This is why I shouldn’t go outside…

04 Aug

I almost never post pictures of myself here. I’m usually behind the camera and there aren’t many photo taking opportunities, but Saturday found Awana and I at an outdoor Fiber Event. I thought the natural light would be great for taking pictures and Awana was willing to take some shots.

I wore my favorite yellow linen tunic – the one that makes me look thinner than I really am. I was very careful with breakfast so as not to slobber all over myself.

We arrived at the venue unsoiled. And then IT happened. We were putting up the pop-up for the first time and I managed to whack myself square in the mouth with the top of the upright while trying to make it “snap easily into place.”

Awana says I cried a little, but I have no memory of that part. I do remember feeling carefully with my tongue and being grateful I hadn’t broken a tooth. Fuck! My lips started swelling on the spot and I hoped that I wouldn’t end up looking like a loser in a boxing match.

Sigh. The shades are cool, though, right?

20140802_102136Where did all those gray hairs come from? What about the “anti-glare coating” these glasses are supposed to have?


I did get hit on by a lesbian, so it must not have looked that bad…

    Anti-glare is a huge joke, but I love the shades!

    Sorry for the injury! You have great hair and eyes though!

      Thank you 🙂 I really thought the anti-glare would photograph better. Soooo disappointed!

      Why thank you 🙂 I had to laugh because something like this always happens. I take a horrible picture, despite my best intentions. Sigh. Guess I should try more selfies…

      Thanks Willy! The lip is mostly back to normal today – maybe I should take some more selfies 🙂

    I think the anti-glare is supposed to work from the other direction…to protect your eyes. I think…

      Shouldn’t it work both ways? What a disappointment…
