Nice gams! Or…springtime in the Rockies

Three things:

  1. I am 35 years old
  2. I am extremely fair-skinned
  3. I have been on antibiotics more times than I can count

You would think I would remember those three things on a day when we hit a delicious high of 79 degrees on a March day. On a day where there was not a cloud in the sky, where the sky was a rich cobalt blue. On a day when the sun shone with a smile on its face, whistling a happy tune with the pure joy of such a day.

You would think.

Because if I had remembered those three simple items, this wouldn’t have happened in the hour I sat outside:

lobster legs

The picture does not do the sunburn justice. I am glowing. Please ignore the, um, chubbiness of those legs, and yes, they really are that long thanks for asking. I never burn from sitting out for an hour, it was the antibiotics.

And the painful punchline? Tomorrow it’s to be cold and rainy and I must put blue jeans over these gams. Ouch.

What the creepy hell is this?

You never know when or where you’re going to see something so outrageous, so disturbing that you feel the need to share it with the internets. I figured I was safe cutting coupons. I was wrong.

The hell is this?


I may not be able to sleep tonight.

Fun Sunday: Mr. B Natural

For the second Fun Sunday in a row, I’m featuring another MST3K video. This is the one that had me searching YouTube; Tom used to have a videotape copy of this and it was so old and the quality was so crappy that we stopped watching it. The quality here isn’t very good either, but I blame the original filmstrip. It’s old and crappy and it’s a miracle it lasted into the digital age for us to mock.

Tom and I are both former band directors and current (sorta) musicians. We still go to music conventions and see the elaborate setups that instrument manufacturers display the latest and greatest. So to see this craptastic piece of marketing put out by the Conn company back in the dark ages of marketing…well, it’s best served by being on MST3K. Again, a fine waste of 20 minutes, especially if you have a band background.
