I was going to put up a quick post saying TGIF, but then I found this picture on my phone (of myself ) that was so horrific that I had to rush off and do my hair and makeup before I could make a public statement.
This ugly picture of me was taken on Monday. I can’t say its the worst picture ever taken of me (because I’ve produced some real barkers) but its pretty nasty.
On Monday The Dark Knight came home from work and I was clinging to the precipice of a big, jagged, mental-meltdown cliff. I had to get out.
So I did. I decided to go to La Cantera, which is a beautiful outdoor mall type place here in San Antonio. Lets see if I can find some snapshots…..
I just wanted to go get a donut and sit on a bench and cram it into my face. So I left the house. Without looking in the mirror. I had puffy stress-tear-eyes. I had no makeup on. I was wearing cowboy boots and SHORTS! What was I thinking? Nothing. I was thinking no thoughts whatsoever.
But then I walked into Barnes and Nobles and Jenny Lawson was there doing a book reading. It hadn’t started yet so I decided to stay. Needless to say, she had me in tears (the laughy kind) while reading a chapter from her book. (I was sitting right behind her husband)
It really is a bummer that I looked like such a greasy toad because it was fun for me. I needed fun. As The Dark Knight would say…
Afterwards I bought a cookie the size of my head and went out walking and cramming.
Heaven. I’m just glad I didn’t run into anyone I know.
Ok, fine, I’ll show you the greasy toad picture but only after I’ve blurred it and made it dim to the point of irrecognizability.. .(spell-check says no…)
