There's Even a Starbucks Here!

Right now I'm in a conference room at my company's corporate offices in D.C., surreptitiously posting this while "checking my email." I'll be back in town and able to post again tomorrow night (my birthday!).


P. S. To everyone that said I should have used sunscreen to prevent the sunburn - I did! SPF 45, even! Multiple applications! But it didn't prevent the grossness that was the dried, peeling skin on my shoulders.

you know, save for the reptilian aspects of your epidermus, it's still a very sexy shoulder.

Over the past few years, I have moved in to the school of thought that SPF anything attracts the sunlight with it's beautiful sweet-smelling coconut smell.. and the sun eat the shit up like candy - and then all yer left with is a scorching burn...

I went to Mexico three years in a row - the first two times.. i worn sunblock - spf 45 .. I became a poster-child for a burn-victim ...

Last year.. Cancun .. no spf.. no burn... I'm telling ya.. it's a conspiracy to put you into a false sense of security.

Enjoy D.C !!

Eh, sunscreen is for the weak.

I'm not trying to brag, AMG, but I didn't use ANY sunscreen while on my island adventure and I didn't burn once...

OK, once. But I didn't peel.

This is why I am cooler than you.

(Happy Birthday if I don't see you!)

I am a "peeler" to. You need to exfoliate. If you exfoliate then the skin goes away.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!!

Happy Birthday a day early!!!

Some birthday advice -- old school sunburn remedy -- olive oil! You can then rub the garlic bread on yourself afterwards.

Happy Birthday/Feliz Cumpleaños/Feliz Aniversarío!

Maybe it's a chemical burn?

jamwall said...

maybe you're applying it incorrectly.....allow me to demonstrate. i'll need sunblock lotion, candles, somekind of soothing music, and booze.

Thomas, the Retarded Monkey said...

Yeah, you knows, this wouldn't have happened if you had just used sunscreen. You really should use sunscreen, didn't you know that?

Silly AMG, not wearing sunscreen...

Half the time they're just putting curdled milk in those sunscreen bottles anyway.

CJM said...

Of course there's a bloody Starbucks. They're everywhere (even Shanghai. I swear, I have photographic evidence).

And, seeing as everyone else is doing it:
Bon Anniversaire

Sounds like we were in D.C. the same day. Too bad could not have gotten together. I love D.C.! It is such a nice town and nice place to visit. Lucky that your corporate offices are there, which means you probably get to go there often.

Alligator skin huh? LOL
