Further News on the Diagnostic Front

The NY Times:
Beneath Brittany Lietz Cicala’s porcelain skin and flowing blond hair are blemishes from nearly three dozen surgeries to remove cancerous moles, including an eight-inch scar across her back. The 2006 Miss Maryland title-holder, Ms. Cicala, 24, blamed an obsession with tanning beds for triggering the cancer.

[...]

In Monday’s news conference at the Hearst Tower in Midtown, Ms. Cicala said she started tanning at age 17 and within two years became a “tanorexic” who fake baked at least four times a week. She believed tan was beautiful, she said. Now she feels differently.
What a brave woman. I use her strength to offer my confession: I am showerexic, compelled to clean myself every morning.

HUG ME.

It nearly cost me my life.

Almost certainly it has. Only question is when.

Meh. I mostly spend my time indoors, with computers and that kind of crap. Hell, I can go WEEKS without getting dirty. A bar of soap can last me six months.

What?

First you need to work on that compulsive blogging habit.

Also, if anything "Beneath [one's] porcelain skin and flowing blond hair" count as blemishes, then I would like the deplorable state of my intestines and my peculiar bone condition to be taken into account.

If I had to choose I would prefer a chitinous skin to a porcelain one. Better in the armour stakes quite considerably.
BUT we now know why Mikeys web cam picture is kind of foggy looking.
