It's Time!!

I've packed the camera bag and have all my travel sized toiletries set out, including the Imodium and sleep aids, ready to pack. The suitcase is almost ready to go...'cause guess what! India here I come!!!! I have to work a few hours, attend a mini conference and then I'm off to the airport. I have an 11hr layover in London, England. I'm hoping to see at least a few of the sights there before boarding the flight to New Delhi. I'm counting down the hours!!!!! hehehehhehehe ok that's supposed to be gleeful laughter.....

Call me Dumb and stamp me Done!!

In preparation for my upcoming adventure in India I looked up the weather and realized that although it is their winter it might as well be my summer. Daytime highs from 27 - 30C. HOT! You all know I am as white as a frog's underbelly; that I glow under blacklight. Have skin so light I can't by foundation to match. Pathetic. I've been seriously worried that I will severely fry my skin and blister up so badly that I will have wasted a trip. So, I thought, why not try a tanning bed? Who me? The sun-shunner? Ya, I signed up.......4 min the first day, 6 the next, 8 on Thurs. I was a little pinkish but so far getting darker. I got brave. I asked for 9 min. on Friday. STUPID!!! I am now glowing red. At least it's not painful, very much, and it's not blistering. It's only a little burn on all the bits that have never seen the sun. Yup, I tanned nude.....why? I don't know! And now I am paying for it on my sad, pink, pudgy belly.
