WARNING! Full Sized View Is Pretty Damn Gross.

What better way to start a Friday than with pictures of peeling skin? Okay, I can think of a number of things, but I'm going to post these anyway.




P.S. I'm turning on word verification for comments. I'm so sorry to do that (I hate sites that have it), but I've been getting slammed with comment spam lately. Which is not nearly as good as real Spam. But you can still post anonymously (just for you, anonymous hater who hasn't posted in a while!), and I've seen some of the other blogs that have it, and the words are really easy to read and not that unrecognizable shit that some sites try to make you decipher. Please don't let this stop you from commenting, because my air supply comes entirely from the comments I receive, and if you stop commenting, I will die.

Eeeeewwwwww gross us out why don't you..show us the pretty navel, then show us this gross picture!

It looks like old peeling wallpaper, and pretty painful too..glad I looked at this before lunch!

Trée said...

Wasn't sure what I was looking at, at first. Mmm, think I like the belly shot better--lol. If you need some suntan lotion, give me a holla, got plenty here ;-)

Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment--always nice to see. ;-)

Nytro said...

i'm sure you didn't really need tha top layer of skin anyway.

Vagina Terrorist said...

I think you have lepracy.

I'm only in Chicago so you're somewhere close to me. Do me a favor and get yo ass quarantined.

SirTalksALot said...

SNAKE MOLTING! OH wait, that's just an Anonymous Midwest Girl peeling off her ENTIRE back.

kate said...

Holy crap! That's just awful. Have you never heard of 90 SPF? LOL.

S.C. said...

Mmmm, sunburn.

:)

I've had a couple of those bad-peelers.

eatmisery said...

All I can say is "loofah" and "moisturizer." Yikes.

Elemmaciltur said...

*URGH* thank goodness I decided to take a look at that after dinner! *LOL*

Thanks for your comment on my blog! How did you even end up there in the first place??

Oh, BTW, how did you change the 'comment' into your own words??? I tried tweaking around the template once but didn't have any success.

Exfoliate! Exfoliate! Just don't peel too much off of the healthy skin and then go back out into the sun.... from personal experience it's pure hell.

Birdy said...

Hey - I don't know much about peeling skin or sunburn or any of that. But thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting! So you know, that was the writer Laurel Thatcher Ulrich that said that thing about women. Perfect comment. Dead on.

Anonymous Midwest Girl said...

This is actually from yesterday during the day - I had exfoliated the hell out of it in the morning, but this is what developed as the day progressed. I exfoliated again before I went to bed, and then again this morning. Most of the brown flakey skin is gone now, so it's just this wide berth of tender pink skin across my shoulders.

And Kate, that's with hourly applications of SPF 45!!!!

Sangroncito said...

I hear peeling skin is full of protein!

Carly said...

Yagh, that's nasty. Do NOT get a sunburn again this summer or it will be much worse.

As for comments, I agree completely. The only way to make the word verification fun is to include the word in your comment and make it an acronym

jxgdx - (this one sucks! Two X's! )
Junior's X-ray Gave Dad xsomething... darn...well, you get the idea

Spencer said...

OMG That like me when Daisy came down to visit me but I was drinking and thought the Florida sun wouldn't hurt my Florida ass but I was so wrong!

Have a great weekend!

TYSEN said...

Are you sure your human? I've never had it go brown like that, must have been that exfoliating? I like peeling off normal sun burn, for some reason I really like the noise it makes. But that's only when it soft and white...

Mr.Brian/Mr.Fletcher said...

That looks like it might have hurt really bad when it happened. I think the pix are cool....and thanks for stopping by. It was nice getting a comment from you. ;)

beggers' feet get greasy x-spots certainly & easily

K2 said...

oooooooooh that looks like me after spending all day in the bleachers at CWS. I feel for ya babe... really, I do... and please don't take that the wrong way.

ovhkbji
wow, that almost spells out a place where you could go do that all over again!

Gsquared said...

dont be TOO discouraged at your skin's decision to leave you. You'll find some NEW skin... some BETTER skin ... Skin that deserves you. That skin never treated you any good ANYWAYS. :-p

Jim said...

ttPerhaps a nice Bon Voyage party is in order.

Wow, did someone fall asleep in the sun?

Rei Ubu said...

Tadinha é vitiligo?

Quero dar um tapa na tua cachorra.

kate said...

Hourly applications are no longer sufficient, especially if it's only SPF 45. You have to slather the stronger stuff on every chance you get, nice and thick so the sun doesn't penitrate. LOL.

CJM said...

What did you do to the sun? It doesn't seem to like you too much.

E said...

My shoulders (particularly my right one) looks just like this right now! Yuck. And to make it worse, I compulsively peel it. I know, nasty, but I can't help it!

Thanks for visiting earlier.

Ruben said...

Aloe vera! You need Aloe Vera!

Ruben said...

I am posting again but this time I am posting a photo of you!!!! Yes...I have photos of you!!! Click here for the best shot of you ever! :-)

Vagina Terrorist said...

I was reading through some of these comments... very interesting group out there in internet land. I love how all the guys rush to the need of the poor, little Midwestern girl out of the goodness of their hearts. I imagine something like all these guys going into gay mode saying things like "Oh Jeethuth Chrythst, yew need tew pewt Aloe awn that" or "yew jus need tew moisturize" (notice there was no correction to moisturize since that is a pretty gay word). Oh wait, do these guys really care about nurturing this poor girl??? Hell no, it's b/c she's hot. Too funny.

word verif = eexew

sage said...

