On the perils of having fair skin....
blaisepascal
I walk to work, about 20 minutes, the first half of which is along a tree-lined street.
I walk home from work, about 20 minutes, the second half of which is along a tree-lined street.
I walk to lunch, about 5-10 minutes, at noonish, with no shade.
I walk from lunch, about 5-10 minutes, at noon-thirty-ish, again with no shade.
Other than that, I spend most of the time inside.

I dislike the feel of sunlight on my skin, and avoid it as much as possible. When I feel sun, get out of it.

I'm starting to get sunburned this year.

Me too. Wear a hat. You may look dorky but, come on, you're a programer. You already look dorky.

Wow! And this is your mother saying this, Bu. Feel the love!! :-)

Of course, on the other hand, I'm not sure my Mom knows the meaning of the term "dorky" so I guess this can be seen as a silver lining.

–adjective dork⋅i⋅er, dork⋅i⋅est. Slang.
stupid, inept, or unfashionable.

Isn't "unfashionable" sort of intrinsic for programmers? Surely you have better things to think about than which hair gel works best.

Virtually anyone has better things to think about than which hair gel works best! :-)

you're a natural redhead with the accompanying very pale skin. you definitely need a sun hat, and it wouldn't be a bad idea to wear a thin cotton long-sleeved shirt as an outer garment when you're walking outside in the sunshine. (SP50 or higher sunblock would also work, but it's a pain in the ass to do that just to walk to and from work.)

i dislike the feeling of sunlight on my skin too. and i don't ever tan, i just burn. in fact, Alex can "prove" i'm a vampire: i'm damaged by sunlight, i prefer to sleep all day and do stuff at night, i'm violently allergic to garlic, and i get very peeved when people brandish religious symbols at me. (although i can see my reflection in a mirror.)



They don't use silver to back mirrors these days.

Just saying...

all my jewelry is silver anyway ;-D
