, they'd send me packing in spite of them being at least technically "pants".


1 person marked this as a favorite.

Yes, I work inside. But It's pretty physical, those beds, bikes and power wheels don't haul themselves out to the car. So the air conditioning doesn't really affect me much. Also I get carts and really any other excuse to get outside.

So, I spend as little time inside as I possibly can.

And really, it doesn't really matter what the temperature is, I'll wear shorts.

Hilarious enough, I used to be like Nobodyshome, I once went five years without wearing shorts, then when I was getting ready for work landscaping and my last pair of clean pants ripped, all I had was a pair of cargo shorts my girlfriend (the General) had gotten me. I was hooked from then on.

Actually, if it's mostly black, and you work in the back like I do, they're okay. The bike assembly guy wears the black and white polka dot chef's pants. :-)

I've always wondered why are chef pants so damn ugly?

It's like Hawaiian shirts - apparently someone was like "these are too comfortable to make in plain colors - that would sell like crazy - find a way to make them ugly as s&!+."

Exactly. They're "ugly as s%*!" precisely to prevent the unworthy from wearing them.

Surely a Hawaiian shirt is just a regular short-sleeved shirt with a collar, covered in vivid tropical prints?

I'm guessing the 70s, and 80s are involved in the garish colors.

It's not just a shirt. It's a lifestyle.

But mostly it's a shirt.

Yes, but made of the glorious heat-resisting super-breathing materials rayon or silk. In Florida those materials are a godsend worthy of actually putting up with their ugly patterns.

It's very difficult to find the same cut of a button down collared silk or rayon shirt that isn't in an ugly as s$%$ pattern.

In stores. Obviously, you can find it online, like you can find damnnear anything.

By pretty much any other matric, San Francisco has better public transit than my native San Jose, but San Jose has the most comfortable seats by far. Sitting in one right now, and they are nice. They have fabric cushions, while San Francisco has plastic. Then again, they must be hell to clean, and I bet the homeless population wreaks havoc with them. Which would probably be exactly why San Francisco uses plastic.

Hawaiian shirts are for dudes who are just too chill to give a damn.

No, that would be slacks and a blue button down collared shirt.

That's the main show. This is the spin-off series!

Though in truth, I knew so little about the show that I wouldn't have been able to say for sure whether or not that guy ever wore stuff like CY, if that's a thing in the show. I never watched it, and was only aware of it by way of the rather constant and obnoxious advertisements for it on tv.
