weekend, life update

Thursday I went tubing with some people in New Braunfels. I’m generally not super excited about water activities, but it was fun and relaxing. It was also really, really hot. I didn’t fully reapply suntan lotion while floating down the river (not really sure why I didn’t, except that I didn’t feel like I was burning) , and thus I ended up horribly sunburned on most of my chest, upper legs and feet.

I’ve been using some aloe lotiony stuff which helped a lot, but even still it’s still sensitive and (worst of all) itchy, especially at night. Saturday night I took a Benadryl which successfully knocked me out, and last night I tried to get by with just some cortisone cream. Gave up on that after a while of itching and not sleeping and took the Benadryl, but it didn’t work as well…got to sleep after about an hour and didn’t sleep well. (neither did djedi, for unrelated reasons)

12 days until our wedding! Everything seems in order and we’re keeping up with our todo list but I’m still generally stressed. Picked up honeymoon tickets, etc. today and I’m looking forward to that part 🙂

A somewhat rambling but interesting talk by Stephen Fry about America’s place in the world.

Propaganda posters for World War III. I think this one is my favorite.

  1. I think it’s a law somewhere that no matter how much you try, if you go tubing you will get sunburned (or rubber burned).
