Yeah, I'm a Dork

The really interesting thing is that it's gotten to a point where Athena doesn't really blink anymore when I add an extra finger to her hand, or make her eyes the size of saucers, or give her vampire teeth. She's pretty much immune to the Photoshoppery at this point.

To forestall the inevitable "aren't you on deadline?" cracks, this was actually for something I was doing for By The Way. Yeah, I got paid for this. So there.

Did the photo shoppery happen to be on the extreme right side of the photo? Otherwise it looks like the normal number/size of things.

Have you heard of the new Nikon coming out next month? Has it piqued your interest in new, more expensive small electronic thingies?

Nevermind, it showed up when I posted the above, on the main page it is occluded by the calandar pane.

I wonder how a six-fingered person gives someone 'the finger'?

Have you photoshopped Athena to have your haircut?  Or shouldn't I ask?

If, in a few years, Athena brings home a boyfriend named Inigo, you've got real trouble.

Aren't you on a deadl... oh, wait - you already mentioned that.

Nevermind...

Suuuure it's for a paying gig. That's like when my wife asks me if I'm doing work on the business computer and I say yes, when in fact I am posting here.

What or who pray tell is the recipient of this fine pic of your polydactyl daughter?

I already mentioned it: It's for my AOL Journal "By the Way," for which I get paid to post.

See, did I mention that I don't read all that well? And yet, I was an English major. Funny, huh? NOT!

Douglas | July 24, 2006 09:16 PM

But can you take fingers away?
