    I believe the darker the fruit or veg the more carotenoids, so leafy greens, peppers, tomatoes all should help as well. That's the theory anyhow. Berries are about the only fruit I can eat these days and sweet potatoes the only starch, so I tend to eat more of them.

    I've always ate those things but regardless, I think I just have a natural disposition to burn easily. I did read more into using coconut oil for sun burns and I have a little at my desk here in the office and put it on the places I can decently reach without looking like a freak and those areas feel instantly better. Need to get a jar tonight and see where that gets me.

    gotd: You can't even buy a brassiere without having to face down chocolate bars at the checkout counters. There is no escaping sugar at every turn. Damn the greedy-bastard syndrome.

    I was a sugarbaby; meaning since I was born I was given lots of sugar, and ate lots of processed foods, especially sweets until I was into my thirties. Most people in the west were/are sugarbabies.

    Stupid, fracking woman at work - always wants to do things her way, even if another way is easier for everyone else. She shoots everyone's suggestions down. Stupid _____(insert word here). We have to record statistics for the office and there is a shared network drive, but will she put the forms on there? NOOOOOooooo. We have to go to someone else's PC and enter them there.

    This is so true! Even places like Best Buy now have a maze of candy a customer must navigate before checking out. I just wanted a printer cartridge, stop putting candy in my face!

    Stay strong!

    Look for aisles labeled "family friendly". No candy, and no Cosmo. If you have a weakness for earbuds, iTunes cards or hair elastics you're out of luck, though.

    So that's what that sign means.

    GotD: My office has been having construction done, and today they're painting and staining. It freaking reeks in here! At least it's an extra incentive (and an excuse if the boss asks) to go walk around outside.

    To be fair, I have never gone into best buy and said, "Huh, I would really like a box of candy to go along with this new router." I am sure they looked at some kind of market research that said, "Sell candy. They will buy it." So it is a two way street of blame - them for sticking it there in teh first place and people in general for buying the crap.
    somehow I manage to leave my intelligence and decorum at the door wherever I go. I doubt your journal will be an exception to that - not on the rug

    What the F&#* is a decorum? - Mr. Anthony
