God's Mean, Practical Joke On Women Who Don't Tan

Spider veins. It's just not fair.

(What? You can't see the spider veins? Yeah, I had a hard time photographing them. Turns out that REALLY white skin doesn't photograph too clearly. But believe me, they're there and they're (gasp) spreading, and they're making it really challenging to wear skirts these days.)

*****Now, considering I just did the most humiliating thing EVER and posted a picture of my butt white leg and cankles on the Internet, could I ask a wee little favor of you? Could you go to HERE and vote for me? I could win some cool stuff.

Also, I apologize in advance to anyone I may have blinded with this photo.

p.s. when did I get old enough to have spider veins? *sigh*

This post was written as an entry to the Parent Bloggers Network blog blast contest, "What Are You Hiding Under Your Sk*rt?" in support of the fabulous new website, Sk*rt, which is already one of my favorite sites.

Oooooh, I'm sorry. On the plus side, hopefully you'll never have skin cancer!

Voted for you.

Thanks guys!

LM: I wish I never had to worry about skin cancer, but what happens to me is that I BURN and then peel and then go back to being butt-white. So I still have to worry about cancer, but I don't get any of the side-benefits of a nice tan. It SO sucks.

I have the same blinding white skin. When I was traveling, I would have other tourists -- speaking languages other than my English -- pose next to me to show off their tans.

Very entertaining blog. Good luck with the imminent birth. And I hope it's as natural as can be. Have you met with your doula yet?

Thanks, supermum. Yes, I actually just had my first meeting with the doula last night. She is awesome and I can't wait to work with her. I'm going to post a little about it tomorrow.

Have any of you tried horse chestnut cream? Rub it on those spider and varicose veins for a month and they'll be practically gone (and make sure you walk a lot). It worked for me! Love it!

I voted. Not just because I have my own vein issues (you should see the lochness monstor of a vein that's setting up his condo on my neck).

Wanna vote for me? I can win $18,000! Oh, darn. You aren't Canadian are you. Only Canadians can vote.
