Lime Juice & Sunshine Do NOT Mix

I've never heard about this medical condition before, but after extensive research - okay, I Googled it - it seems like there might be something to it.

It's called phytophotodermatitis. Here's the clinical explanation:

Phytophotodermatitis (PPD) is a cutaneous phototoxic inflammatory eruption resulting from contact with light-sensitizing botanical substances and long-wave ultraviolet (UV-A 320-380 nm) radiation. The eruption usually begins approximately 24 hours after exposure and peaks at 48-72 hours. The phototoxic result may be intensified by wet skin, sweating, and heat.

Got that?

According to other sources, it's caused by lime juice being dripped on your skin followed by your body's later exposure to sunshine.

So, if you happen to be drinking a margarita at the beach, and you spill it on yourself, the next day, you could wind up with phytophotodermatitis.

From all accounts, it looks and acts nasty - sort of like poison ivy, but caused by the unlikeliest of produce.

There's a lesson to be learned here, people. From now on, margaritas in sippy cups!
 
 

This morning v. this afternoon. Progress!

Eyes Everywhere!

So a woman is sitting next to her hubby at a baseball game, (allegedly) sexting another man when a pair of young ladies over her shoulder figure out what's going on.

It's the Braves versus the Dodgers on the field, but in the stands, it's Upright Citizens versus Lying Hoe.

That's the characterization of the Upright Citizens, by the way, not mine.

Their names are Brynn and Delana Hinson, and when they saw what was going on, they snapped some pix of the explicitexts.

Not only that, they wrote a note to the hubby on the night's player roster that read:
"Your wife is cheating on you. Look at the messages under Nancy! [It's] really a man named Mark Allen. There [are] pictures on my phone. [I]f she has deleted the messages... Sorry, just thought you should know!"

That was Delana, and she even gave the guy her phone number. They say he called for the pix later on.

Uh oh...

Hut One, Hut Two, Boo Boo BOO!

This is a pretty funny video.

One of the coaches of the Ohio State University football team dressed up like one of the mannequins in the hallway at the training facility, and waited for unsuspecting players to pass.

Then, he pounced!

Most of the players jumped. One guy was pretty nonchalant about it.

But the last guy not only jumped, he tumbled over.

Very funny prank. Nicely played, Coach!

Goodbye, Dr. Huxtable... Hello, Mr. Hyde

It's one of the saddest falls from grace ever.

Bill Cosby, one of the most respected entertainers of the 70s, 80s, 90s and beyond, is now one of the most reviled men on the planet.

To date, 46 women have come forward, accusing the comedian of heinous acts.

This week, New York magazine pictures 35 of them on the cover - along with an empty chair, for the next victim.

A sad story all around.
 
 

So far, 46 women have come forward to accuse Bill Cosby of sexual assault, in some cases, according to a recently unsealed deposition, with the aid of quaaludes—a powerful sedative that can render a person functionally immobile. But these allegations are by no means new, with some stretching back decades—to a time when the culture of rape in America left victims little recourse but to suffer silently, and in shame. Today, the way we think and talk about rape has evolved, creating a safer space for survivors to feel empowered by speaking up and reclaiming their victimhood. And that’s led us here. Of the 46 women who have come forward to accuse Cosby, we spoke to 35 of them — “a sorrowful sisterhood” of women united by their dark experiences, steadfast in their resolve to remain silent no more.

Don't Cry - I Dare You

Sometimes, you just have to give in and let yourself cry.

The school chorus at PS22 on Staten Island sang a song in honor of a teacher battling breast cancer recently, and the video's gone viral.

It's Martina McBride's "I'm Gonna Love You Through It."

Try not to cry. You'll fail. I guarantee it.

Such a touching and warm tribute.

If You Plan to Fly - Ever! - Do Not Watch This Video

I'm already a terrible flyer.

When I do fly, I have to buy another ticket for my flying companion, Xanax.

But even he couldn't have helped with this landing.

A KLM pilot brought an airliner in for a wobbly landing at Amsterdam's Schiphol Airport on Saturday, and the video has gone viral.

Getting pushed from side to side by strong winds, it looks at one point that the plane might actually tip over.

The touchdown was uneventful, but you couldn't pay me enough to be on the KLM clean-up crew for that particular flight...

Shoop for Me, Bobbi Kristina

There's a video makiing the rounds in the wake of Bobbi Kristina Brown's passing on Sunday.

It shows Bobbi Kristina on stage with her mom, Whitney Houston, when she was perhaps three or four years old.

Whitney was in concert in Washington, DC. The year was 1997.

The quality of the video's not great, but the video itself is amazing.

It's good to see the two of them in much happier times.
