Me Want Food


Gack. So I made the front cover of our local newspaper doing what I do best-- eating. I'm sharing this fairly unattractive picture with you for sport. This was from a Taste Fest that my friend, Shelly, organized. My friend, Noreen, and I went after work last Tuesday.

So I was half expecting to see the FIRST picture the photographer took. It was of me with half of a shrimp tempura roll hanging out of my mouth and my eyes half open. The photographer came over to get my name, and I said "I don't think so". I was pretty bitchy to him only because I'm already feeling fat, bloated, and unattractive. I didn't need to view the proof in black and white. So he was kind enough to take this second photo. I got his name and contact info and told him I'd be hunting him down if he ran the first one-- I was half kidding, half COMPLETELY serious.

Good thing I made it crystal clear because this was on the front cover of our local paper this morning. And like really REALLY large. While it's not the most flattering pic, I'm just thankful it wasn't of the first picture. I may have cried. I'm thanking my lucky stars.
**Update: Apparently, the picture is more hideous than I originally thought. I have gotten several "sympathy" calls today from friends asking, "Are you ok???". Cringe, cringe. I am going to crawl in a hole now. See you next year.**

Wha!!?! I think you look way cute in this pic! Shiny hair, glossy skin. Cute smile, and boobylicious! Pay no mind to sympathy calls. Ten to one people do that because they know it would make THEM insecure. It's a nice gesture, but it doesn't mean YOU look bad!! Quite the opposite. You know you're hot when you can look cute while stuffing your face with noodles!

This just reminded me of one of my most embarrassing moments - one that lives on every weekend in a local sports bar:

Hello,
I often stop by your blog but never commented before. I think that on this occasiona you are being unfair to yourself. Look at the smile in your eyes! Many, many people would be envious to see you so beautiful and happy looking in front of a camera!
Your cyberhome is a reflection of who you are. And at least I like it alot!
