From the very first, I never felt totally comfortable around Great Aunt Mildred.

Yeah... so I've been snowed/iced in for days.

I did this the last day of the challenge. I had something else planned with a crib... but couldn't go there to shoot... ice.

The really bad thing about this self-portrait is that I didn't change clothes or fix my hair for it.

Yup. This is what I look like after days of not leaving the house.

I did do a little to the glasses to make them weirder, but they were pretty weird already. *grin*

Snowed-In Son just wandered by and grabbed up the toy... "Hey! I remember this! I stared at it for hours!"


Then, I showed him my image and... he didn't "get it" that I was supposed to be leaning over a small child... and shoving that toy in his face.

Oh well... *sigh* I suppose no one else will understand it either. I should have bent more at the waist, I suppose... I thought the ceiling as a background would make it clear.

Too lazy to be weird anymore today... so I'm keeping it entered.

OMG. Fell out of my chair. Thanks for the chuckle :)

I keep looking at this and, dare I say it, in this shot you look remarkably like Brent Spiner....
