I.  (Attention Getter) In a study last year by Dermatology Nursing, Dr. Robin Hornung surveyed several hundred UW students about their tanning habits. A vast majority admitted to purposely tanning their skin, of these 42% of females and 17% of males reported using tanning salons in their quest.
II.  (Audience Adaptation) In the world we live in, appearance is everything. Personal hygiene goes far beyond taking showers and wearing deodorant. We bleach our teeth, go on crasy diets to maintain our weight, dye our hair, use loads of skin products…
III.  (Purpose) However, not everything we do to look good is safe for our bodies. And today, I’m going to delve into the controversial and mysterious world of sunless tanning.
IV.  (Preview) Tanning salons versus topical treatments.
A.  The first theory suggests a bomb brought down the Boeing 747.
B.  Others believe a missile destroyed the airplane.

Obama takes Washington.

I could not caucus, for I had work. I sent my mom instead, to represent Hilary. When I asked her how it went, she ashamedly admitted to having changed her mind. Sigh.

Another cooking failure.

Tonight I made little shell pasta with rue sauce. The wheat flour in the rue camouflaged my sprinkles of garlic powder, so I ended up putting in too much. After a few bites (shudder) I threw it all out and brushed my teeth vigorously.

Pasta is empty calories, right? I still love it. I’d like to learn the different names of pastas. So far, I can successfully identify lasagna, spaghetti and linguine. Maybe next time I’m in Italy I’ll take a class or something. HA. Kidding. Victor, wipe that disgusted look off your face. Actually, I didn’t eat much pasta in Italy. Spaghetti is standard to menus but I honestly can’t stomach tomato sauce. I mostly just ate cheese pizza and chocolate gelato. Okay yeah, I know pizza has tomato sauce too, but it doesn’t envelope it in lukewarm chunky sliminess. Sounds pleasant? Uh no.
