Me with my parents



Your mother looks a lot like the German teacher I had for one semester in ninth grade.
I know a secret about a former Supreme Court Justice.  Can you guess what it is?

The greatest tragedy in the world is when a cigarette ends.

American Spirits - the eco-friendly cigarette.

What's with the former Belarusian flag? Were you at a football match or something?

I did a practice run of my makeup today for the wedding I'm in this weekend, so I figured I should take advantage of it and snap a picture wherein I don't look crazy or high (BLS, anyone?). I was due for a new FB picture anyway. In my natural habitat (the sofa):



I look thrilled, obviously.

I love this shirt. Fortunately for me, the dress I have to wear is decidedly not ugly. No poofy sleeves or strangely placed bows or anything! The heels are stupid high and I'm stupid tall and it's outdoors, so I'm pretty much just hoping I can make my way down the aisle (picture a new baby colt taking its first awkward steps) without falling on my face. Or passing out while standing still in one place, as I have been known to do.  ;D Scary!

Cool Pic Michal! I graduated highschool in the late 80's. Your attire, the quite confidence of your body language, and even your physical appearance is reminiscent of someone I once new. It was a nice flashback to have this morning. Thanks for posting.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Considering the wisdom, knowledge, and understanding I often read on this web site the young age of so many of you is amazing to me. Y'all are blessed. Glory be to God.

It serves me well as a very humbling experience  ;)

Thanks. Which one? I'm sure our lurcher thinks she's the cutest and she definitely thinks she's a girl (not a dog)!

Thanks Gebre, you are a good friend, and you helped me calm down. Soccer is going well for me, I will actually be in your neck of the woods for a game in a few weeks.

I apologize to Zeal and Gabriel, I shouldn't have got so fiery, I had a bad day yesterday, but that isn't an excuse I'm sorry. I don't mean to look selfobsessed, I just use this site like Facebook, and I shouldn't. Please forgive me.

The following is not a picture of me. However, the thread is not titled "what do the users on this site look like," but rather "what does everyone look like?" In an attempt to answer this question I present here two more people (my grandparents), to help get closer to the goal of knowing what "everyone" looks like  :P ;D
