Beauty writers say that you can find your ideal shade of blush by observing the color of your cheeks after a workout:

I assume they mean the pinkish patches, not the whitish ones.

Also, this photo illustrates why one might avoid bicycle-commuting in the desert. It never quite killed me, but it came close.

I share this old photo to remind those of you who are currently freezing: summer is coming, and that’s gonna suck, too.

    Well, that’s a comfort, of sorts.
    I think I’ll go shovel some snow now, and turn a charming shade of winter pink.

    Awwwwwwwwww! You look so sad in this photo.

    I’m not sure what German summers are like. You’ll have to let us Yankees know.

    Also, it was exciting seeing a JD post show up in my RSS reader. Late Xmas present for your readers!


  • Ouch! I was quickly reminded by my boyfriend that I don’t like summer either. I always think I will but it’s mostly that I like weather between 60 and 85. Which is maybe 60 of the 365 days per year I guess.


  • Rapunzel – Winter Pink! A++ for optimism.

    Mr. Jaunty -Man, I WAS sad.

    Jacob – Word on the street says German summers are fleeting.

    jesse.anne.o – I maintain that summer and winter are equally awful.

    Ugh, I DEFINITELY go blotchy riding my bike, and not just on hot days. I was going to take a comparative picture when I got home one night last week, but then some jerkbutt honked at me for no good reason, so then I was blotchy from anger instead of exertion.

    Curse that jerkbutt!
