Ow!

chilledchimp and I went for a long walk on Saturday. We started at Whitechapel tube and followed the Path of the Ripper murders all round the East End to Spitalfields. We had an interesting time but I forgot to put sun block on my legs. It didn't seem all that hot and my arms were fine. But I was wearing shorts.




It's pretty much the worst sunburn I've had since I was a kid and still hurts today.

Ow. Ow!

As someone who's suffered from the "pink skin" in the past, my sympathies.

I find that moisturiser helps, or even sunscreen (after you are already burnt). Aloe Vera works for me, placebo or otherwise.

I'm more worried about that green patch. Looks like some serious fungal growth you should get attended to.
:p

PS - sorry about the pain.

Thanks for the sympathy guys. I'm pretty much moisturised to the gills now.

I have been chided for exposing my legs to the world. I guess if I'd not done it in the first place I'd be a happier bunny today.

Btw, the photo was taken using the tiny webcam on my Nokia N800 and looks pretty good I thinks (I almost put "methinks" but didn't, which is good as I'd have to shoot myself).

In other news, I've read more Winter's Tale and whilst it's still patent nonsense, the word "dildos" does appear in IV.4. Fnar, Fnar.

Funnily enough, I just finished editing the second edition of "Othello and Other Stories" (a sort of condensed version of Othello, Julius Caesar, etc.), which includes A Winter's Tale, which I have neither seen nor read.

The plot is fairly interesting, actually, in that it's fairly unconventional in a lot of places (a sixteen-year gap between acts?). I also quite like the rather free-ranging Greek legendy way the characters spend a lot of time hoofing around the Mediterranean. Not the greatest Shakespeare ending, but it beats Cymbeline, at least.

p.s. Hope the sunburn doesn't stick around too long.

Ouchie!

I know how uncomftable it can be. Get well soon.
