My friend Karen at A Strange Life Revisited recently wrote a post in which she admitted to waking up with Grandpa Munster hair. I got after her for not sharing a photo of the incident with her readers. To me, this is instant blog material. But, I have to step back and realize that not everyone shares my total lack of shame.
I am not shy AT ALL and don’t mind looking like a dufus. So, when I rolled out of bed this morning and noticed my image in the mirror, I knew I had to capture it on film.
Unfortunately, the photo is not as funny as I thought it would be. What WOULD have been funny is if I had set up a secondary video camera to film my frustration at trying to get a photo with my image centered. I must have taken 50 shots and in each succeeding photo my charming smile melted more and more into the grimace you see in the picture.
What’s worse, is that THIS CAMERA HAS A SETTING FOR TAKING YOUR OWN PICTURE! I’ve used it many times and it has never failed. It automatically waits until your face is centered in the frame before it clicks. I didn’t even need to use a mirror! But, at 4:30 a.m. who thinks of these things.

I am still sifting through my Hawaii photos–turns out I took over 400 of them. I want to use some of the best to illustrate my adventures, so stay tuned for that.
I upgraded to WordPress 2.7 this morning and I am totally lost. After reading about some of the features, I was seriously worried it would blow-up my blog. I was sure there would be a conflict in the comment system since I use a few plugins there. But, so far, so good. 🙂
I am doing a little experiment to raise my pagerank (currently at 4). I think I can raise my pagerank, legitimately, without gaming the system, without adding any siginificant backlinks or changing my blog in any major way. Let’s see if it works; if it does, I’ll clue you in on the secret.
