I guess I joined this group after my friend was teasing me and told me "For the love of god , get under a tanning lamp and tan!!"

I had not realized till then , how , here where I live so many people are running after the elusive perfect tan ..

some get it right though in a deadly way .. ei ... ( my friend puts baby oil on and sits under the sun)...

or they run to tanning salons and come out looking like they have hepatitis ....

or they buy a fake tan in a bottle and look like a freaky pshychodelic zebra ....

Anyway you slice it .. though each think they got it right .. they really dont...

I may not be in fashion with the cinnamon skin that looks lovely on all the photoshopped , botoxed within an inch of their life ,hollywood stars ...

But I think there is something to be said for healthy skin, that is soft and unburned , that has not been doused with chemicals so that I can fit in to some stereotypical beauty that will change in a few years anyway .

Yeps I am a pale among the Tans .. and damn happy about it ....Just call me Paleface the white kitti !! LOL

Kitti out !!

Good for you, stand your Ground. Nothing wrong with being fair skinned.

Well said and you're a good example to others. Who wants to have leather sink at 40? Some folks just don't think before the act.

The sun ain't nothing to play with, glad you know better than to put your skin through that. Besides, I would take self-esteem over tans anyday.

Ok, Paleface the white kitty! :D

I'm with you there! I know many women in their 30's who look older and have terrible looking skin from overexposure to UV. I prefer the "Gothic/vampire" skin anyday!

Your dark hair and deep eyes tell a story against your Alabaster skin, so sexy so soft, so inviting, a song only poets can hear and lovers can sing.

My goodness , this comment was so poetic and romantic .. I think I will swoon .. *swoons* there I told you I would =-D

I love to carice ur white skin

Vagabond thank you very much sir =-D<br />
<br />
emce *hugs* I hope every thing stays cool with you and your checkups and Yes I think your right!=-)<br />
<br />
Thank you sweet Ex.. I dont uderstand why they dont listen to my wisdom * pogos out of post wearing a pink tutu and juggling neon green bowling pins *=-D

ahh play .. the beauty of the orange tinted fashionista =-D one of my friends went to this new fake tan place .. where they spray you like they spray paint on a car .. came out this sickly orange looking color .. with her auburn hair lets just say ...Yowzers !

I don't see why everybody feels the need to be tan. I think it's great but for all the things that can go wrong while trying to achieve that perfect tan, your better off owning up to your natural ability. Pale skin can be very exotic in these days of leathery skin and orange tints.

lol... lookinin that is a big win .. my mom is very pale also has stayed out of the sun always protected her skin from the sun and is always mistaken as my sister !<br />
<br />
perfect I hear you my friend , I am half italian half spanish so to alot of people think I should be olive complexion but suprise .. I am whiter than a vampire !!!=-D

I like being pale. In the summer I try to stay out of the sun as much as possible. When I was younger I just didn't like to lay out and tan like everyone else. Now that I'm older I'm glad that I had that mind-set. People say I don't look my age, 35, which is a big ego boost sometimes:)

yes tawam being yourself in all things is the most important thing thank u so much for your comment =-D

well people are paying more to become white or pale and some are willing to go on tanning machine but why would you do it and not be happy for what natural look that God gift to you well i know some are not happy but i guess being what you are counts alot.....

lol why thank you Oscar , inner color I like that ! Yes I am tanned to perfect in my soul =-D thanks for your comments

So...I take it your avatar isn't you....hmm...pale is good too. Julian Moore, Renee Zellweger, Nicole Kidman...should I go on? No one would ever say they aren't attractive. Besides...nothing like soft "white" pillows to sink into...right?

*smooches & tackles again for good measure* :) Yay, my baby mitten is back!!!! xo...

yayayay smooches and tackles girl billy is exactly what I love !!=-P

You are a white Kitti because you are my baby Kitti and I am a big white lion. Actually, I am pretty tan right now because I was so depressed, I felt like I needed to be outside and spend some time in the sun. It works. I always feel better after I go outside. I forget how nice it is when I stay in all the time. *gives the sweetest whitest little Kitti ever a huge hug, a smooch & a tickle*

we will vampire haunt the town together then gonnboy .. the tannies will never get us =-P

*high fives ssss * viva the pale revolution =-D

High Fives Gurl! exactly what I was thinking

woo hoo redheads are some beautiful peeps for sure . yes we should form an anti tan movement !!=-D

Singermom high five .. yeps I have learned a while ago that not even the people we see on screen are really them .. they have good lighting , photoshop , botox , collagen and camera angles ..Thanks far you comments ...

Better pale and smooth than brown and wrinkled. Or red and speckled...which is what happens to me if I try to tan. Ignore Hollywood and the magazines and you'll be a lot happier with yourself.

