Caught up in the trivial.

I have two things on my mind.

1) Finding someone to see Jarvis(swoon)Cocker with me.
Yes, I could go alone. I would, however, prefer to have someone with me. More fun with company, if you will. The only two people who I can think of who might be interested/go along to laugh at my swooning are both overseas. Bitches. I need to find some more friends. Jarv loving friends.

2) Sunscreen.
I need a decent non-greasy olivey-skin-loving sunscreen. One that won't sweat off in a hurry or make my pores feel clogged or make my face feel shiny and greasy. Suggestions would be welcome. It does not need to be tinted - I tint up naturally even with the sunscreen - just good and not icky-skin making.

There is no such sunscreen, which is why I wear a 45cm wide hat and lots of clothes.

I'm not a huge fan of hats. They make my head feel far too hot.

You'd think they'd've invented a decent sunscreen by now, wouldn't you?

Pith helmet? With ventilation holes? They're designed to let the air circulate above your head, purpose built for hot and muggy climates. I foresee your objections, by the way, and all I can answer is "Newtown" and "short hair".

As for sunscreen, it's pretty extraordinary stuff. It worries me a bit, actually, what has to go on to allow a thin layer of grease to prevent UV light from messing with your dermis. How does it do that, exactly? And does the sunscreen mess with your dermis anyway?

Short hair and me don't mix. Too much cutting, too often, is involved.

Sunscreen is wicked good while still being oddly lacking. I refuse to let the science of it bother me.

I like both hat and sunscreen. I recall the brand of sunscreen in the round, pale blue container with the dark blue lid as a non-greasy sort. Or just less greasy. It has a sort of sun and waves logo thing on the bottle. How's that for brand identification, huh? Not that anyone will need sunscreen on this superbly rainy weekend, hooray!

Ah, Mitzi, what you do for brand identification I do for directions. 'It's on the side of the road next to such and such with the cool things in the window, near that tree...' I shall look though.

I really wish I could see JC with you, I've loved him since 1994. I saw Pulp play live but have never seen him solo. I'm loving 'Further Complications' and still think no one rocks a cardigan and specs like he does.

nailpolishblues said...

Ah, a JC fan but so very far away! I may have to go alone. That would be tragic but it's Jaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaarvis!

I've never been to a gig on my own and would probably only ever do it for Jarvis. He's worth it for the flicky leg kicks alone.
