I've been frustrating myself to no end with resumes and the lot, but I just took a break to go through the Orlando pictures from lash_larue's camera.

I think Lash has taken what is now my favourite photo of me, ever.

It reminds me of the woman I could grow to be. A little (in stature, and naught else) Grubbly-Sprout figure watching in adoration and awe as an alligator ambles by. Also, yes, it's still Florida despite the suit, I assure you. I just enjoyed dressing up for dinner; that night I wore a rainbow tie for a flair of queer eccentricity.

And as for the gator, zir suit required no embellishing:

I didn't ask for zir permission, but ze didn't seem particularly shy and outwitted a few 'gator wranglers, so I don't think ze would really mind the international fame.

For size comparison, although the tail wasn't up. I watched this beauty until ze was completely around the bend (as I have occasionally been accused of myself).

That's all for this narcissistic post. Alas, back to the grindstone with me. I hate resumes. I hate writing introductory emails, too. Especially to an editor of scientific literature. *shrinks*

ETA: I hope you don't mind my posting these, Lash! If you do I'll gladly take them down and apologise profusely!

Great photos! No wonder you all had such a fine time. The alligator is cool, but I admit, it would have given me pause to have him so close and free.

I will say that I was sensibly more interested in getting up close and personal with the little pool lizard than the big, toothy, prehistoric reptile--but I was fascinated nonetheless. I was a good enough distance away and keeping my eye out on Miss M, too. (: I was just glad to see it around after meeting the 'gator wranglers; I kept hoping I'd get to see a real, live one. I can perhaps blame the hours I spent watching Crocodile Hunter in my youth and the fact that Steve Irwin (RIP) and I shared a birthday.
