Image Filters

I had recently changed my MySpace profile picture from my usual drunken shenanigans to an actual legitimate photo of myself (there is evidence in the form of exactly one photograph that I don't morph into a complete retard in front of a camera lens). It's from the company Christmas party where my hair was perfectly curled and I was in a flattering little black cocktail dress. I wrote about that night, albeit from a very different perspective.

Harvey, i would think that with all of this free time you would do something to help society and those close to you.

who is this "Sarah" person, and why have you never tried to set me up with her?

i expect you to put together a solid plan. i await your presentation.

I dunno Harvey, it's a misleading photo of me. I'd hate for him to meet me and then be disappointed. Make sure he sees the other pictures in my profile. If he still wants to meet me after seeing the one with my finger up my nose, then talk to me :)


Once again, I'm setting up filters. If a photo with your finger up your nose while blowing a raspberry isn't one, then I don't know what is.

I did have enough foresight, however, to delete the picture with my finger up someone else's nose. Some pictures can be filters, and others just serve as drunken preoccupations.

I sit here and say that the reason I use filters saves me time in case someone doesn't understand my personality, but I think it's because it saves me rejection. It's been a rough start to a year, and I'd be lying if I wasn't a little skittish about meeting any people right now.


James said...

That's you being cautious too! Fingers crossed.

pinkjellybaby said...

any chance of us lot seeing this picture?!

Bluesoup said...

I second Pinky. If enough of us ask will you give in? :)

jedimerc said...

Yeah, what about us poor non-myspace using slobs? :)

I agree that one must always be cautious. It would be nice for it to not be so, but, *insert cliche here about how bad the world is and all that jazz*

Walter said...

I say don't post any pictures, if you say they suck, then I'll take your word for it.

Sarah said...

James- It is me being cautious. I've never been afraid of rejection before. I think I'm just tired of it.

Pinky- You've been e-mailed :)

Bluesoup- You've been e-mailed :)

Jedimerc- I only use MySpace for people I know in real life, so I don't feel a great need to be cautious about what goes on there. This was just someone seeing me on a mutual friend's page.

Walter- I'm not. I treasure my privacy.

Jen said...

Ah, the old finger up the nose series of drunken photos. I do believe I have some of those kicking around somewhere. :P

Phil said...

Obviously this mystery photo has some nostril allure!

Sarah said...

Jen- Oh thank god! I love you!

Phil- I like my nose! Hey, a girl can have sexy nostrils!

jedimerc said...

I completely understand with the crazy nostril photos... it's a miracle I haven't been blackmailed more times in my life than I already have (especially when I was waiting tables and in theatre... why is it you always drink more around waiters and actors?).

On the dream post you linked to:

Those girls are nasty representations of what it is to be a woman.

If they were normal human beings they wouldn't have given you dirty looks, they would have made an effort to be nice or complimentary. Their opinion will never mean anything.

When I see these girls out I love giving them "the look." The "I know how insecure you really are, I dare you to keep looking at me" look. Works like a charm.

So I'm not so nice either. But if I meet a woman who is pleasant and really just trying to enjoy a social moment, I'm quite sincere.

I tell myself "you're as beautiful as you think you are and it has nothing to do with what anyone else thinks." Also, I don't think someone can be pretty/gorgeous/beautiful until they're known for all their good qualities. It's never all about looks for me.

You're amazing.

Plus, I've never met one MAN that would pick a stick over a womanly body with natural curves.

*no offense to those who are genetically very slender - you have real body curves too - not diet skinny hollows*

Sarah said...

Jedimerc- That's easy. They don't have day jobs ;)

DET- I am in love with your self confidence and your muffin mole!
