Dry and Wet HNT

Today is one of those days where I didn't quite know which way to go for HNT. My initial thought last night was that, since I've been bitching about the constant rain around here, I'd take a picture of doing something outside, looking like a drowned rat. Of course, as soon as I decide on that, the rain lets up this morning. Time for Plan B...

Which didn't take long to come up with. As of this morning, my weekend sunburn decided to start peeling. Ooh! Opportunity! Unfortunately, it hurts like a sonofabitch. You know that scene in Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan? Where Spock delivers his "I have been...and ever shall be...your friend" speech? And his face is peeling off because he stuck it in the radiation from the main energizer (or whatever the hell it was....)? Yeah...that's how my face feels today (be sure to click it for the full effect). None of the skin graft size though. More like flakes of dandruff. Regardless, it's not terribly appealing, I'm sure. And the scalp line is particularly sensitive. It might even start bleeding...

Then I got home, and the rain started back up! So I figured I could go back to my original plan. Unfortunately, when one's hair is as short as mine is these days, the whole "drowned rat" look doesn't quite work. Trust me--I was soaked! Ah, well. You can see that everything's nice and green behind me (be sure to click again for better details). And the water's backing up along the curb to the parking lot. And lots of gray sky (grey sky, for you Canadians). And a zillion or more dandelion stalks left over from the incredibly poor mowing job done by the guys that my apartment rent help pays for.

So you get a double dose of me this week. Hot and peeling. Cold and wet. Surely there's got to be something here that someone will like!
"I have had a fun run with HNT and even though my blog sits untouched and without update, I still hang around the web. I haven't abandoned the blogosphere, I have just been too busy to do too much. Getting an engineering degree and planning a wedding can do that, y'know. *wink*

I have been MG once before and rather enjoyed it. This time around, however, I'm not just a random blogger. I come to you as a bride-to-be! Today is June 9, 2011. This time next week, I will be on a beach in Hawaii, soaking in the sun and rolling in the sand. This Saturday, June 11, in a simple garden setting, I will marry a man I met through blogger and through you guys; it was a mutual blogger that set us up and pushed us to meet. We thank her and her "mothering" push to hook us up.

I have two dresses, neither of which he has seen yet. You get to see one of them first (aren't you special?). This is my wedding dress; the reception will be a month after the wedding (don't ask, it just is) so I can't show you that dress yet. This is just after it arrived, tags still in place, and not completely zipped (there is only so far a woman's arm can twist to zip up a dress by her lonesome self!). Click through for a peek at the diamond he gave me!"


This June bride will be revealed late Thursday afternoon, so be sure to come back to find out who it is!
She's got a couple of different names out here, but most would remember her as Triple L. Her blog is a bit idle, but you can visit her FB page or Twitter. Charisse Lyn - http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100001693159636 and twitter: http://twitter.com/pillow_talker.

Quality, not quantity, over at "...the Other HNT" this week. But still NSFW! Stop by and check out your fellow HNTers, and don't forget to leave lots of comment love!

Mr. Smith said...

Damn! Should have saved last weeks HNT pic for this week! I think it was the "reactor". What? I was a sci-fi nut! Ravens Up!

V said...

We’re up! How many feet does it take for a bed full of fun? Sometimes, the answer is four....but not this time!

Thunderstorms combined with tornadoes and egg sized rain drops here too... Luckily mostly at night.

Your expression is priceless! And your sunburn peel doesn't look all that bad from here.

Happy peeling to you. My face is up for HNT this week.

Take care.

nakedinhighheels said...

Poor you having sunburn and rain. Sounds a little like me except it is my shoulders that are peeling. The rain has been lashing down too so I think I'll stay in today and check out all the other HNT posts.

cliveskink said...

Sounds as though you are having a UK summer out there then. Probably good for the complexion and 'peeled and washed' is always healthy :)
I'm up

I'm up and share an intimate moment from last night.

Get some aloe vera cream on! Weather just the same here, I just avoided peeling this week despite its now raining.

Happy HNT

WE've got sun at the weekends and rain when we're at work. So June has worked out pretty good for us so far.

We're up!

Happy HNT to all!

Ouch, I have burned arms, but not my head.
It has been sunny here too with tantrumes of rain.

I am up!

Happy HNT

Molls said...

I like the juxtaposition. Might be a good idea for a new theme...

JM said...

You win some you lose some!

Funny how its warming up over there, but its starting to suck down here!

I'm up, something came to me and the lights went on!

Mrs. Learning said...

It's hotter than heck here ;) I actually have something sexy on...take a peek!

Joanna Cake said...

Moisturise!!!

We have had torrential downpours and then sunshine and showers - this is a British summer :)

I am up with something a bit less mushy than last week :P

HHNT xx

Maggie said...

Do I need to give you a lecture on sun safety?

Best wishes MG!

BTExpress said...

When will you ever learn? SUNSCREEN!

The MG has a very lovely ring holder.

I'm up and very tired.

IveyLane said...

Hi Os! Aloe vera! Well.... I just felt I needed to add to the sunburn advice theme.

Congrats, MG!! You look absolutely lovely in your wedding dress!

I'm up!

thesecretivewriter said...

wet, dry, covered in sand, or masked with mud, you always look great O's. :)

?uestion said...

Ouchies on the sunburn! I've been making sure to keep the sunblock on me at all times just in case. Hope it heals soon :)

My HNT is up this week!

eyas said...

Your peeling isn't *that* bad. You make it sound like your skin is sloughing off like zombie flesh!

boneman said...

OK, well, in keeping with my positive nature this day, think of it like this...
You're "skinny" again.

Me? I look like a walking boa constrictor that ate a turkey, whole.

(and if you've ever eaten a turkey hole, you KNOW what I mean)

GoodWill said...

I'm up as well...
