Not Quite Yet
So yesterday I blogged about the arrival of Spring! Well, this morning we again have sub zero temperatures and snow. Not a lot of snow, mind you, but still snow. Dagnammit! So I decided to cash in some tanning salon minutes and at least feel like spring is on the way. Yes, you read that right. Your favorite shaman goes to a tanning salon. And while I am at it, might I say that the Changes Salon in Saskatoon has very helpful and professional staff! So into the tanning machine I go. I call it my "time machine" because it has a certain number of minutes that it runs for. You step into this contraption after lotioning down and putting on goggles, push the "start" button, and voila! You have ultraviolet light in surround sound! For hours afterwards I can feel my skin tanning away!
The coolest thing about this is that with the blue light of the ultraviolet range, it eases depression as it stimulates the serotonin in the brain. No more SADD days! The most, ehem, uncomfortable thing about it is that you are...you guessed it...naked! Ahhh! I make extra sure that certain parts get lots of lotion! I don't want to be toasting any nuts other that the almonds on the stove! This is not only all new to me, but a complete adventure taboot! I have never done anything like this before and the only reason I am is so that hopefully I don't sunburn this spring/summer when I (finally) am out in the garden. Theoretically, it should work. Right?......Right?!......RIGHT!!!!!?
