A friend of mine (not the same one with the lil girls, Three and Eight; i lied, i have TWO friends) asked me the other day why she has no pix of me. She takes pix of everything and everybody. I think most everyone in today's world of digital cameras, disposables, videos, web-cams, etc takes a gazillion pix every friggen day. Folks catalog their kids' growth, their dogs' growth, and their moles' growth. I don't even own a camera and the most recent pic I have of me was one I took in October 2004 (with my guy's web-cam, which is now missing the install-disc, totally coincidental, i swear).
I told my friend that the reason she has no pix of me three-fold: 1. she hasn't taken any of me. 2. i haven't given her any of me. and 3. i look like a turtle. To which she replied that a. (she always has to be different, she just does) she lives how many states from me and doesn't get to see me much less take pix of me, b. well give her one then, and c. wtf?!?
so i submit the following as evidence.
me in October 04, in my pseudo-intellectual brown corduroy hat, for when i wanna look like i may be smart (and since i don't have a jacket with the elbow patches, i take what i can get):
the 'can you draw me?' turtle, usually found on the back of matchbooks, ad for mail-correspondence art course, back in the day:
see the resemblance? nuff said.
