I remember that picture!

One of my fellow blogging friends does a spot on her blog called "Flashback Friday" that has been a lot of fun. It's always great to find out the inner workings of how someone came to be.

I'm not attempting to mimic that spot at all here, but I had to share something just silly. Yesterday I asked Ted to forward me all the pictures of me that showed a) how beautiful I am, and b) just how charismatic I can be. I had to include two of them for a little email I sent out today. I found an ad on craigslist that was making a casting call for female scientists who were smart, energetic, and charismatic. Hello!! Yoo-hoo!!! HEY, MORONS! I'M OVER HERE!!

So I did it. I sent in what they wanted. Hey, you never know, and I didn't want to watch some cool science show in the future with a dry hostess and think "I coulda done that WAY better". I have a problem with that most awful of phrases: I wish I would have...

I guffawed at the pictures Ted sent me. I had totally forgotten about most of them, and that's where the flashback comes in. This one cracked me up. Can you imagine opening up a resume email and seeing this?




I look like such a perv! Or that I just found the most interesting shell-shaped toilet in the world and I'm concentrating on using it. Which, of course, is also perverted.

Oh, and this was on our honeymoon. Ted and I had been married about 4 days. The boy knew what he was getting himself into, but it's things like this that make me wonder if he ever considered backing out while there was still time...

AAhhahahaha! I think you're a magnet for phallic photo opps. But PLEEEEASE tell me you didn't send that one out for your job application. [wince]

I seriously hope you get the job -- you'd be fabulous. They'd be fools not to hire you. No one would ever see science the same way again! (See above) :)

Hey -- I have a blogger friend who does Flashback Fridays too -- Twas Brillig?

First off...you can totally mimic flashback friday because a) you already hate me and b) I totally stole it from someone else.

Um, the picture, yea...Not sure which category Ted thought that was. I mean, you look totally beautiful in it. Or perhaps he thought it showed your charisma. Okay, you're just perverted.

But how much would I LOVE to see you as a host on a science show?! Seriously, I would.

That is a lovely, lovely picture. Haha! Giant seashell? Why, I must sit inside it and have my picture taken while gazing randomly in another direction! Makes perfect sense to me. :-)

BTW -- did you make that cake?

Allison said...

No, I didn't make the cake, but I can certainly appreciate the time and effort that whoever did it put in. It's cute, huh? I'm going to feature a different baked good every few weeks or so for sheer pleasure. Maybe one of these days it will be my creation... You'll just have to wait and see...

Baked goods are only half the story...
