I am such a sun n00b.

Mostly Lisa the Sun n00b

attacked by a mexican sand bear

Besides failing miserably at putting on suntan lotion evenly, I was attacked by an albino Mexican sand bear! swathhhhhh. After he pawed me, I gave him some tortillas with cheese dip. This seemed to settle him for a bit while I made my get-away!!

    Yowza. That reminds me of my friend’s lesson in sunblock application:

    Take heart–you did better than him.

    What is this thing you call a “sun”? IT has been snowing (yup, as in chilled rain) for the last four days.

    Well Lisa, I feel your pain. And right now you can call me Carlos the pool boy. Put some Aloe on it and don’t let it spoil your fun in the sun.

    *fellow noob raises his hand*

    Last summer I went canoing, put on sunscreen standing up by the shore, and totally failed to take into account that my shorts would ride up when I sat down:

    Haha. I mean ouch. That reminds me of my trip to the South Coast of Spain last year. I got severely beaten by the sun and then managed to get stung by an enormous jellyfish across my chest.

    I was obviously looking amazingly good looking after all that.

    @Scuba Steve — home now. boo. no more sun. aaaand i have flip flop tan on my feet. ouch.

    @Raul — i had a brief affair with the Mexican sun pero nuestra relaciΓ³n era tan caliente para continuar. Voy a perder aunque.

    @Dana — oOOoo zoink! nice one. *giggles*

    @Mark — oh my!!! that sounds painful. how enormous was this jelly fish? i was attacked by a jelly fish towel monster. he didn’t bite, but tried to strangle me to death.
