Say Cheese

Ah, Facebook.

My profile photo on Facebook has been the same for EVER. But I like it. Mostly because it's just a giant head and a teensy weensy little body. It's my Mii from my Wii Fit game.


But one of my friends, who shall remain anonymous but her name begins with  B and ends with EVERLY, has commented several times that she thinks I should put a real pic of myself up there. I grudgingly agreed, thinking that it shouldn't be too hard to just look into my laptop computer's camera and just take the stinkin' picture.

Of course it was hard. I dragged this stupid laptop all over the house trying to find a spot that had the right lighting and didn't have weirdo stuff in the background.

This was the best I could do and of course it was the first one that I took without even combing my hair and my wrinkles sharply illuminated by the laptop screen. But I thought if Bev wanted the real me - here it is - where I usually spend most of my time, plunked down at my little white desk and futzing around on the computer.

I may or may not choose to make this my Facebook pic, but thought I'd post it here today with a bit of a warning:

When you read Reasonably Well, here I am - looking back at you. So behave yourselves. Don't make me come over there.

That's a lovely picture of you, Julia. And I'm not just saying that because you're staring right at me....

That's a good picture. My daughter's lap top camera takes rather odd looking pictures. My facebook picture is very flattering. I'm wearing a tilly hat, big sunglasses, a pfd, and I'm sitting in my kayak. If you didn't know it was me you would have no idea. You look very friendly and non threatening. :)

I also like the picture and think it is a good one. As soon as I saw it I smiled - it's YOU. And it looks like you in a good mood and on a pretty good day to me.

1) I have deep furrows in the same place (by either eyebrow)! I wonder if it's a Sjoggie thing...

2) Sorry, you can't look stern, you're making me giggle. Ha!
