I just didn't want anyone to think that my mood is actually super mopey right now--only when I think about writing--so I'm posting a bad-quality picture of me in a ridiculous hat.

Because it's very difficult for a person to be mopey and wear a ridiculous hat, and so in my brain of rainbows and unicorns, it's proof that I can't be mopey.



It's true that I'm not smiling, but it's because I have a big spot/zit above my lip, and it's harder to cover that while smiling. :B No one move my pinky.

I wore this hat when I was 17, during college interviews in England. I had more spots then, too. Guess it's appropriate.

Also pictured: Mr Cuddlekins, one of the softest bears around. I recently rescued him from the two Labrador Retrievers I had been house-sitting for when I had thought I lost him. (In reality, they had yoinked him from me. Mr Cuddlekins was off on a very slobbery adventure.)

Time for more fic-reading!

Mr Cuddlekins wanted to add the picture of us being cheery, despite looking blue:

i am most envious of your ridiculous hat! it's true that one can never be mopey in a ridiculous hat. the more ridiculous the hat directly correlates to the prominence of joy in the person.

anyway

RIGHT?! Ridiculous hats are the cure to so many things. Also, thank you!

Someday, when I have a less shoddy camera to work with and no giant red spot on my facial area, I should take a picture of me in all my ridiculous hats. I have less than I once had (what with moving continent-to-continent for a few years) but the collection is growing again.

And they're always a huge hit with the kidlings, and even the teenagers offer up a smirk or a chuckle. I CAN BREAK YOUR ICY WALLS, TEENAGERS, I KNOW THERE ARE PEOPLE INSIDE; YOU CAN'T HIDE FROM ME! MWUAHAHA!

...this is what leads me to believe that I will inevitably end up a crazy high school teacher someday...

Awwwr you leave the best comments. ♥

Erm, Mr Cuddlekins seems to think you meant him, so he's off searching in my pile of belongings for a ring...I hope you don't mind group marriages?

Love the ridiculous hat - and you! Have missed you frightfully . . . are you available for chat this evening? ::looks hopeful and sends a big hug to both you and Mr. Cuddlekins::

D'awr, thanks! I've missed you frightfully too, and am again so sorry to have missed the chat. =( I'm sending a big hug back (Mr Cuddlekins is perpetually sending hugs) and hoping that you're available for another chat soon.

Do you do any other sort of instant-communication style? Occasional A(ol)I(nstant)M(essenger) or Yahoo or GTalk or MSN or Facebook or anything like that? Being email-buddies also works too, and is faster than snailmail penpals, even if a touch less personal. :B (Though I do intend to write you back, even though it is taking me half an age as I continue to work through all my belongings!)
