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 look amazing here.

The only thing that I've noticed about these pics is how close all those houses are. I'm not sure I'd feel at ease with other holiday-ers living so close by. And the lawn is so well kept, too. Very organised, compared to what we have here.

Thank you, dear! ♥

The lawns were definitely very kept. I imagine, beyond just being a good idea for holiday goers thinking it's a well-kept area, that it's best to keep surprise alligator attacks down. Other surprise critters, too; there are a number there.

I know that in my hometown I'm used to houses quite far apart with woods in-between. After spending time in England, though (and now in Providence), I'm quite used to houses being a lot closer than that and even attached. So it felt just fine to me! It was nice that there weren't many other renters around us throughout the week; we didn't have to worry about the 10pm 'quiet-time' as much!