The price we pay for fun, I hope your peeling is quick. Your canoe trip sounded wonderful. If it had rained the whole time and no sunshine, you wouldn't had the peeling problem, but you'd been miserable.

Sean said...

Sort of reptilian....yet you don't look like a reptile. Hmmmmmm, interesting.

*Natalia* said...

It makes me want to skip tanning today. On the plus side though, your hair looks healthy.

Anonymous Midwest Girl said...

Carly, I like the acronym idea. That should be a requirement from now on.

K2, CWS?? That's in my part of the world. Crazy! I've burned from that plenty of times!

Rei, I'm not so good with the portugeuse, but Muito bom!

Ruben, the resemblance is disturbing!

Eazy, yes, all males are kind and giving and just want to help. Looks have nothing to do with it! Right??? Right???

Natalia, hahahaha, that's so funny. I had the same thought. "Wow, that's gross, but at least my hair looks good!"

And after I just wrote that the word verification seemed pretty standard, I get one I can't decipher. I think it's atshcbw...

Karlos said...

The last time I was peeling like that I think I was 9 years old or so. Yuck!

Osbasso said...

Hey! Welcome to HNT!! I didn't know that you were out here! The belly button was a nice virgin entry, but the shoulders clinched it! Hope you'll keep up with it!

I'll get you listed on the Nekkid roll. Be sure to stop by and check out all the other half-nekkid people running around out there!

Walking Wounded said...

Sheesh, you're gonna have skin like a rhino! j/k Damn I hope it doesn't hurt irritate too badly.

Peace

evercurious said...

adYou really get your air supply from comments? Me too!

MrCorey said...

You should be breathing ok, then :)

I actually like that kind of comment verification. I was going to try to use that method instead of the email one, but my webhost won't allow me access to the required libs on the server. Ah well.

LOL Ruben. Looks like AMG (but you'll look different soon :))

Chixulub said...

I'm sexy bitch, but those peeling shoulders, I can't compete!

pdgonz said...

I still think you look great AMG.

Derek said...

Damn thats bad that shit had to hurt and still does

Captain Bee said...

Okay, that shit is pretty gross. But Derek is right, that ain't ticklish.

jamwall said...

a good wire brush should get that all off, then you sand followed by at least one good coat of primer, then you can start painting! start with the trim first, then you can paint the rest of the surface and whola! a brand new AMG!

Justice said...

Poor thing, it looks like you got a really nasty burn. At least you had a good time getting it.

AlRo said...

Y'ouch.. that's all i need to say !

Johnny Menace said...

anyone else get hungry after look at that skin?

Wez said...

Cripes! That does suck!

sirreene said...

you must have shed by now?

Daphnewood said...

there went your entire summer tan! all those hours....

john boy said...

Oh no, your poor beautiful skin!

Can I peel some?

Tony said...

by the beard of zeus...your molting...

Me said...

Oh, you poor thing. I get that nice tan thing and then my skin decides to revolt and go back to pale, midwest white.

I feel for you :)

~*Bettie said...

EVERYONE!!!

If you need the link, I've posted it!!

Vote for Green Day to get the Viewers Choice Award tonight at the Video Music Awards in Miami!


GO GREEN DAY!!!!

ers said...

You know, my skin peels like whenever I go to the Caribbean because I forget the sun is stronger there, but how in the name of the late JC did you manage to do this in the midwest?

:phil: said...

Ewwwwwww!
Are you saving it?

grody jo-dee said...

i will start taking donations for your case of sunscreen. (it's on the way)

Avery said...

Yikes! That looks pretty bad. You poor thing.

The Foxybrown Show said...

So....How was the weekend?
Was it FOXY??

LocuTus of Borg said...

Wyouch!! That must have hurt right after. I got a little peeling after being at the water park last week, but nothing like that. Hope you are doing well. I guess turning on word verification didn't get people away hahaha.

Kristi said...

Stay out of the sun! Yeah, I'm not one to give that advise.

I did the same word verification on mine due to spammers...bastards. I was all excited one day when I logged into email and saw all the comments, then I went and actually read them. What a disappointment!

I love Linkin' Park! Their best songs are the ones never played on the radio.

Dirk the Feeble said...

I can't believe 59 people commented on that. Weak.

Also, you aren't doing a very good job of being anonymous if you're posting pictures of yourself. That made me laugh, "Anonymous Midwest Girl" with a photo right next to it. Now THAT'S funny.

Tawcan said...

Ewwww for god's sake, use sunscreen!!!!

exile said...

you're all purdy like ma snake!


seriously, no worries about the comment thing, i was getting slammed pretty hard too. it's worth it (i was getting 10 in a row every day)

The Other Half said...

yum

Marie said...

oh no! have you shed most of the skin off by today? ;-) I've been there too, girl. lol

Marie said...

Danielle said...

wopanese said...

mmm... get in mah belly!

Anonymous said...

Just wanted to be the first to officially say it as near to your Birthday as I can possibly get:

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!

25 YEARS YOUNG.

I trust you will make it a memorable one.

Jaxe said...

"it puts the lotion on its skin" (Silence of the Butterfly) heheehhee. I think I have your missing skin pieces lying around here somewhere in one of my patchwork "quilts" ;-)

*slaps self* hehe.

Jenny said...

Ew---haha! Get some of that new sunscreen that you just spray on---no gloppy sloppy mucky sunscreen.

Roonie said...

I have to be the voice of reason here. That scares me! Not just because it's kinda crazy lookin', but what about sun damage? That looks massive. Go to the doctor. I am worried about you.
