Methinks it's time for another SDMB picture thread

Why? Because I want to know what you all look like! Reading isn't any fun unless you can imagine the faces of those you're reading about. Also, I've got a mental picture of some of you, and I want to see how close I am. I know it's been done many times in the past, but half the pictures in the old threads (and in the Teemings profiles) are no longer with the firm. Besides, judging from the pics that do still work, Dopers are a nice-looking group of people, so more pics certainly can't hurt!

Only pictures you have of yourself all suck? Don't worry, I'll go ahead and kick it off with a crappy Polariod of me at work. Now you don't feel so bad, eh?

Actually have some cool pictures of yourself? Well, I didn't think I did, but here's a couple pics of me in a Spike Spiegel costume that people seem to like for some reason.

I've posted these in various locations here before, so I know I'm safe...nothing new from me. So, anyone else interested? Don't be shy!

Hmm...that recent, huh? I wonder how I missed it. Oh well, it's a week past the three-month "no resurrection" cutoff, so maybe this thread is even more timely than I thought.

Here's one of me at the recent Bay Area Dopefest. Props to SandyHook for taking and posting the picture. I'm the one in the green shirt in the middle. That's Demo on the left, Nametag looking over his shoulder, lezlers in the red shirt, and Cyn and Drachillix in the background.

Damn, y'all! I didn't realize how sexy some of our noobs are...and how sexy the old gang has become. (Hot hot HOT Spoofe, Euty, 'Nilla and Roland! All of you are just precious.

Ok, I coerced my son to take these brand-spankin'-new pictures of me just now. Keep in mind I just got home from work, and didn't realize I had to do a cover for Vogue or anything.

This is me!

What a great picture!! You and hubby look so happy. I hope you don't mind that I saved this one, gal. Such a sweet, wonderful picture.

Here's a photo of me in Orlando last summer. I'm the redhead on the far left. Why is everybody else at the table wearing robes and scarves? Do you REALLY want to know? (Probably NOT.)

If this link comes out weird, I tried previewing it about 8,000,000 times. Sorry. The VB script doesn't seem to work quite the same way as it does on the board I'm used to.

Okay, I am a serious picture whore, so there are about fourteen bazillion pictures of me currently on the internet. I'll give you a select few. (Be aware that I'm a sucker for compliments, and if I don't get any, I might very well post more pictures later, desperately seeking validation. ) But here's a sampling, approximately in reverse chronological order.

flashy mirror pic
This shirt cost eight bucks
I love my lace-trimmed hot-pink lumberjack-plaid skirt
I miss that hair color
I was having fun with eye makeup
Not looking at the camera makes me emo, right?

There are tons more in this album and it's subfolders (not the one called "Kat"). And that's not even touching my yahoo albums... told you I'm a picture whore.

me. The first photo of myself I found on the internet when I looked just now. It's seriously unflattering - my face is not actually such a strange shape - I was experimenting with 1920s style makeup.

Me at prom with my gorgeous date; this is about a year and a half ago. Another picture because I loved that dress so much.

I am incapable of having a normal expression when a camera is pointing at me, so most pictures of me show me sporting a maniacal grin.

I can't help it.

That was taken shortly before you climbed into the car and attempted to jump the Snake River Canyon, wasn't it?

This is pretty much what I look like the rest of the time, minus the crooked bangs, they've grown out, thank god.

LilMiss and I at my nephew's wedding.

I hate weddings. I hate being pushed into having my hair "salon" done. I hate having pictures taken, especially right after someone compared me to the prow of a battleship.

However, I did end up getting nifty new family members.

Damn, you are all so good-looking. I feel privileged to be in such smoking hot company. I love you for your minds and all too, but still...

Roland Orzabal, my roommates think you're quite the babe. They came to see what I was up to, and noted your picture on my screen.

Wow. Really? Tell 'em thanks...and tell 'em I'm single.

In your first pic, you remind me of Colleen Haskell. This is not a bad thing. As I have expended my annual use of "how YOU doin" in another thread, I am forced to switch languages. Ergo: comment ALLEZ-vous?

I'll thank them for you, but I won't tell them you're single, if you don't mind.

Are you looking? Or just busy trying to fight off the women?
