Now, For Something Completely Different

There is so much I need to write about. Let's start with terrible photographs. Awhile back I mentioned our family portrait for the parish directory. If you recall from that post, I was anticipating bad things from that photo shoot. Well, the picture came. Here it is:



My wife, A, "Glass-Half-Full Girl", seems to think it's OK. I cannot agree less. It is a terrible picture of me certainly, but really of everyone. Except for A - she always looks wonderful. Where to start. F's hair looks greasy, dirty and awful and his smile looks painted on. I have easily the worst excuse for a smile on my face (looks like someone could you a little Dulcolax) and if anyone wants to buy advertising space on my giant forehead I can cut you a good deal. Granted, I have a little bit of a Neanderthal protruding forehead thing, but the lighting makes me look a little too much like one of the Geico cavemen (minus the uni-brow, thank you very much.) Please, go through my previous posts and tell me my family and I are much better looking than this photo conveys. Ugh, I can't stand to look at it - I need to go away.

First off, not knowing your family, I think the picture is great. Your wife is beautiful and your kids are adorable. We are always our own worst critic!

Nat - you are nice and it is true. I am my own worst critic, but I just hate to have my picture taken, thus a phony picture in my blog profile.
