I miss peeling sunburns! The challenge of seeing how big a sheet you can pull off. 

Also, we had a really good microscope at home (from when Dad was a med student), and it was great fun to look at the skin under it.

Dear body,

I've been using the lovely skin repair lotion to stop the dry skin from happening. You're not supposed to be creating more.

No love,

Reika

I will be traveling to the Univ Tennessee - Knoxville and the Anthropological Research Facility AKA The Body Farm this week, where I will be taking a field archaeology class. I am very excited!

On hand, on foot, maybe even on torso.

Today was classroom only, in the Anthropology building. Tomorrow, we will be doing a surface recovery. I found out that over 50% of their annual donations are older males of European ancestry and they have to turn away 65% of donations due to various reasons. I am very excited for tomorrow!

 Okay, its not as cool as The Body Farm (what is?) but I had my happy little corner of quick today. :)

ThirdDragon just came back from a trip to the tropics, where she suffered an unfortunate bout of seasickness.

You see, she is very fair skinned, and I ensured she left with a big bottle of SPF 60 sunscreen.
She also took care to wear a t shirt too.

On the day in question, she ended up with seasickness all over her T-shirt.
So she took it off.

In the distraction of her discomfort, she forgot to apply the sunscreen.
Then she went snorkeling.
By the time she remembered the sunscreen, it was far too late. She had a bad burn on top of her already mild exposure.

It did lessen her enjoyment of the rest of the trip, but she is home now and recovering.
And itching.
And peeling.
In at least 3 layers.

I spent over half an hour this morning peeling palm-size pieces of skin off. :)
It helped her with the itching, and I got to indulge.

My sunburn this time only came off in little sections.  I was disappointed.
