[...] there's a little drawback to getting my base tan purely from gardening, as that way I mostly only tan my shoulders, the back of my neck, my back, arms, and a portion of my legs. This leaves me with the most problematic area in terms of tanning - my torso - looking like cheese. But, I suppose, tanning half my body on the deck chair is faster and more comfortable than tanning my whole body on a beach towel.
Reasons to wear underwear
A Christian website went out of its way to explain how "the foremost reason of clothing is to cover up those parts of our body which are involved in sex" failing to realize that our entire body is very much involved in sex (in fact some of them should realize that their mouths are quite involved in sex too, and cover them up as well occasionally). If that's the main purpose of clothing then maybe we should all wear burquas and sunglasses at all times.
Barefoot, Part 2
It's been almost four weeks since I started out on my barefoot adventures and I'm still liking it. I walk around the house barefoot all the time now, whether we have guests or not. I have been told to put on some shoes or socks at least a couple of times, ("You'll catch cold!") but I just waved the issue away.
[T]his very idea started brewing in my head when I saw one of the videos on YouTube with Tim Minchin (whose work I started admiring when I stumbled upon his poem Storm, shortly after which I saw Matilda the Musical on Broadway and decided I still admired his work, which led me to the said YouTube video) performing on stage barefoot. I looked up if he ever said why he performed barefoot, and found that he has. The answer is quite simple - he likes it.
Please stop appealing to nature
Everything is natural. Appealing to the "naturalness" of something isn't an argument in either its favor, or against it. In fact, when someone invokes an appeal to nature it makes me dubious because if "it's natural" (like everything else) is all one has to say about a thing, then that thing doesn't sound like it's very interesting.
Braving the hills and barrows of Samobor, naked
I found myself roaming what I could best describe as a deserted, overgrown orchard. Its south edge was actually a cliff, or a very steep slope. So, it was either braving the slope, or turning back.
No pants subway ride
I just found out about the no pants subway ride. I think I'll be marking down January 12 for future reference. Unfortunately, I don't know when I'll be able to participate in the event, considering that Croatia has no subways.
A simplified guide to being a naturist (Take it off!)
[S]ome people are unnaturally and inexplicably freaked out by certain sights that your nudity can provide, so be sure to follow this guide in a location you deem secure. Also, I suggest you read this guide fully before following it step by step.
Erections do happen in nudist settings, but we nudists have found ways to hide them efficiently - from wearing a towel, lying on our belly, jumping into the pool or the sea, taking a cold shower, going to the loo, or simply withdrawing from a social setting under any excuse.
I have a feeling that if there's any snow this winter, it will be wet and the ground won't freeze over as it's supposed to and there will be mud everywhere. I sincerely hope this winter proves me wrong. I wanna make a snow angel naked, without getting all muddy.
