Um... Chalk this one up to naïveté and/or the pitfalls of giving in to stereotypes... In case you couldn't tell, I was getting a little nervous about the countdown to the American Idol Auditions. It occurred to me, as I was looking in the mirror critiquing my audition-worthiness, that I am one pale little lady. I've also been thinking that I need a "look," and that my blonde hair and blue eyes pre-qualify me for the "California girl" look. So, with all this in mind, I went down to my local tanning salon and sold my soul for a little UV. 20 minutes later I had a sunburn. 2 hours later I had a rash. Now I just feel stupid!
