I wanna see pictures!

Why don't more dopers have their pics on the People Pages? When someone causes the contents of my mouth to squirt out my nose, and dribble onto my keyboard, I wanna see what they look like dammit. BTW, mine isn't on there either, but I'm willing to send mine, if others will.

I always figured anyone that wanted a picture of me to put on there would get one.

Everytime I look at it, half the pics are broken or don't show up anyway.

Maybe some of us don't show up on film.....

Or are worried about being tracked down and billed for the replacement of gooey, damaged computer keyboards.

I lot of us were on the "people pages" but got blown out a while ago for some reason. I never bothered to re-submit a pic.

Because I want to surprise everyone if (when) I ever go to a DopeFest. (so they can't "greet" me with pitchforks and torches)

That, and I don't have a digital camera. I do have a scanner, so I guess that's no excuse. Just taking a picture for that purpose seems kinda silly, though...

Don't know if I've ever made fluid squirt out of any of your orifices, hillbilly, but a moderately recent pic is on the bottom of my page.

Opal, I used to have a profile on your site, but I think you removed it way back when we were, erm, "feuding". Do you still have my pic and info? If so, could you put it back up?

Well, hillbilly queen, I don't know what effect I've had on you, but you're certainly responsible for a some of the Coke residue on my monitor! I remember it like it was yesterday...

Rock and roll, poochie poo
Lordy Mama like my shoes.


Cracks me up every time.

For that, I will honor your request.

Unfortunately, the only pic I have saved on my computer here at work is one of me, looking incredibly stoned with my dog:

http://www.geocities.com/auntie_9/st...?1023735649610

(Note: I was not, in fact, stoned. I was hosting a dinner party and had gotten so tipsy that I'd set everything on fire. This pic was taken after... well... what was left of dinner, after the smoke alarms had been beaten to death and the smoke had cleared.)

Actually, I do have one other pic saved, but it's me as a 12-year-old, and is pretty much all nose and eyebrows. The horror.

auntie em, you look exactly as I pictured you. EXACTLY. It's kinda creepy. Not you, you're not creepy, it's that you look like I pictured you. I mean...uh, yup.

Anyhoo, there were some pictures of me looking shiny at ChiDope a couple months ago, but I don't know where they are. Other than that, I don't have a digital camera or a scanner, plus I think most pictures of me are accurately goofy looking, so yinz are outta luck. Rats!

I don't really have any pictures of myself or Dread Pirate Jimbo loaded up, but I promise to post our wedding pictures after Aug. 24. Cross my heart. (My sister's bf is taking pictures with his digital camera, so they should be pretty easy to get onto the net. Hopefully.)

You don't look stoned to me, auntie em. You just look cute as a button (and your little dog, too).

Hmmmm.

Iiiiiiiiiiinteresting. Gundy the psychic. I like it. Tell me, did a little supernatural "vision" of what I look like just pop into your head out of the blue, or was it based on something I've said about myself here on the boards?

Well, if it makes it any less creepy for you, I weigh about 20-25 lbs. less now than I did in that picture (a couple of months after it was taken, I got a horrible, horrible flu--I called it the Phlegm Fast Diet--and the pounds just fell right off, never to return). Also, that sweatshirt is practically pink now, it's so faded. The jeans are faded, too.

So see? I probably look NOTHING like that picture now.

Hey, Gundy, didn't someone else here post a pic of you at a Dopefest? Maybe I'm the one having visions now, but I'm getting a pretty clear (and foxy) image of you in my head!

And featherlou, thanks for the compliment. But uh.... I don't see YOU sharing any photos of yourself (or your dog)....

Yeah, those Dopefest pics were the shiny ones. And if a foxy tomato such as yourself thinks they were foxy, I ain't arguing.

I think it was a mental picture formed after reading many of your posts. I have one for everyone. Most are wildly inaccurate (featherlou, f'rinstance, seems shortish & blond to me), but yours was spot-on.

Tell me more about the Phelgm Fast Diet. I'd be willing to suffer through a couple weeks of flu if it meant I didn't have to force myself to go running in order to drop these pesky 10-15 lbs...

Whoo! I already had a bit of a secret crush on you, Auntie Em, just based on your wise, charming and intelligent posting...and now I see that you're a hottie to boot! Mmmm...

Um, I don't have any electronic pictures of me...consider yourselves lucky!

Thanks for the compliments BTW.

Well, here's one of me at the last family outing.

Just kidding, of course. I actually don't have a picture of myself online, but I do look a bit like this fellow here, just blonde, and with a haircut that's much worse.

OK, If I understand the check system, 1st column check = P.I.P, 2nd column check = Profile. I don't see any X's so I assume all the pics are G-Rated

Sorry, Gundy - featherlou is a dark brown-haired, 5'6" girlie. (Talking about myself in the third person is strangely liberating. featherlou thinks she'll do it more often now.)

Now, how can I possibly hope to compete with your beautiful wife, bernse? I guess this crush was doomed from the start. (Notwithstanding that you're married and I'm engaged. )

First of all, let me say that Geocities is a fascist, selfish prick of a web host for making it fuckall pain-in-the-ass to look at remote-linked pics.

Second of all, here's me, in 10 different shades of jayjayness. Although they're slightly inaccurate, as I'm growing my hair back in a little because it's a major pain for a lazy person such as myself to shave my head every other day.

I'm much less good-looking in person. Ask anyone who was at GingerDope.

Heck, I was crazy for hillbilly queen as soon as I saw her screen name. Seeing the pic doesn't hurt though, one must admit...

Would post a photo, but I completely forgot where my Web site is... It was something about fathom or fathoms or some such... Drat.
