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!

You looked chic for dinner every day! But then you look fetching even in rainbow PJs, so there :-)

That's a great 'gator pic! I haven't had the chance yet to look through the picture CD, but now I really want to!

D'awr, thanks Queenie. You're too kind to me. :P I look like a loony in my PJs, but that shall never deter me from wearing them for too much of the day when I'm able too! :B

Mmm, I was late to go through the CD, too. Just ignore the unflattering shots of me. ;D
