Apropros (and More)

So Ms. Kel over at Girl In the Glasses, thought she would kill two birds with one stone. She tagged me to play the latest craze in blog games, which, by nature of the rules, will showcase my fab new 'do. Except I don't get to primp. Yikes! Oh well, I don't tend to do much primping anyway. Here's the scoop:

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 instructions with your picture.
5) Tag 10 people to do this.


Instead of tagging 10 people, I am tagging one person 10 times. Creative, huh? Well, my old friend, Jay, LOVES getting tagged, and he is a bit of an exhibitionist. Since I am feeling charitable (and I have it on good authority that he has nothing better to do with his 95 weeks of vacation), let's have 10 different photos of that adorable mug, por favor.

Finally, since I really and truly am completely self-absorbed, there may be yet another post on the hair. Or not so much the hair, but my perceived long list of physical flaws. Interesting that now that I am happy with my hair, I think my nose is way too big. Wow, isn't it terrific that I am finding so much time to wallow in self-pity, when not one present is wrapped (or purchased, for that matter), there are still lights to be hung and I haven't begun to think about Christmas dinner (don't worry, Turducken won't be involved)?

Oh, and a final "Finally": My poor boys are going to give birth to real, live, mewing kittens if it doesn't snow here soon. Mr. G is checking weather.com HOURLY. He is despondent over the apparent warm front that is supposed to hit Christmas Day. 50 degrees on Christmas? Ugh...

Rats! One more FINALLY... Shout out to my gal pal, Denise, who had her Blogcentennial yesterday, and could use a little celebratory cheer.

Nice cut.. Glad you could play. Kel tagged me too but I'm at work with no camera so I can't play.
That's a good twist to tag one person 10 times! clever

That's a cute picture, I'm making the rounds from Kel's site trying to find someone in pj's or with bedhead but everyone is gorgeous! :)

Young Momma said...

I love the cut! What the.... is that in the back?!?!? Are you in Arizona or something? lol No, obviously not if it's going to be 50 degrees on Christmas. lol I do love the cut though. :)

Tenakim said...

Cute hair- scary meme! Thanks for not choosing me although I had to go to the kids school today so I'm not wearing pajamas AND I washed my hair!!!

Eudea-Mamia said...

Jay made me snort - "something crawling up your back." hehehehe. And kudos to you for tagging him. Let's see if he mans up...

Wendyburd1 said...

Straight to Your Hart said...

Love the Hair!! Your non-touch up picture..makes me sick!! In a good way that is...you look darling my dear.

jsprik said...

i love your hair!!! you are beautiful, really!!

blueviolet said...

I am so very pissed off that you look like that on an unexpected tag. It's not fair. That haircut looks spectacular on you!

jill jill bo bill said...

OMG OMG OMG I LOVE LOVE LOVE your hair. And I have not smoked crack today. I really love it that much. You look gorgeous. I am so damn jealous.

Elaine A. said...

First, can I just say that it looks like the decoration thingy on the wall behind you might eat you any moment?

Second your hair and "take a picture NOW" picture are both very nice! I could never participate in that because then people would be too scared to come back to my blog. Makeup is truly a magical thing.

Brenda Jean said...

LOVE your hair- oh my gosh, it's so cool! And your nose is not too big-- just take that back right now. BAHAHAHAHA Thank goodness you did not tag me on this one. Because my hair looks like a rat nested in it. I am NOT kidding!

stefanie said...

I love the hair too. And you have no flaws. None.

We had some snow flurries today, but that's all. Still waiting for some snow.
