As acid on the skin

It burns! It burns!

I went swimming at a friend's pool. Cloud cover and rain would have suggested this a bad idea, except I was determined to enjoy myself. Swimming in the rain is a pleasure, by the way, unless you get electrocuted. Then I can't imagine it would be. But during the spots of only moderate cloud cover, I acquired more than my share of sun on my legs. Now there is pain.

Other shit: She's Got Balls is winding down. I expect to finish it today, fix it up and format the thing and turn it in to my editor. Then it's on to the next project. It's as yet untitled. I would imagine the appropriate words will come to me when I need them. Let's hope, shall we?

Other-er shit: I'm re-reading a book by Bronwyn Green in my free time. She has a unique ability to capture emotion and distill it into a near-tangible mist, substantiating it for the reader in new ways. Kudos Ms. Green.

Note to self: "Mia, find the aloe, apply liberally. Under no circumstances are you to wear hosiery or slacks to work today."

Just wanted to let you know I read Bad Boys, Bad Boys this weekend and I loved it! Mentioned it on my blog today too. Hope your legs feel better soon. Lots of aloe, sooths the pain.

Periodically I bend beneath my desk for reapplication and groans of soothing pleasure. Wonder what the others in the office are thinking.

Thanx! I'm headed over to your blog now. Glad you enjoyed BB.

I'm so sorry you're crispified. Not cool. :(
