I Am A Gremlin (Quick Change Of Subject)

it's super late and a few good posts are way, way overdue.

uh, as usual.

not that i have any.

but so just to change the subject already, i will now post a picture of me.

actually, it's a picture of my shadow. i took it in the cab ride home from a sunday at zeitgeist. i'd had my hair up in pigtail-bun things, thinking i was cute. but there are no mirrors at zeitgeist -- because why would there be? -- so i hadn't really noticed how my semi-neatly done hair (after a few hours of socializing in a beer garden on a hot day) had gone awry.

until i got into a cab to go home and saw my shadow.

and laughed at myself.

and took a picture.


i don't think "fly aways" captures it...




(i know this is a lame post, but we needed to move on. feel free to ignore.)

  1. i like the one on top that looks kind of like a swan, or maybe some kind of long-necked dinosaur (perhaps a plesiosaur).

  2. I can see the swan that benamuckee mentioned.

    When I first looked at it I thought it looked like an outline of Zoe the muppet from Sesame Street (I have small kids...I don't actually watch it myself....much).

  3. Ahhh, god bless the subject change!

    I see Medusa!

    Of course, this would have to be Medusa's much nicer, much funnier, less 'likely to kill men when she looks at them' sister.

    Who attracts men via the internet.

    ;-}

    Greetings, I had the opportunity to visit your blog. I found it very interesting.

    Whenever you get the chance, you should visit my site at employment work at home where I deal with employment work at home issues.

  6. oh lord... the work at home spammers have found personal blogs... eeek...

    I think your hair looks like princess leia (sp?) after a romp with Han Solo...

  7. I don't see the swan...or the dinosaur

    ReplyDelete
  8. I don't see a swan, maybe a dinasour, looks more to me that you just woke up and didn't bother brushing your hair.

  9. I was sporting pretty much the same 'do on Saturday --- copying my friend's 12 year old daughter. Worked much better on her =)

  10. I see the swan, or at least a swan. It's perched right on top of her head, facing to the right.

    (just teasin'!)

  12. i don't see the problem. that's about what i look like all the time. :)

  13. sigh... I'm boycotting your blog until we go back to bashing the mystery a-hole date guy.

    Starting.... now....

  14. I just love those "pigtail-bun" things, but they never seem to look good on me**sigh**

    ReplyDelete
  15. I love pigtail buns! I will never be too old for them...or those plastic barrettes with little animals and flowers and stuff on them. Looks like it must have been a windy day.

  16. Oh god...blogger spam *gag*

    Great hair though. I bet you were wearing it like no one else can!

  17. I guess I'm the only who sees the loch ness monster instead of a dinosaur?

    ReplyDelete
  18. Oh wow, if I could count high enough to know how many times I have had that look going on when I thought I was looking awesome!

    YAYAYAYAY, thanks for the smile

    ReplyDelete
  19. rincaro ~ i see the loch ness monster too. hilarious.

  20. what's the deal with trying to sell sh*t on blogger comments?
    Love the hair- it's so Robert Smith.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Wow! Right after I posted that comment, my FAVORITE Cure song (Lovesong) came on the Internet radio. Your blog is magic!

    ReplyDelete
  22. who among us hasn't returned home from an evening out, only to get a shock upon glancing into a well-lit mirror?
    oh. you mean that's just me?
    p.s. love your blog.

  23. Ha! I have had that moment many times! The latest was a friends wedding where I thought I was all cute....until I looked in the mirror and realized my carefully straightened hair had freaked out and morphed into some sort of whacked out frizzy afro. Damn the humidity.

  24. i see a preying mantis on top! ah, the mission was warm & windy while we were partying in foggy & cold golden gate park sunday afternoon.

  25. I think the American Psychiatric Association shoud adobt "What do you see in K's hair" as the new Ink-Blot personality test.

    :D

  26. I have a question about Nessie ...


    isn't general consensus that Nessie IS some kind of pre-historic dino that has magically survived all these years?

    ReplyDelete
  27. Whew! At first I thought you caught me stalking you outside of Zeitgeist, (shadow against the wooden fence as I peek in), since you didn't bother to call me to join you.

    ReplyDelete
  28. The hair is so ...ahem...breezily elegant a.k.a Elegant hair caught in a breeze :)

    ReplyDelete
  29. dude, nessie is obviously a plesiosaur. hello?!?

    ReplyDelete
  30. yeah I agree with hutch. preying mantiseseses. Making out. Had you waited a litte longer you'd have one less preying mantis shadow.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I really like this picture. It reminds me of the shadow the femme fatale casts on the private eye's wall before she walks in to change his life while he checks out her gams.

    :)

    ReplyDelete
  32. I think you've updated Lee Friedlander's famous self-portrait of his shadow in the back of a woman's fur coat.

    ReplyDelete
  33. OMG Anon @ 5:45! You're right...that's perfect.

  34. just the start of the danger of carrying your digital camera with you everywhere...
    :-)

    ReplyDelete
  35. Now that you're armed with the digital camera and suffer from 3-candle-picture-itis, I bet you can look forward to another "Is *that* what I look like????" experience that I discovered at a well-supplied, open-bar'd wedding this weekend: the 122 pictures of you and your cohorts, engaging in what can only be described as unflattering drunkmonkeying while vigorously memorexing every moment.

    Instead of in the cab, or, say, while you're brushing your teeth that evening, you find out two days later when you upload the pictures to your computer. "132 pictures!!! I only remember taking about 10..."

    No wonder my data card is full...
