Yeah, I'd be making that face if I had to see The Hobbit, too.
It was fun. And the first time me wife and I have had a few hours off together since.... I can't remember when!
And you wasted it on Hobbit!
Yes, I realize I'm terribly near-sighted.
I keep meaning to ask whether your name is literal -- i.e. do you play the sax?
Yeah, I started playing in high-school and took it all the way through University (I got my Bachelor's degree in music education). I don't really play that much at all anymore as performance was really not my strong suit - I much preferred musical theory and composition. Of course, after school I promptly got a job that had absolutely nothing to do with music and have continued on that tradition ever since!
Sounds familiar. I also played through college, did a bit of gigging, but pretty much gave it up when I went to law school. After a couple of fits and starts I finally got serious about playing again (in an amateur sense at least) several years ago.
Quat is awesome with a camera. I still say I look boring, but at least he makes my boring look good.
What kind of necklace is that? Or is that string?
lookit the curl to your haaaiiirs~<3
[mod removal of over-the-line assholery]
Twisted stainless steel. And
Pogo, we don't have a basement. :D
Apparently some people thought my comment was made with malice, when it was a joke about the necklace, and me and quat have been trading jabs online for almost a decade now so I tried to work him in. I'm glad Switch understood it as it was, and not as a personal attack.
Also, I'm not drunk. Yet. Though this egg nog is working its magic. And it's a cool necklace.
Oh, well then. /not that I saw the original remark but I'm glad you clarified.
And uh, in any case I was just interested because I've seen some fair few jewelry like pieces similarly and it looks very pretty also.
Might have been angling for a story time as well but the curiousity of yes or no was distracting me mightily.
What? There's something behind me?
Case - posted upside down on purpose? Cool effect, but just checking.
I think it's because he's in New Zealand.
Case is Spiderman now. Obviously.
Yay more Wellingtonians!
Yeah, I had kind of a geeky Christmas...
I'd say it would be geekier to have an Umbrella Corporation umbrella, but that would just look like a regular umbrella. That word has lost all meaning to me now.
Me being bloodthirsty.
Hahah, I have that same hat!
Good lord, we already have a pandimensional cat shared by several people, now a hat too?
I must confess that I paid the extra two dollars over the store brand for the Carhartt label. I like my Carhartt coat and jacket so much that I wanted to match.
On the other hand, it was the cheapest one in stock at Amazon when I got mine. :D
Taken right now, this very minute!
Oh! I should post my picture from the Xmas loot thread, in case people didn't click there. Here's me on Xmas, showing off my new hiking stick. I even made a genuine effort to smile!
You look fantastic,
You look amazing, Athryn, so happy and healthy!
Me, me high-me with glasses.
Super congrats on your re-shaping Sister Athryn! You look happy and fit :)
Wish whoever took the picture made the same effort to focus the camera...
But you're looking good (I should really take up hiking).
Jesus Christ. Where the hell did the rest of you go?
I believe that scientifically, fat turns into heat and dissipates off, or something like that!
Thanks for all the kind words, everyone. It's been a hell of a year! (23 pounds to go!)
I was rereading this thread, and I noticed something about your pic that didn't quite register the first time: you look happy. Genuinely happy. I don't know if that's a normal state for you or not, but given all the problems & issues you've mentioned in various threads, I have to say I'm super impressed. I'm a straight white male with no gender dysmorphism, I don't have OCD, and my depression is fairly mild. (In other words, I don't have have much to bitch about.) And yet I think I rarely glow like you are in that pic.
I can see why Quat is so fond of you.
Awww. Thanks. Quat gets such good pictures of me because as he's taking the photo he tells me how much he loves me, and we're absolutely crazy about each other, so... glow. He just makes me that damn happy. :D
