SDMB Picture Thread

I recently got a haircut and uploaded some before and after pictures to share with online friends and family and have been pasting them hither and thither, so I thought I'd post them to start a picture thread since it's been quite a while since our last one.

Anyway, here is what I looked like before (this shows how how shaggy it really was) and this is what I look like now.

And because a friend really wanted to see it when she found out I had one, here is a picture of me holding my Spock teddy bear that I got in a care package from someone here on the Dope a couple years ago when I broke my leg. I unfortunately don't remember who gave it to me but I want to say it was rocking chair. It might be one of the most awesome(ly dorky) things I own.

Tilt your head to the left. I'm in the yellow t-shirt. My hair has grown back.

Well, here's my most recent pic of myself, with my boyfriend, on a trip back home to Montreal in July.

Please ignore the evil red eyes of doom.

One of these I am going to have to upgrade that pic; it's kind of bleak.

A recent family picture
This was taken about a month ago at a family wedding. There are a couple other pictures in the album. This one has all of us in our SCA garb from an event two weekends ago.

Antigen, I love the red-eye shot. When that happens in our pictures, I always insist it's just our true personality shining through.

Aesiron, I thought your hair looked nice long, but the new you is nice, too. The Cousin It shot cracked me up.

Oh, and twickster, what is that thing reflecting your camera?

Beards abound on the SDMB! I like.

Here's normal looking me.

Here's an unusally good looking version of me.

That's awesome. Nearly 4000 posts in, I still have yet to meet another Doper in person.

That's because Houston, the 4th largest city in America, can't get its ass together for a DopeFest.

Yanno, I'm not entirely sure. It was taken in this funky little museum in Haarlem [/oh-so-casual reference to trip to Holland last April] that was half natural history/19th-century scientific technology and half art. This was in the science half, and was some sort of instrument or other. I just thought it was a cool-looking object, and didn't realize till I was looking at the pictures after I got home that I'd caught myself in the mirror of it.

Getting Dopers together is like herding cats.


Nice pics, all. I've got one I might want to share. I'll post from home.

I haven't made it to a DopeFest yet, although I'd love to make it to What Exit's house for a Jersey one. Of course, if the timing is right for any of the occasional Ohio fests I'll go.

WordMan and I are both guitar players and had exchanged lots of emails on that subject. I timed a visit to my sister-in-law's house in New Jersey to coincide with one of WordMan's band's gigs in New York. It was fun. WordMan is a rocker.

Yes, I recall. He rocks. WordMan came and contributed to my "Let's hear YOUR music!" thread a month or two ago.

But sometimes, we succeed. And it is good.

(Met HazelNutCoffee, Cerowyn, and Kid_A at the pub last night. Will be meeting more Dopers on Wednesday! )

It looks like either a musical instrument or a mid-victorian surgical implement.

Wasn't there a class of musical instruments that had rotating jugs or vessels that made sound when you stroked them with a wet finger? Or am I channeling Peter Schickele again?

Just scanned some new pics but as usual no place to show them. Could someone be kind enough to host a couple?

Thanks,

The glass harmonica. One of Ben Franklin's many inventions.

ETA: This wasn't what this was. I think this was a measuring device of some sort.

Most people are surprised by that. I suppose my handle doesn't really smack of femininity.

It was a surprise to me too, if that's any consolation.

Next I'll go look at twickster's photo and discover that the poster is not female.

I had to get up an an ungodly 6am to go have this picture made. It's blurry, but I don't care.

Here is a non-blurry from the same day.

All you guys and gals are so good-looking!