Iaf ...XD .. that eddie in your avatar looks like one hot stud muffin .. if it aint broke dont let me fix it ... *giggles* thank you darling for your comment .<br />
<br />
Ahh Dwar ... I come here and empty the muse tank hoping the hamster in the wheel that serves as my brain gets a rest but noooo... he starts all over again !!! thanks for commenting =-D

You have a great talent for ex<x>pression. I liked this musing a lot.

Eddie, the big poofter, puts tanning cream on his face and head. Thats why hes got orange hair! 'snort snort'

agreed , agreed signgirl .. I am the youngest one in my circle of friends but they call me mom when we go to the beach or an outing like bbq in the park im running around them squirting sunblock on them like a deranged rabbit .. it is funny but serious .. I actually laughed out loud at the neopolitan =-P.. thanks for commenting !

lol, people still dont believe that i am native american, my norwegian blood runs too thick.. I only tan on my arms when i get out in the sun long enough, one summer i affectionately called my coloring "neopolitan" as I was tan on my arms, red on my face and shoulders and white on my legs. now i try to remember sunblock. my sister likes to tan, seems like an invitation to cancer if you ask me.

Yes fuzzy wuzzy polar bear coming up *gets into polar bear costume and growls ferociously * grrr =-P

really......... wow so i've invented a whole new way to kill people without leaving a trace. Well i'm not sure if i'm a polar bear but kitty can dress up like on maybe ...kittis are like polar bears i think

Honestly, if you two were to do that, you would probably actually kill that woman especially if she were sober. Captain, I love Polar Bears, it's the Bi-Polar Bears you have to watch out for.

*runs and piles soft sating pillows behind cappy so when he passes out he wont bruise *

haha count me in then i'll bring my bottle of fake blood and some vampire teeth too :) just let me finish hallucinating first and pass out O.o

ohh matrix woo hoo .. omg I would love to go back to that lady and scare her a bit that way ... maybe scare her off the bottle no?=-D

haha well just don't call me angel from that stupid show of his. okay maybe we have a few things in common with the jacket, the weapons, the wearing all black, and the sleeping all day..... but thats just a coincidence. well if your a wiccan witch what does that make me a wizard cause i suck at magic ;)

yayayayay *runs with Lucid and moons ep with pale cheeks covers cappy's eyes first *<br />
<br />
ayyo cappy your right it is overrated now get your black leather coat on and boots and we can scare the neighborhood kids into thinking we are vampires .. you know true story ... *giggles* I think I posted something about it .. where I used to live this drunk old lady would call me a wiccan witch ... it was the jet black hair and pale skin .. omg xd I still laugh poor budweiser lady LOLOLOL

aww don't worry kitti i'm pale too.... seriously i swear the sun avoids me i can spend hours in it and still look like a polar bear..... just without the fur bring all tanned up is over rated anyways

Me & my Kitti, pale together forever! lol Dual Caspers & actually between the two of us, we have 4 very pale cheeks that we could turn so they better watch out...they could actually end up with dual pale cheek of each. ;) *sings there's a moon out tooooooooooonight*

Hey Lucid ...*giggles* so when they call us casper we should just turn the other pale cheek no?...You know I am like you .. I do tan if I am out in the sun but to be truthful I am never really out in the sun .. my gym is inside ..I work all day inside .. and you know I put on my 15 spf so ... yeps no sun.. palefaces around the world unite!!!=-D<br />
<br />
Yes emotionally I like what you said .. its 100% true the truly beautiful are the ones that walk in a room confident in who they are they have nothing to prove and are able to be themselves and just being like that draws others to them like a moth to a flame ..thank you darling for your comment =-)

I'm with you my white kitten! I am also WHITE and not even as white as I would be if I stayed out of the sun for a few years. People used to say, "you're so white, you're translucent". I can tan easily & get very dark, which is odd because I am so pale but I have a theory about that...but anyway, I sat in the sun like a lunatic all my life but now that I am getting older, I should have come to my senses sooner, I would rather be white & have as few wrinkles as possible. I've thought about the other options that you've mentioned but I think there is something different & beautiful about people with really fair skin, like Nicole Kidman, could anyone be more gorgeous? I don't think so. So, pale & white it is for me...for the most part anyway. I'm sure you look beautiful just the way you are and were meant to artificial beauty required! Mwah.

KIKU.......Nee enna panra, neenga enna can you kill me ...ah la la ..okay <br />
<br />
*kitti lays dead with a perfect tan *=-D

People scream as they find a dead body near the sunning lamp....Poor kitti....

KIKU...*runs and sits under sunning lamp to get a dark tan * .... I want to look as dark as can be =-D

Ah la la...If you had any plans of tanning remember you are dead.<br />
<br />
MM out!!
