Friday, December 19

the face of friday

I'll admit I had to switch locations to do this meme, which kinda violates the rules (I think) but in all seriousness, I tried taking the photo where I was but it was too dark and none of the lights I tried to use helped the situation.  We sorely lack in the lighting department in this apartment, so every shot looked like a still from one of those really bad, so bad that it's kinda good B movies from the seventies and it's a night scene and you can't see dick squat because the quality of the film stinks and you're asking yourself in your head "are they making out or stabbing each other?" and then you figure out there is only one person in the scene. How's that for a run-on description and yes, the lighting was that bad.

So I switched to my room, which is better because frankly that means I can hide from the family have a moment alone to look for my sanity.  And then I took the photo.  And even though I'm wearing no make-up, while having a polar-fleece Mrs. Roper moment - mostly because those two details usually happen simultaneously - I figured why the heck not publish a picture of myself on a Friday night, doing what all hot chicks do on a Friday night.  Hell, I've already admitted to channelling the divine Helen and anyhow, Kat tagged me for a meme.

And well, that's the meme or so Kat tells me over at Sassy Irish Lassy.  To recap, these are the meme rules:

1) Take a picture of yourself right NOW!.
2) DON'T change your clothes, DON'T fix your hair... Just take a picture.
3) Post that picture with NO editing.
4) Post these instruction with your picture.
5)Tag 10 people to do this..

Oh and rule number five? Crap on a stick, I'm not exactly sure who to tag and is comfortable with showing their face - any volunteers?  Seriously, that is the best cop out excuse I could think of at this time.  I'm kind of distracted by the seventy million tons of snow piling up on my window sill and the fact that I'm relieved we still have the cats because if I don't get to the grocery store soon...

Anyhow, tell me if you do the meme so I can link you up.

BTW - tonight is the last night to get yer name in (if you are in Canada) for the draw for a twenty-five dollar gift certificate to iTunes Canada, eh.

I really love the photo of you. I do.

I took a photo just now, and I'll post it tomorrow. Scary.

While you're there rockin' some Roper, I'm sitting here in my dark living room, completely all in on some Chrissy Snow side ponytail action, and feeling kind of stabby, which makes the fact I'm presently backlit by one tiny light in the kitchen totally out of 'Halloween'. on sentences! Them's some tasty words.

(p.s. THANK YOU!!! I haven't used, read or heard the phrase 'dick squat' in forever, but guess who's going to start using it all the dick squattin' time now!!??)

(p.p.s. I'm thinking I kind of adore you.)

I am also super dressed up on most Friday nights (including last night). Glad to know I'm not alone.

Only I also rock coke bottle glasses (the kind that make your eyes look freakish big).

Thank god for contacts.

I'm glad I don't have my camera close by or I might be tempted to take a picture of myself, and I just walked in the door after being attacked by a wind storm!
