I'm not sure why I'm doing this...  
I'm intensely neurotic about showing people photos of me. It feels much more revealing than anything I might write about myself. And I like the idea of people projecting their idealized images of what I might look like onto my online persona. ("Yes, you're right--I look *exactly* like Daniel Radcliffe!") But I've been thinking that when I get down around my optimum weight, I might post before and after pictures. The thought of which unnerves me. So I thought I'd warm myself up by posting what is probably the only photo I've had taken in the last two years; at least the only one I like.

This is actually my work-badge photo. It was taken in October of last year, and I was 20-25 pounds heavier then. Also, my hair's longer now and I lost those glasses. But anyway. Maybe I've decided that I need to stop hiding behind my persona. Or maybe I'm just incredibly bored and unwilling to begin editing documents on third-party merchant product variations. Hmm.

You are so cute.

I already knew that, but now I have been reminded. :-)

I nibble you and your little cat too. *mrrrrr* :)

You are not only adorable, you look surprisingly like my mental picture of you. Freaky!

I HAVE to echo this - I am not sure how, but you look almost exactly like I pictured. And you look fantastic.

Thank you! :) *hug*

Still. So. Adorable. =)
Anna S.: cat_chickeneliade on August 23rd, 2005 03:22 am (UTC)
As are you, my little buttered muffin. I hope to see you at Escapade next year. At long last! If I make plane reservations on time. (Anna S: So predictable. So sad. So never there.)

Hey! And you *do* have a girly-Daniel-Radcliffe vibe goin' on!

And... it is a big deal, revealing yourself here. So many of us are used to hiding in many small ways- my real name, face, voice, life, all tucked away out of sight to all but a vanishingly small number.

So, good on ya. And it's nice to have a face to place with those gorgeous fics. I read every one of your S/X stories this weekend, and swooned from statt to finish I'll have you know. "Subtleties", a huge favourite, and the spark that gave me the latest drawing posted, nocturne.

Thank you! *kiss*

I am red with blushing and happily read. :)

You're completely adorable. And how is it that you actually had a good picture taken of you for a work I.D.? I'm forced to conclude that you're even cuter than this photo reveals. :)
Anna S.: christian-bale-smileeliade on August 23rd, 2005 03:25 am (UTC)
There is some small Dilbertian demon of work-IDs that was apparently taking a smoke break while I was in front of the camera. I feel very lucky. *g*

Not sure I'm cuter, but I look a lot different now. If I had a camera I might take some pictures, but I've narrowly avoided that fate by not buying one. :)

cathexyscathexys on August 22nd, 2005 09:37 pm (UTC)
wow, you're posting pictures unflocked..that's brave!! but it allows me to see your picture and it's a great one! i had no real idea what you'd look like (i'm horribly wrong with imagining people so i don't even try :-), but you're very cute right there!!!
Anna S.: daniel-stunningeliade on August 23rd, 2005 03:26 am (UTC)
Thank you, sweetie. :>) *hug*

Aw, you look cute there. And I'm essentially a complete stranger so I have no stake in just saying that to be nice. :)
Anna S.: ds-frasereliade on August 23rd, 2005 03:27 am (UTC)
*grin* Thank you! I will bask a little more then. :)
LadyStarlightladystarlightsj on August 22nd, 2005 09:41 pm (UTC)
You are so cute!

And (squints), kinda Radcliff-y, yis.

You are very kind. Possibly myopic, but kind. *g*
Sylvikefishsanwitt on August 22nd, 2005 09:57 pm (UTC)
OMG! You *are* Daniel Radcliffe :)

Nah, but you *are* cute - it's a great picture.

And you look *nothing* like I thought you would!
Anna S.: buffy_mooneliade on August 22nd, 2005 10:01 pm (UTC)

You were thinking blonde and perky, right, like a hefty Reese Witherspoon? *g*

wow. public, no less. that's dayum'd brave. Even posting this icon of me sort of freaks me out, a bit, since it's what I look like.

But, you know, this is good. Now we'll know what you look like when you come to next summer's writercon, right?!! yes?!!

It's weird, isn't it? It's so much easier for me to filter myself through words.

But, you know, this is good. Now we'll know what you look like when you come to next summer's writercon, right?!! yes?!!

Not sure. I don't go to a lot of cons. But you never know. :)

I think you look lovely - thanks for sharing, it's cool having an image of who you're reading about. Cute glasses, too.
Anna S.: johnny-deppeliade on August 23rd, 2005 03:31 am (UTC)
Aren't those glasses cute?! I lost them a few weeks ago. I'm still sniffling a little about it. But then again, I have an excuse to buy new glasses, so hey. ;)

Certified adorable.

Julia, unwordy

You are lovely in your unwordiness. :)

You are so much cuter than Daniel Radcliffe.

*You* are a sweetie. :)
