Does the A&M flag have anything to do with the portrait?

From what I remember of the picture I saw of you, that's a pretty good likeness, except the not smiling and all.

I hope you are feeling happier now. The week's almost over!

No...it just happens to be hanging on the wall next to the picture. It's what's left of my senior year Elephant Walk t-shirt. All the Flickr pics show me smiling, but I have the kind of face that, when I'm not smiling, looks as though I'm angry. Even when I'm not.

I think they call that your "sitting face." Wow, I really could make that into a dirty comment. Use your imagination. My sitting face always looks bored. I hope your weekend goes well at least!

I have that kind of a face, too. Always I have people (read: men) saying to me, "Give me a smile," or, "It might never happen." Ugh.

It does look like your photos - the ones you took in your mirror where you're not smiling.

I agree that it looks like your photos. Nicely done!

I hate it when people tell me to smile.

Oh, and Tink, first with the balling, and now with the face-sitting!!! I'm sitting next to you at B-List Blog Chicks '06!

I wept the first time I saw it.

"[G]ot happy" sounds like "made to feel happy." Are you feeling emotionally forced? Is that too personal of a question?

Anyway, I like it... Picasso-esque lines and such.

(Apparently you're ignoring my Lazy-ass Friday theme. That's okay. I'll get over it...)

Come on get happy. Come on over we'll have a beer together. You do look a little pissed off.

I like the College Station backdrop with the title.



I used to live in Bryan.

Mignon- Just going for minimalism in captions. I am happy. The pic is just
named that because it's about before I was happy. No forcing. I'm honoring lazy-ass Friday by taking a picture of the thing in front of me and then refusing to blog 1,300 words about it. Now THAT'S lazy.

Ditsy- Not pissed, but I'll take that beer anyway.

Did you draw it yourself? I didn't realize we had an artist in our midst!

Why, oh why, do I always get word verifications with q,g,i, & j? I can never tell them apart!
