Well, it is getting to be that time of the year again. Sunny. Hot. I hate summer :cussing:  I have never had a tan. Ever. When I was a teen during the 70's, every summer folk would flock to the beach, with those heinous, silvery solar blankets, and bottles of baby oil and iodine mixed...all in search of that dark tan. I tried to withstand the heat in an attempt at getting tanned a few times, but all that I ended up doing was landing in the hospital with sun poisoning.  :doh: My love for the night and it's soothing coolness has been with me from my early childhood.

Now I am 52. Much wiser. Still as pale as the moon, but with great skin (as you can see in my recent posting, showing off my bald head). And I still cannot stand the sun! I cannot stand the heat. My idea of a perfect day is cloudy and in the 40-50 degree range. Please, don't get me wrong. I am well aware that I have it easy compared to those souls in the deep South and out west, where everyone and everything gets baked. Some people say it must be a Goth thing. Or that I am morbid in my preference for all things dark and cool?

I sometimes feel very much alone in my desire to keep inside with the AC on, only coming out after the sun dips below the horizon. I would have thought that people would in general mature and drop the childish teasing of those who are different. But I was wrong. Even people of my own age kid me for being sun shy, for not embracing tanning, for only willingly coming out when it gets dark.

So how many of my fellow Necromantics feel the same way about summer as I do?   :beer:

Most definitely.  I can tan, but I don't have one now, and haven't had one for a couple of decades.  I'm staring 50 in the face, but I'm better preserved than my incubator was when she was 36.  I only have about 2% of the grey hair she had, too.  But I could use a few cosmetic enhancements, like a tail, longer nose hairs, nose whiskers, and lose 30 lbs, but I don't have enough willpower for the latter, and can't afford the Rogain for the nose and nostrils, nor can I afford tail growth hormone at the moment.  Maybe next year.

You are freakin' awesome Morgan...no one can bring a smile to my face the way you can. I hear you on the weight loss thing, so I figure that if the weight is meant to come off, it will without my help.  As for the cosmetic enhancements, it sounds cool. But you are great, just as you are.  :clap2:

The weight loss thing will NOT be getting my help.  Man, Kerry Gold butter is my HEROIN!!!!!!!!!!  Actually, I'm surprised I don't weigh more, with the way I eat.

You are quite right, Pale One! I see women in the 30's who look like dried up prunes from spending hours in the Louisiana sun and THEN going to tanning salons (aka- skin cancer boutiques).

It's hard down here NOT to be tan, but I go out of my way. Don't get me wrong , I LOVE the heat and humidity, I just prefer cloudy, rainy days. If I go out in the sun for any length of time, you'll see me sporting a black unbrella. People may look at me weird. but for decades, Southern ladies used parasols to shade themselves from the sun. Back in the "day", a tan was frowned upon for women to have. That was strictly a rugged, out-doorsman's thing.

It's healthier for your skin, your hair...YOU...to avoid getting too much sun. I get nauseated if I'm in the sun too long...seriously!

I get migraines from the sun.  It used to be occasional, but now it's more easily triggered; so I have to wear a visored cap, not to mention my hair is so dayam thin; my scalp would burn if I didn't wear the cap.

Have you heard of the "Tanning Mom" from New Jersey, who allegedly brought her 5 year old into a tanning booth with her to get tanned? The kid was noted at school as having a severe burn, and she pointed the finger at her mom.

The Sun Has Baked Her Brains

I rest my case.

Yeah, I saw that a while back. She looks like Betty Crocker over-baked her.... :shake:  That explains her lack of brains!
