Using my blog to try and make the world a better place. If I can help someone forget their troubles for a few minutes a day, it's all worth it.

I watch the ripples change their size, but never leave the stream of warm impermanent sand. So the days flow through my eyes but still the days seem the same. And these children that you spit on as they try to change their world are immune to your consultations. They're quite aware of what they're going through.

Getting Tan:

Being tan was huge back in the day. I know it will always be in vogue, but back then we weren't aware of the risk involved in getting too much sun. People even used baby oil to speed up the process. I never needed to work at it, after a few days in the sun I get really brown. The above is a 1974 Coppertone ad. With a blonde. Who's the spitting image of Malibu Barbie...
