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!

I love the photo of you! Lovely striped trousers and nice suit jacket. Very distinguished. And your hair is gorgeous.

'Gators are fascinating, but I'd want to stay at a more than respectful distance. Preferably with a fence between me and it.

I've read quite a few posts about the Orlando get-together, and it sounds as though a marvelous time was had by all. Hurrah for meeting fandom friends! Especially lucky for those who got to hang out with Miss M. :)

Thank you! ♥

I was at a respectful enough distance for myself. It was far enough away that I knew even if it lunged, I'd have time to run back to the fenced pool area--but it wasn't showing any signs of aggression or even interest in its surroundings, so I wasn't worried.

Orlando was certainly a marvellous time! And spending time with Miss M was fantastic. (:
