Some pictures were taken the other day, on my birthday, maybe there's one that actually looks "normal" enough to show. (Normal meaning less like the wicked witch or evil stepmother type...oh, that's right. I am an evil stepmother... )

Ah, well I meant it as a compliment since Scarlett as always been considered by many as one of the most beautiful of actresses.

But of course, Cailin is much prettier.

And I agree with you, Brinniel, so I shall take it as a compliment.

Though I don't think I really look anything like her.

When I did WW XXIIX, I must confess to looking at all the players' pictures to try to get some ideas for killing them (don't worry...the game is over. I know it's over.), and while viewing Lommy's picture, I discovered that she doesn't have pink hair. It's a sunbeam of some sort.

Just...wow, Lommy. I had always pictured you with pink hair.

Well, that one's about three years old now.

I would update it if I had any decent recent photos of myself.

Just...wow, Lommy. I had always pictured you with pink hair.
The red-orange-pink (whatever you wish to call it) stripe at my hair is some problem there was with developing the film. In real life I have brown hair.

And I really should send in a new pic, that one must be four or five years old...

I like your hair.

He.

First time out of town, H-I Junior goggled on everything around (lots of birds and some squirrels, frozen-through lake and small airplane circling it for good part of an hour to top the bunch of things new and unforeseen and unexpected for the whole 'town-life' before)

Bunlded re: some ten minutes to put all the clothes on, some ten more to take all them off when back home

Think of that (and all other I say) as a compliment, as pretty much everything I say can also be understood as an insult. (I myself usually decide what I mean after I say it. )

Well, I we can't see the length of your hair in that picture.

I'll send this to Tigerlily anon. This picture is notable for two reasons...I'm about to cut my 18th birthday cake, and I'm in the bizarre uniform of my school, Eton...



Point and laugh. What on earth am I doing with my face?

I'm soooo sorry for my absence. I've had a lot going on in life and am still trying to catch up.
I've been earning various fitness related certifications and have been attending workshops for others. Then I got quite ill, and then my grandmother passed away.

I'm still trying to catch up with everything.

I have pictures in my inbox and hopefully I'll get to them soon.

So sorry for the delay.

Ang, I feel like I need to give you an eye-patch, nastier looking teeth, a little less dapper outfit, and a little speech bubble reading "Yarr." Oh, and the glasses just have to go if we're going to do this right.

Yay, new nice pics! (Though, no offense Ang and Roa, HI's baby/toddler is still the most adorable... )

Durelin - that comment combined with that avvie is something so funny! I mean it looks like: (in a slightly sarcastic voice) "Oh my God, this is hopeless, does he think that's scary, he could put a little more effort..."


Roa, you really do look like the Snow Queen... or a porcelain angel... or a vampire... or some heroine from Jane Austen's books... whichever you prefer!

My sister has promised to take a nice family pic of me and Noggie to be put on the photo page... so that might (or might not) end up here some day...

I feel the need to advise you to be careful once Tigerlily has updated the page: A picture of me will linger there from then on.

Photos make me look even worse than reality already does.

Just thought I should warn you.

That is very good...... reminds me of when I showed my graduation photos to an older colleague who was a real pukka mem-sahib type and she said approvingly "oh you wore white gloves!" ..noooo those are my hands..... and I was merely "almost titian" (ie a bit ginger ).

Strawberry Blonde then? That phrase always used to make me laugh, as it was always used by people loathe to admit they were well, a bit ginger...

Me and sun do not mix - my skin goes red, falls off and is then white once again. Whereas my father used to be out all day gardening with no shirt on and weirdly go neither brown nor red.

Anguirel - I shall hold myself back from making some 'witty' Cameron-related jokes or remarks...

I am impressed by how lovely you look in a low angle shot, Roa.
Only the young and highly attractive can carry that off....
(I remember forcing some poor photographer to hover over me on a tall chair in an attempt to look half-decent for a picture...)

Ang the cake-killer....do you have a thing for Lampedusa?

Thanks for all your compliments! :blush: Keep in mind, though, that I looked extra pretty for my wedding. Normally I'm less "done up." I clean up good, though.

Yes that's it. It is something that clearly skipped a generation since my parents could tan a bit , but my grannie had celtic skin and I got the premature grey gene from her too . I gave up trying to tan after a lot of freckles and some horrific sunburn and so have been a devotee of big hats and high factor for years. One advantage is that you spare yourself the ageing effects of the sun - and joy of joys I have found fake tan that isn't orange so can go barelegged in the summer

It does seem that a disproportionate number of us are "pale and interesting" - I wonder if it is because a tan was seen as desirable in RL but pale skin is regarded so positivesly in ME ?
