I'm still alive, only I'm very badly burned.


Not much to report over the last couple of days. But a couple of things worth noting.

My buddy Eric and I are WAY too into reality shows. Today's proof? He assembled a list of 5 guys and 5 women in our collective department at work, and had me decide how a Big Brother season consisting of only those 10 would play out. The winner was Matt, the guy who originally beat me out for the job here last summer.

My sunburn is subsiding, but it's leaving a lot of tiny zits and blisters on my chest, which are both fun and gross to pop. I'm surprised how little this has bothered me. The last time I was burned this bad was when I was at Disneyworld for a week when I was 12. I got so burned then, that even with aloe vera gel all over my back, I hurt so much that I couldn't get myself to lie down and go to sleep. Now, there's a small twinge of pain when I first lay down, and when I change positions, but otherwise it really doesn't bother me.

I put in my application for my new apartment today. I won't get the one on the ground floor like I wanted. In fact, all the units available right now are third floor, which will make for some pain in the ass lifting come moving day, but otherwise it looks like everything will work out. My roommate/landlord took the news of my leaving quite well (although that could have been influenced by the fact that he just came back from a weeklong vaation in which he got engaged). He hasn't even taken this month's rent check yet.

Can't wait till next Friday. Get to go down to Philly with one of my coworkers, see one of my childhood friends, get a genuine Pat's Cheesesteak (won't go to Geno's cause of their new anti-immigrant policy, despite the fact that their steaks are better), and see a Phillies game, when, holy shit, we're actually back in contention. Should be great.

WildWon, I can relate to the whole sunburn thing.

Next time you are in the sun try...Water Babies. I know, sounds funny. It really works!! Since I started using it, I haven't once burned, blistered or turned red.
