Doper Picture Thread

I just discovered that I can send pics taken with my camera phone to my email address. Soooooo, now that I can actually take pictures and share them, I thought I'd snap a pic of me and post it. So, here I am!

Does the F in InigoFMontoya stand for Frasier?

You look more like his brother than Niles does.

Mod Note:

Since the thread has turned into a picture thread, I've edited the title to reflect that. Now, keep on posting photos! I always enjoy seeing what y'all look like.

Nothing too recent, but the most flattering (yikes, if you could call it that) is this one, from last November:

I have more up-to-date ones in the camera but I have to get them developed. That could be awhile...

Kairos, you look like you were actually having fun, not one of those stressed out brides.

Glory - You got kind of a little Andie McDowell thing going on there, anyone ever tell you that?

Obligatory bad picture of me

Ha, yeah. I had a funny conversation with a friend on this subject. I said that I've heard I look like Andie MacDowell and she said "Who's that?" I said the actress from Sex Lies and Videotape and Green Card. My friend said I look like the chick in the Pantene commercials. I said who's that? My friend said, you know, the actress from Groundhog's Day. I poked her and said, "That's Andie MacDowell!"

Ol' Gaffer Hooray for bearded men! That's quite a salamander for what appears to be a cold climate.

Mr Bus Guy, you look as though you enjoy life.

Here I am on top of the main pyramid of Coba last December. That day was the one of the best of my life so far.

Lunch at Coba. And before some fellow beer snob comes to castigate me: it was cold, it was cheap, I was starved for beer, and those reasons alone made it one of the best beers I ever had, even if it was Corona. Sue me!

The husband and I in the poppy fields a few weeks ago.

Acid Lamp, dig the outfit.

Okay, I'll play. Me a couple of months ago, trying to take pix of my own backpiece tattoos.



Sorry, Mirror! What the heck are those, marbles?

ETA: What deli do you go to, to get a little pie fairy with your sandwich and pickle?!

Hi Creaky. I see you're still lookin' great. Remember, you promised to save a dance for me if I ever get to Maryland. Unlike this picture, I'll put a clean shirt on for the occasion.

Agreed. elbows, your photo is beautiful. You and Odie (right?) both; I love the light, the quality of the purples and blues in your shirt and the house, even your hair and his ears together. It's really a lovely picture.

That's the most recent photo although I actually wear glasses.
